My DH is going to be so disappointed! He is a pirate at heart, and so wanted a pic!

But, it's not going to ruin our cruise, we love DCL!! And Castaway is my favorite place!!

SOOOO bummed!!! That was always our favorite thing - taking a little boat out there to see it! Going on the Dream on Jan 30 - here's hoping something is there!

Last year my son was heartbroken because Capt. Jack wasn't there - he'll be so disappointed!

From what people are posting here, maybe it will stay until the Pearl shows up?

Thanks for posting the picture. If I could ever figure out how to do that I would. I stood and watched the workers cut the FD apart for about 20 minutes. They used chain saws and then used the claw on the digger to smash and tear at the loosened parts. I watched the whole bow portion get smashed off and the dredged up by the claw. Parts of the boat were dumped on the dock and then pushed along the ground by the digger. I really don't think that it was a renovation, it was pretty drastic.
I work with a lady whose husband worked as a marine mechanic on the set of Pirates 3. She in fact was with him on location and had dinner with many of the actors. She told me that the Dutchman is built onto the hull of a barge (no motors) so has to be towed. All that superstructure would be top heavy if they were towing it somewhere. The Pearl is built onto a real motorized boat and can travel under it's own power.
I really hope they bring the Pearl in. Actually it would be a better fit with the Captain Jack photo op.
I shall miss the Dutchman but whatever it is they really need a pirate ship there as when you approach the island it really sets the tone. Here's hoping it gets replaced very soon.

I liked seeing the Flying Dutchman at Castaway Cay, but it won't make or break my trips there not seeing a ship.

I'm glad we got to see the FD last was amazing to watch it get closer as we approached CC from our verandah and I got some great photos thankfully, both from our verandah and from shore.

I'd love to see the Black Pearl as well, but doubt that will be there in the next 2 1/2 weeks!

After seeing this thread, I got a little worried. I called DCL and asked a few friends of mine that witll work for Disney. As far as any one knows right now, the Dutchman, is being renovated and refurbed, and she being removed from CC. By all consensus of the people I talked to, Id be looking to see her in one of the upcoming Pirates movies. There is no time frame if shes coming back, and no one mentioned the Pearl. One of the reasons that she is moved, is that there is concern that the prop wash from the bigger ships could conceivably move or damage the FD. Plus her deteriorating condition.

If the Dutchman is going to Hi, its not that hard to get her there. Towing her would be too long and costly, so the easier thing to do, would be to lift her out of the water and put her on the deck of another ship. Assuming thats where shes going to. There also filming in Puerto Rico. Theres a beach scene at the end of the movie.Id say thats the moer likely location for her to go to be filmed.

Assuming that what Im hearing is correct, its probably easier for Disney to pull all of the old set off the barge, and build brand new, and assuming that she is going to come back to CC, make her more weather proof.

We are just off the 11/14 cruise and the Flying Dutchman was not there. We saw pieces of it in a back area and it looked like it was being taken apart. I am assuming our cruise may have been the first since they started taking it apart, because I hadn't read anything here about it.

I will be sad to see the FD gone, but if the BP shows up that would be really awesome. I am going in April so hopefully something will be there. We are taking my DD's BF with us and she had told him about the FD being there so he seemed excited to see it so I'm not sure if I want to tell her about it or just wait until it gets closer to the time that we leave and see what's going on with that area.

I'm sad the FD will be gone for my Dec 12th cruise. I took some pictures last year of the FD and I guess that will have to do. Thanks for the heads up everyone.

When we were there in June the FD seemed to be really listing, and was not looking good. It will be really strange to see nothing where it used to be, but it will make for unobstructed shots of the Magic, Wonder, Dream and Fantasy. On the other hand if they bring in the Black Pearl that would be cool too...
