New Orleans Square hosts two classic (and might
I say among the best) Disney attractions. They Pirates of the Caribbean
and the Haunted Mansion.
Pirates ranks up there as one of the best Disney
attractions of all time on my list. I think it combines all of what
is unique and interesting with Disney attractions. It has a compelling
story, a great soundtrack, a thrilling ride, a visually detailed
experience, a unique theme, and a little bit of humor. I also think
that the Disneyland version is better than the WDW version. It is
longer and in my opinion more detailed. In May 2006 Pirates was enhanced with new special effects and a couple new Pirates. Captain Jack Sparrow now appears in three scenes and Barbosa appears on the Wicked Wench. Davy Jones also makes an appearance. Overall the new additions were a great plus for the attraction. The new lighting, sound system, and score elements are great!!
Also NOS plays host to the center viewing location
for Fantasmic (check out our Fantasmic page for more information
on this not to be missed show).
