Walt Disney World Re-Opens Pirates of the Caribbean With the New Auction Scene

We announced previously that Pirates of the Caribbean in the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World had closed in order to make a major, controversial change among Disney fans.  This major change impacted the iconic and famous scene with the “redhead” where she appeared at the “wench auction” and you could hear the pirates chanting, “we’s wants the redhead.”  Pirates of the Caribbean has officially re-opened at the Magic Kingdom and guests are now seeing the new version of the attraction for the first time.


The attraction has made several changes throughout the years. This scene change to the auction scene will also be implemented at all versions of the attraction around the globe.  Here is how Disney Parks Blog described the changes:

“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.”

We are glad that the attraction has re-opened since we always miss our favorite attractions when they undergo refurbishments.  Who else out there can’t wait to see this new scene?  If you have already seen it, what do you think about it?

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!
