Pirates of the Caribbean Faces Extended Downtime Unexpectedly Inside Magic Kingdom

Magic Kingdom guests looking to set sail on the seven seas may have to find an alternative voyage for the time being. Pirates of the Caribbean has been down for much of the past two days and the attraction is not expected to open for the remainder of the day.

Walt Disney World’s Pirates of the Caribbean attraction went down around 2:30 p.m. yesterday afternoon and has largely remained down since, with the exception of a brief half-hour window earlier this afternoon. In a pop-up message within the MyDisneyExperience mobile app, Magic Kingdom President Melissa Valiquette apologized to guests for the extended downtime. The pop-up message reads:

Pardon The Inconvenience

On behalf of the entire team at Magic
Kingdom Park, I’d like to apologize that
Pirates of the Caribbean is currently
unavailable today. Our Cast Members
have been working diligently to get the
attraction up and running again, and
we are sorry you are not able to
experience this attraction on your visit.
I hope you will enjoy some of our other
attractions during your experience in
the park today.

Melissa Valiquette
Vice President, Magic Kingdom Park

While guests seemed to have avoided any unfavorable experiences on the Walt Disney World attraction this week, Disneyland guests could not say the same last month when their Pirates of the Caribbean boat took on water and began to sink. True pirates may want to pillage for this Pirates of the Caribbean dig kit we found at Plaza del Sol Caribe Bazaar in Magic Kingdom.

It is unknown when Pirates of the Caribbean will reopen, but guests are encouraged to check the MyDisneyExperience app for the latest information on this and all attractions throughout Walt Disney World. Be sure to follow WDWNT for the latest updates.
