Disney World’s Pirates of the Caribbean Reopens With New Role for Redhead

Pirates of the Caribbean at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom reopened yesterday after a short, but noteworthy, refurbishment. As they are doing across their parks globally, Disney decided to change the famous auction scene in the latter half of the ride, giving the ‘redhead’ a new role. Rather than being the prize in the auction, the redhead, now named “Redd,” is now an active participant in the auction scene.

According to Disney, “The pirate auctioneer now oversees a sale of the townspeople’s most prized possessions and goods. In this scene, the familiar redhead figure has switched sides to become a pirate named Redd, who’s just pillaged the town’s rum supply and has something to say about it.”

This Disney World change is similar to the one already made at Disneyland Paris. Pirates at Disneyland is also scheduled to receive the makeover next month.

I am founder and editor of DisneyNews.us. My passion for all things Disney goes pretty far back but was deepened by two semi-recent developments: 1) The birth of my son (who is now 7 years old and can't get enough Disney); and 2) Disney’s purchase of Lucasfilm/Star Wars (did I mention I was a super Star Wars geek?) I recently came to the realization that I spent a significant portion of my day reading articles about Disney and watching it with my son, so it only made sense that I would start sharing some of what I read and see and building a little community around it. Other interests include Disney, Sports, 80's Nostalgia, LEGO, Star Wars and Tech Gadgets. Other sites include DMR and VideoGamesStats.com.
