    Is pirates of the Caribbean ride open at magic kingdom

    Ahoy, Jessica!

    Welcome to planDisney and thanks for sailing in with an excellent Walt Disney World Resort vacation planning question. Shiver me timbers... it looks like you'll be arriving at The Most Magical Place on Earth tomorrow! It's almost time to batten down the hatches and set out on your exciting adventure. I'd be happy to help you prepare for a swashbuckling day at Magic Kingdom Park!

    Jessica, Pirates of the Caribbean is one of my all-time favorite Walt Disney World Resort attractions. Since there's no height requirement for this classic, catchy experience, the entire family can embark on a thrilling voyage to a land of pilfering, plundering pirates! I'm happy to share that, at the time of writing, Pirates of the Caribbean is open and welcoming Guests in Adventureland, Jessica. I was able to confirm this by checking in the My Disney Experience mobile app and verifying that the ride was displaying a wait time. If you haven't already, I recommend downloading this handy app for your day in the theme park! You'll be able to quickly check attraction queue wait times, book Lightning Lane entry selections via Disney Genie+ service, and more.

    Since your visit coincides with the holiday season at the Walt Disney World Resort, you're going to get a dose of "holly jolly" with your Jolly Roger. Though Pirates of the Caribbean doesn't get a festive seasonal overlay, its nearby neighbor Jungle Cruise is transformed into Jingle Cruise this time each year! Once you and your hearties have returned from your high-seas adventure, I encourage you to make your way to Jingle Cruise for some sensational seasonal skipper shenanigans!

    Jessica, I hope you've found this information helpful as you chart your course for your day at Magic Kingdom Park. You're always welcome to anchor here at planDisney again with any additional questions you might have! We'll be there to help you quicker than you can say "Dead men tell no tales!"

    Yo Ho, a pirate's life for me,
