  • News Pirates Refub pushed from Jan to April

    So the Pirates refurb has been removed from the park calendar (It is still listed on the attractions map however).

    According someone on the DIS Boards, she called reservations to book Blue Bayou for when the refurb was schedueled and they said it has been pushed to April.

    So thats another one own for April!

      I wonder if the Club 33 refurbishment has anything to do with it?

        I was just able to make a reservation for Blue Bayou for February 7th. I don't think they would have let me make it if the ride was going to be closed.

          We'll guess it actually has been moved then.

          Good ode for some bad for others

            Pirates is still no longer on the refurb list along with Alice in Wonderland. Did Alice get delayed once again?

              We went on Pirates today and for some reason all the lighting was very dim.
              At first I thought there must be something wrong with my eyes, but I was not the only one who said so. Throughout the ride everything appeared dimly lit. Wonder why that was?

                I have noticed the Fantasyland rides being pretty dark in recent visits as well as Haunted Mansion. Yes, I understand the concept of dark rides, but when you have people going from sunlight to pitch darkness, or close to it, you can't see anything.

                  Thanks Dr. Fink. Well, we go on Pirates regularly. The last time was last week, and have never seen it this dark! Sometimes the fog is thicker than other times, but generally the lighting has seemed pretty consistent in the past.

                    I noticed during my last trip that the fog was ridiculously thick.

                        Went back today and the lighting on Pirates is still really dim!

                          Maybe a few of the lights went out or something. I know I come in during broad daylight, I'm usually blind until after passing through the caves.

                            Well, in some areas (like by the first skeleton) it looked like the lights were all off. In some of the other areas it looked like some or quite a few of the lights were out, or dimmed. Like I wrote before, we go on this ride very often and are pretty familiar with it, so it's not just the sunlight factor in this case. Something is definitely off with the lighting!

                              I wonder if it's a power or safety issue with the C33 refurb. I'm sure they're using all sorts of power tools and cutting things away like mad.

                              Maybe they're having to isolate certain electrical circuits & turn the power off to them so they can work on the refurb.
