This week, the Disney Parks Blog announced the opening of a new Pirates of the Caribbean attraction at Disney’s Hollywood Studios park in Orlando’s Walt Disney World.

 

“The Legend of Captain Jack Sparrow” will feature the story of everyone’s favorite ne’er-do-well buccaneer Jack Sparrow, putting guests seemingly right on decks.
 

From the Blog:
 

According to Jason Roberts, show producer for Walt Disney Imagineering, “This is going to be an immersive experience. We’ll really delve into the story of Captain Jack Sparrow and put our guests in the middle of it all in new and exciting ways. Story is always the most important thing for us at Walt Disney Imagineering, but we’re always looking at new ways to tell the story that our guests have never seen before. In this attraction, we’ll let you walk in the footsteps of Jack Sparrow. It’s not ‘the making of,’ not ‘behind the scenes’ … it is really a first-person experience. We worked with the archives as well as the filmmakers while they were shooting the last movie. And as a fan, I just loved sitting through those films again and again, going through all the details and leveraging them for this new experience. It’s really been a blast.”

 

According to sources, this new experience will be housed in the “Soundstage 4″ building which also was the home to the “Honey, I Shrunk the Kids” attraction, “Journey to Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe” and set pieces from the “The Haunted Mansion” and “101 Dalmations” films.
 

The opening date of this amazing experience will be announced later this year.  Keep To The Code will be there to keep you informed!
