Happy 50th Birthday Pirates of the Caribbean!

It’s hard to believe, but 50 years ago today, on March 18, 1967, Pirates of the Caribbean made its maiden voyage at Disneyland. Who could have imagined the enormity of the franchise the iconic park ride would turn into spawning a number of rides at other parks and a multi-billion dollar movie series.

To celebrate the anniversary, Disneyland has created this retrospective Pirates of the Caribbean video. Enjoy!

I am founder and editor of DisneyNews.us and DisneyEverything.com My passion for all things Disney goes pretty far back but was deepened by two semi-recent developments:1) The birth of my son (who is now 6 years old and can't get enough Disney); and 2) Disney’s purchase of Lucasfilm/Star Wars (did I mention I was a super Star Wars geek?)I recently came to the realization that I spent a significant portion of my day reading articles about Disney and watching it with my son, so it only made sense that I would start sharing some of what I read and see and building a little community around it.
