Disney’s Use of Monkey Island


New Member
So I’m on vacation at Disney World with the family, and guess what I hear playing in one of the buildings in the Pirates of the Caribbean area? None other than the Scumm Bar theme from Escape from Monkey Island! So Disney knows they own the property, just wish they’d do something with it!

That's exactly what they are doing - they are slowly taking bits and parts of the MI series and monetizing it in various ways (Pirates movies, increasing revenue for their Disney resorts via playing the theme songs for various Pirates rides, etc). Sadly I think we have lost the series to Disney, But in some ways, they are 'kind of' keeping it alive via the Pirates films or by playing the MI themes knowing it'll illicit memories for the select few who recognize the tracks.
