    Wink Pirates of the Carribean : Depp Man's Chest

    The beloved, Classic attraction Pirates of the Caribbean was closed on March 6th. The doors closed forever on an attraction that for 39 years has charmed and entertained thousands, if not Millions of would be buccaneers with it's swashbuckling tale of Pirates and Wenches sacking a small caribbean port for it's cursed treasure. On June 26th the doors will reopen and boats will set sail again but this time new tales are to be told. More pointedly, the tales featured in the soon to be mega hit "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest" starring Johnny Depp will be featured.

    Despite the plaintiff cries of die hard fans who are wary of the changes Disney eagerly pounced on the chance to cash in on what is to be a guaranteed hit by featuring a new storyline and new animatronic figures from the movie. Will this be a bad thing? I don't think so. Disney knows it's rich heritage of attractions and would be loathe to alter the classic elements of such a landmark attraction. Yes, Johnny Depp animatronics will be featured in the refurb and will play key roles in the new storyline. But if Disney were REALLY smart they would also capitalize on the popularity of Johnny Depp's other roles and infuse the into the already existing POTC storyline. For instance...



    Willy Wonka should greet every new
    adventurer and give out Gobbstoppers.


    Benny should warn of rough waters ahead.


    A sexy Depp figure for the ladies within arms reach.


    Edward Scissorhands would make an excellent auction piece.


    Lastly, a young '21 jumpstreet' Depp should be helping the pirates to get out of the jail cell.

    Though Disney intends to stick to the storyline of the new POTC movies, featuring Johnny Depp figures found ONLY in the POTC movies, I believe that the ride will still hold it's charm and classic legacy. The only difference is that now the ride will have a storyline that riders will actually understand.


    I for one will miss the former state of the attraction, but in all honesty what closed on March 6th was vastly different from the attraction I grew up with. Over time the ride has gone through countless changes, most of them good, some bad, but the ride has remained. The real tragedy for Disney park fans would have been for the ride to close for good. Thank goodness POTC still holds it's own and has survived as one of the parks most popular rides. Yes the new changes will probably bug the crap out of me, but the ride will now speak to a new generation of riders and this will ensure it's survival for years to come.

    Like sands through the hourglass, so are the Days of Our MiceChat.

    If this keeps up, I think the Johnny as Wonka AA will switch to Red Vines instead of Gobstoppers whenever a boat of MiceChatters passes by.

    I still vote for naked Jack Sparrow. He can hand me a red vine anytime.

    I think Johnny has a great agent. Where is Orlando's agent? How come he is not going to be an AA?

    They're actually placing a miniature one inside the nearest popcorn cart, turning the crank. Reportedly, he'll be named Will Popcorn Turner.
