    Pirates of the Caribbean 40th Anniversary Next Year

    As I was riding PotC today, I noticed that the plaque and fountain in the queue celebrates the 30th anniversary of this fantastic ride. Not only will next year bring the release of another movie in the trilogy, but will be the 40th Anniversary of the opening of the ride itself.

    How should Disneyland recognize this major anniversary? Should there be another plaque? If so, where and what sort? What else might be done?

    I was considering this myself a few days ago. It's ironic that it got a major refurb the year before it's 40th. We can be sure of one thing though...more pirates merch!

    40th anniversary + 3rd movie + Orlando Bloom/Keira Knightley AAs = a lot more pirates merchandise! There is going to be a lot of things happen at the parks starting March 07.

    Any bets that the rest of the old "creaking" pirates will be refurbished and/or replaced with better. Upgrading the rest of the ride to match the Jack Sparro cariters.
    Let the magic continue.

    Maybe they can rehab the ride again. Get all these folks doing commentary on the boats to try to figure out what's new and what's not every year!
    Warning: Portions of this attraction are intense and may not be appropriate for younger children.

    The attraction was not down for 3+ months just to install new AA's and effects...

    Knowing Disney, they'll threaten to put the whole ride in the "Disney vault" if you don't come see it for the 40th.

    I think it's very possible the ride may go down for another rehab next year. I'd like to see the older AA's get the modern treatment, keep the faces and personalities unchanged, but update them to reflect the incredible realism of Jack Sparrow.

    My goodness, the movements are so fluid on these new AA's, they move ever so slightly and then suddenly they move quickly. I think Lucky the Dinosaur kind of gave us a glimpse into just how shockingly realistic animatronics are today. That little dino was so lovable, he was real as far as I was concerned...same thing with Push, although he's not as technologically advanced. It's just that Disney knows how to add life to even the most mundane things, like trashcans, lol.

    It would be if they decided to outfit the older AA's with the Depp-era ones.
