    Pirates with new effects

    I read in another forum this

    "New Projectors have been added on Pirates of the Caribbean in Disneyland. They replace Davy Jones and the Fort Battle scene. They are also brighter."

    is this true??

    So far as i know and have seen, nothing has been "replaced." I know they tweaked the last Jack Sparrow (Captain!) animatronic with a new face, but that was a while ago.

    I can confirm a new projector for the battle-scene. It looks clearer than it ever did before. However, Davy is still dull and fuzzy.

    Speaking of the Davy Jones effect, they need to fix the mist screen so it goes all the way to the water. I went on POTC last night and the screen only went half way to where its suppose to go, the kids in our boat almost had to stand in the boat just to feel the mist with their hand!

    I noticed a week or so ago that they were needing to replace the lamp in the Davy Jones projector. Hopefully they will soon.

    I thought the fighting shadows looked different. Much better in my opinion. Davy Jones may have looked a little better, but nothing worth noting.

    Re: Pirates with new effects

    Hmm.. I didn't notice anything different.. then again.. I'm not one to really notice any type of enhancements until waaay too late and it's already been discussed and beaten to the ground..

    However.. I did notice that the last time I was on POTC (last week) that the davy jones effect was kinda lost in the fact that they had so many boats passing through it so quickly that the mist didn't really have time to recover in between passing boats.. so the effect was kinda lost due to heavy boat traffic.. you get what I'm saying.. right??

    Wierd because in florida that effect works properly. The screen goes all the way down into the mist

    I was disappointed at Disneyland's Davy Jones effect. After seeing Walt Disney World's version, I noticed that ours is crappy and theres way too much breeze there.
