People are speculating that they will be adding mermaids or Penelope Cruz. What I think it will be is either:

From Mike GallagherI'll go with Penelope, as long as she rides with me and only me.

From Dominick DVery funny Mike! Im betting on her or the mermaids, but an interactive queue was confirmed some time ago.

From Ryan SpannI could've sworn they already had an interactive queue while I was there in August. Guess I wasn't paying attention. But, I really can't say which change they would rather go with. Maybe we'll see a little bit of both go in.

From Andrew DoughertyMermaid animatronics would take like a day at LEAST to fit into that ride. A Penelope is way more likely or a prop. I really don't want mermaids.

From Daniel EtcheberryMaybe it's meet-n-greet with the real Penelope!

From Jay R.Hey Daniel, I have a feeling that would turn into a meet-n greet-n-stay too long-n-now we have to file a restraining order against a ton of guest.......if it were the real Penelope!

From James RaoCan they just change it to be more like the version in California?

Barring that, they should give away Jack Sparrow Guy-liner as you enter the queue.
From Mike GallagherDaniel said: "Maybe it's meet-n-greet with the real Penelope!"

Sorry, she's not available. She's in my boat until further notice, remember?
From Carrie HoodI'm not saying it's mermaids... but it's mermaids.

Debate right now is over if it's going to be an animatronic or via digital projectors onto the large "black netted holes of DEATH" cut into the scene currently.
From Daniel EtcheberryMike, no problem. Keira is in my boat :)

From Mike Gallagher^^Knightly? Or just in the daytime ? :)

From Andrew DoughertyIt says on Disneys official site that Pirates will be down for 1 day still.

From Robert NilesBlackbeard/Davy Jones mist screen replaced by Pirate Duffy.

From Ben ReevesRobert that would be brilliant! Perhaps that would be their way of keeping magic kingdom family friendly after everyone's rant of alcohol being allowed?!?

From Eric SWord is mermaids are going in before the drop on the right side. Nothing too exciting.
Posted September 28, 2012 at 8:23 AM
From steve leeIt's a week late, but I want to give a slow clap to Mike for that horrible Knightley pun.
Posted September 28, 2012 at 8:07 PM
From Mike GallagherThank you, Steve. Better late than never. If one reader (maybe you?) groaned at that, then my work is done.

From Daniel EtcheberryI should open a new related thread: PENELOPE OR KEIRA? - CAST YOUR VOTE
Posted September 29, 2012 at 1:39 PM
From Tony DudaPENELOPE OR KEIRA?
Posted October 3, 2012 at 11:14 AM
Penelope has an equally hot younger sister. So, if one is to dream about unlikely situations.......
From Mike Gallagher
Posted October 3, 2012 at 11:22 AM
PENELOPE *AND* KEIRA?
So, if one is to dream about unlikely situations.......
FTFY, Tony. :)
From Dominick DI would comment on Penelope and her sister, but that wouldn't be family friendly.

Posted October 11, 2012 at 5:51 AM
