Walt Disney World’s Pirates of the Caribbean Will Close in February to Change Auction Scene

We reported previously that the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction located in the Adventureland area of the Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World would receive a major refurbishment.  This major change impacts the iconic and famous scene with the “redhead” where she appears at the “wench auction” and you hear the pirates chanting, “we wants the redhead.”  From what we have learned, after the refurbishment the “redhead” will still be in the attraction, but with an entirely different role.  Per Disney Parks Blog, “You’ll even discover that a familiar character is playing a new role joining the pirates ranks and helping the local townspeople “unload” their valuables at the Mercado auction.”

 

We have learned that the refurbishment is finally set to begin in February 2018.  The attraction will be completely closed for the refurbishment, starting on February 26th.  It is expected to run through March 18th and completely re-open to guests on March 19th, 2018.

Here is the artist rendering of what we can expect the new scene to look like without any reference to a “wench auction”.

What do you all think of this change coming to Pirates of the Caribbean?  Will you miss the “wench auction” scene or do you think it is time for a change?

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!
