Long before the hit film franchise featuring Captain Jack Sparrow, Pirates of the Caribbean was a world famous attraction at Disneyland. Since it opened in March of 1967, the attraction has consistently been one of the most popular ones in the park. With the major rehab under way in New Orleans Square we thought it would be a great time to tle some tales!A walk-through.
The initial plan was to create a walk-through wax museum where guests could get up close and personal with pirates throughout history. When Disney's "it’s a small world" and Great Moments With Mr. Lincoln animatronics were hugely successful at the 1964 World's Fair, elements of each were incorporated into the ride and the museum idea was improved.
