Tips and Trivia

When someone thinks of a ride at Disney World, chances are Pirates of the Caribbean is going to be one of the first two or three that they think about. It’s for a good reason. This beloved boat ride provides unique and entertaining visuals, mixed in with a bit of humor. While the ride was recently updated to include scenes and characters from the popular movie franchise, much of the initial charm of the ride remains. This is a must-experience ride just for its iconic nature to new guests to the park. Your mileage might vary for repeat visits, as it is not the most exciting ride out there. However, a trip to the Magic Kingdom is not complete without one boat ride. Yo ho!
