Folks riding Disneyland‘s Pirates of the Caribbean had to take a double take after one of the Animatronic pirates turned out to be the real Johnny Depp.

Depp, 53, showed up on the timelessly popular ride dressed as, you guessed it, Captain Jack Sparrow.


It went down Wednesday in Anaheim. When the boats cruised into a grotto, Depp was there among the animatronics … in full character. You hear the people on the ride totally lose it. The new ‘Pirates’ flick drops at the end of May, so it’s a pretty clever promo. No word if he’ll be making more surprise appearances, but yo ho, Johnny, yo ho! h/t tmz
