One of the more fantastical items on display was this cool Mermaid Coffin prop used to carry the captured mermaid, 'Syrena', through the jungle in the movie. Exhibited behind that was the jungle pools set model.

Next are a collection of props used by 'Captain Barbossa' in the fourth cinematic installment in the Disney franchise, including his new wooden peg leg, his sword, the china crockery he drinks from on the Providence ship and even the jar of poisonous frogs, whose venom he uses to coat his sword to get his revenge against Blackbeard.
