      Re: Questions on the changed pirate ride

      Okay, let me see if I can get most of it. Here are the physical changes I can remember at the moment. There are 3 separate Capt Jack's in the ride. One near where the guy is getting dunked in the well, one in the barrel behind the guy with the pigs (who is also holding "the treasure map") and one at the end where the pirates used to be trying to get the load of treasure up the hill. The Capt on the ship in the battle scene has been changed to Barbosa. The splashes from the cannon balls hitting the water were all fixed and there have been larger splashes added. There is a cool fog screen that Davy Jones is projected onto. Well thats all I can remember at the moment.

      The entire story line has been changed however, but not everyone can actual tell what the story is supposed to be now. When you get to the fog screen (which is just before the battle scene) he has different sayings for you one is after you hear "Dead Men Tell No Tells" he comes up and says "Ahh but they do tell tells says I", and there are others he says. When you enter the battle scene Barbosa is yelling for them to give up Jack Sparrow, so now the reason the ship (which they wanted to change to the Black Pearl but could'nt get the rights) is there attacking is because they want Capt Jack. Then where the guy is getting dunked the capt is trying to get him to tell him where Capt Jack is as well and you can see Capt Jack peeking around the corner. The guy with the pig is saying how he would like to see the look on Capt Jack Sparrow's face if he knew that that guy had the map and you see Capt Jack's head coming out of the barrel behind him and looking at the map. At the end you see Capt Jack sitting in a throne surronded by the treasure drinking and happy where he has several sayings followed by "Drink up me hearty's yo ho!'

      Wether the changes are good or not is a matter of opinion. Alot of Disneyland purist/traditionalist do not like it because the story has changed and people are now calling it the Jack Sparrow or Johnny Depp ride and worse yet some people actually think that the ride came after the movie!! Alot of the younger people love the changes. Its all a matter of opinion.

      I know I missed some stuff so if anyone else can help that would be great!

          DisneyGeek75's description is pretty good. I can't tell you how many times I've ridden the attraction since the year it opened. Frankly, I never knew there was any story line to it. It just seemed like a fun excursion through the world of pirates. Now there is a bit of a story line.

          IMHO, the enhancements didn't hurt the ride one bit. It's still Pirates Of The Caribbean... just with a few new things added. The new cannon ball splashes are really fun. They used to just go "bloop." Now, if you're lucky (or unlucky, depending on your attitude) you may actually get wet!

          I think you'll love it.

              The upgrade is great: lots of fun. The new AA figures of Jack Sparrow are top of the line.
              My only criticism is that the AA figure of Barbossa looks NOTHING like Geoffrey Rush does in the films. Can't figure out how they could bobble that so badly.

                  Very true! They got Jack perfect and yet Barbossa gets jacked up! Very strange and makes you wonder how the Swan and Turner are gonna turn out after the next refurb.

                      I hear they're using Danny DeVito and Rhea Pearlman as models.

                        So is the Story Line about Jack Sparrow and pirates getting the treasure first?

                            It is a matter of opinion. DH now calls it the Capt Jack Sparrow ride, yet i think it is just the same old pirate ride with a few additions. He thinks it is lame (tho' he does love the movies), and I love seeing Capt. Jack. (But then again Johnny Depp makes me weak in the knees so that may have something to do with it. )

                                Exactly! I don't think the AA Barbosa looked like the one from the film either. Nothing like him.

                                  it must have something to do with the "talking" AA's..as the last jack sparrow AA doestn' looks as asthetically good as the two that dont' have moving mouths, imho

                                    For a fact: I found out on Wikipedia that the Black Pearl was the Wicked Wench before the movies. Which is odd since both ships don't resemble each other.

                                      I would like to know where Wikipedia got that information. During the refurb it was known that Disney wanted to rename the ship on the ride to the Black Pearl and of course paint it and stuff. Since this part of the story was not told in either movie was it something that Disney put out after they could not get the rights to use the Black Pearl or was it part of the story from the beginning and for some strange reason was not brought to viewers attention in either film?

                                        I also noticed they took out most of the firefly's in the after you leave load. Was this done before the refurb?
