    Hopefully it was just a 1 day thing - it's not on the official rehabs and closures list on the website (at least not in the past couple of days anyway). I love that part of the ride - I hope they fix it sometime in the next couple of weeks before I get there!

    The lack of squid-face isn't distressing to me. I'm not a fan of the movie tie-ins. To me, it ruins the experience. Imagine riding the Haunted Mansion and having an Eddie Murphy AA arbitrarily popping out of random scenes. Wouldn't that ruin it for some of you? Thankfully, Murphy's movie wasn't a success so we probably won't be subjected to that. I know this is probably a minority opinion, but not everyone likes the new POTC.

    I like the effect. However, Davy Jones scares one of my sons. So if it is there, great and if not, it will be okay for my family.

    For balance. It seems many are only comfortable with seeing their opinion mirrored in posts. I see things differently and choose to express those opinions. Why are you so threatened? I'm not allowed to say I liked something better the old way? How intolerant. If you read my post about the Pop Century did you also notice I said I liked the way Riverside is landscaped? Is that being negative too? Lighten up.

    I was there Nov 14th-Nov 21st. And it wasn't working then . It has been down a few weeks now. It's something with the projector.

    If it isn't fixed by the time we get there, Jake won't be able to pick Davey Jones' nose as we go by.

    I agree with you, I don't like the movie tie-ins either.

    Thank you. I miss the "original" chase scene too.

    Yea, PoTC is a classic Disney ride, I wished they would have kept the original. That being said, the movie tie-in didn't change the ride too much. It is not as distracting as Murphy would be in HH
