    Yes, but only just! I've come hot foot from dlrp.fr, where they've got quite a detailed report on the rumours. I've been wondering for a while whether or not DLRP would see such changes to their POTC. After all, we already have the best version in the world (IMHO), so do we really need them?

    I'd be more than happy to see Captains Jack and Barbossa weigh anchor in Paris, provided the Imagineers can find something worthy of them. Integrate them properly into the action, throw in a few in-jokes with the existing pirates.

    I hope this rumour is borne out!

    Great timing. If the changes turn out to be a flop in CA, they can always save the money and stick it into something more pressing. Like more name changes, haha.

    Well I'm sorta gutted about this.

    POTC at Paris is not only the best in the world... it will be one of two remaining POTCs in the world without the overlay, and I'd rather ride Paris than Tokyo - I've heard Tokyo's is just a clone of Californias, but I know Paris, as with Space Mountain, Thunder Mountain, Peter Pan's Flight and countless others, is a unique twist on the concept.

    But now Jack has gone French.

    I hope POTC will remain just the same, I don't want they change anything, it's perfect as it is now !

    Good luck with that hope...we wished for the same thing for America...didn't happen.

    This is intehrsting. Fits in with the rumors from last year about more PoTC teh movie tie-ins in Adventureland...but wouldn't EuroDisney be better off spending the money on something new?

    The thing that should soothe any fears to a certain extent is that the whole overlay is a Californian-born idea. The thing is, in recent years a lot of good things have happened at Disneyland, things that were actual improvements whilst remaining respectful to the history of the park. Not so much in Paris. So I'm sure it won't be a complete drama.

    From the sounds of it from people who have ridden both: bad.

    Better thrills with the launch from the bottom of the cannon. Loss of story, new effects, but worse music and less cohesive theme.

    I wouldn't say it is bad music, it just doesn't fit that Space Mountain. I heard a clip of the new music written by Michael Giacchino (who wrote the new music for DL's & HKDL's Space Mountain and The Incredibles), and it isn't bad, but it doesn't belong at Disneyland Paris, it would be a cool song for a second daytime track at DL/HKDL, or for MK/TDL if they got soundtracks. The more valiant brassier Steve Bramson, "De La Terre a La Lune" was much more fitting for the original storyline at DLP Space Mountain. They could have kept it even if they added new effects.

    As for POTC change in Paris, maybe if the Anaheim or Orlando changes don't work they could try them at Paris, as maybe it would have a better audience or Tokyo, even.

    Frankly speaking I was not huge fan of Space Mountain - Mission 2, but today it's only the name which bothers me. The ride is cool and after riding the new California Version I can tell you that Space Mountain in Paris is just awsome!!!!

    Well, I've just got off the line with a friend of mine who's a member of the POTC management in Paris, and he's confirmed that the movie overlay is definitely going ahead. Turns out this had been decided upon quite some time ago.

    Whether you welcome the changes or not, you'll be pleased to hear that the funds for the overlay won't be coming out of the resort's budget for new attractions. As it's simply a question of adding a few extra animatronics and effects, the overlay is being classed as a refurbishment, so management are dipping into an entirely different money pot for it.

    The changes are going ahead for the resort's 15th birthday next year, in time for the third movie.
