Pirates of the Caribbean Closes at Walt Disney World to Change Up “Redhead” Scene

We announced previously after a big announcement from Disney Parks Blog that Pirates of the Caribbean in the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World would be closing in order to make a major, controversial change among Disney fans.  This major change impacts the iconic and famous scene with the “redhead” where she appears at the “wench auction” and you hear the pirates chanting, “we’s wants the redhead.”  With this change, the “redhead” will still be in the attraction, but with an entirely different role.  The attraction has officially closed and isn’t expected to re-open until March 19th, 2018.

Here is the artist rendering released previously by Disney Parks Blog of what we can expect the new scene to look like without any reference to a “wench auction”.

This is a fairly major change to the story from the original attraction, and there are many guests out there who aren’t in favor of this change.  As with so many of the hard changes at Walt Disney World, it is sure to be amazing and done well by Disney, so we are excited to see how it will turn out.

Who is already anxious for Pirates of the Caribbean to re-open?

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
