Tokyo Disneyland's Pirates of the Caribbean is similar to the Disneyland original, with a few minor changes. First, the queue is inside Laffite's Manor, and there's only one drop into the grotto after the Blue Bayou. But the big difference is the ending. Rather than riding the lift back up to the load area, as in Anaheim, you exit after the final treasure scene, as in Orlando.

It blends the best of Disneyland and Magic Kingdom. It starts with the Blue Bayou and takes a single drop into the caves. The caves are a bit different, and slightly more "cozy" than Disneyland, but still give the same feeling. Show scene quality is outstanding with audio and fire effects that really stood out. The way it's most like Magic Kingdom is the boats have a separate unload dock and guests take a speed ramp back up to street level. I prefer this over the long uncomfortable ride up the lift at the end of Disneyland's version.
