This is something that’s been in the rumor mill for a long time now. A lot of POTC fans have voiced during the last year whether they agree or disagree with this change. However, it sounds as if this change is going to happen whether fans want it or not. The sensitivity around the inclusion of a “wench auction” has some fans stating that this change could not come soon enough. The change that will be brought about will still contain the “redhead”, albeit a different capacity as you’ll see in the artist’s rendering below:
Disney fans, over the years, have been forced to accept change to attractions throughout the WDW resort. And what fans should realize is that change is inevitable. We’ve seen many things change over the years. However, Disney still has a way to take the current changes and tie them to previous attractions of yesterday. For instance, you can still hear the theme to If You Had Wings if you listen to the music in Tomorrowland and on the Peoplemover.
What do you think of the new changes to POTC?
