Today is the big day! The Pirates of the Caribbean reopens with the new auction scene featuring the famous “redhead” at the Magic Kingdom. The change was announced last summer and we already saw the repurposing of the controversial red-headed woman over at Disneyland Paris.
This has been a highly debated change within the Disney community. While many fans have a sense of nostalgia and hold dear the fact that Walt Disney himself helped work on the original attraction, others argue that we must keep with the times and Walt would have wanted the change.
According to Disney Parks Blog, Walt embraced change to the Disney Parks and encouraged everyone to “keep moving forward”.
In this new scene, the famous red-head has joined forces with the pirates. Now rather than being sent off for auctioning, “Redd” has pillaged the town’s supply of rum and is awaiting her turn to auction off real goods- “Drink up me hearties, yo ho!”
Check out the video below.
Disneyland Park is scheduled to receive a similar update this spring beginning April 23rd.
