Sailing Ship COLUMBIA!
After the Haunted Mansion meet we decided to give the sailing Ship Columbia a go since it looked to be sailing and we'd heard good things about the 'pirates' takeover of the ship. Turns out that the Pirates don't really take over the Columbia at all but a good time is had by all and you get to experience and learn a little about sailing from the pirates' point of view, as well living before and aft of the mast.. (our pirate guide "Quill" showed us around below deck the Captains Quarters and the map room among other quick tour of the Columbia.  =)  Here's some of the pix I was able to edit and post:
