The Legend of Captain Jack Sparrow

If you’ve ever wondered what it was like to walk in the footsteps of Disney’s ® most famous pirate, Captain Jack Sparrow, you’ll get your chance to find out on Dec. 6 with the new attraction, The Legend of Captain Jack Sparrow at Disney’s Hollywood Studios ®.

The attraction will immerse guests in the world of the four Pirates of the Caribbean films, Walt Disney Imagineering show producer Jason Roberts said. "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," Roberts said.

"Story is always the most important thing for us at Walt Disney Imagineering," Roberts continued, "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.”

The new attraction blends favorite film moments with new technologies that will transport riders to the scurvy world of pirates. The walk-through attraction begins in an eerie grotto where you’ll come face-to-face with a mysterious pirate skull, who asks you are ready to join the legendary Captain Jack Sparrow. You’ll then set sail on a swashbuckling adventure and face all of the peril’s of a pirate’s life as some of the famous moments from the Pirates of the Caribbean film series come to life before your very eyes! According to Imagineering Show Producer Jason Roberts, the new attraction is all a part of bringing new light to one of Disney’s ® most popular films.

The Legend of Captain Jack Sparrow is just the latest in a slew of new and refurbished rides and attractions that will debut this fall at Walt Disney World ® including an updated Test Track at Epcot ® and a renovated Kilimanjaro Safaris ride at Animal Kingdom ®. But perhaps the biggest change coming this fall is the new Fantasyland expansion at Magic Kingdom ®, which also debuts on Dec. 6.
