    They have been gone a while. I'm willing to bet that is in part thanks to the continued abuse the face character cm's had to put up with from some park goers.

    The official reason is probably something else. Whatever the reason it would be nice if her returned, for he was popular with my husband and daughter.

      That's exactly what I heard too. However, I heard that it's also the reason they don't have Tarzan out for the guests - and they brought him back for LLF - so perhaps there's a hope that Jack will return at some point. He was out on the course for photo ops at the first Tinker Bell 5K in 2012 (the theme seemed to incorporate all pirates) but I don't know if he turned up at this year's race.

        Maybe he will again return during the Halloween Parties?

        Also Pirates 5 is going to come out in a year plus so maybe more pirate stuff will invade.

          Ladies invited him back to there hotels...to drink rum and Disney saw this as a potential lawsuit or trouble one day so he only comes out for special events
          Happy Halloween!!!

            I've heard Jack, Tarzan and Esmaralda all had issues with frisky guests so that's why they aren't out in the parks anymore.

              I also heard that. I wonder what it's going to be like when they add Thor to the mix

                    This is just something I heard through the grapevine... but his absence is due to a number of parents complaining that the character was implied of being "intoxicated" (like he does in the movie). I don't know if this is true, but it's one of the reasons I've heard why he is not doing meet and greets anymore.

                        I don't think any of these suggestions are true either. Mostly because they still have Jack Sparrow as a character at Disney World. They do bring him out for special occasions once in a while at Disneyland. Like the Halloween parties and such. I wonder if they will bring him out again during the Limited Time Magic Pirate's Week.

                          They used to have him all the time near the treasure pile on the island, although I would much prefer to see Tom and Huck as walk-around characters on the island.

                            I've also heard several stories of Jack being hassled and super inappropriate things being conversed. Who knows what's true, but I don't doubt that some people are so trashy that they would give a face character their number along with a lewd message. Thanks a lot ladies. I loved seeing Jack around NOS.

                              I suppose if they can't have the real thing.. an impersonator will do.

                              "No.. leave the costume on, love.."

                              Me: "Yes. It happened after a recent trip to Neverland."
                              Peter Pan: "Well, you can dunk your head in the pond behind us, if you want."
