I did just read on allears.net that Pirates will be closed for refurb June 17-20. Obviously not a major refurb, but something. Anyone know what they're doing?

This was put in sometime towards the end of last year I believe.. they are images in the water before you get to the drop.. Not animatronics. There is also a mermaid skeleton on the beach area on the left hand side.

Yeah, the effect was pretty lackluster when I saw it a couple of weeks ago. I always wondered how it would work if you took a little kid on the new Little Mermaid ride and then POTC...'Mommy, why does that skeleton look like Ariel?!'

As is usually true, this seems unlikely. Probably just something the CM was saying to have a little fun. I'll have to look up the DLR version on YouTube or something as I've never been there and probably never will.
