Wait, those are not the right lyrics to the infamous Pirates of the Caribbean attraction, are they? Well, it seems that the mismatched lyrics also describe the technical issues that are currently happening aboard the Jack Sparrow attraction. Pirates of the Caribbean is a ride that Disney fans love. It can be found across the globe at multiple Disney Parks, with no two attractions exactly alike. Pirates of the Caribbean is a very beloved attraction for many because even if you are not riding Disneyland’s version, Disney fans know that the attraction’s conception was thanks to none other than Walt Disney himself! Plus, with the Johnny Depp-led franchise entering the IP of the attraction, it has never been more popular!

In Disneyland Paris today, at Disneyland Park, the projection screen seemed to be showing a very different image than what Guests may be used to! While on the lift hill, Guests are not used to seeing a broken image being projected onto the fog, but that is the case today! DLP Report (@DLPReport) shared the video of what looks like a finished VHS spinning on a TV screen in the early 90s!

The Pirates of the Caribbean lift hill video is all of us this morning

We hope that Cast Members are soon able to correct this issue as it does pull away from the immersion of the attraction. Or, at least shut off the projection for now, as it seems that being in the dark would be better suited for the ride than a colorful screen such as this.

Disneyland Paris describes the attraction as: 

A Pirate’s Life with Added Arrrrrrrrgh!
Man the decks and hoist the rigging, because from 24th July 2017 Captain Jack Sparrow, Captain Barbossa, a new female hero and and a crew of notorious buccaneers are breathing new life into one of our most famous attractions, Pirates of the Caribbean.

Round up your little rapscallions, escape to a moonlit lagoon, board your vessel and set sail on a refreshed voyage through a fabled age. Musket fire and explosions fill the air as you join Captain Jack Sparrow on his clumsy quest to unearth his hidden treasure. A toast with a skeletal fallen foe awaits. But watch out, as a vengeful Captain Barbossa confronts those who betrayed him, the moonlight transforming him into a terrifying zombie before your very eyes.

Behold boisterous buccaneers merry on Nelson’s Folly and the spoils of plunderin’ during a frantic cruise through the Old World. And sing along as windswept pirates serenade you with the legendary, ‘Yo Ho, Yo Ho (A Pirate’s Life for Me)’.

Welcome to a new Golden Age of Piracy, me hearties. Arrr!

At Disneyland Paris, lots of changes are coming to Walt Disney Studios and their Disneyland Park, with the 30th anniversary just months away. Walt Disney Studios is adding a massive addition that will include Star Wars, Marvel, and Frozen, as well as their very own Avengers Campus, which will be the first section to open in the Park. One of the biggest changes that we have seen is on Sleeping Beauty Castle, which was covered by a box facade for months. Recently, Disney began to uncover the castle to reveal a stunning, magical masterpiece.

At the moment, Disneyland Paris does not expect to shut down, despite rumors noting that it is a possibility.
