Pirates of the Caribbean’s New Auction Scene … What’s Your Opinion? [Poll]

Have you seen it?  The Pirates of the Caribbean’s new auction scene is now “on line”.  Courtesy of a post presented by WDWMagic.com, check the new scene out on YouTube at their link …

The new auction scene in Pirates of the Caribbean!

As reported by WDWMagic, “The pirate auctioneer now oversees a sale of the townspeople’s most prized possessions and goods.  In this scene, the familiar redhead figure has switched sides to become a pirate named Redd, who’s just pillaged the town’s rum supply and has something to say about it.”

What are your thoughts, my friends?  Are you glad that Disney updated this scene?  Do you like the result that they have presented?  Would you like to have seen something else … something better?

What?! Disney is Raising Ticket Prices Again?! Our Response …

That’s right, folks.  With immediate effect, the cost to visit the place “Where Dreams Come True” has risen to even greater heights.

Are you looking for a one-day ticket to the Magic Kingdom?  $119.  And, that’s the “regular” price!  Do you need it during a peak season?  $122!

Geez.  I remember the good, old days.  You know, the days where the idea of “breaking the triple-digit threshold” was thought to be impossible.  Want that $100 ticket now?

What is our response?  Well, Mrs. All in WDW and I might have been ahead of the game for once.  Late last month, our Annual Passes were due for renewal.

I thought that we were going to end up regretting this, but, because of the web site, we renewed my ticket.  However, due to rapidly-inflating costs (for everything WDW-related), we did not renew hers.

Before we get criticized for being anti-Disney, look at it this way – a Platinum Pass (for Florida residents) is now $729 … up from $679.  Folks, that is a bit over a 7.3%!  I don’t know about you, but I did not get a 7.3% raise last year.  Not even close.

True, we’re not Florida residents, but that doesn’t matter.  The $705 that I paid for my renewal still gave me sticker shock.  This time around, I couldn’t bring myself to hand over a whopping $1,410!

With less-frequent trips to Orlando in our immediate future, Disney’s announcement solidifies our feelings that we made the right choice.  For us, our budget couldn’t swallow the bitter pill.

Are we the only ones who feel this way?  Not at all.  Check out John Peters and Doug Davis as they dropped into the Main Street Pub yesterday to rant about this sad news.  Catch that excitement at …
