Disneyland opened its Pirates of the Caribbean ride in 1967. But, it recently closed it down to give one specific scene a makeover. The Bridal Auction portion of the ride used to feature a banner that said “Take a Wench for a Bride.” It included a woman tied up and waiting to be sold to the highest bidder.
But, the theme park decided to re-brand Redd as a powerful woman auctioning off stolen hens. When news broke of the closing and the change, not everyone was having it. In fact, I posted a blog about it on our Facebook page and a lot of people were against it. You can read that blog here.
Here is the original Pirates of the Caribbean ride at Disneyland before the update:
I think it’s fine. But, I never experienced the ride beforehand. It seems like a small portion of the ride to me. So, what do you think about the change to the Pirates of the Caribbean ride?
