    When I went to Disney World in the mid 90s, the scene of the drunk pirate on the cannon, & possibly the pirate ship, weren't moving or lit.

    rip "we wants the redhead" because being historically accurate in a theme park ride meant for fun is apparently a direct attack on women I guess

    Anyone agrees that Disney should stop changing rides just to be PC.

    It's ashame that the original concept of the ride has to change, along with it's intended goal of being a near-true-to-life experience of the Golden Age of Piracy, but it's the price that comes with expanding that vision and going outside of those established boundaries.

    I wouldn't expect the Pirates ride to stay the same with the success of it as a franchisable movie series. If they didn't update it to accommodate for the movies success, then nobody on the ride would be able to distinguish between the two mediums. That's why the concept of brand recognition exists, to help people identify and legitimize their experience with said brand to prevent confusion over other mediums with a similar theme.

    In the end, it's Disneys IP and they can do whatever they want to it.

    I think Disney is a bunch of pussies that just want to cater to liberal social justice idiots

    I think it's a sign of how people are overly sensitive today -_- Let's just say your child goes through the ride. They wouldn't think anything of it because they don't know the significance of what's happening. Proof being a lot of cartoons that snuck in adult stuff wasn't caught until way later. I think a lot of it was people as adults went through it for the first time and knew what it was referring to and because today's parents like to overreact to things it was changed. I saw a movie where husband asked wife would there be any black kids there and she spells out black instead which made the earlier her spelling white make more sense. Basically, she isn't trying to not mention race? why?

    I found the video informative. But the comments of the people are concerning. There is a strong trend of low level worship to the ride and characters. It is only a theme park ride that will change as required. Also the underlying themes of rape and sexualised treatment of women, along with violence, and anti social behaviour is concerning. Why is it enjoyable to show this to children as entertainment? Could they watch the movies like Clockwork orange and think this is also family friendly entertainment?

    all the issues the critics said about the ride were stupid. a shame Disney caved to the pressure.... if you didn't like the ride how it was then it's simple don't go on the ride.. your seeing how a pirate lived in those days. like it or not it was how it was. all the changes over the years they made to make the critics happy..ruined the ride.

    I went on the original ride several times as a kid and teen. I think they should have just left it as it was, and forget the movie tie in which IMHO ruined it. after all pirates supposedly raped, burned and pillaged. they did'nt sit politely with ladies and make gentle conversation, and act like gentleman..people need to stop sterilizing everything, this is not the Victorian Era, stuff happens, it isn't pleasant to see and even less pleasant to experience, but it still happens, its called reality. . . .

    Should’ve kept it how it was, everything has to be so safe these days. Maybe put a warning when you enter the ride to avoid lawsuits or offending people. Now people want to take the Jack Sparrow part because of Johnny Depp’s recent problems.

    I suppose I can understand that some people might feel a little uncomfortable with this ride, but I think people need to understand that pirates acted a whole lot worse than that in real life. People are turning into wussies today
