Every now and then, Disney fans will stumble across gold in Disneyland. A special character appearance, a brand new limited edition merch item (damn you tiki cups!), or hey, Johnny Depp dressed up as Jack Sparrow, and taking everyone by surprise by showing up during the Pirates ride!
It's not everyday that you come to Disneyland and see Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow in the pirates attraction surprising fans and having their reactions recorded lol. 😂 Due to the popularity of this video and comments, we can't respond but We give our consent to repost with credit to those of you asking. 📸 To everyone else asking, this wasn't a known event. It was a surprise and yes Johnny Depp really did dress up as Captain Jack Sparrow and was talking to guests. They were filming boats interacting with him and we are thinking it's new promo for the new Pirates of the Caribbean – Dead Men Tell No Tales film which is coming out May 26, 2017. This video was filmed Wednesday 4/26/17 °o° Thank you @evil_queen ❤️🙏🏻😘 #PiratesOfTheCaribbean #POTC #DeadmanTellNoTales #JohnnyDepp #JackSparrow #CaptainJackSparrow #Pirates #Disney #DisneyParks #DisneyGram #Disneyland #DisneylandResort #DL #DLR #HappiestPlaceOnEarth #DisneySide #GetHappier #DisneylandAnnualPass #AnnualPass #AP #DisneylandCastMember #CastMember #CM #TheDisneylandTwins
Anyone who has ridden the Pirates ride at Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California (me, at least twice on hot days, because that AC is everything), is familiar with the animatronic Jack Sparrow popping up in different sets throughout the ride.
Well, Johnny Depp, who is well known for also popping up randomly throughout different events, took the people who rode Pirates Wednesday night completely by surprise!
While some who were new to the ride, had no idea what was happening, there was of course some seasoned Disney veterans that knew this was no update and not robotic! It was Johnny Depp himself!
I’m sure the Pirates of the Caribbean ride cast members had a ball as well, and any one lucky enough to ride that night had a once-in-a-lifetime experience!
