Pirates of the Caribbean attraction, the Pirates of the Caribbean at Magic Kingdom.

Pirates of the Caribbean is considered one of the most spectacular attractions ever created for a Theme Park.

If you haven't heard about 'Pirates of the Caribbean', you've probably just arrived from another planet.

The Pirates of the Caribbean is the attraction that the incredibly popular 'Pirates of the Caribbean' movies are based on

Incidentally, now the attraction has become the attraction that is based on the movies.

Weird? Not at all, it was an already very famous and fun attraction!

However, it has now undergone changes to include characters from the Pirates of the Caribbean films.

Like Captain Jack Sparrow in various parts of the attraction for example.

The Pirates of the Caribbean attraction was originally made as a wax museum and a walking adventure.

But following the success of Walt Disney's Carousel of Progress at the 1964 New York World's Fair, Walt Disney and his team of Imagineers decided that the attraction should be more dynamic.

On March 18, 1967, the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction debuted at Disneyland Park.

What is the Pirates of the Caribbean Attraction like?

Thanks to the many highly detailed environments, beautiful effects and beautifully made animatronic characters, the attraction received excellent reviews and has remained a beloved classic ever since.

Due to the great demand it was in, the attraction opened in our beloved Magic Kingdom on December 15, 1973.

The imposing fortress at the end of Adventureland is home to the ride Pirates of the Caribbean.

In fact, it is very difficult not to see it, as shown in the photo below.

The line goes round and round in a dark underground cave that leads to the boat ride.

After a close encounter with Blackbeard and Davy Jones, you'll float through a cave heading for a quick, dark drop.

When your boat enters the main area of the attraction, you will find yourself in the middle of a battle with cannon fire passing by.

Captain Barbossa himself shouts orders from the pirate ship.

Keep an eye out for Captain Jack Sparrow.

He'll spawn in a barrel, peek from behind a dummy, and he'll appear on the ride as well, he's on top of a mountain of loot.

That's right, despite being the attraction that gave rise to the films. Disney includes several characters from the films in the attraction.

We have already shown this attraction in our Youtube channel for you to see even better what it is like inside.

Is it worth riding the Pirates attraction at Magic Kingdom?

Without a doubt! So far it is one of the attractions we like the most at Magic Kingdom.

Pretty much every time we go there I want to ride it.

Okay, she's much cooler for some specific group types, like:

People who like or have people in the group who like the Pirates theme
People who like Pirates of the Caribbean movies with Johnny Depp
People who have been to this attraction and have a sense of nostalgia
People who like the story of Walt Disney because the creation of Pirates of the Caribbean in Disneyland was inspected directly by our dear Walt
I fit all of the above, so it's a fantastic attraction for me!
