    Exclamation Pirates Update - promotional material!

    On the contrary to what many think about a new pirates update not coming soon, I found this on the back of a Playstation game manual:



    This is almost iddentical to the WDW Pirates update promotional items, and I seriosly doubt that this advert can be for anything BUT an update to the ride. I whole promotion for a Jack meet 'n' greet, I doubt it.

    Well, actually I think it is promotion for the ride. And since there's an actor standing outside the attraction Disney can use Jack Sparrow in the add.

    Thanks for posting the pic, scorchio. Interesting that they should use a graphic so similar to the WDW promotion, but until something more substantial appears, I'm afraid I'll hedge my bets and side with milo_vhw. This is more likely an ad for the park as a whole, and the Cap'n Jack Meet & Greet in particular. I'm not saying it couldn't happen, but I don't think it'll be this year. (Knowing my luck, they'll announce it tomorrow!)

    Has it not occurred to you that the "Meet Captain Jack" slogan might be advertising the fact that you can now meet Captain Jack?

    It is a bit dramatic for a meet 'n' greet.

    But yes, that's probably what it means.

    Yeah, I see your point.
    I just don't see Disney announcing additions to the attraction via the back of a leaflet in a PlayStation game.
    Surely it would have leaked out of WDI Paris.

    Too dramatic for a meet and great, too mysterious for solid additions.

    Too true actually. The advert seemed too over the top for a meet and greet. In fact, I've never seen a meet n greet advertised before. Maybe I was just being optimistic about an update, as I'm hoping to go to DLP in October.

    Isn't it just a general advertisement for Disneyland Paris trying to cash in on the popularity of 'Pirates Of The Caribbean'?

    I would have thought that myself, but why would they specifically say Jack Sparrow is at POTC, when he isn't yet? I could understand if they said meet Jack at DLP, but this implies he is part of the attraction.

    It may be a bit dramatic, but I had a 'Meet Chicken Little' add on the back of my C.L game, so I wouldn't be surprised...

    Re: Pirates Update - promotional material!

    I studied one of the movie posters at my cinema when the Pirates movie came out and it had in captions at the bottom meet Jack Sparrow at Disneyland Resort Paris.I strongly believe if the new movie additions were coming it would of been talked about by now in all the 15th Anniversary promotional stuff.

    From all accounts the Paris Pirates of the Carribean attraction is in a bit of a run down state lately so I expect if we were to ever get the new additions it will come after a long refurbisment of the attraction.

    Re: Pirates Update - promotional material!

    The ride update has been officialy confirmed about two months ago and should be done anytime soon (it was to open by the end of may, but I guess some delay may have occured)... the advert on the PS manual is for the meet 'n greet, that has been in front of the ride since the cinema-release of Dead Man's Chest.
