Walt Disney World has finally reopened its popular “Pirates of the Caribbean” attraction — minus the controversial “Bride Auction” series.
The scene, which appeared in the “Pirates” attractions in Disney World, Disneyland paris, Disneyland Paris, originally depicted a group of women bound by a auction block, with a banner that says “Auction: Take a wench for a bride” is hanging above their head. A group of pirates in the neighborhood can also be heard, ask the red-haired “girl,” who was the most prominently displayed woman on the block.
DISNEY ANNOUNCES OPENING DATE FOR ‘TOY STORY LAND’
If the ride’s reopening on March 19, however, the entire scene is decorated as a chicken auction, the auctioneer offers about the egg-laying capability of chickens, the Orlando Sentinel reports.
The animatronic redhead is also recast as a pirate self — appointed Redd — “that was just looted in the city of rum on offer and has something to say about it,” says the Disney Parks Blog.

“Close to the cluckin’,” Redd says the auctioneer, the redirection of her fellow pirates’ attention on her own were, according to footage posted by Attractions Magazine. “The lord wants the rum — dontcha, guys?” she hollers.
Redd will also be with a gun in her new role — a far cry from the helpless “girl” of the ride’s previous incarnation.

“Our team thought about how to best update of this scene,” said Kathy Mangum, senior vice president of Walt Disney Imagineering, in a statement to The O. C. Register, when the changes were announced in June 2017.
“We think this holds to the original vision of the appeal, as provided by Marc Davis, X Atencio, and the other Disney legends who first brought this classic to life.”

This is not the first time that Disney has changed and the “Pirates” rides to more family-friendly. In 1997, Disney redesigned a scene in which pirates behind women, and changed so that the pirates looked behind the women for the loading of the food they bore. She had also augmented a scene with Jack Sparrow of the “Pirates of the Caribbean’ film franchise.
