Walt Disney World's Pirates of the Caribbean reopens today following a month long refurbishment to make changes to the ride's iconic auction scene.

The pirate auctioneer now oversees a sale of the townspeople’s most prized possessions and goods. In this scene, the familiar redhead figure has switched sides to become a pirate named Redd, who’s just pillaged the town’s rum supply and has something to say about it.

I like the idea too but the blog post was LOL worthy

fine line between a plus for show sake and synergistic shoehorn ... except when it actually changes the story.

Yeah, the blog post was lame but I don't really see a problem with a face character.

I...I actually kind of like the idea 😒

They weren't too enthralled when it was announced during the D23 panel...

Well, maybe someone can ask her why the pirates are auctioning off chickens and household goods instead of ravaging and pillaging...

lol, really? A face character? I swear they ask for trouble. Do they think guests are too stupid to understand the change over at Disneyland? I mean ... I shouldn't really be against a character or even a face character but ... That blog article was painful. I feel like I'd lose IQ points trying to write a Disney blog post. Sheesh.

No words. Just. Nope. No words.

It reminded me of the time they tried it out with Angelica doing M&G's during the time On Stranger Tides was released...
