  • Pirates in Tokyo

    So with Pirates going down for a long refurbishment can anyone confirm yet if Capn Jack Sparrow is heading to the Tokyo version too.also talking of Pirates what do you think the chances are if DLR Pirates Lair at Tom Sawyer Island is a hit it could be reused in Tokyo.Especially seeing that if many young American's have no idea of the story of Tom Sawyer how are the Japanese supposed too either!

    Would not surprise me. TDL copies everything they do at DL, so we'll have to wait and see.

      Take this with a grain of salt but Deep Disney has some pics up of the attraction opening back up from its recent refurbishment.And it shows pics of the park selling Pirate movie related merchadise with images of Jack Sparrow which I don't think we've seen before.Could it be a sign of things to come when the ride closes again later this May summer...

        Wow, Pirates has a sponsor in Tokyo. Everything seems to. Must be quite lucrative for the OLC...

          I think the SPONSORED BY CORPORATE AMERICA signs were always tacky.

          I am glad Disneyland in CA is having a hard time keeping them, they took away from the show.

            And people say attractions at Tokyo Disneyland are so highly maintained and immaculate because OLC 'cares so much about the Disney show'. I'm not disputing that they don't, but y'know... I'm sure the sponsors help. A lot.

            I ain't sayin' nothin', but how many attractions at Walt Disney World have corporate sponsors compared to Tokyo Disney?

              Well, then, if that is the case, wouldn't it be better if more attractions at the other Disney parks got sponsors. "Every little helps" (no, this isn't a Tesco ad).

                  Disney also gets to make sure they do things the "Disney way". And WDI has an exclusive contract.

                    I'm not disputing that. Disney does have most of the creative control, but Disney doesn't pay anything at all towards Tokyo Disneyland. The OLC funds everything, so naturally (and fairly) they get 99% of the credit for all the great stuff at Tokyo Disney, because without fresh yen, it wouldn't exist. But what I'm trying to get to is that, the OLC isn't one big bottomless pit of cash. The immaculate standard of attractions and surroundings in the resort is greatly helped by cash from sponsors.

                      I'm not saying credit Disney. But as Disney is cutting budgets in the parks owned by them, I wouldn't be surprised if they were telling the OLC to spend more. It's a reason to be upset really.

                        I agree with what your saying, totally.

                        But I don't even know what we're talking about here

                        My first post in this thread was questioning why people credit the OLC so much with maintaining the resort so well out of their own pocket when nearly every single attraction has a sponsor to fund it, whereas the attractions that all get bashed at Disney-owned attractions aren't so well maintained. That isn't excusing Disney's behaviour of course, but OLC have a lot of help financially.

                        You know, I might not post in this thread again cos its making my head hurt simply because I don't know why I'm writing what I'm writing.

                        I might have a lie down.

                            It is through the work of the OLC that the attractions have sponsors. A lot of bridges were burned by Disney in recent years.

                              Maybe you need to visit TDR and find out what we are talking about.

                              My first post in this thread was questioning why people credit the OLC so much with maintaining the resort so well out of their own pocket when nearly every single attraction has a sponsor to fund it, whereas the attractions that all get bashed at Disney-owned attractions aren't so well maintained.

                              So does Disney at the other resorts. These companies only pay a fee to have their names and products splattered on any particualr attraction or restaurant. I highly doubt these companies are supplying money on a recurrent basis to help with the upkeep and maintenance of those facilities. If that was the case, then the same level of quality found at TDR, would also be found at various WDW locations.. and that simply isn't the case.

                              You know, I might not post in this thread again cos its making my head hurt simply because I don't know why I'm writing what I'm writing.

                              That would be too bad because I always welcome the chance to educate you.
