Last week, we told you that on-ride photos were coming to Pirates of the Caribbean at the Magic Kingdom. Well, with this addition, an old friend has returned.

Removed during the 2006 refurbishment that brought the movie characters to the ride, a new version of the infamous talking skull that once stood before the drop is now in place. While it isn’t exactly the same, it is similar to the more famous version in the Disneyland attraction.

The Skull says a few words before a lightning flash goes off from his eyes, along with the crack of thunder. While the flash is a little bright, we are happy to see that it was at least well-themed. Sadly, it is not the original dialogue by X. Atencio, but it is cool nonetheless.

On-ride photo and the talking skull can now be seen daily at Pirates of the Caribbean at the Magic Kingdom.
