Beginning from today (April 1, 2017), Disney’s Port Orleans Resort - Riverside will no longer offer the Bayou Pirate Adventure Cruise. Guests that have reservations for the Bayou Pirate Adventure Cruise from April 1 through the beginning of September will be contacted in advance by the Walt Disney World Resort to make them aware of the closure of this experience and to give them an opportunity to choose an alternative pirate cruise option. All other recreation activities at the resort will remain the same.
Guests may still enjoy three pirate adventures that take place on the waterways of Walt Disney World Resort. Each excursion is kids-only and takes place daily (weather permitting) from 9:30-11:30 a.m. These include:
Disney’s Pirate Adventure – Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa
