    POTC Exterior

    While in the MK last week doing some reasearch, I happened upon three Imagineers talking outside POTC. Inquisitive little guy that I am, I did my best to eavesdrop.

    What I was able to ascertain, without any specific detail, was that the enxterior of the attraction, as well as the covered area, shop, etc., will all be getting a "makeover" as part of the overall "movie-cising" of the attraction.

    Will we see the end of Peglegged Pete? What will happen to the shop?

    Only time will tell, mateys!

    Thanks for the update. I will try to give them the benefit of the doubt on the redo-they know it is a classic, let's hope they keep it that way.

    But Lou-"Research" I mean, does your wife buy that?
    I am in need of some Disney magic!!

    Are we kidding with the "research" here?

    I am all for updating - as in making the sound improvements, painting, cleaning, but why remove Peg-Legged Pete!?
    Nothing to countdown to, so just smile and be happy everyday!

    No, really... it WAS research! I swear! (2 days in the MK... only rode the TTA, HM and WDWRR)

    And yes, not only does my wife buy it, but supports me on these trips as well (I know, Lou... go buy her something nice)

    As for Pete, I don't know that he will be changed, just speculating at what COULD be changed! I hope he stays as well!!

    I have to say I'm impressed with your self control, I'd have to do a little research on some other stuff too...

    You mentioned the store... they're not thinking of closing it as well are they? I didn't get some stuff last time I was there & I was planning to get it this April!

    I totally understand the need to periodically renovate attractions.

    What I don't understand is the strange life imitating art thing that they're donig here.

    POTC is a classic. It's so good, that they decide to make a movie that's molded around the mythos.

    Now, they're going to go back and dilute what was good just to make it more "recognizable" as it relates to that movie?!

    It just doesn't make any sense. It sets an unfortunate precedent too

    If they feel the need to toss Eddie Murphy or Jennifer Tilly all over the Haunted Mansion then I'm really going to be upset...

    I just got back from my trip on Wednesday, POTC was closed already, even though someone on here said it was not due to close till end of the month, and Peg-Legged Pete was gone off of his perch. I was severly bummed because I thought for sure I would be able to ride the good ole POTC at least 1 more time while on my trip.

    I'm definitely disappointed that I won't get to see the classic myself. I'll be down there the second week in May, and I will miss the ride altogether, like yourself.

    I'm sorry you had to miss out. I'm trying to figure out a plan to get around MK without going past that area, because all it will do is make me "homesick"...
