Reginald Pirates from Jack

Greetings Ghost Fans,

continuing a topic from last week, we move onto Reginald, Constance's 4th husband. Reginald was an explorer. Many of his spoils are seen around his portrait in the attic. In his portrait he is seated in a very nice chair. This chair is the same as the ones featured in the Haunted Mansion Movie Ballroom.

What is more interesting is that, The Haunted Mansion is not the only attraction in New Olreans Square with this chair. Captain Jack in the Treasure Room at the end of Pirates of the Caribbean is lounging in one as well!

With my own bit of added speculation, Haunted Mansion is a present day affair. Pirates of the Caribbean happened in the past. Perhaps on one of his many adventures, Reginald stumbled upon an old ornate chair in a Spanish treasure room and decided to bring it home.

I want to give credit for the second photo to the amazing photographer Jack (a.k.a. Hollywood1939 from the MiceChat message board). Be sure to check out his other photos, they are amazing!

It's great to have the photos side by side like that. Maybe you can find a decent pic of Reginald's too? Anyway, even if we go along with the 19th c. presentation of the HM, that's still a century or so later than POTC, so your story idea still works. And besides, Reginald is explicitly dated to the 1870's, so we're encouraged to follow that imaginative lead.

I love the idea of all the various attractions existing in a shared "universe". Obviously some, like Splash Mountain, are incompatible, but PotC, HM, JC, BTMRR, and even Alien Encounter or Indianna Jones could all be simply different places and times in a single continuous history.
