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?

Leave your comments on Facebook and on Twitter.  Plus, VOTE your mind in the poll below!  Its another mini-refurbishment from our friends at Walt Disney Imagineering, folks.  Did they hit a ‘home run’?  Or, did they deliver a ‘dud’?

Memories of Yesterday – Innovations of the Future

A month or so ago, I reported that Mrs. All in WDW and I visited the Odyssey Center in Epcot located between Test Track and World Showcase in order to convert our paper annual passes into the new, RFID-enabled ones of a plastic variety.  What I didn’t mention is that, while we were there, we were treated to a …

WDW Trivia! – The Answer

Good morning, fans!

If you read Friday’s post, you know that today is “Iron Man 3 Day”!  I can’t wait!  In the meantime, did you pick the right answer to yesterday’s “Pirate” trivia?!

The Magic Kingdom’s version of the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction is guarded by a watchtower called Torre del Sol but it is housed in a Spanish fort named Castillo Del Morro!  But, as of this writing, a whopping 60.53% of you knew that already.  Great job!

According to Wikipedia, the Magic Kingdom’s Castillo Del Morro is inspired by Castillo de San Felipe del Morro in Old San Juan –  the historic colonial section of San Juan, Puerto Rico.  Oh, and just so you know, the village of Puerto Dorado does play a role in a Pirates of the Caribbean attraction.  You can find it in Disneyland!

Have a great day, my friends!

Pirates Fort

WDW Trivia!

Mrs. All in WDW tells me that I really need to spend more time in the Magic Kingdom, so here we are.  We’ve jumped on the Monorail, left Epcot behind, and dashed to one of our favorite attractions.

Yo, ho, yo, ho!  It’s a pirate life for us!  Are you a pirate?  Then, solve this riddle!

The Magic Kingdom’s version of the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction is guarded by a watchtower and housed in a Spanish fort.  The fort is named __________.


Upset! Splash wins! Splash wins!

 Like an epic March Madness battle, after which this week’s poll was designed, four attractions entered this Disney-obsessed arena, and only one emerged with the crown.  It is Splash!  Call it the “king of the mountains”, but you also have to, henceforth, refer to it as the All in WDW Readers’ Favorite Magic Kingdom Attraction!

Yesterday, after 762 page views provided by 613 distinct visitors to the web site and a whopping 422 votes, we ‘made it so’!  And, what a shocking result it was … to myself and Mrs. All in WDW, at least.  Why?  Just consider the data …
