    OK, so I am excited about the additions, but if they close it in March....then if I get down there for a few days with my kids over Spring Break the end of march, my son will be devastated to not see PoTC! This should be cool tho!
    I am in need of some Disney magic!!

    NOOOOOOOOOO! I was so hoping it wasn't true!!!! DH and DS are not going to be happy that we will be missing PotC in June! Plus BIL has never been and SIL hasn't been in 30 years! Bummer, bummer, bummer! Guess we will for sure be making that trip in October to ride it for the first time with Rich and Ann!

    Sorry guys, but I kind of like this news. Of course, i would prefer if they held off on closing it until June so that I could have my fun for the rest of the semester first, but then they would be working through the busy summer season and during the time the movie is released. So i can see why they're going it in march. I still have time for a few more visits between now and then, so I can ride it a handful more times before it goes under the knife. And it sounds like it will come out pretty cool. I'm usually a bit of a Disney purist in that I would usually prefer to see the rides in their original state rather than see them "modernized", but for some reason I don't seem to mind this modernization. I think as long as they weave the new characters into the existing scenes without messing with them too badly or omitting any of them entirely, I think it will still retain its retro-Disney magic while adding a little something for the movie fans out there.

    I am bummed that it is going to be closed while we are there in June because we love the ride and never miss it. But I am more upset by the fact that my SIL who hasn't been to WDW in 30 years and her Husband who has NEVER been to WDW will not get to ride PotC. I think about all the people who may be making their trip of a lifetime to go to WDW to celebrate the Happiest Celebration on Earth only to be turned away from PotC, one of the classics that has helped build WDW into what it is today. I know if I were in that postition that I would be really upset.
