Walt Disney loved the idea of progress. So much so that he created entire attractions and theme park areas dedicated entirely to the concept (Walt Disney’s Carousel of Progress and Tomorrowland).

It comes as no surprise to hear that the Walt Disney Company has implemented this love of improvement into its work culture and is constantly pushing the boundaries of technology to bring the most immersive experiences possible to life.

Regardless of which Disney Park you’re visiting, there’s always something changing, and Walt Disney Imagineering is always looking for ways to improve.

…But you know the phrase, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it?” Apparently, the Walt Disney Company may need a reminder.

Changes were recently made to one of Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean attractions, and guests are dismayed that money, time, and energy were put into something as unprecedented and minute as this…

In Disneyland Paris, changes were quietly made to the Pirates of the Caribbean ride’s wait time display. As we can see in this social media post, the wait time display is now digital with a backlit screen.

However, Disneyland Paris guests are overwhelmingly disappointed by this addition.

After all, this seems like something that didn’t need any fixing: the wait time display wasn’t broken, and nobody asked for this kind of improvement.

Instead, Disney fans want to see money going into different, more pressing endeavors…such as fixing ride mechanics that are actually broken, replacing woefully outdated attraction mechanics, and providing overall TLC to older attractions instead of letting them waste away.

It may sound like Disney Parks fans are impossible to please, but we’re definitely siding with the fans instead of Disney in this case.

In the midst of multiple legal battles and plans for grand theme park expansions in Walt Disney World Resort, Disneyland Resort, and Disney theme parks all around the globe, we’d also rather see the Walt Disney Company focusing on more worthwhile endeavors.

Disneyland Paris’s version of the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction is a slow-moving boat ride, similar to the attractions found in Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort.

Guests set sail and embark on a swash-buckling adventure, keeping an eye out for Captain Jack Sparrow along the way…
