Description And Comments
A walkthrough, interactive attraction that takes guests through pirate adventures including a confrontation with skeleton pirates, singing mermaids, and a summoning of the squid-like Kraken. Virtually all of the presentation takes place in a room designed like a pirate's cave lair. Animatronic figures and other props are placed around the room and are used at various points during the show. A talking skull, recognizable from the Magic Kingdom's Pirates of the Caribbean attraction, serves as a narrator for each scene. Finally, an impressive holographic Jack Sparrow takes guests through a pirate oath, cementing their commitment to kidnapping, ransacking and not-giving-a-hoot-ing.
That being said, it's difficult to see who Disney thinks is the target audience for this attraction. For one thing, guests are instructed at various points to chant, roar, and stomp their feet in order to vanquish each threat, as if the entire audience were three-year olds taking part in a Dora the Explorer Pirates of the Caribbean episode. But the skeletons, monsters and shooting are scary enough to frighten many small children, so it's not clear for whom the attraction is designed. If you can ignore the juvenile dialog, however, the holographic Jack Sparrow and Johnny Depp's new scene are worth the few minutes you'll spend here.
Because it's next to Toy Story Mania, Jack Sparrow tends to draw guests who have either just finished riding or who have balked at getting in Toy Story's long line. If the wait for Sparrow is more than 20 minutes, try later in the day.
