This was news to me, as I have never seen it before - there were live actors in the lineup for PoTC. They was a Jack Sparrow in the big room where the standby and fastpass lines merged. He would pop in to the openings and scare guests and then interact with them.

They did this during the Halloween party. There were live actors in both the queue and the ride itself. It was a pretty cool addition.

Did you see this in the park Today? That WOULD be very unusual - Disney has started doing this for some special occasions - namely the Not So Scary Halloween Parties - but not during regular park operating hours.

They've done it before. I remember seeing Jack popping in and out of the queue areas, but it was quite a while ago- not long after they put his animatronic in the ride.

This was something they started for the MNSSHP.
I guess they do it at random now but with the party there were CM's throughout the queue and some in the ride and it was a whole storyline about finding a wanted person.
I bet this is just Jack in the queue and nothing more.

Wow, still pretty weird - was it just Jack Sparrow? I recall seeing him wander through the queue back in the day on the way to his Pirate Tutorial show, but never just hanging out in the queue for an indeterminate period of time.
We only saw Jack. We were in the fastpass line and didn’t get a chance to see much or if there were others in the line. He definitely was there for a quite some time though and not in transit somewhere else.

They did it as well at the Villains after hours party. Cast members in the queue and then Barbosa in one of the scenes.

This has happened for awhile. Jack Sparrow who does meet and greets outside the attraction will usually have a set scheduled to roam around the queue or outside the attraction.
There still are special moments like this throughout they just don’t always get mentioned or spread to the masses by the bloggers.

We've only experienced the live actors during Halloween. About five years ago, there was a guy who played Jack Sparrow that was a dead ringer for Johnny Depp. I had to look real close to confirm, and I still wasn't 100% certain. My daughter was in the college program at Disney at the time and she said that the guy was eventually fired because he was playing the part outside of working at Disney.
