As Disney moves towards updating many attractions, some elements end up getting removed all together. Do you think Disney should leave these controversial elements or keep them as is?
Changes? Or Progress?
Disney has made many changes over the years to its attractions. Sometimes these changes do improve the attractions, and other times, the original elements get completely removed and alter the attraction forever.
Classic attractions such as Splash Mountain and The Jungle Cruise are two such attractions.
Splash Mountain is getting a brand new re-theme and will soon be a “Princess and the Frog” attraction. Fans are torn on this big move. Many would prefer the attraction be kept as is, and many can’t wait for this welcome change.
The Jungle Cruise was also drastically altered to get a more modern update. The attraction now has a new backstory that moves more towards inclusivity and removes many controversial cultural elements from the ride.
Several years ago, Pirates of the Caribbean underwent refurbishment to drastically alter a controversial scene that was well known on the attraction.
The famous “redhead” that we now see as a powerful pirate auctioning off chickens used to be very different. Formerly, this scene featured men auctioning off the woman as a bride.
New changes to Pirates of the Caribbean gift shop
Reports are circulating on social media today about more changes to “Pirates of the Caribbean.” Specifically, design elements of the gift shop are the focus.
This morning (October 22), Disney Cast Members reportedly entered the shop at the end of the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction and began making some changes.
The shackles used as props on the wooden display fixtures were apparently removed.
Could this signify future changes being made to the classic “Pirates of the Caribbean?” Only time will tell, but we will be sure to update you on any changes being made.
