Being Disney fans, we all know that Disney attractions are some of the best experiences out there in the theme park world. Sure, while Universal may have rides like Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure and Jurassic World VelicoCoaster, Disney also has quite jaw-dropping attractions as well.

Avatar Flight of Passage and Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance are both great examples of the high-tech features and elements Disney has been implementing in its newer rides, at least at its American Parks.

Unfortunately, closures and refurbishments are just something theme park enthusiasts have to get used to. From new rides like Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind to classic attractions like Haunted Mansion, it’s always good when a ride can shut down and get the care it needs.

We just saw this with Disneyland’s version of Pirates of the Caribbean, which underwent a lengthy refurbishment earlier this year, and now, another version of this iconic ride is now closed.

We recently reported on all the closures slated at the Tokyo Disney Resort from now until next March, and unfortunately, Pirates of the Caribbean is one of the rides going offline. Pirates of the Caribbean closed today, September 5, 2022, and will not open until April 7, 2023, according to the official calendar.

This closure comes just ahead of the ride’s eventual permanent closure next year, which is a small part of the massive reworking of the Park’s Tomorrowland area. Now, the Tokyo Disney Resort has posted what exactly will be closed for the upcoming months at both Tokyo Disneyland and DisneySea, and we’ve compiled all of them down below.

The Tokyo Disney Resort in Urayasu, Chiba opened as Tokyo Disneyland in 1983 and was the very first Disney theme Park outside of the United States. Eventually, the Resort grew and became so popular that a second gate, Tokyo DisneySea was added. To many, Tokyo Disney is a perfect Resort and the crown jewel of the vast array of Disney Parks across the world.
