    I'm all for the change. But it's puzzling as to why they waited so long.

    Just because it was announced today doesn't mean they've been working on it for the past few months.

    Interesting guess it's a bonus as i'm a massive potc fan but i don't expect much. Guess they didn't release an opening date.

    I don't think the narnia ones sucked that bad. The lion, witch and the wardrobe had a neat seat and the actress playing the white witch was a neat effect. I also liked the Prince Caspian set as well. It was interesting and pretty well done. Was it amazing? probably not, but undoubtly cool for a park that needs more attractions.

    Disney has pulled the online version of the Mickey Monitor. Which leads me to one question: Can't they get anything right lately? Seems like the brain isn't talking to the rest of the body.
    Feel the power of Mjolnir....

    I agree, however I was still considering the time since Narnia has been closed...I do have hope for this..um..addition I guess you could call it.
    I still believe Narnia deserved a dark ride..

    I thought the POTC films should have had representation in the films at DHS since the beginning. In fact, I was hoping they never touched the original and made their own attraction based on the films.

    It only took them 9 years but I'm looking forward to this. Narnia was really a glorified trailer screening. This can be 100x more interesting.

    Geez Disney really dropped the bomb on this franchise. Could of been a huge hit for them in the Orlando parks even with the original ride at the MK.

    But the original ride is still a very popular attraction...and it has been updated to reflect the franchise...

    The Narnia attraction from what I remember of it was pretty poor (this was 2009), I remember going into a room that looked like it was made of stone wall and consisted of video screens essentially showing me trailers. You then get let out to look at a very small collection of props none of which were noteworthy.

    Was there an additional one created after that?

    I'm always fascinated by the making of movies and the props used so to be able to get that in an interactive way is even better :)

    From Disney Parks Blog, which confirms it will open in the fall.

    Details are still emerging, but the attraction will give guests a chance to become immersed in the world of the four “Pirates of the Caribbean” films, and an opening date will be announced later this year.

    According to Jason Roberts, show producer for Walt Disney Imagineering, “This is going to be an immersive experience. We’ll really delve into the story of Captain Jack Sparrow and put our guests in the middle of it all in new and exciting ways. Story is always the most important thing for us at Walt Disney Imagineering, but we’re always looking at new ways to tell the story that our guests have never seen before. In this attraction, we’ll let you walk in the footsteps of Jack Sparrow It’s not ‘the making of,’ not ‘behind the scenes’ … it is really a first-person experience. We worked with the archives as well as the filmmakers while they were shooting the last movie. And as a fan, I just loved sitting through those films again and again

    I thought that the video monitors playing the movie clips was a preshow, but then it turned out to be the whole experience.
