Meanwhile in Walt Disney World, the Orlando version of the ride reopened to the public featuring a new scene.
The scene that previously portrayed women being bought and sold was revamped to be a bit more family friendly.
I mean, yea that's a little dark for Disney.
The scene, shown below, now has the infamous redhead as a pirate auctioning off goods from the town people.
This isn't the first time the ride has been adjusted with the times. Back in the 90's, there was a scene that had pirates chasing women around their homes. Again, a bit dark for Disney. The ride was updated to have the women chasing the pirates with with rolling pins trying to catch them for stealing. Much funnier.
Although I think this update was needed, we'll always remember that famous line...
We wants the red head!
