Pirates of the Caribbean at Magic Kingdom Now Closed for Refurbishment

Pirates of the Caribbean at Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World Resort is now closed for refurbishment, so the attraction can receive a makeover of the iconic auction scene.

Previously announced over the summer, Disney is changing the attraction to be more politically correct.  According to Disney, you’ll discover that a familiar character is playing a new role joining the pirates ranks and helping the local townspeople “unload” their valuables at the Mercado auction. In the U.S., this famous redhead will appear in a similar scene at the Magic Kingdom Park and Disneyland park in 2018 following a previously scheduled refurbishment.

Pirates of the Caribbean is scheduled to be closed February 26 – March 18; reopening to guests on March 19, 2018.
