    As you can tell by my username, POTC has always been our family favorite. We are the ones that scoff at amateurs who only know the 'yo ho' line of our classic anthem. After many years of sons and grandsons we were blessed with a feisty, sassy, fun loving redheaded girl. Our daughter grew up leading boats of both loved ones and strangers in the "we wants..." chants. She left home and headed to Florida right after graduation and helped pay her way through college as a part time CM. As a young adult she is one of the more caring, open individuals you are likely to meet. Certainly more "evolved" than most in our family. She is passionate about gender rights, racial equality...in general, accountability for anyone who mistreats or bullies others. She hates the term snowflake. Yet her response to the change..."It was one of Walt's favorites and it's just a ride! Leave it alone." So as her spokesperson I can assure you that she will join you rebels, continue to teach the young ones in our family "We wants the redhead," insist her Dad keeps wearing the T shirt, and treasure her action figure. After all, her legacy is andreallybadeggs not andsemidisagreeablefreerangeeggs. Except maybe when we're all at Starbucks or Whole Foods. Peace y'all.

    So many times over the last few years I have groaned and moaned about social sensitivities. It's the way things are now and until we can become more informed voters and vote in officials who can correct the political correctness that plagues our country, here we stand. I'll not go any deeper than that, these waters are to be tread lightly .. otherwise ... well ... we all know .... anyway ... Merry Christmas to all !!!

    Any chance the refurb will be done "early"? Maybe a soft-opening? We'll be visiting March 11-16 and would LOVE to experience the new-and-improved PotC.

    Thanks!

    Well, I saw it. I went in with an open mind. Iím disappointed. It doesnít have the same fun feel as before; and quite frankly she comes across as annoying now. I really couldnít even understand half of what she said. No more joyous shouts of Ďwe wants the red head!í I donít think Iím alone in my opinion as everyone else in the boat just sat looking stone faced at the new imagining of a classic scene. It really doesnít make any sense now. Oh, they also took the mermaid skeleton out as well. Not sure who was offended by that one but itís gone.

    I'm surprised they didn't take the guns and swords out, leave them bananas and feathers.

    This many have been mentioned (I'll admit, I didn't read back through all the posts) but they actually got rid of the original Redhead completely and replaced her with the (much less attractive) Jane from the Tarzan scene in The Great Movie Ride. So, it seems to me we have an "epic fail" here.

    I figured they'd put an Olaf in drag

    It does seem a bit odd that they are concerned about the portrayal of a woman in a town being ransacked by pirates, but the idea that a woman murdered her husbands in the Haunted Mansion is allowed to persist? Disney is sending mixed messages.

    Yet poor Wendy is walking the plank in Peter Pan.

    I'm surprised there are no "Black Widow Bride" hatchets for sale at the gift shop, what little princess would not want one?

    .....the Haunted Mansion remains as-is ....because no one has "officially" complained yet. Just wait until someone that is just a bit too sensitive ....or just a perpetual whiner, writes Disney Corporate that the homicidal wench hits " too close to home" for who knows what reason ....and they'll probably run the Mansion with the lights on and the sound off!!

    .....I am positive this is the reason they "put clothes on" the sculpture in Spaceship Earth that used to resemble the Venus de Milo. It was an animated representation of one of the great art masterpieces in history ....and they threw a blanket on it!!
