When thinking of iconic Disney rides and attractions, a few may come to mind. Space Mountain, “it’s a small world” or even Peter Pan’s Flight. But to many, it doesn’t get any more iconic than Pirates of the Caribbean.

This fun attraction takes Guests on a journey through the life of a pirate, encountering all sorts of trouble along the way. Guests travel by boat through creepy caves, fly under cannon fire and come face to face with the legendary Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) multiple times.

However, on January 17, Pirates of the Caribbean at Disneyland Paris closed down for several weeks as the attraction underwent a refurbishment. The ride reopened to Guests about a week ago, but there are still some noticeable malfunctions occurring on the ride as we recently covered.

Now, a few Guests have also noticed an illusion-breaking effect on the ceiling of the show building for the ride, sharing an image on Twitter. See the full tweet from @air_magique below:

Since the refurbishment of Pirates of the Caribbean some of the lighting is really hitting the show buildings ceiling breaking the illusion of the night sky 🙈 (looks worse with long exposure than in real life but still…)

As you can see, some of the lighting is hitting the ceiling in a very unflattering way, breaking the illusion of the attraction. While a small error, Disney is always making an effort to put on a “good show” so we can only hope this issue gets sorted out quickly. 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.

At Disneyland Paris, lots of changes are coming to Walt Disney Studios and their Disneyland Park, with the 30th anniversary just weeks 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.

We have recently seen Disney’s Sequoia Lodge reopen while the Disneyland Paris Resort continues to undergo a refurbishment. On top of that, we have seen price increases for pins and stunning snowfalls! The Disneyland Paris app has also changed; read more on that here. Disney Stars on Parade is also back at Disneyland Park now that the holidays are over! Guests looking to skip the line can also purchase Premier Access which is a pay-per-ride system that allows Guests to skip the standby line.
