Pirates of the Caribbean

Description from PassPorter's Disneyland Resort and Southern California Guidebook:

“Yo ho, yo ho!” Take a slow, dark cruise through a subterranean world of AudioAnimatronics pirates and the townsfolk they plunder. Your boat drifts past scene after riotous scene and fun special effects, including Audio-Animatronics of Captains Jack Sparrow and Barbossa. Lines can be long but generally move quickly. You aren’t likely to get wet, but it can happen, especially for larger groups seated in the boat's first row. Tip: the right-hand line is a bit faster. Walt Disney World fans should note that this is a better, longer version with two bigger dropsMust transfer from wheelchair; handheld captioning. 2018 Update: The scene that depicts women on the auction block is being replaced with a new scene that shows townspeople lined up to surrender their valuables when the ride closes for routine maintenance in 2018. The "redhead" will remain, but will become a rifle-slingin' pirate. Disneyland has also filed a permit to install 9,500 square feet of ceiling rock work inside Pirates of the Caribbean, so this scheduled refurbishment will include more than just changing out the Auction scene. Stay tuned for details!

A must every visit. Love the Disneyland version where you go through the blue bayou. Great ambience.

Best ride in Disneyland. For all Disney buffs, this is the last ride that Walt Disney worked on before his death. Urban legends have Walt frozen beneath this ride.

A must do for our family. BTW, this version is much better than the one at WDW.

I thought my daughter would love this ride, but she was scared of the dark, didn't like going down the waterfall and hated to get wet.

This is a great ride that holds a lot of memories for me. Even though I am older, I still love this ride and never miss it. I love the smell inside!

Great ride, must do. Has been update through the years to keep up with the characters from the movie franchise. Might get a bit wet, so be aware.
