Disney Parks announced that it will be replacing and updating the ‘Take a Wench for a Bride’ scene in its Pirates of the Caribbean rides. While the original concept of this scene is to be changed completely, the famous Red Head will be re-purposed as a pirate running an auction of looted goods.
This new scene will appear first at Disneyland Paris on July 24th with the reopening of the ride after its refurbishment. Disneyland and Magic Kingdoms adaptations will come following their routine refurbishment schedules in 2018.
Captain Barbossa, from the blockbuster films, will appear in the attraction for the first time, joining a skeletal crew in a scene unique to Disneyland Paris.
Disneyland Paris guests will also discover that the Blue Lagoon Restaurant has been taken over by pirates and will be called Captain Jack’s. It seems that Captain Jack won the restaurant in a wager and is now welcoming pirates of all ages to relax over a drink and hot meal. The interior of the restaurant has been re-themed and the establishment has been staffed with a fun-loving band of pirates.
How do you feel about these changes to a classic attraction in Disney Parks around the world?
