announced earlier today that some minor new additions will soon be introduced inside the Pirates of the Caribbean ride at the Magic Kingdom Park. Here's the article from the blog:
Ahoy! Changes Are Afoot at Pirates of the Caribbean at Magic Kingdom
In honor of International Talk Like a Pirate Day, I’m excited to have a bit of news to share on one of my all-time favorite attractions, Pirates of the Caribbean here at Magic Kingdom Park.
This classic Disney attraction, which inspired a four-part film franchise, has undergone a few changes in recent years due to the success of these movies. First, Captain Jack Sparrow made his debut at the attraction, then Captain Barbossa (pictured above) appeared aboard a pirate ship. More recently, the ghostly apparitions of knaves Davy Jones and Blackbeard have materialized.
Our friends at Walt Disney Imagineering dropped us a line today to let us know that something from the most recent film, “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides,” is about to be added to the attraction here at Walt Disney World Resort. Can you guess what it is? Updates to the attraction will be made overnight, so Pirates of the Caribbean will remain open to guests during park hours.
Keep a weather eye on the Disney Parks Blog for more details!
Many rumors point to the possibility of having new mermaids Audio-Animatronics figures installed, while others say that there will just be a new projection. In any circumstance, it will definitely be something minor, as these additions will be introduced overnight. That is really a limited amount of time, but we trust WDI*.
