A Pirate’s Life for You

Gallivant inside a grand southern manor and board a small barge within a stone-wall fortress for a spellbinding adventure. Through a shadowy grotto, escape past the Blue Bayou restaurant before sliding down a small waterfall into the ghostly graveyard of fallen rapscallions—your gateway to the Golden Age of Piracy.

Behold boisterous buccaneers drunk on the spoils of plunderin’ during your approximate 15-minute cruise amid the New World. Sing along as windswept pirates serenade you with their classic anthem, “Yo Ho, Yo Ho (A Pirate’s Life for Me).” And even spy a sly Captain Jack Sparrow from the Pirates of the Caribbean film series along the way, as he secretly attempts to get his hands on the town’s treasures.

If Ye Be Seekin’ Adventure…
On your treacherous voyage through the 17th century, you’ll come face-to-face with the rowdy rogues who ruled many a seaport town under the watchful eye of “Jolly Roger.” Be on the look-out for:

Pirates Grotto
Home to Dead Man’s Cove and Hurricane Lagoon, this haunted realm recalls the struggles pirates endured on the open seas.

• The Fort
Navigate through a shadowy bay, where a foggy Caribbean fort and a striking 12-gun galleon—helmed by Captain Barbossa—are locked in battle.

• Town Square
Sail straight past a crowded marketplace of rambunctious scalawags, gleefully bidding in an auction for a bride.

• Burning City
Looters and buccaneers sing a song of jubilation as flames engulf a seaside town.

• The Dungeon
Trapped in a jail cell, freebooters attempt to lure a clever canine within reach to nab the prison keys he has in his mouth.

Dead men tell no tales, indeed!

New Stowaways Aboard the Classic Attraction
Recently updated, Pirates of the Caribbean now includes famous faces from the exciting film series it inspired. During your pillagin’ adventure, keep a sharp eye out for the likes of Captain Jack Sparrow, Captain Barbossa, Davy Jones and Blackbeard.

A Treasure for the Ages

Pirates of the Caribbean is considered by many to be one of the most spectacular attractions ever created for a theme park.

The attraction was originally conceived as a wax museum and a walk-through 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 Audio-Animatronics—Walt’s latest animation technology—was the most imaginative way to tell a rousing pirate story.

On April 19, 1967, Pirates of the Caribbean opened at Disneyland Park. Thanks to the many highly detailed scenes, lavish special effects and memorable characters, the attraction earned rave reviews and has remained a beloved classic, even spawning the blockbuster film series starring Johnny Depp.
