The Pirates of the Caribbean ride is one of Walt Disney Imagineering’s best accomplishments!  This attraction is well-beloved, from Disneyland Resort to Walt Disney World to Disney Parks in other countries.

However, it seems that something is going on with Magic Kingdom’s version of the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction.

Usually, when attractions go down with little notice in Walt Disney World, they’re only temporary closures. In most cases, Guests can expect ‘Temporarily Unavailable’ attractions to be up and running again soon.

However, according to the Walt Disney World mobile app, Pirates of the Caribbean is still listed as ‘Temporarily Unavailable.’

This is leading many Guests to ask: what’s going on with Pirates of the Caribbean?

So, unfortunately, Disney has not released any statement or announcement regarding the attraction’s closure, so we can only speculate about the ride’s status.

Fortunately, however, we can take comfort in knowing that this attraction is decades old and is most likely undergoing common technical difficulties. We can also take comfort in a lack of announcement from Disney, as it further cements that this closure is truly temporary.

Fret not, fans of Pirates of the Caribbean! Soon enough, this attraction will likely re-open to delight Guests again.
