If you favorite part of the Pirates of the Caribbean ride is the brides of sale scene, where four women in chains, under a banner advertising them to be auctioned off as brides for the thieving pirates, you better hurry and take some pictures.  Disney announced it is removing the scene, seen as misogynistic in modern times, and replacing it with a scene showing town folk, lined up to surrender their valuables to the pirates.  The current banner of “Auction, Take a wench for a bride” will be replaced with a sign that says “Auction, Surrender yer loot.” And as for the Red Head the pirate ogle over?  She will remain but instead of being a prize of the auction, she will become a rifle-toting pirate, donning a feathered hat. Modernizing rides is nothing new for the parks, which ash seen many cages in culture over the last 60 years.  Men were only allowed to be skippers on the Jungle Cruise until 1994, when women could host the tour.  The Pirates of the Caribbean update has already taken place at Disneyland in California and will take place at the Magic Kingdom Park in Walt Disney World next year.
