She is definitely not being used for Pirates 4 as Jerry Bruckheimer twittered yesterday that they have completed filming the movie and are in post production now with a trailer coming on 12/17/10.

Here is the retweet that was posted:

"Congrats Jerry RT @BruckheimerJB: Officially wrapped PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: ON STRANGER TIDES this week. Excited to share trailer 12/17"

I saw it being ripped apart...so did my 11 year old girl who started crying.

I have video, I'll try to post it soon.

We did hear from a fairly reliable source that its private owner will be rebuilding it, and that just the top and ends were being torn apart...which would make sense because why not just sink it, or wreck the whole thing instead of doing it little by little. Many of the staff have no idea what is going on and many tried to tell my kids that it was still there when asked where it went. My daughter spotted it from our verandah, it was quite sad, especially the pile of ship guts they tried unsuccessfully to hide behind a pile of rocks.

I was not thrilled this was going on while a ship was docked...it was loud and fairly traumatic for the kids.

I didn't read the whole post so sorry if this was already posted.

Just read the following in the Mouse for Less Newsletter:

"DCL NEWS & OTHER DISNEY DESTINATIONS

• The Flying Dutchman pirate ship at Disney's Castaway Cay is currently being refitted in preparation for a journey back to the sea. As all work for the Flying Dutchman's departure will take place during daylight hours, guests will likely hear and see maintenance staff and equipment. Work is scheduled to be completed by November 24, 2010. Where Captain Turner and the crew of the Flying Dutchman are headed, no one knows."

So sad.

This won't ruin my January cruise but it does change things. DCL for me is about the combination of all the little things. The Flying Dutchman was one of those little things that make the cruise experience complete. You won't see anything like it on other cruiselines.

I LOVE the pics we have in front of the FD.

Interesting. It sounds like they have no clue what they will do. Or maybe they just don't want to give too many details. Because from the pictures I am seeing, the FD will never sail again. But I could be wrong.

I just got back from our cruise. I asked our cruise director if it was coming back and he said no, but "You never know what ship might appear in its place"

Guess we will just have to wait and see!!

I must be the only person on the DIS who thought it was creepy, and totally ruined the look of the island.
I mean, here's this awesome, clean, beautiful space ....and there sat the ugly shell of a movie prop.

I'd been to Castaway Cay before it got there, and have been several times since it was there, and I like it better without.

Sorry....just my opinion.

Well for me, it wasn't that it added or took away from the atmosphere but it was just cool to know that I was at the ONLY private cruise island that had a REAL movie set from one of my favorite movies.

hmm 'private owner?' good bye FD hello BLACK PEARL!!

not a gambler, but i bet this or something like it is in order! Especially since PITC 4 is finished filming. Where is the FD now? is there some fancy retrofitting going on and maybe being relocated to CC??

We were surprised not to see the FD from our verandah yesterday. I asked Captain Jack where she went. He told me that William has taken her away...

While I have amazing pictures in front of the FD- I have to admit the view from the verandah is gorgeous and unspoiled, not looking into the back of a movie prop anymore. The view of the island is really spectacular.

I really hope they replace it with the BP! I just think there needs to be something there to represent Pirates of the Caribbean, ya know? Still for those who have been I'm sure it was disappointing to see the empty space where it used to be...

With the island expanding for Dream, seems like they may have something up there sleeve Disney is full of surprises, so I'm sure they won't let us down!

Any hope a replacement/Black Pearl could be in place by, oh, mid-December?
