    This ride requires you transfer to a manual wheelchair if you use an ECV so be sure to go with a companion if you can't push yourself. If it is a walk on and you can do it just walk

    Arrr! One of the coolest rides ever! The Jack Sparrows look so real, it's quite scary. PS, TURN OFF YOUR FLASH WHEN TAKING PHOTOS. AND JUST SHUT UP DURING THE RIDE. JUST SHUT UP. Let the pirates sing.

    They switched Davy Jones with Blackbeard for the new movie, and it's fun to look for the hiding Jack Sparrow throughout the ride. Make sure you sit in the front if possible, easier to hear everything.

    Watch out for the Octopus that comes out on the right hand side of the boat in the large open water room. You will get wet when he splashes his tentacles!

    My husband and I took our 2 year old on it and she enjoyed it as well. There is a dip on the ride that we weren't aware of so I think there should be a warning when you have little ones.

    My fav ride! Been coming to it for over 15 years! Love the renovations & addition of Jack Sparrow. If you are taking pics - turn *off* your flash! :)

    It was really neat to see! They characters movement was pretty cool! I love the fog machine creating the waterfall effect as the boat goes through

    Warning! If your boat is weighted unevenly and you're on the side that's being weighed down in the front then prepare to get wet! Never ever gotten wet before on this ride, but this time I was SOAKED!

    This highly demanded attraction from Disneyland almost didn't make it to Disney World. Though this may not be as good as the DL version, it is still one of the best themed areas in Adventureland. Read more

    A family favorite. Appropriate for kids of all ages. There is one small drop along the way. You may get slightly splashed, but not too wet.

    A great ride and queue for a break from the heat! However, some young children may find the beginning scenes with the skeleton and cannons a little intense.

    An all time classic and popular but the line never seemed very long. Liked to finish my magic kingdom experience with "pirates" so to leave with a "dead men tell no tales" feeling.

    People, please STOP using flash cameras! Be considerate of others and just enjoy the ride instead of taking mediocre pictures and ruining the ride for others. Thanks!

    A great ride for people of all ages (especially those who have seen the movies)! Be advised, there's some slightly "rough waters" at the very beginning.

    Great ride for the whole family! Caution: you get far wetter on this ride than I remembered!

    Fortunately, the recent additions of Jack Sparrow were done sparingly and tastefully. The ride is still as I remember it as a child.

    My favorite ride in my favorite park. Please no flash photography, it spoils the ride.

    If you're really particular about views, try the left side of the boat where the "action" predominately happens.

    The new mermaid song in the beginning is super creepy. I love this ride, but I still get freaked out during the beginning of it.

    While exiting the ride via the gift shop, watch for sugar buzzed runaway toddlers with toy swords. Your groin will be most grateful.

    A Disney classic! One of the most enjoyable ride in the park, however you may get a little wet.

    Great ride, especially with the Jack Sparrow upgrades. Too bad that its prone to break downs.

    Great ride. I have loved it since the first time I rode it on my honeymoon 26 years ago. It is a very amusing ride.

    Flash photography is frowned upon for two reasons: it blinds fellow ride goers and results in poor quality photos. If you want to take pictures, be considerate and shut your flash off!

    My favorite attraction in all of Disney World. A must see for all Pirates fans.
  • Kristine R.
    Yo ho, yo ho! Find Captain Jack Sparrow hiding throughout the ride! Water ride (log flume) in the dark. Great animatronics. FastPass+ recommended.

    Classic ride - captain jack sparrow looks scarily like Johnny Depp. Sit on left if you want to get a little wet

    Great ride that spawned a series of great movies. Usually, it is the other way around.

    Same old pirate robots from the old ride -like 20 years ago- converted on "Pirates of The Caribbean... Nice ride to grab some air conditioning though.
  • Kristen H.
    The restroom here is one of the best in the Magic Kingdom! Look for it to the left as you're exiting into the gift shop.

    There is a special place in hell for anyone who takes flash pictures on this ride. Don't do it because it ruins the experience for anyone around you.

    They recently spruced up this ride so if you've ridden it in the past, give it another go.

    When Jack Sparrow is wearing a hat, it's not a robot - it's the real Johnny Depp! He does that when he comes here with his family!!!!!

    These new boats take on a lot of water. Beware if you sit in the front. It gets a bit splashy.

    This is the Clock Tower outside Pirates of the Carribean with the Magic Window for the Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom.

    Would never recommend this for a child 3-7 if they don't like rides or hack sparrow a lot. Terrified the 5 year old and she liked most of the other stuff we went on. Also the drop was scary for her.
  • Clarissa M.
    Ride it multiple times. There is so much to see. You will notice different things each time.
  • Wai Kit L.

    Agree with the comment. Keep the dark and no flash. Good ride, but not worth to spend a fast pass or queue 1 hour for it.

    If you use your flash in this or any dark ride, I hope you know that you are super annoying and everyone else on the ride is unimpressed.

    If it says 10 minute wait that means you'll basically walk onto ride so go for it!

    If you're going to bid on a wench, make sure you avoid the third one from the right. She is unsavory.

    Great ride, go if the line is 50min or less, more than this, doesn't worth the time..
