The Disney Park fan-favorite “Pirates of the Caribbean” is reportedly not doing very well per the latest Guests reports.
Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort are home to some incredible attractions. From “it’s a small world” and “Jungle Cruise” at Magic Kingdom Park to “Twilight Zone Tower of Terror” at Disney’s Hollywood Studios and “DINOSAUR” at Animal Kingdom Park at Walt Disney World and “The Haunted Mansion” and “Indiana Jones Adventure” at Disneyland Park, the Disney Parks are known for the incredible Disney experience they give to Guests.
But recently, a lot of these rides have been in the news, and for not the best reasons.
Last week, we reported that the “Pirates of the Caribbean” ride malfunctioned, and Guests had to be evacuated from the boats.
And now, another Disney Guest who recently visited the Disney Park took to Twitter to share his thoughts on the ride. Spoiler alert: it’s not doing well, according to the Guest.
Check out @hastin’s Tweet:
Disneyland Pirates is in really rough shape. Like at no time is Pirates perfect, but most of the "talking" AAs aren't moving there lips, and so many little gags (shooting guns, torch "flames", the octopus, the cats) aren't working.
Reminds me of Indy right now too.

The Guest is a Magic Key holder who visits Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure regularly. In the thread, he went on to add,
It’s clear that Disney is focused on safety over show (no more T. Irby mistakes from 15 years ago), but it’s sad to see it in this state. Could be staffing issues, budgets, who knows. But it doesn’t feel like they are skimping on safety ever again.
Another user, @jvr1031, shared, “I was there today, there were 2 good [things]. The crab is finally back in the first scene. And the chicken turn table is running. The rest, well, let’s not talk about it. The ride was down that long & they couldn’t even fix the turntables?”
Seeing these beloved rides in less than stellar shape is never fun for fans who have also recently expressed similar worries about the “it’s a small world” attraction.
While Disney hasn’t made an official comment about these reports from Guests, here’s looking to some of these alleged issues getting fixed sooner rather than later.
