"Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate's life for me!" That life has ended for the old version of the attraction at Disneyland Resort in California and Walt Disney World in Florida. Due to the success of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies, Disney is now including elements of the movies into the ride.
What will the star studded makeover bring? A new storyline based off of the two movies, both the first one (The Curse of the Black Pearl) and the upcoming sequel called Dead Man's Chest. Two new characters from the film, Captain Jack Sparrow and his nemesis Captain Barbosa, will be added as well.
Disneyland's version of the ride will hopefully open by June 24th, 2006. Walt Disney World's version will open up on July 7th, 2006, the same exact day of the release of the movie Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest.
