    Sad Re: POTC Ride Down For Refurb #2 - Possibly Feb-May 2007?

    The really sad thing is that Disney doesn't care what we think. They are in business to make money and draw large crowds. If they put Will and Elizabeth in the ride they might be able to make more money. We all know that this is not true, but it's not up to us!

    Of course they are in business to make money. That is what being in business means. However, it does not follow they do not care what we think. Any successful business will care a great deal about what customers think.

    I've said it once, I'll say it again....I want Pintel and Regetti in there instead of Will and Elizabeth. I'd love to see Regetti crouched over saying, "Me eye! Me eye!!!!" while his eye rolls every which way.

    That would actually be pretty hilarious! I would welcome it.

    I'd like to see some of the older AAs get replaced. Keep the characters the same, but it's bizarre to see these brand new Jack Sparrows moving like you and I, then Jolty McJoltington next to him.

    If they add Bloom we might get the dueling pirates form the Paris version. They could get rid of the rotating pirtates that are right in front of yo and add the Pirates there...

    I want the Dueling Pirates!

    Re: POTC Ride Down For Refurb #2 - Possibly Feb-May 2007?

    Unless they're actually going to make the Wicked Wench into the Black Pearl, this rehab just will not work due to some severe continuity issues storyline wise. The Wicked Wench was what the Pearl was called before it was sank by the East India Company in an attempt to get rid of Jack in response to him freeing some slaves he was supposed to transport to the Caribbean from Aftrica. When Jones rose the Wench from the depths it was renamed the Pearl . So if they added in Will and Elizabeth, that would wack things out as they would only be about 10 years old to have been around when the Pearl was still the Wench. If they don't make Bruckenheimer allow them to use the Pearl, the ride's going to look a bit weak to the Pirates nerds and regular watchers should more of the Pearl's history be told in three. That or the ride will be non-canon with the movies , which is kind of a shame.

    I think the ride is perfect the way it is. The movie elements should only compliment the attraction, not take over it.

    I agree with this one completely. I'm at a total loss as to how they'll fit those to in, but Pintel and Ragetti would be pretty easy. And they are quite comic which fits as well.

    Definitely. It's like listening to a CD and suddenly switching to 8-track or scratcy LP. I think it would be great to slowly upgrade each of the AA's. Doesn't even have to be all at once, could do it in a night or two for each one so just leave the ride up and slowly bring in the new AA's.

    Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter

    why do they need to do this again???? I mean the people that go to DLR once a year maybe like that ride... and say they go during spring/summer, they are never going to get to ride it if they keep doing this! I say leave the ride alone, It is fine as it is and fine as it once was.

    I think that the movie elements already take over the attraction.
