Pirates of the Caribbean will be closed from February 26, 2018 through March 18, 2018, presumably for a refurbishment of the auction scene. This Magic Kingdom attraction has been a subject of much discussion lately, after the Disney Parks Blog announced that the auction scene would be redone. The current scene shows women being auctioned off and pirates chanting that they “wants the redhead”. Fans of the attraction spoke up loudly about their feelings – many thought it is time for a change to be more politically correct and others want the original scene to stay. The new scene will have the Redhead as a pirate auctioning off stolen goods.
A refurb date is not yet set for the Disneyland attraction.
