Is there anything new in Pirates of the Carribean since the recent refurbishment? I need to cut some attractions out of my TP for MK and this was never a favorite of my family’s.
No. We did it in April (was that after the refurb?) and I remember thinking that Johnny Depp showed up a time or two more than I remembered (mostly peeking around corners and such), but really, essentials are exactly he same as always.
There are some small details that showed up in the last refurb I believe (although it’s possible they pre-date the last refurb) - things like a Mermaid skeleton now being in the early scene with the purple lit skeleton sitting against the wall that weren’t there before. Pretty minor detail stuff though & not big picture changes…
I’ve heard the same, that it’s just minor details. We do POTC every trip and I didn’t notice what the difference was from one year to the next!
I’ve also heard on one of the podcasts that you tend to get splashed a bit more than you used to before the refurb.
I’m sorry - but you need to leave the boards now!! Pirates is a classic that must be ridden or your trip doesn’t count!!!
In all actuality - there hasn’t been a significant enough of a change in YEARS. It is always 99% the same. Although we love it - I can understand others that don’t. I love C of Progress - however my family won’t do it so I forgo it. We did Astro orbiters instead - which I didn’t think was worth even the small wait. Was a bit cool as we did it at night - but I didn’t think it was worth my time.
We all have them.
‘Hanging my head in shame’…I don’t like pirates of the Carribean either! I think it’s a bit boring
I’m surprised there is no height requirement for Pirates of the Carribean. Because there is no height requirement I assumed it would be a tame ride, but there is a fairly large drop at the start. I took a new born baby on the ride and he almost flew out of my hands because there is no warning of the drop.
They put a photo in! Last year at thanksgiving there was no photo, this year there was
Going in March of 2018. Pirates will be closed from late Feb. to Late March. Bummer for me as I love the ride even though it is old. Can’t get the song out of my head afterwards.
