    Sad 10 Days Left 'till Pirates Goes Hollywood

    Well, 10 days left until our beloved POTC sees the likes of Johnny Depp and Company. All we can do is weep and pray that this is only a phase, along the line of under 5 years, please, just until the saga ends and they are no longer releasing it on DVD. Well, ride it out everyone because this is the last you'll see of some beloved segments. I'm off to Disneyland tomorrow to say a fond farewell to Captain Barbossa's predessecor along with the pirate ship as well, and the old man's speech through the dark tunnel, and various other things. 10 days, then it will be 9, than 7 then times up!!!! You best start beilivin' in Pirates Movies, your'e in one.

    Somebody seems overly pessimistic.
    I can't really be the only one looking forward to this am I?

    Actually, I'm looking forward to it, too. It'll be interesting to see what changes they make.

    Re: 10 Days Left 'till Pirates Goes Hollywood

    ahhh come on, why are we being so dang mellodramatic, it might not be what your afraid of, it might actualy be kinda cool.

    Look Pirates is one of my all time favorites, do I want to see it changed, well not especia;y I love the original (pre PC) but change happens, so roll with it. If we just sit here and lament all the time all the changes well then we're not really loving the park for what it is, just what it was. and Frankly, I love the park all of it, Old, new, past and future.

    Re: 10 Days Left 'till Pirates Goes Hollywood

    Rode it a couple times on Wednesday for the last time before it goes through its transformation. I said my farewells in my own little way, and am hoping that the new changes that are impending will breathe some new exciting life into it! Forget about the Depp animatronics for a moment, just think of the cool new effects we are bound to get as well as audio and visual enhancements.

    If people go into it with a pi$$ poor attitude theyre gonna hate it no matter what. Have an open mind when you ride it again for the first time and ya might just be pleasantly surprised! And if you dont like it then, you may complain

    Re: 10 Days Left 'till Pirates Goes Hollywood

    ok, I'm going to quote the Annual Passholders newsletter "Backstage Pass"

    Avast, ye landlubbers! Let it be known that the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction will be in dry dock from March through June in order to swab the decks for an enhanced piratein' adventure. Not to worry, though, matey. The same motley crew of buccaneeers will still be raidin' and pillagin', just like old times. (After all, this be the last attraction personally captained by Walt Disney himself, an' no one wants to cross the cap'n). Tho', if ye keep yer eyes and ears open, ye might catch a few new surprises when it sets sail again.
    it's not going to kill the attraction as many seem to be assuming/fearing. Disney knows what it's doing, they know there will be outrage if the attraction is no longer viewed as being Walt's PotC.

    I got mine Wednesday, so no clue when they were sent out, could have been sent out Wednesday morning even, since mail sometimes moves that fast in OC, but likely sent over the weekend or Tuesday.

    Re: 10 Days Left 'till Pirates Goes Hollywood

    i'm bummed. i'm not trying to be a sour lemon, but this is going to turn into a chicken and egg situation. we know that the egg came before the chicken in this case. however...as years pass...the enigma will arise again...the chicken or the egg...anyway. i'm going to the park on the 5th for my mom's b-day as well as to see pirates one last time the way that it is. i am looking forward to see the changes, but it's still bittersweet.
