Heads up pirate fans – we’re happy to break the news that a new scalawag will land at Magic Kingdom Park in time for the May 20 opening of “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.”

The new pirate will be Angelica, who is portrayed by actress Penelope Cruz in the film. Angelica is the daughter of the legendary pirate captain, Blackbeard, and she’ll appear in Adventureland beginning April 15.

According to our partners in Entertainment, Angelica is “a world-famous pirate with a reputation for skill and cunning – rivaled only by that of Captain Jack. Fresh from her pursuit of the Fountain of Youth, Angelica, along with several loyal crewmen, will establish her headquarters adjacent to the Pirate’s League in search of willing pirates for future adventures.”


  • Will she be showing a filming of “On Stranger Tides” at The Magic Kingdom, like Disney did at Disneyland?

  • Hopefully she’ll be coming to Disneyland Anaheim soon

  • Will she be with Capt. Jack or by herself?

  • That is awesome. I looking forward to the new movie and the characters will be there before my trip in May. Yah!!!

    Question: Will there be a Meet and Greet for the two new pirates or will it be a part of a show?
