Just returned from WDW vacation. While there was telling cast member i preferred DL POTC ride as it was longer and had better experience. Cast member proceeded to tell me that POTC foundation was sinking and ride was about to begin year long refurb and total rebuild. Cast member had no reason to lie as she gave info without asking for it. Glad i had chance to experience and if true hope they make it longer like at DL. Pirates is my fav and would have not been so happy if closed especially if so long. Also she said it was coming soon and could take between 10 - 12 months...seems long for Disney construction.
