    yoyoflamingo went on it today and told me that the audio was definitely off! The Pirate at the beginning wasn't talking and it was also off-sync (the Pirates and mule would speak and then their mouths would move.).

    So with that being said... is it even worth having the attraction open with such bad show? What do you all think?

    Maybe they are doing this on purpose....so once it is finally finished and there is not much of a change....they will think there was...and people will love it

    Not enough people go that often. And if they did they would notice the drop in show.

    Re: POTC opens today!

    Because they have to?

    Pirates has a huge capacity, and even then, MK will be closing as i reaches park capacity over the next two weeks.

    I'm sure they didn't purposely leave audio out of synch, it jsut means the system is somehow broken. Did the person who saw this tell a CM?

    Things break all the time in all rides and show, in most rides the CMs cant see it though unless they're told and often it's quickly fixed. One buggy pirate scene means they just need to reboot one of the many parts of the show.

    I don't think it was directly a result of their rehab efforts. Holes.. I dunno, I'd have to see them to make a judgement. They didn't stand out in any photos or videos i've seen thus far. I doubt they're major.

    I would hate to see pirates "half" opened in this state. I'm glad they are not doing this in CA where I am.

    with that said... picts?

    They wouldn't do it at DL. They can get away with it because WDW attracts a less discerning tourist crowd. Most people won't know any better.

    But it's sad that Disney would do that. And if capacity is such an issue maybe they shouldn't have closed Timekeeper. Or replaced 20,000 Leagues with a playground. Or taken ALL the watercraft off the RoA.

    Simply put, capacity is a BS excuse for putting a not-show-quality attraction on display. Plain and simple.

    I would expect no less from Phil Holmes and Co.

    Re: POTC opens today!

    I haven't heard a single good reason it's not "show quality."

    We have a scene malfunction, which happens all the time in all attractions, and supposed holes that no one seems to be able to document, but there are videos of the ride showing no such holes.

    The holes are part of the show and are on purpose. Smoke will be coming out of the holes, to show that a cannon ball has just crashed through. The ride is just as presentable as it was before the rehab.

    Figured as much - how can people expect such atrocities so willingly?

    Re: POTC opens today!

    The atrocities people are speaking of... what are you referring to? The current condition of the attraction? Or the enhancements still yet to be installed?

    Moreso the idea that the ride would re-open looking like crap and half put together. People really think Disney would do that. It's kinda insulting.

    The ride by no means looks like crap. Sure a few effects here and there aren't working, but they wern't working prior to the rehab either. Nah, it's not crap. Still needs to finish the rehab badly, but crap? Nope.

    So what is the current excuse for the work taking forever on the riverboat? I've heard everything from a full rebuild to the contractor they hired not doing the work to aliens having kidnapped the boat (you get the hint). What is the reasoning now?
    The river lacks without movement.

    I have to agree. I mean it is wicked odd reopening it in the middle of a rehab, but if it is up to snuff (nothing has yet to say it isn't) then I guess it's ok...though still odd...
