To Parrot Ebola, Whence He Sent This Unto Me

“What the freakity hell?!”

Pirates of the Carribean Disneyland Ride Revamp
The classic ride gets a film-related update.
*A congregation of pirates talks about “Captain Jack Sparrow” while a likeness of the Johnny Depp character crouches behind a barrel nearby.
*In another stretch, the dreaded Sparrow pokes his bearded head out of a barrel.
*As the ride moves to the section where the ship battle is taking place, the boat goes through a waterfall (the illusion is made by fog) bearing the likeness of the CG Davy Jones. He delivers a message of dread that concludes just as the boat passes through the faux falls.
*At the end of the ride, as the boat begins its climb to the end, Johnny Depp’s Sparrow sits in a room full of booty singing his pirate song.
*A likeness of the Captain Jack from the movie has been added to the Rogue’s Gallery.

  1. Hey, it’s not as bad as a few years back when some uppity broad in Disney management made them change the part where the fat chick is chasing the guy. Apparently, it offended her feminist sensibilities. (BTW, they changed that part but kept the bride auction.)

  2. Not the fat chick??!!! Next thing they’ll take out the swiggin’ from rum bottles. Damn. That darn thing has ALWAYS been my favorite ride ~ F-A-V-O-R-I-T-E.

    Why not just go all the way and imitate Futurama?
    Ohhhh, we’re whalers on the moon
    And we carry a harpoon
    But there ain’t no whales
    So we tell tall tales
    And sing our whaling tune!

    There’s a reason why I don’t go to Disneyland any more, even though I live ten minutes from the place. THe one that put it over the tope for me was when the Swiss Family Robinson Tree House became the Tarzan Tree House.
    Now this stuff with the Pirates… I mean I like the movies, but c’mon.
    Oh and ‘Fly, I hear that was Plan B on revamping Space Mountain.

  5. Envy me, Sis. I went on PotC the year it opened.

  6. Oh, I do, I DO!! Positively puce with envy.
    I LOVE that ride.

    Heheh, KG. I’ve never been, for all I know the whole ride is played to “Night on Disco Mountain.”

    Older sister and her icky boyfriend just came back from there and loved the facelift they gave the ride. But she has a thing for pirates whcih may explain the boyfriend who looks like he’s been at sea for a while.
