some more pirate news
The ride has gone through changes over the years. In 2006, the addition of Captain Jack Sparrow, Captain Barbossa, and a projection effect featuring Davey Jones from Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest are sure to cause ire among purists fans. However changes started long before the current one.
In 2006, Walt Disney Imagineering will give both versions at Disneyland and the Magic Kingdom major overhauls to coincide with the release of the second movie in the Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy. Both storylines will be completely dismantled and replaced with storylines involving Captain Barbossa (from the first movie) and Davy Jones (from the second and third movies) leading separate searches for Captain Jack Sparrow through the many scenes of the original attractions. The "Hurricane Scene", the "Crews Quarters Scene", the "Captains Quarters Scene" and the "Treasure Scene" at Disneyland will all be unchanged visually except for a few new props used in the movies. The Disneyland ride will receive its official re-opening at the world premiere of Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest, which will also be held at Disneyland. 
The update, although little is known at this time, has recieved much criticism from fans of Disneyland, many claiming that being the final ride Walt Disney worked on, it should remain as he envisioned it. They also claim that it's a classic that's been operating nearly 40 years with no problems, and there is no need to change it now.
Despite the backlash, a sizeable portion of the community still supports the updates, citing Disney's wishes to have Disneyland forever changing.
