    Pirates Refurb (noooo!!!!)

    we're going to WDW for the first time ever, 10 days! and what do we hear? Pirates will be closed up until our last day (June 19th)

    Does anyone know the status of this refurb? Will it possibly be open sooner? Because if it's not....we'll be spending our entire last day riding it as much as possible to make up for the rest of the trip.

    Supposedly the refurbishment is to take care of some maintenance stuff that wasn't addressed in the major refurbishment. If that really is the case then I doubt that it would open before the stated date.

    Look on the bright side, assuming that it re-opens when it's supposed to, you'll get Pirates at its very freshest on your last day.

    People need to stop complaining about refurbs. They have to happen otherwise Disney World won't be a place worth visiting.

    Why would you want to go on a broken down junky ride? I'd rather let them close it and make it better for my next trip. Theres plenty else to do in the parks.

    If you've ridden any of the other versions of PotC then you are missing very little.

    If it's open for one of your days, be happy.

    They're working on the water pumps. As far as I understand it, that's it.

    It's unfortunate that you might miss Pirates during your stay, but it's true that the DL version is clearly superior. However, the good news is that WDW currently has the best version of Haunted Mansion!

    We should be glad for regular refurbs. Besides, if you get to ride on the last day, then you're not really missing out. Plus, Pirates at MK isn't quite in the same league as the versions in the other parks.

    There's a site called MousePlanet that has weekly updates on the resorts, with refurbishment schedules. The only ride they list as being closed in November is Primeval Whirl -- refurb scheduled from sept to Nov. 15.

    You can also look it up on the WDW website. They list all refurbs and closures [to attractions] as they become public.

    Karla, if you look at the WDW site and go to the calender, click on the date of whatever day you're going to be there, it will show the hours, shows, and list the refurbs. Hope that helps
