You can always buy them for 5x the cost on eBay!
lol It's never the same when you obtain special merch that way! It sucks, honestly.
My god, she BEAUTIFUL.
Oh, I don't know. With her complexion that dress seems like an unfortunate choice.
I was hoping they would give Barbosa the boot, remove the obnoxious Hans Zimmer music blaring in the fortress scene, bring back the old dialogue in the caves, reduce all the newer Jack Sparrow dialogue (the only characters not talking about Jack Sparrow are in the auction scene and the cat guy) and maybe give the AAs some Spaceship Earth-style upgrades. And don't tell me any of this is unreasonable.
There's also some "I was there shirts" for Saturday
Pirates has reopened. Anyone know what changed or was added, if anything?
According to the OC Register, it opened this morning after its six week refurbishment and ran for a bit, then promptly shut down for technical difficulties. And "for several hours" according to the Disneyland spokesman. http://www.ocregister.com/articles/ride-746726-disneyland-caribbean.html
So, on the merch front, there's a tee shirt, a pin, some cards, and a plastic pirate stein that they ran out of by 10:30 on the first morning. Anything Else?
It doesn't matter to my life, but ... meh.
50th Anniversary of It's A Small World
I'm afraid of how they'll celebrate the 50th anniversary of The Haunted Mansion.
'Mansion' will be a mayhem of merchandise releases I am sure, if the 40th and 45th are anything to go by.
There was a lot of stuff I recall being issued..most of it Disney Gallery related goods.
'Haunted Mansion' merch sells like crazy...so Disney will release a lot to conincide with any anniversary simply because it is risk free and guaranteed to sell.
'Pirates' unfortunately they seem to have a different attitude about, despite it being associated with the live action films and selling tons of merch.
Never mind the fact it is pretty much universally regarded as one of the greatest themed attractions ever made...anywhere.
That is how the Parks seem to like to 'celebrate' anniversaries now.
Limited edition merch releases and 'themed' food offerings.
( twirls finger in air )
There are exceptions, and those are welcomed and appreciated by fans as well as those who were involved in the creation and operation of such Attractions.
The 20th Aniversary Event(s) in the Park for the Indiana Jones Adventure in 2015 comes to mind, as well of the Small World 50th Anniversary happenings.
Getting back to 'Pirates..' -
It would have been nice to have seen something more substantial done or at the very least some kind of AP Event for the day.
It is rather well known...and definitely has its die hard fans.
You would think more would have been done to aknowledge it.
Haunted Mansion has always been more popular than Pirates in terms of number of fans, at least that's how I've seen it. I prefer Pirates myself but ya know, everyone's different and all that.
I am so glad that they decided to honor this attraction by allowing us to buy more pins, and collectible cups.
As someone who collects neither- the least they could have done was some artwork at the Disneyana, and some figurine replicas of some of the animatronics.
I agree. I was looking forwards to some high quality replicas. HM seems to get all of the good merchandise.
I don't collect pins because it would just be a never ending quest and i can't and don't want commit to that. Not interested in the Cups either, although I will admit the Pirates 50th stein with the skeleton steering the ship on top looks pretty cool.
Wasn't there supposedly supposed to be a new auctioneer animatronic?
There might be. The could have rebuilt it with better parts- but left it looking the same.
I watched a ride-thru video from yesterday and they finally fixed the mist projection... yay! Auctioneer looks identical. I compared his movements with an older video and did not see any difference in regards to range or smoothness. So even if there was a change made, it's not really noticeable.
Either it's a new AA with new animation, or it's new animation on the old AA. Either way, it's new animation, and it looks more natural than it used to.
What was wrong with the mist projection?
Separate names with a comma.
