Yesterday I posted the picture above and asked for guesses as to where it is located. This one turned out to be a tough one, but there were some people that got it right.
The fireplace is located in the queue line for Pirates of the Caribbean at Magic Kingdom. This is one of Disney’s classic rides and the last attraction the Walt oversaw before his death, so it’s a favorite among a lot of Disney fans.
The queue line, like all of Disney’s ride queue lines, is themed to the ride. The idea is that you are walking through an alleyway in a Spanish fortress before you get to the boat that will take you out. As I said, the queue line is themed well, so make sure to take a look around as you are making your way to the boats. Disney is great with details and a lot of times you notice something new each time you walk through the line.
The ride itself is pretty fun. Guests board a boat and make their way through different scenes. Of course, one of the scenes has the famous “A Pirate’s Life for Me” song. Another famous scene is The Dungeon, where jailed pirates are trying to coax a dog holding keys to the jail cell over to them so they can escape the fire. Other scenes include Pirates Grotto, The Fort, and Burning City. The Fort is a fun scene to float through, because it’s a battle scene and water shoots up all around the boat, as if a cannonball had been shot into the water near your boat. Also, keep a lookout for Captain Jack Sparrow, he pops up in different scenes throughout the ride.
This is a fun ride, but it is a dark ride and there is a drop during the ride. So if you have little ones that are scared of the dark or any kind of drops I would skip this one. However, if everyone in your party is good with dark rides and drops then definitely don’t skip this one. There’s a reason this classic Disney attraction is on many Disney fans’ must-do lists!
Thanks to everyone who played along this week and congratulations to those that knew where the fireplace was! We’ll play again next Wednesday!
Do you ride Pirates of the Caribbean every time you go to Disney World?
