    The change has been rumored as coming for many months - this is the confirmation that change is actually coming. If it's not mermaids, sure you can say the title needs some work.. but I'll even put a bet in escrow if you want

    It's confirmation that a change is coming, yes. Mermaids however were not confirmed. Have they been rumored? Yes. Will it most likely be mermaids? Yes. Have they been confirmed? No.

    Just because the popular theory is out there, it does not mean that it will come to fruition. A year ago they were saying the iPhone 5 was coming out, but the announcement from Apple was only the 4S.

    While it will probably be mermaids, I'll wait until it is acutally confirmed.

    An overnight install of a new animatronic is not really a historical norm for WDI.

    I've heard that they've actually been testing it out in the attraction after hours for quite some time now. Some say that they seen black cloth near where the talking skull was.

    I'm looking forward to it. The only thing I'm concerned about is hoping it doesn't interfere with other show scenes.

    It's not a 'popular theory' - it's LEAKED INFORMATION. Big difference.

    Re: Mermaids coming to POTC - finally confirmed by Disney Blog

    I have not seen any concept art but when I read this blog post I immediately thought "mermaids".

    Will I like it? It might be an entertaining distraction for awhile but I almost think Pirates should do what Haunted Mansion does... have the movie version during the summer and then back to normal the rest of the year (for Disneyland).

    The blog post says MK though without mention of Disneyland. Perhaps this is a "wait and see how audiences react".

    Leaked by whom? If its not from an official source, then to me it is still nothing more than popular theory.

    Leaked by posters with long long histories of insider information that is not publicly known.

    There is a world outside of Micechat when it comes to Disney... especially WDW.

There is no Imagineering coffee table book which will give us the Auctioneer's name and history, that is left for us, but is not of concern for the morality tale that is at the heart of Pirates of the Caribbean.
    This is an excellent way of summing it up. Marc Davis said, "We really don't have a story, with a beginning, an end, or a plot. It's more a series of experiences building up to a climax. I call them experience rides." I think what HM and PotC (at least the original versions) do perfectly is put you in an experience with a rough narrative framework that allows you to fill in the gaps and really make yourself a part of the story. (i.e.: Interactivity!) The attractions don't and aren't supposed to have rigid plots that are spelled out for you along the way (i.e.: just about every attraction that Eisner oversaw) but there is a basic narrative flow that is suggested by the progression of scenes and allows us to make sense of the attraction. I wish WDI still did that. They don't trust/respect the audience enough anymore and feel like they have to spoon-feed us, which is unfortunate.

    Totally agree with both of these.
    I knew if this business was ever to get anywhere, if this business was ever to grow, it could never do it by having to answer to someone unsympathetic to its possibilities, by having to answer to someone with only one thought or interest, namely profits. For my idea of how to make profits has differed greatly from those who generally control businesses such as ours. I have blind faith in the policy that quality, tempered with good judgment and showmanship, will win against all odds.

    However, these are still sources that can't be verified. If it is not from a verifiable source, how can we call this confirmed? Like our great 40th president said, "trust, but verify."

    There's no confirmation that it will be mermaids. They did confirm that there will be changes to the attraction of some type.

    Exactly.
