Dark ride

Opening Date:
Apr 15, 1983

Tokyo Disneyland's Pirates of the Caribbean is closely based on the original dark ride of the same name at California’s Disneyland, although it is somewhat shorter.

The bulk of the ride sees the boats floating past various scenes of carnage in which audio-animatronic pirates fight the forces housed in the fortress and pillage the attached town. Finally, they head down a drop into the eerie final section, which is home to a variety of doomed, skeletal pirates.

Tokyo Disneyland is perhaps Disney's most unusual "castle" park.

Takes the Best of DL and WDW's versions

This is a similar version of Pirates to the DL one with all of its extra scenes, though it isn't quite as long and doesn't have the chain lift during the ride. It isn't nearly as good as the DL version since that one is longer, better maintained, and just so iconic/historical. However, it is superior to the WDW version, which I'm actually a fan of. The extra scenes and usual amazing TDR maintenance make this a great version.

A superior experience

This classic Disney attraction in Adventureland is very close to the California original complete with a Blue Bayou Restaurant and New Orleans Square style theming (there is not actual land called New Orleans Square in Tokyo Disneyland, but this part of Adventureland is basically the same). The queues are usually not too bad and there is a nice indoor queue area anyway. Along with the original Disneyland, this ranks as the ultimate pirate adventure.
