A New "Pirates of the Caribbean" Attraction at Walt Disney World

Over the past couple weeks there have been rumors and rumblings about a new pirate-themed attraction coming to Walt Disney World.  Well, they have officially confirmed that The Legend of Captain Jack Sparrow will be opening this fall at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

Details are slowly coming out, but it sounds like the attraction will be some kind of virtual world type of ride.  It will give visitors to the park a chance to become immersed in the world of the four “Pirates of the Caribbean” films.

According to Walt Disney Imagineering, “This is going to be an immersive experience.  We’ll really delve into the story of Captain Jack Sparrow and put our guests in the middle of it all in new and exciting ways.  Story is always the most important thing for us at Walt Disney Imagineering, but we’re always looking at new ways to tell the story that our guests have never seen before.  In this attraction, we’ll let you walk in the footsteps of Jack Sparrow.  It’s not ‘the making of,’ not ‘behind the scenes’ … it is really a first-person experience.  We worked with the archives as well as the filmmakers while they were shooting the last movie.  And as a fan, I just loved sitting through those films again and again, going through all the details and leveraging them for this new experience. It’s really been a blast.”

As more updates on this project become available I'll post them here.
