    Not exactly. Watch the Disney short or read the book by Kenneth Grahame, 'The Wind In The Willows' if you don't understand what's happening.

        Well if you think about it, Pirates of the Caribbean is about getting drunk, defacing city propety, stealing, and rape...

            Alice in Wonderland is also a recreation of an acid/PCP experience.

                  Well it used to be that the pirates were chasing the wenches.

                          Ok.

                          Are Pirates and Haunted Mansion kids rides?

                            I think he was referring to the Wind in the Willows not being Disney originally before the Ichabod and Mr. Toad combine thing. However, I echo the sentiment of the OP. The first time I rode this attraction I was pretty young (around ten i wanna say) and I very much thought that this was kind of racy for my age. Or does racy only refer to things being sexualized? Either way.

                            As another poster rightly noted Pirates and Haunted Mansion are suitable for kids as well, and I see that argument. However there is something more personal about actually being taken to hell in my opinion. Also the fact that it's located in Little Tyke Central (Fantasyland) makes it more prone to criticism for it's theme. All this being as it is, I'm darn glad we still have Toad Hall, and it's one of my favorite Fantasyland attractions.
                            In the beginning the Universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.

                              IMO I think that the people that are questioning if anything is "not for" kids as far as DLR goes is underestimating a child's comprehension level. Nursery Rhymes and Faerie Tales are as horrible and grotesque as they are beautiful and magical. The Queen in Snow White demanding the poor girls heart from the Huntsman, the naughty little boys acting like @sses and therefore turned into literal @sses and crying out for their Mommies. The original purpose of these stories were to teach children life lessons. In this day and age they are used as entertainment but they still retain (if done right) the original meanings.
