Disney Axes Auction Scene from Pirates of the Caribbean Attraction

“We wants the redhead!” is a phrase that not only fans have associated with Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean attraction for the past 6 decades but it’s also been a marketing slogan for Disney that graces t-shirts and a variety of other products throughout the parks.

Today Disney has announced that beginning in 2018, as part of a refurbishment to the attraction, the auction scene featuring ride-goers favorite redhead would be altered significantly.

The auctioneers will no longer be telling the pirates to “take a wench for a bride” but will be auctioning goods instead.

This is not the first time that Disney has made changes to the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction. Prior to1997, a section of the dark ride had the pirates chasing the women around in the city only to find in the last scene, the larger woman was chasing the man.

The update made it so that rather than be sexually suggesting, though as a naive and innocent child I just found the scene to be funny, they added food to the hands of the pirates and brooms to the hands of the women.

Overall, fans seem to be pretty mixed on the news on these new updates as traditionalist feel it painted the pirates in a true light and is a product of the era it serves to represent. Other feel that this is a positive movement in the quest for women’s rights.

How do you feel about it?

Changes are expected to happen in 2018 at both Disneyland and Walt Disney World.

Deja vu…

Disney Parks has announced that their resident band will be playing their final show on March 30th of this year.

Some may remember that The Mad T Party closed up shop on November 30th of last year in order to make room for a live Frozen event that never really seemed to take off.

There is no word yet as to what will be following the popular Alice In Wonderland themed band but hopefully it’s something just as engaging…I vote for the return of elecTRONica!

Today, Disneyland park goers may have noticed some testing going on at the entrance to Space Mountain in Tomorrowland.

According to sources, random guests possessing a FastPass were asked to place the barcode on their ticket against a panel similar to those used at the Walt Disney World MagicBand kiosks.

Now that MagicBands have been around long enough to prove not only the convenience value to the guests but the marketing value to Disney Parks, it was only a matter of time before the system made its way to the West Coast.

There is no confirmed timeframe as to when the MagicBand system may hit the Disneyland Resort but we will report back when the news hits!
