I’m reminded how amazing Walt Disney was every time I get to visit the Disney Archives. The things he accomplished in life and the legacy he left behind still lives today. The things he did inspired so many things that now exist and that includes the ride Pirates of the Caribbean.
The photos above are from the Disney Archives where we learned the history of Pirates of the Caribbean the ride that eventually led to the movies.

The original version of the ride at Disneyland, which opened in 1967, was the last attraction whose construction was overseen by Walt Disney; sadly he died before it opened.
The location of the ride is interesting to me because it’s underground. The ride starts level with the restaurant in the bayou. Then it quickly plunges you down into Dead Man’s Cove. There you find pirates, treasure and a curse.
Also at Disneyland now is a Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Men Tell No Tales 4D experience. Starting with a preview of the costumes in the movie.
The 4D experience included some fresh ocean scents and rocking special effects while it included the first few minutes of Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Men Tell No Tales. Pirates of the Caribbean is now in theaters.
