If you’re a Disney Parks fan, you’re probably familiar with the fact that every ride and attraction on Disney property has its very own webpage. On these pages, Guests can find official ride descriptions, height requirements, photo galleries, and more. Beginning last night, however, most of the information on the page for Walt Disney World Resort’s Pirates of the Caribbean ride disappeared.
The page [below] — which is still currently mostly unavailable, except for basic information like the ride name and its location in Magic Kingdom Park — typically showcases multiple pictures of Pirates of the Caribbean, is completely devoid of any images and no longer features a description of the ride.
The search page [below] where Guests can view all of the rides at Disney World is also currently missing a featured image for Pirates of the Caribbean, and website visitors cannot click on the ride from this page.
Although Disney has not confirmed that updates are being made to the POTC webpage, that is likely what is going on. Disney World officials could be updating the photo gallery, the description, and other details about the ride.
It is important to note that Pirates of the Caribbean is not currently scheduled to undergo any refurbishments in the Park in the near future. As of the afternoon on August 25, 2021, the Pirates of the Caribbean page has returned.
More on Pirates of the Caribbean
The official description that was previously on the POTC page read:
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!
