    Oh wow. But what about when the cannon blasts splash everyone? Keep your arms inside of the boat and keep your mouth and eyes closed during the canon blasts 😬

    What about the drops where everyone gets wet? On your face, in your eyes and nose, in your mouth. Come on the water is safe. 100’s of trips on it, never got sick nor has anyone I know. This is a false story. The smell alone would be unbearable if this was the case.

    I was thinking the exact same thing! What about the splashes from the canon blasts?!

  4. Just another way of trying to besmirch Johnny Depp. Oh yeah, nobody ride the ride. If this were true, Disney would have been rocked with lawsuits. Way to go woke Disney, kick the man who made you fortunes. Wonder what executive is doing the Heard?

  5. This is patently false. The water may not be purified for drinking, but it is entirely safe. The ride water on Pirates is treated with bromine, a powerful anti-viral and anti-bacterial element that is used to keep things clean. It is more expensive than the more commonly used chlorine you find in pools and is also the reason the ride has that signature smell.

      This is another example of irresponsible reporting and editing. It’s gotten beyond tiresome.

      I think I’ll start forwarding articles like this to Disney’s legal department.

    Disney chlorinates the water with bromine. Infection would be highly unlikely.
