By the way, Mansion was originally planned as a walk through, not Pirates. And those plans were changed, so Mansion was never a walk through attraction. I even rode it in 1969, the year it opened, and subsequently in the early 70s, and it was always a ride. People, please get your facts straight, before offering a faulty history lesson.
I too hope that it pulls you into the world of the Pirates while on foot. The original attraction is fantastic and all, but you're on a boat... sitting in a boat. I'd want to walk through the Black Pearl, or through the island of Tortuga, etc.
