Disney World’s Pirates of the Caribbean attraction in Magic Kingdom’s Adventureland closed earlier this year for refurbishment. The one change that generated the most buzz was modernizing the infamous redheaded auction scene. The original scene portrayed the pirates selling off the local women including the infamous redhead in a bride auction. In the new update, the auction now sells the townspeople’s belongings rather than their women!
However, on a recent visit to Pirates, Chip noticed that there have also been some other noteworthy though slightly more subtle changes worth mentioning. It would appear that Disney World has also removed the mermaids from the beach scene near the start of the attraction.
For those familiar with the ride, you’ll notice that the boat with the skeleton mermaid is no longer there as well as the chest.
Though the average rider is unlikely to be impacted by this subtle change, many Disney World fans will definitely notice that the mermaid references are now missing from the ride.
Readers are encouraged to keep following along with Chip and Co. for the latest in Walt Disney World news and updates.
