Disney World’s Pirates of the Caribbean to be Refurbished in Early 2018

disney world pirates of the Caribbean ride talking skullIt appears that Disney will be closing down their iconic Pirates of the Caribbean ride in Disney World’s Magic Kingdom for a little bit next year. According to the official website, ‘Pirates’ will be closed from February 26 to March 18, 2018, and reopening on March 19th.

We learned this summer that the ‘Pirates” story would be altered in the near future to replace the bride auction scene. One can easily connect the dots and assume that the change will be made in this  3-week closure.

Here is our list of Rides Closed at Disney World and Anticipated Reopen Dates for a full rundown of what else is on the horizon.

I am founder and editor of DisneyNews.us. My passion for all things Disney goes pretty far back to my first trip to Walt Disney World in the mid-80's. I have since returned to the magical place more than 20 times. I started this site when I came to the realization that I spent a significant portion of my day reading articles about Disney and watching Disney content with my 8-year old, so it made sense that I would start sharing some of what I read and see and building a little community around it. Other interests include 80's nostalgia, vintage toys, video games, LEGO, Star Wars and tech gadgets. Other sites include DMR and VideoGamesStats.com.
