Its long queues prove its preference. It is one of the best in Disney Land Park. The show and the characters are impressive and quite joyful.

I didn't think there was a theme song at Disney worse than Small World. I was wrong. This just gets BURNED into your head, which is too bad because the ride isn't so bad.

The storyline isn't really there -- I think they could add some narration to make it make more sense, but the ride is fine and the boats are easy in/easy out. You may get a little wet, so be prepared.

In truth I could have done with the 20 minutes I spent on this back (5 minute queue, 15 minute ride)! Queue was 5 minutes throughout our late August midweek stay, but I understand it is often worse than that.

I had read some opinions that this is the best ride in the park. Sorry, I don't get it! I'm guessing that there is a lot of nostalgia baked into those opinions, but as a first time visitor to any Disney what I found was a ride I didn't really understand, that seemed to be without a storyline or at least had a storyline I didn't pick up on, with very old basic animatronics and Jack Sparrow randomly dropped in on a couple of points.

Not for me. You might get a few splashes on the two small drops.

Wow, awesome how it goes thru the Blue Bayou and how long it was. I was blown away by this ride compared to Disney world. I would highly recommend!

Taking my kids to Disneyland after i had not been there myself for 17 years, and the first ride we had to go on was this one. Is it dated, yes. Who cares. It is a ride that spawned the movies and then the movies impacted the ride. As others mentioned, the women are no longer animatronically chased, the men are. And Captain Jack Sparrow is included now - not that the ride is really redone, but there are 3-4 animatronics where he shows up in the ride. There is still the great water drop at the beginning for people that have not been on before to get a bit of a surprise. Great ride when it is hot or when it is rainy (as you are inside). My son loved it as his first ride (and I knew there was so much more to show him). The line can get long so get to this one early or late in the day.

Still fun after over 50 years of riding the ride. COVID means fewer riders on the boats. Politically correctness is humorous, girls are no longer being chased, food rather than sex, just minor changes, all to keep the attraction timely.

Pirates of the Caribbean should be ridden by everyone visiting Disneyland. Ride is now old but they periodically update it (latest changes is adding Captain Jack Skelly). Ride is fun for all ages- no jolts, no significant drops just a fun journey.

As someone else said this is a good ride for the middle of a hot day as it is indoors and cool and lasts for 10 minutes or so. On non-busy days the wait for the ride is small (we had a wait of under 10 minutes).

For smaller children there is a battle scene with guns going off that might bother them. The ride is also in the dark for the most part which I suppose might bother some.

I’ve ridden Pirates at WDW on several occasions. I was so happy to be able to ride at DL recently. This is a classic ride. Unfortunately, this is not a fastpass attraction.

Very fun ride, we loved sailing through the battle scene with all the smoke and cannons going off. They’ve added an animatronic Captain Jack, so Johnny Dep is a part of the ride now ;) We also saw the Captain Jack character actor outside the ride posing for pictures with folks :)

You travel through scenery in a boat all the while being pulled along on a track. There's animatronic characters and scenery. Dark and quite tranquil. Dont remember there being any drops but if there was it was quite small. There might be a splash or two but you're not getting soaked on this one. As always the effects are pretty cool.
