Examples include “it’s a small world,” the Haunted Mansion, Big Thunder Mountain, and Pirates of the Caribbean, each of which began in Disneyland Resort and have since been replicated in Disney World’s Magic Kingdom.

However, the Pirates of the Caribbean ride is genuinely in a league of its own, as it has been replicated in nearly every Disney Resort.

According to the official website, Disneyland Paris’s Pirates of the Caribbean attraction closed for refurbishments on June 4, meaning that Guests visiting the Disney Park will be unable to experience this classic ride for the time being.

Refurbishments, especially of rides that are so beloved, can be a super frustrating aspect of maintaining a theme park. After all, Guests cannot experience the classic ride if it’s closed for refurbishment!

But unfortunately, it’s a vital aspect of keeping an attraction in good health to ensure it stays up and running for as long as possible.

On the bright side, the refurbishment is relatively short, as the Disney ride will reopen at the end of the month on June 30.
