Dr. Pepper actually distributes about 40% of their product themselves, with 30% more coming from Coke and the last 30% from Pepsi in a distribution deal. That's why you'll see it at Coke and Pepsi places with soda machines (though sometimes they'll replace it with Mr. Pibb and whatnot).

In conclusion: We could've had Coke and Dr. Pepper.

If given the choice, I would drink Dr.Pepper over Coke, any old day.
I just like it better than Coke. :)

It's too bad about Pepsi going to the park. I agree that they probably had to give up virtually everything for that deal.

Considering how much Coke Gives Away to win Contracts, I'd love to see what exactly PepsiCo and their Chinese Partner gave away!

On this day in 1967, Pirates of the Caribbean debuted at Disneyland in Anaheim. Nearly 50 years later, as part of The Walt Disney Company Annual Meeting of Shareholders, Disney Chairman and CEO Bob Iger unveiled creative details including the first-ever Pirates-themed land and a new Pirates of the Caribbean attraction designed for the Shanghai Disney Resort.

“Pirates of the Caribbean is one of the most iconic attractions in our parks, and we really couldn’t imagine Shanghai Disneyland without Pirates,” Bob said. “We wanted to create a one-of-a-kind experience that would appeal to our Chinese guests while remaining true to its Disney heritage.”

For the first time ever, a Disney Park will be home to a Pirates-themed land—Treasure Cove—and an e-ticket attraction called Pirates of the Caribbean: Battle of the Sunken Treasure. The attraction will feature a combination of new technology and innovation to bring guests along a pirate adventure with Captain Jack Sparrow and Captain Davy Jones, providing our guests who visit the Shanghai Disneyland Park an experience unlike anything else in the world.

“We are extremely proud of all the work underway to bring the Shanghai Disney Resort to life,” Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Chairman Tom Staggs said. "And we’re excited to re-imagine the iconic world and characters of Pirates for the first time as an entire land that celebrates the creativity, imagination and adventure of both the fan favorite attraction and the popular film franchise.”

The announcement coincides with the completion of key structural work on the Pirates attraction, and marks another exciting milestone in the resort development. Progress continues with construction and Shanghai Disney Resort remains on target to open by the end of 2015.

There was a patent Disney applied for, and got (I assume?), and it looks
vaguely what a "new version" of POTC could run like.

A patent for a "possible" POTC continuous (OMNImover) ride system....maybe? We'll find out, late next year.

The entire Pirates land should look awesome! The theming and surrounding area for Pirates in Paris made it easily my favorite of the three I've ridden so far - great to see it expanded even farther!

I think what is going to be built will actually use this patent:

You would need to look at all the images associated with this patent to really understand it, but with this system, that boat is going to do some really cool things.
