If you’re looking forward to the new adventures of Captain Jack Sparrow in “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides,” then you won’t want to miss the exciting new pirate experience coming to Disneyland park. Beginning March 25, you can join Jack and a crew of rowdy pirates for a Disneyland park-exclusive, extended 3D film sequence – a sneak peek of the new movie (opening May 20).

It’ll be “all hands on deck” as park guests take on the role of pirates and enter Festival Arena to “set sail” for high adventure with Captain Jack and many of the new Pirate stars in the unique, immersive 3D film experience, featuring a scene from the new movie. Look for “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides – Sneak Peek” on weekend nights from March 25 to May 30, and seven nights a week from April 15 through May 1.

Check the Disneyland park Show Times Guide for nightly sailing times, and get ready for a rollicking good time filled with action, suspense and laughter.

It’s fun for the whole family – and it’s only at Disneyland park!

  • How lucky are Disneyland fans!?! Wish we had something like this at WDW. Can’t wait to hear more about it when people start going! Ashley from Mama of All Trades

  • Carol, looks like you’ll be a week too late. There’s a “special event” message posted on the Park Hours calendar for May 7th however. That looks to be the date of said “premiere”. (it will probably won’t be officially posted though) It was exactly that date 4 years ago for POTC: At World’s End.

  • Cool, I’ll be there Friday to check it out! Will there be dancing like at ElecTRONica? Pirates like to shake their ‘booty’:)

  • Hello. My family and I will be in Disneyland on from Friday, May 13 to Monday, May 16. I just wanted to be sure that we will be able to see the preview on that date. Nothing is posted on the Disneyland Parks calender yet for those dates.

    Thank you.

  • Michele,
    I would very much like to come out and attend the premiere of POTC 4. Have heard in the past if you made a donation to the Make A Wish foundation that you could get a ticket to get in and see it. I would like to do that, but need to know when the event is so I may make travel plans and how I would go about making to donation and getting the ticket. I am an avid player of the Pirates of the Caribbean online game. Any information you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

  • Thanks Fred

  • Andrea–
    I have a feeling that it will be Jack Sparrow the character, and not Johnny Depp.
