Disney made it official today. The Disneyland and Disney World Pirates of the Caribbean attractions will be undergoing a 3-4 month makeover to work in character and plot elements from the movie series that took its inspiration from the original attraction.
"Successfully adding the popular characters from the ‘Pirates of the
Caribbean’ films with the mythology of our classic attraction is an example of
Disney synergy and Walt Disney Imagineering at its finest," said Jay Rasulo,
chairman of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts. "These additions will result in an
exciting new chapter for the attraction and an unforgettable experience for
our guests, giving them another reason to come and be a part of our continuing
50th anniversary celebration."
Okay. So it’s a little odd, changing an attraction with characters from a movie that was based on the original attraction. But I’ve been told not to worry by people I trust. So I’m not worrying. Really. I’m not.
Johhny Depp is going to have a permanent home at Disneyland and that’s got to be good, right?
