    Hello. Will the pirates of the Caribbean be open in October ? Are they removing the ride ?

    Ahoy there, Leilani!

    Welcome to planDisney, where ye come seekin' adventure and salty old pirates, eh? I loved seeing your question because we're talking about my all time favorite attraction, Pirates of the Caribbean! It's the ride that made me fall in love with Disneyland Park as a child and embodies everything that I admire about Imagineering. It was just so magical when I would walk in from a hot Southern California day into a boat dock on the bayou at night. It sparked my imagination like nothing else!

    In response to your question, Disney has made no formal announcements about ride closures involving this attraction. I would recommend following the Disney Parks Blog to be among the first to hear the latest news about the Parks. You can also check the Daily Events Schedule when your visit date gets closer to check on any attractions that might be closed for refurbishment over your visit. This is one of the most popular and iconic attractions of Disneyland Park and I make sure to experience it at least once whenever I travel there.

    Many attractions will go through a temporary closure for refurbishment and can also suffer break-downs during a normal operating day. So it's never guaranteed that you'll get to experience a certain attraction. But for me, a day at Disneyland is better than a day anywhere else because there's always something to do when you're enjoying time at the Parks! 

    Fun Fact: Pirates of the Caribbean opened on March 18, 1967 and was the last Disneyland attraction supervised personally by Walt Disney

    Leilani, I hope that this helped to reassure you for your visit later this year. If you have any more questions for us, please feel free to write back anytime. You're always welcome at planDisney and we'd love to hear from you!

    Wishing You a Great, Big, Beautiful Tomorrow!
