  • Walt Disney's POTC

    Seeing as POTC was the last attraction over seen by Walt, why not (in honor of him) name the ride Walt Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean? It would just be a good honor to him. Hey, if they did at Walt Disney's at the front it wouldn't need to be like the movie! But of course it's already been done. Anyway,

    Your thoughts???
    Still wishing for that AP....:blush:

    Walt has his name in enough places around the parks, methinks, to have been suitably tributed.

      He didn't want his name plastered on stuff... there was turmoil over Roy even naming WDW after him.

        Next they'll be wanting to name the whole place after him lol
        As nice as the other parks are, we must always remember that it all began at Disneyland. Disneyland should be the crown jewel in the Disney crown.

          DISNEYland?


          That would be the same thing as having a PEEKland (peek is my last name). I dont think you could plaster your name any larger than naming the park after yourself.

            I'd prefer Marc Davis' Pirates of the Caribbean

              Remember.. Disney was the name of the COMPANY too.. He didn't name it 'Walt Disney Land' - nor was WDW to be named that either. That was done by Roy Disney.

                Disney is the brand name. Yes, it's also his last name, but the two issues are slightly different.

                "Disney" = family name = family fun

                "Walt Disney" = 1 man

                Walt was very adamant about keeping things modest in reference to himself (at least in terms of the park). You can bet that we'd never have the Partners Statue in Disneyland if Walt were still alive. He would have thrown a fit.

                Pirates of the Caribbean might have been the last attraction he truly worked on, but the brand name "Disney" in general reflects the greatness of what he brought to the world. I think that's good enough for Walt, and I don't think he'd want his name plastered on the attraction.

                  While Marc Davis did have a great influence on Pirates, there are plenty of other Imagineers who also made significant contributions to the attraction, e.g., Claude Coats, Blaine Gibson, Wathel Rogers, X Atencio, Alice Davis, etc.

                  In the case of Pirates, I don't think you could justify singling out Marc Davis. In fact, one of the the reasons why I think Pirates is so great is because of the intense collaboration between all the Imagineers. If you are looking to put Marc Davis' name above an attraction, Country Bears or America Sings would be more appropriate.

                  "JESUS!!! That's Cold!" -- Walt Disney's final words.

                  "You hear people talk about, 'I don't think Walt would like this,' or 'I don't think Walt would like that.' You have no idea what Walt would want! No clue whatsoever! Because the people that worked with him day in and day out didn't know what Walt wanted. Walt didn't know what he wanted 'til he wanted it."
                  -- Randy Thornton, Walt Disney Records
