I’m a member of the Disney Parks Moms Panel, but this post is not influenced or sponsored. My love for the Redhead in Pirates of the Caribbean is on my mind!
Remember last year when Disney announced they were going to revamp the Redhead in the Pirates of the Caribbean ride at Walt Disney World Resort? I was soooooo worried! How could they change the Redhead? WE WANTS THE REDHEAD! I ran around the parks and the internet finding all the Redhead merchandise I could, hoping that I could preserve her memory. I found a Redhead Christmas ornament in Disneyland Resort last summer during my D23 trip, snatched my husband a Redhead shirt on a Walt Disney World Resort vacation, as well as Pirates anniversary D23 Alex and Ani exclusive bracelet!
But even with her original role gone, the Disney Imagineers did me proud…. don’t miss the VIDEO below with her new starring role…
The New Redhead
The day finally came for Disney to shut down the ride and install the updates, and it was a short time later that they reopened Pirates of the Caribbean (March 19, 2018) with the new Redhead. Instead of being the star item up for auction, our Redhead is now the lead auctioneer, brandishing a pistol and highly valued bottle of rum. You’ll even hear the male auctioneer’s famous lines refurbished with hints of his old script, which I loved.
Instead of We Wants The Redhead, the pirates call out, “We Wants the Rum!” What a clever use of script! Have you seen the new Redhead Pirates addition yet?
