    Was at Disney yesterday for the sole purpose of seeing the re-kajiggered Pirates of the Caribbean...



    I have my issues with them changing the Auctioneer's voice and patois more than I do with them reconfiguring the scene. The loss of the sometimes working Davy Jones mist curtain was offset by the more moody and freaky Optical illusion and lighting. Throughout the ride...minor adjustments. They cleaned up some of the pirates a bit too much, or just brightened up the lighting too much. Needs some minor adjustments volume wise too. Some of the scenes are dampened by the too loud previous scenes, or just too low volume on the new ones. Overall...a nice redo without stripping away too much.

    The new dialog on the reconfigured auction scene is just awkward. I also feel like Redd (the female pirate) doesn't match the style of the other audio animatronics at all, she looks too new/modern.

    I'm glad they brought back the original audio in the tunnel after the treasure scene and got rid of the mist water fall. That new illusion is great and illustrates the transition from the "dead pirates" portion of the attraction the "lively pirates" very well.

    Pixar Pier: Over 90 Photos from Disney California Adventure’s New Attraction
    http://collider.com/pixar-pier-image...nia-adventure/

    Well, the Incredibles re-skin on the coaster is nice. LOTS of branding...LOTS of lines. Overpriced specialty foods and treats with ridiculous lines. Noisy, hot...lacking in shaded areas. Not my fave part of California Adventure, but I never went on the pier before, so it hardly matters.

    Since Jurassic Park will be closed soon and turned into a modern Jurassic World ride, here is the history of the ride in Hollywood.
