    According to the art, they will be selling stolen goods at an open auction? Color me confused as to how that makes an sense.

    I'd agree with anyone who says the auction scene is kind of deplorable and depicts human trafficking. There's not much innocent or benign about it.

    That said, this is censorship of art, and such censorship of art infuriates me. I absolutely resent this change.

    They're...PIRATES!!!! They are not innocent or benign people! They are murderers and scumbags! It's right there is the theme song:

    We kidnap and ravage and don't give a hoot!

    Seriously, do people expect to see them saving kittens and volunteering at the local homeless shelter??? Cripes!

    Glad you're still against the change, though.

    Exactly. Why not be offended by the entire ride? Just get rid of it as a whole.

    Hold your horses, I'm with you completely! Like I said, it's kind of twisted, but totally appropriate for the subject matter. Is it appropriate for the venue, Disneyland? I'm sure someone has a great argument as to why not, but I frankly couldn't care less. Censorship of art is worse. I know "Disneyland is not a museum," but Pirates of the Caribbean is a pop culture icon and deserves to be preserved. Adding Jack Sparrow is one thing. But this is like painting over the Mona Lisa.

    It is difficult to not see the argument of those advocating for such change, which is why I imagine it is happening. The strongest argument that P+R seems unable to grasp is the most simple one: It has been there, and has been a non-issue, for 50 years. The minute somebody internally threw a fit, concerned that someone in the parks might eventually throw one, it was a done deal. Sad. Go check their press release on Disney Parks Blog; very vocal opposition to the change, which surprises me because they usually censor their comment section, no?

    I think they used to censor more heavily than they do now. It must now just be if you're saying something outright offensive or an attack on someone.

    Up next for the READ and ROAST: Pixar Pier @ DCA....

    What in the absolute HELL????????????

    Holy crap, Disney has done it again. Lasseter... I respect and love your enthusiasm for Disneyland, I really do. I love your energy and your dedication. But man, do I hate you right now. The killing of DCA continues with more IP, specifically Pixar, but this time they're retheming an entire LAND. This land happens to be one of my favorite areas of the park. All of that work put into it during DCA's 5-year rebirth will go down the hole and will ultimately have been for nothing. I'm beyond angry.

    And now PPP is heading to Disneyland. Instead of killing the parade, once and for all, it's moving across to my park.

    What a disappointment!!!!!

    Basically everything announced for Disneyland at the D23 Expo deserves to be in this thread.

    Pixar Play moving to Disneyland? Why? Why is Paradise Pier being given a cheap overlay? Why do the people in charge of Disneyland think this is okay?

    I completely agree with this. I'd much rather see theme-based lands with multiple movies represented, than entire lands only representing 1 IP.

    They theme the regular spooky attraction to an all-out festive Halloween themed attraction for Halloween. It works perfectly. Jack o lanters, skulls, flickering candles, creepy sing-song rhymes, crazier music. I would be devastated to not be able to ride HMH to celebrate Halloween. It is a must do for Halloweentime. If it was only changed for Christmas, then I probably wouldn't ride it. Plus, since Christmas goes up mid October, to change the ride for only Christmas means the ride would likely be closed Halloween and reopen the first or second week of November.

    They are supposed to be lovable pirates though. We set sail WITH them and enjoy them. They are loves by their mommies and dads. Sexist/body shaming humor was much more mainstream and acceptable in the 60's. Now, humor has shifted and these topics are usually seen as edgy when comedians "go there." Disney is a lot of thing, but its not edgy.
