Pirates of the Caribbean is a classic attraction located at Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World. From squash buckling pirates to the buckets of rum to, of course, the iconic Jack Sparrow, Pirates of the Caribbean entertains hundreds of Guests every day.

Yesterday, however, Guests noticed that Jack may have had a bit too much rum, as at the end of the ride, the animatronic was malfunctioning to look like Jack Sparrow was spazzing.

One Disney Guest and member of Annual Passholders – Walt Disney World, Abby T., shared the following video (below) with Inside the Magic, which shows the Jack Sparrow animatronic spazzing uncontrollably.

As many of you know, Jack Sparrow is known for taking love to rum, and many think he may have indulged a bit too much yesterday afternoon!

Pirates of the Caribbean is considered to be a classic attraction at the Disney Parks. In case you have never had the chance to ride it, the official Disney World website describes this classic 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!
