It's coming along great! I really like the addition of the shredded foam foliage - it adds tremendously to the "abandoned" look.

Becky is an inspiration!

You have a card model of the 'Jolly Roger' ??? Please spill the beans!
Long time back some one at Disney Experience was researching one.but I've not seen it published.



I do have an original Revel plastic model of it, but that's too valuable to build now, so I'd really love a paper one.

It's on the way!

BUT....keep in mind this is a model of the restaurant that lived in Fantasyland from 1955 to 1982. You'll have to overlook "the side door"! LOL

I'm well aware that it is a model of 'The Chicken of the Sea' restaurant Becky, but if you do your homework, she was originally built as the 'Jolly Roger' and later converted into a CotS restaurant. I guess I'll have to go searching for the pictures now.

I've just been looking back through Robert Nava's fantastic video build (I haven't watched #16 yet). I never dreamt that it would end up so big and detailed, but it does look great in the pictures. I wonder if it's within my humble abilities to remove and patch over that door?

It really is a Jolly Roger model that I desire, not a model of a restaurant that I've never eaten in. One day I hope to be well enough to see for myself how good a copy the one in Paris is, but that likelihood is looking slimmer now.

The more I search through my (very) loosely catalogued picture files, the more I'm becoming convinced that what I remembered as early pictures of the 'Chicken' would seem to be pictures of the Paris ship. I'm SURE I've got pictures of the Florida one wearing the 'Jolly Roger' name somewhere though. Perhaps they were taken in the period between the removal of the Chicken of the sea concession and it's final destruction when they tried to move it.

Or, more likely it's a touch of senile dementia setting in.

Sod the potential value of it ... I think I'm gonna build one of the plastic ones.

July 18th 1955 (first day Disneyland was open to the general public):








She was still under construction during that first summer:





But eventually she took on the look we all knew her by:

I used the Wicked Wench because, well....I'm impatient.

PS. They did consider moving the restaurant as part of the 1982 remodel of Fantasyland. But, believe it or not, nobody at Disney could figure out how to move a concrete pirate ship without breaking it. Even 30 feet or so!


And there was never a Jolly Roger that elaborate at the Magic Kingdom of Walt Disney World. Only the Wicked Wench inside Pirates of the Caribbean. HOWEVER. There was a small wrecked ship at Discovery Island:

Sorry everyone, I am asleep at the switch here, Be home in a few days and I will look into my model. It is Red and I do not recall a door (not a hatch if it is a restaurant!) and let everyone what I have. It was free someplace.
