Published: May 23, 2011 at 3:09 PMThanks for the report, Robert, but, uh... you didn't discuss your opinions on Star Tours. Are you waiting for an official opening?
Published: May 23, 2011 at 4:18 PMI don't like the new blackbeard effect as much as the one before. I felt the other one fit that effect more. But then again, I guess I need to see POTC4 before I judge.
Published: May 23, 2011 at 4:23 PMI figured we had enough Star Tours opinions on the site in the past couple of days. I'll wait a few days to talk about it more in-depth, from my perspective.
Published: May 23, 2011 at 8:58 PMI think Davy Jones should stay. He has more of the supernaturall feeling to him with "dead men tell no tales". Maybe a rotation of Blackbeard and Davy Jones?
Published: May 23, 2011 at 11:36 PMSo is it open 2moorow? for Regular guests or just AP
Published: May 24, 2011 at 7:58 AMAgreed on Jones vs. Beard. Hopefully Blackbeard is just a temporary thing for the release of the movie and following months. Once it's done, I'd rather see Jones come back. As you so aptly put, it's the more logical face to show when the effect is so otherworldy.

Published: May 24, 2011 at 9:59 AMI have read a news report that Blackbeard will be integrated along with Davy Jones eventually. I sent Robert the link a few days ago.
Published: May 28, 2011 at 11:00 AMMy family and I went on Pirates of the Caribbean last weekend and we felt that the projection of Blackbeard could have been enlarged so that it filled the foggy area like Davy Jones image did. It was odd seeing Blackbeard's image small and not filling the whole foggy area.
