Pirates of the Caribbean, one of the quintessential Disney attractions!
In the late 1950s, Walt Disney introduced the concept of a pirate adventure to his staff at Walt Disney Imagineering. Like so many other of his ideas, it was far ahead of the current technology needed to achieve the desired effects. It was not until the mid 1960s that the show moved closer to reality. Pirates of the Caribbean opened at DISNEYLAND® Park in New Orleans Square in February, 1967 and in Walt Disney World on December 15, 1973.
You can find this great attraction at Disneyland (a must see!), Walt Disney World, Tokyo Disneyland, and Disneyland Paris.
Digging deep into my archives, I found this official Disney photo of the construction site of Pirates of the Caribbean at Walt Disney World!
