Pirates of the Caribbean New Redhead Auction Scene!

Like Disney World a few months ago, Disneyland has kept most of the original aspects of the ride. But they have also introduced some new elements to this classic attraction.

OF COURSE we’re talking about the auction scene, which used to auction off women and now auctions the townspeople’s possessions. And yes, the redhead is now a pirate herself! These changes are said to be reflecting modern sensibilities, but are controversial with Disney fans around the world.

Speaking of, Redd is currently wandering Disneyland’s New Orleans Square if you’d like to get a picture yourself!

    if they continue adding modern sensibilities, one of these days we won’t even be able to recognize the Pirates ride at all! Making things politically correct, changing how things were at the time, just burns me up. Leave the ride alone!

    I think people need to chillax about the change, personally. I was never super against the original scene or anything, but I don’t see why the change is so upsetting to some people. I think it’s pretty cool. How are people complaining about a lady pirate? Lady pirates are cool. Whatever. Thanks for the update!

    Why do some folks think they can erase history by ignoring it? Parents that are horrified that their children are observing a scene where women are being auctioned off are missing a teachable moment. They can teach their children about it being wrong in the past and present day too, as it is still a fact of life today. Even in the US. My son is in law enforcement and used it as a teachable moment for his son, Number one, that it is so wrong and number two, to be aware of strangers approaching you because there are still bad people out there stealing children and others to sell in the slave market.
