The attraction, guarded by the Caribbean watchtower Torre del Sol, is housed in a golden Spanish fort called Castillo Del Morro, inspired by Castillo de San Felipe del Morro in the Old San Juan in San Juan.
Inside, the Blue Bayou has been replaced by Pirate's Cove and into a short grotto with Blackbeard, mermaids swimming in the water and singing their melody, skeletons of dead pirates and Mermaids, the hurricane lagoon, and an echoing "Dead men tell no tales". There is no treasure-room sequence as found in other parks. Following the plunge down one waterfall (going underneath the Walt Disney World Railroad tracks) to get to the rest of the attraction. The remainder of the ride resembles those in Tokyo and in California. Unlike in California, however, riders do not return to ground level in their boat; instead, they exit the boat immediately after the "Jack Sparrow in the treasure-room" scene, then take a speed ramp up to the ground-floor (going back underneath the Walt Disney World Railroad tracks) gift shop to get back into Adventureland. The Florida version also omits the scene past the powder room with the intoxicated pirates firing cannons.
The exterior of the attraction changed slightly during the 2006 modifications. Changes included the removal of the barker bird and original attraction sign. A new sign was placed on the outside corner of the fort facing toward the entrance of Adventureland. The design of the new sign is a ship's mast with the attraction name written in its black sails, and a skeleton of a pirate up in its crow's nest. The barker bird was eventually moved to the Pirates of the Caribbean section of the World of Disney store at Disney Springs.
Set sail on a swashbuckling voyage to a long-forgotten time and place when pirates and privateers ruled the seas.
