Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean ride removing 'bride auction' scene

Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean ride removing 'bride auction' scene

Yo ho, yo ho, no pirate's wife for me.

When Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean attraction reopens after routine maintenance next year, visitors can expect a big change in the decades-old ride.

In the original section of the ride, actors pose as local women with a sign that reads: "Auction, take a wench for a bride".

Brown confirmed that the changes to the auction scene will be made in July at the Paris park, and next year in the US parks, the Associated Press reports.

Ltd. now owns 145,277 shares of the company's stock valued at $618,000 after buying an additional 7,177 shares during the period. Focusing on Street analyst opinions, we can see that the current consensus target price on company shares is $6.19.

The tall redheaded woman from the bride auction will remain in the new scene but instead of being a prize of the auction, she will become a rifle-toting pirate, donning a feathered hat.

On Thursday afternoon, the Disney Parks Blog officially announced that there will be major changes coming to the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction in both domestic parks.

Now, the women being chased by the Pirates are carrying trays of food instead of simply running for the lives.

This is not the first time the venerable Disneyland attraction has undergone modifications.

However, DOJ already coordinates with the city under a program called the Violence Reduction Network, which began in 2014. Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel , a Democrat, has reaffirmed that the city will maintain its sanctuary status.

The auction scene originally featured a female character known as the Redhead being offered to lusty pirates under the hammer, but she will no longer be for sale after the changes have been introduced. Over the years, the company has introduced Pirates of the Caribbean movie elements, including adding an animatronic Johnny Depp as Jack Sparrow at the end of the ride.

The red head who is among those being auctioned off the moment guests come through now will become a pirate when the ride is altered, according to Disney. Disney declined comment on the sexism question, the Register reports.

In the current version of the ride, the scene depicts a market in which women are auctioned off, which, though someone somewhere apparently have thought it made some sense in the context of the pirate-themed ride, doesn't exactly send a message of empowerment to visitors. Just a couple of years ago the Haunted Mansion added a "headless" ghost to that classic attraction. What do you think of the changes coming to Pirates of the Caribbean?

Some will say messing with Walt Disney's original design is sacrilegious, but Disney has always changed with the times. "Change is a "tradition" at Disneyland that today's Imagineers practice", Sklar said in a statement.
