Your Moment of Disney Bliss is a series bringing you a Disney attraction, show or parade from around the world each day to keep you connected to the parks we all love.

Today is March 18, 2020. To kick off Moment of Disney Bliss we’re presenting a full ride-through of Disneyland’s Pirates of the Caribbean from June 2018. Pirates of the Caribbean had just come up from a refurbishment that had its auction scene being completely redone.
