Disney has announced that the brand new Legend of Captain Jack Sparrow Experience will open at Disney's Hollywood Studios on December 6, 2012.
Disney describes this new walk-through attraction as, "Aspiring pirates will experience the story of Captain Jack Sparrow like never before to discover if they have what it takes to join his jolly crew. State-of-the-art technology brings the swashbuckling world of Captain Jack, from an eerie treasure cove to an epic ship-to-ship battle. "
We're also hearing that soft openings of the new attraction will begin in late November. A date we've heard tossed around is November 16th, but we wouldn't bet on it quite yet.
Disney's Hollywood Studios is going to test a new park opening procedure to help with crowds at park opening. Starting today, January 15, 2012 Disney's Hollywood Studios will open at 8:30am with the following attractions open: Toy Story Midway Mania, Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster, and Tower of Terror.
At 8:45am, all other attractions will open. Prior to their openings, guests can begin waiting in their queues.
