    My question is about the Pirates of the Caribbean ride. My family went to WDW in 2007 and the ride had Davy jones at the beginning. I was told that he was replaced by Black Beard. Is that true ? The only reason I ask is because my son is crazy about Davy.

    Hi Peter!

         Pirates of the Caribbean is a favorite ride for my son and I!  Currently, Black Beard is the Pirate that is shown on the the mist because of the recent Pirates movie, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.  Black Beard did replace Davy Jones in the mist, but your son will still be able see Davy Jones on the deck of the Pirate ship right after the waterfall (look to the left after the waterfall).  If your son loves Pirates, I would suggest the Pirate and Pals Fireworks Voyage and the Pirates League!

    I hope that your next Walt Disney World vacation is truly magical!

    Keep Dreaming Big!
