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

    Rode MK's PotC tonight. Noticed three things...


    1. All lighting between the Blackbeard projection and the beach with crabs/skeletons was totally off and it was completely dark in that area. Absolutely 0 lighting after the Blackbeard projection until the beach scene. Seems logical to believe that that may be in an effort to hide things in that area that are not currently show worthy.
    2. There was a black scrim (opaque with current lighting) behind the beach scene, which would match the concept art that flynnibus shared and may be the "black cloth" that DisneyTwins mentioned.
    3. Probably unrelated to the mermaids rumor or either of the above, but there was a TON of fog in the scene where the Wicked Wench is firing on the Spanish fort - much more than I ever remember, and so much so that it made it difficult to see the Barbossa AA.
    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.

    Has anyone ridden it to see what the new addition is...?
    Fear of the unknown.

    They are afraid of new ideas.

    They are loaded with prejudices, not based upon any reality, but based onÖ if something is new, I reject it immediately because itís frightening to me. What they do instead is just stay with the familiar.
    You know, to me, the most beautiful things in all the universe, are the most mysterious.

    The suspense is klling me!

    Maybe it will just be an audio change... ? The sound of mermaids singing?

    rumors are they still are working on the effects and are not satisfied yet. So it's still a 'wait and see' it appears

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

    i like how in Pirates you have evil ruthless mermaids and over in Fantasyland you have Ariel the friendly kind caring mermaid. Will Ariel eventually turn into the ruthless mermaid as seen in pirates?!? I would hope so in her later years! Maybe that's why Urusla was always capturing mermaids and making deals with them and then turning them into those ugly creatures, to protect the world. I mean she did want intense power but who doesn't?

    The rumors are now saying that it will be projections of mermaids swimming in the cave area.

    Well maybe now you will start to trust sources that are legit... But just can't speak on behalf of the company...

    The mermaid effect is live in the mk today

    I just got off and there be mermaids in these waters. There are mermaid swimming in the water effects on both sides of the boat. The Jolly Sailor Bold song plays in the cave and there is the mermaid skeleton in the beach. Overall I really like it.

    Can you actually SEE the details of the mermiads? Like their faces, tails, hair, etc. Or is it just shadows?

    Basically there are two intersecting circles with tons of bubbles, people in the boat were comparing them to hot tubs . At these bubbling spots there will be a light under the water that moves from one side of the circles to the other. That light is a semi visible swimming mermaid projection. Is the effect amazing? No, you can't get a good look at them but you do get there is something in the water. I with that they would explain the dangers of mermaids so if you haven't seen the mermaids you get a sense of what is going on.
