Walt Disney World Resort is home to four theme parks, each filled with a variety of rides and attractions perfect for every family. One of the most iconic rides is Pirates of the Caribbean located inside Magic Kingdom.
Now, it looks as though this popular attraction will soon undergo construction.
According to a new permit filed by Disney, the theme park will be performing general construction work for the location of Pirates of the Caribbean inside Magic Kingdom.
It is important to keep in mind that general construction could mean a lot of things. Disney could have filed this permit to ensure that the attraction is in its best shape for Guests eager to board one of the pirate ships, including enhancing the ride track, ride vehicles, animatronics, etc.
Another possibility is that Disney may be getting ready to bring some of the EARidescent theming to this classic attraction for the upcoming 50th anniversary celebration, which will kick off on October 1. However, this is pure speculation and Disney has not confirmed that the EARidescent color scheme would be coming to Pirates of the Caribbean at this time.
It is also important to note that Pirates of the Caribbean is not listed on the refurbishment calendar for Magic Kingdom, and therefore, we suspect any construction work being done will be minor. Inside the Magic will continue to update you as we get information regarding Pirates of the Caribbean.
More on Pirates of the Caribbean
Walt Disney World describes this iconic attraction as:
Board a weathered barge for a treacherous voyage to the 17th century, when rowdy rogues and ruthless rapscallions ransacked Caribbean seaport towns. Sing along as pirates serenade you with their anthem, “Yo Ho, Yo Ho (A Pirate’s Life for Me).”
Sail past haunted Dead Man’s Cove. Navigate cannon fire between a Caribbean fort and a striking 12-gun galleon. Behold boisterous buccaneers drunk on the spoils of plunderin’ as flames engulf a seaside town.
Be sure to keep a spry eye out for Captain Jack Sparrow, from The Pirates of the Caribbean movies. Ye beware, mateys:
Dead men tell no tales!
