    It depends on how permanent they are. Right now, it does seem like overkill, but the movies will fade eventually and then we'll see what happens.

    While I do think there is a place for them, I also believe DL is on the verge of going overboard.

    Re: More Pirates? good or bad

    Its bad IMO and deefinitely too much of a good thing. I was fine with the show in NOS, but the fact that they are everywhere (shops, TSI, etc) its too much especially because it will die down. I LOVE POTC, and I actually love pirates, its a fun concept, but they are definitely not why I love DL and its been overedone at this point.

    Re: More Pirates? good or bad

    Probably both. Good for the bottom line and short-term attendance figures. Bad (in my humble opinion) for the future of the 'Theme Park', if this product-promotion at the expense of theme continues unchecked. But I am sure all are weary of my tirades against the pirate invasion phenomenon!
    I leave the floor to others (probably my betters...).

    It is definately overkill, although I would love to see all the Sky Pirates from TaleSpin, Don Carnage rules.

    Re: More Pirates? good or bad

    I do think it is rather extreme that they have pirate merchandise in pretty every store, regardless of the land. Right now it is on the verge of overkill for me.

    TSI, I have to admit, is pretty good. I really enjoyed finally seeing so much activity on the Island. But I hope they stop with adding anything POTC movie related to the ride ... I love the movies ... but don't really care to see Will & Elizabeth AA's there.

    Re: More Pirates? good or bad

    I love pirates. I am a huge pirate fan.....have been since I was a little kid (which was a long time ago). However, I think DL has gone way overboard with the whole thing. I don't think that all the pirate stuff DL has will be able to hold it's own.....I think it's all a passing fad. For a while I was afraid that Disney was going to rename the park to Pirateland. Scary scary!
