    Pirates of the Carribean

    Hi, I as a big Pirates of the Carribean fan from Disneyland I had a question about the one in Tokyo. I know that the Blue Bayou is there but how does it compare to the one in Disneyland. Also is the scene after you go down the first drop with the skeletons and the treasure their along with the scene after the second drop with the purple and teal rock room? Thanks.

    The Blue Bayou scene is pratically identical, as are the caverns after the first (and only) drop in Tokyo Disneyland's version. Everything from lighting and now music are the same.

    Hunzilla, the TDL version is identical to DL up until the first drop. However, there is only one drop at TDL... and then you are in a cave where the ceiling is much lower than DL's. In the current version, once you go down the waterfall, you come upon the beating heart treasure chest from the POTC movie, turn right and go into similar scenes with a dead Pirate with sword stuck in him...waterfalls on the leftside, then the storm sequnce with skelleton steering the wheel... then on to some of the same cave scenes we see at DL... before emerging into the battle scene. There is no going up the waterfall at the end like in CA.

    Do the boats go "up the waterfall" after you unload, like the WDW version?

    Yes, but like WDW, this is done after the boats have disappeared backstage, out of sight of guests.

    When we went to TDL Pirates was closed because they were adding Jack Sparrow and the like. How did the changes go? Are the basically the same as Disneyland's version? Is there any indication as to how Japanese guests have responded to the changes?

    You can see the Response in the gift shop, around 90% of it is now Jack Sparrow.

    But as for wait times due to the changes, they're minimal.

    Re: Pirates of the Carribean

    Well.. when the attraction re-opened, the wait was up to 45-60 mins. Now, on average 10 mins on non-holiday periods. But the lower wait time it's not because of the lack of interest, but instead... because there is no Fastpass available, although some form of surprise Fastpass has been done for POTC. My guess is some guest may get one of those from other FP attraction machines. But I am guessing here...

    The Pirates of the Carribean movies are very popular in Japan, and the movie overlay has gone down well. I remember being sat in a boat full of young Japanese girls screaming and pointing they cell phones in the direction of Jack Sparrow.
