What about this info that ZZalgern0n found:

Detailed rumors of update to Disneyland's Haunted Mansion

Woobot has an Imagineer friend who's passed him detailed (but unconfirmed)
rumors of an upcoming renovation of Disneyland's Haunted Mansion:

The biggest changes will be coming to the attic scene, as that's where the
new plotline will be most evident. As it is now, the attic scene is simply
a cluttered and dusty place with a ghost inexplicably dressed like a bride
with that spooky beating heart. But when the additions are all installed,
the bride will become a much more sinister character who has apparently
been killing off all of her previous husbands. As the doombuggies pass
through the attic, riders will see portraits of several dashing young
gentlemen, with each portrait piled next to "the loot" that the man
brought in to the marriage. Those portraits will look familiar as they'll
be the same faces that were just beginning to appear in ghost form back in
the seance circle. But a new special effect will allow the heads of these
gentleman to suddenly disappear from the portrait, as if they had been
decapitated in a grisly murder. And when riders arrive at the exit of the
attic scene, the bride will still be there, this time in a new location
and clutching a bouquet of wedding flowers that magically turns into a
blood stained axe as each vehicle passes by.

we hit the park on sunday and the line for pirates was long all day long.

they've already removed a few things - we missed the guy with the dirty foot that you float under and the 2 guys hoisting the chest at the end were missing. the guy at pieces of eight told us it was going to be a radical re-working of the story line and that it would be closed until next decemer!!!!

haunted mansion was already closed.

CAPTAIN JACK SPARROW TO JOIN THE AUDIO-ANIMATRONICS CREW OF DISNEY’S PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN ATTRACTION

Classic Attraction in California and Florida Adding New Characters Inspired by Hit
Film Franchise Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean

ANAHEIM, Calif. / ORLANDO, Fla. (Feb. 2, 2006) - - First the theme park attraction inspired the movie – now the movie is inspiring the attraction.
Pirates of the Caribbean, the classic Disney theme park adventure brought to the big screen in Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, is adding new characters and features from the blockbuster entertainment franchise and debuting when the next adventure begins in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest.
Both the Disneyland Resort in California and Walt Disney World Resort in Florida will close the attraction in March to complete the updates in time for the opening of Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest on July 7. The attraction will re-open at Disneyland on June 24 and in Florida’s Magic Kingdom on July 7.
The attraction will feature the addition of two of Hollywood’s most infamous buccaneers, Captain Jack Sparrow and his nemesis Barbossa. Joining the wildest crew that ever sacked the Spanish Main, Captain Jack and Barbossa add an exciting new twist to the attraction’s original storyline as they race to be the first to claim a cache of plundered treasure.
“Successfully adding the popular characters from the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ films with the mythology of our classic attraction is an example of Disney synergy and Walt Disney Imagineering at its finest,â€￾ said Jay Rasulo, chairman of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts. “These additions will result in an exciting new chapter for the attraction and an unforgettable experience for our guests, giving them another reason to come and be a part of our continuing 50th anniversary celebration.â€￾
Woven into some of the attraction’s most memorable scenes, the rival swashbucklers will be seen interacting with some of the more familiar Audio-Animatronics buccaneers found inside the ride-thru adventure. Also making a guest appearance is the ghostly Davy Jones from the second movie in the series, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest. But new characters are only the beginning. New special effects will also be added to enhance the “Pirates of the Caribbeanâ€￾ theme park experience.

Page 2 – Pirates

Created under the direct creative supervision of Walt Disney himself, Pirates of the Caribbean is the quintessential Disney theme park adventure, a swashbuckling voyage that transports guests back to the days when pirates and privateers roamed the Spanish Main. Starring a comical cast of rascals, scoundrels, villains and knaves, the world-famous attraction sends guests of all ages on a boat ride through mysterious caverns where “Dead men tell no talesâ€￾ and then into a colonial era Caribbean seaport under siege by a band of fun-loving pirates. The attraction’s jaunty theme song, “Yo Ho (A Pirate’s Life for Me),â€￾ sets the show’s light tone with its tongue-in-cheek depiction of high-seas lawlessness.
The original incarnation of Pirates of the Caribbean premiered on March 18, 1967, in New Orleans Square at Disneyland in California. Featuring more than 120 Audio-Animatronics performers, lavishly decorated sets and special effects, it’s considered to be one of the most spectacular and enduring attractions ever created for a theme park. With its setting revised slightly to fit a Caribbean Plaza location in Adventureland, the attraction opened to guests at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom on December 15, 1973. More than 500 million people have experienced the rollicking fun of Pirates of the Caribbean in California and Florida over the past 39 years.
“Enhancing the classic Pirates attractions with new characters and new technology will ensure their relevance and place in Disney theme parks as timeless adventures,â€￾ said Tom Fitzgerald, senior creative executive for Walt Disney Imagineering. “We’re adding a layer of storytelling from the films to the attraction while retaining all the familiar elements that make it vibrant and exciting for every age group.â€￾
The Pirates of the Caribbean additions are one part of the “Happiest Celebration on Earth,â€￾ an 18-month salute (continuing through 2006) to 50 years of Disney park magic around the globe that started with the opening of Walt Disney’s original park, Disneyland, in 1955.

Went for the film on Saturday (and got seated near the governor and Marilyn Manson - who was mysteriously escorted out before the film started) Anyway, saw the film and fell asleep a few times .... some fish monsters, jars of sand, face painting.. I couldn't keep up with all that mishmosh.. They sure know how to throw a nice event down there though. Lots of attention to detail - So the ride looks nice and maybe a little more functional. Everything seems to be darker and louder and cleaner. Most everything you loved is still there - and the first two Depp scenes are fairly subtle... OH! and the pirates are chasing women again!

Here's a murky home video from youtube - Guess it was taken yesterday:

I guess if you listen to the old one there is a bunch o' stuff missing from the soundtrack. "These be the last friendly words...." and such.

Sounds like they rerecorded the "Yo Ho Yo Ho A Pirates Life for Me" song, too.

I think they should scrap any previous versions of Cliff "Ukelele Ike" Edwards singing "When You Wish Upon a Star" and have Rod Stewart re-record them.
You gotta keep things fresh you know. |:(




(and Johnny - spit out your gum if you're going to be on camera - it's just plain white trash! )
