One of Disneyland Paris’ most famous attractions, Pirates of the Caribbean, was officially reopened in late July.

The blockbuster Pirates of the Caribbean films provided the inspiration for the Imagineering team to come up with new twists and turns in the story and a chance to introduce new characters and magic to this classic attraction.

Visitors to the resort can now discover new surprises as well as a band of new buccaneers.

The first surprise is the presence of Jack Sparrow himself in the adventure. Indeed, he is present in two scenes – in one he hides in a barrel behind a pirate who holds the famous treasure map and in the other he sits triumphantly in an elaborately carved chair among the rich mounds of gold and jewels that he has found.

Captain Barbossa, from the popular films, also appears in the attraction for the first time, joining a skeletal crew in a scene unique to Disneyland Paris.

Additionally, ghostly visages of Davy Jones and Blackbeard warn that “dead men DO tell tales!”

Throughout the attraction, the show has been enhanced with new Audio-Animatronics figures, costumes, special effects, lighting and sound, including some of the now-classic musical themes from the films. The well-known A Pirates Life for Me! song continues to underscore the attraction.

Disneyland Paris guests will also discover some changes to the Blue Lagoon Restaurant, re-opened as Captain Jack’s. The interior of the eatery has been re-themed and it has been staffed with a fun-loving band of pirates.
