When it comes to Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort, there are some attractions that are just so magical and quintessential that they’ve been replicated in different parts of the world, giving Guests a chance to experience the ride.
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.
There’s the original in Disneyland Resort, the Walt Disney World version, a Tokyo Disneyland version, a Shanghai Disneyland version, and a Disneyland Paris version.
Unfortunately, the Disneyland Paris version of the Pirates of the Caribbean ride has just closed.
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.
