Redd Pirate Meet and Greet Coming to Disneyland Park this Summer

Arriving this summer at Disneyland Park is a fierce and independent pirate known as Redd. A bit mysterious by nature, Redd travels to various ports throughout the Caribbean—selling rum and collecting coin, and will soon be taking a journey to visit with guests in New Orleans Square.

Be on the look out for Redd this summer strolling around New Orleans Square!

Beginning today, guests visiting Pirates of the Caribbean at Magic Kingdom will be treated  to the new version of the attraction’s auction scene which was first announced last summer.

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.

You can get a  sneak peek of this new scene in the photo above.

The auction scene in the attraction at Disneyland Paris already received a similar revision last year and  Disneyland park will  receive similar updates to its Pirates of the Caribbean attraction later this spring, with work beginning April 23.

Previously announced over the summer, Disney is changing the attraction to be more politically correct.  According to Disney, you’ll discover that a familiar character is playing a new role joining the pirates ranks and helping the local townspeople “unload” their valuables at the Mercado auction. In the U.S., this famous redhead will appear in a similar scene at the Magic Kingdom Park and Disneyland park in 2018 following a previously scheduled refurbishment.

Pirates of the Caribbean is scheduled to be closed April 23 – June 7; reopening to guests on June 8, 2018.  Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World Resort is currently closed to remove the auction scene while Disneyland Paris completed their refurbishment last year.
