If you will be visiting WDW this summer – there will be no Pirates of the Caribbean. The attraction will close on May 11 and remain closed until the end of September, 2015. September 26 is said to be the date it will reopen to guests.
Pirates of the Caribbean has been experiencing frequent show and ride system issues that often make it necessary to close for short periods of time. There have been reports of animatronic issues, as well as audio problems. There have also been continuing issues with the boats taking on water and this issue will most likely be addressed as well.
