For fans of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, a highlight of any visit to the Magic Kingdom was watching Jack Sparrow go toe-to-toe with little swashbucklers during his pirate tutorial. During this interactive stage show, Jack and his first mates would help young guests hone their pirate skills and even make participants members of his honorary pirate crew. However, we here at Chip and Co. are sad to report that (according to a piece appearing at WDW Magic website) Disney World will be discontinuing Captain Jack Sparrow’s Pirate Tutorial. As of now we only see it on the Disney World schedule until October 6th which seems to confirm this news.
The Pirate Tutorial was similar to Jedi Training Academy (without the pandemonium) as guests participated in a series of fun tasks designed to help them unleash their inner pirate. Participants had an opportunity to square off against Jack himself before posing for photos and getting a special souvenir for taking part in the fun.
The cancellation of this interactive Adventureland offering is just one of a few cuts Walt Disney World is making to curb costs in 2018. Pirate fans can still indulge in some swashbuckling fun at the Pirates of the Caribbean ride or enjoy a pirate makeover at the neighboring Pirate’s League.
Readers are encouraged to keep following along with Chip and Co. for the latest in Disney World news and updates.
