March 18, 1967, the debut of Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean

March 18, 1967 was the opening day of Pirates of the Caribbean attraction in New Orleans Square at Disneyland, California. This was what started the “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise.

Disney’s Pirate franchise has been very successful. The storylines are not just fairytales being told. The storylines were inspired from actual legends and historic events!

The debut kicked off with great excitement, as a group of marauding sea-dogs, led by Wally Boag, first shanghai the sailing ship Columbia before bursting through the new attractions’ doors with a battering ram! All the figures in the attraction are designed by Imagineer Marc Davis and the lavishly detailed sets are by artist & color stylist Claude Coats.  It is the largest audio-animatronic project to date and the last attraction Walt Disney himself worked on extensively before his death.

CaribbeanDays can now take you on an entire pirate experience. We can start your vacation with 4 days and 3 nights at Disney World. Stay at the pirate themed rooms at Caribbean Beach Resort and enjoy the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction that started Disney’s entire Pirate film franchise.

Then on to where the history began! A true backstage tour to the Pirates of the Republic of the Caribbean

Parrot Cay, part of the Turks and Caicos Islands, is said to have been the hideout for famed pirate Captain Jack Calico Rackham. It is my opinion that Captain Jack Sparrow’s character is influenced by Captain Jack Rackham!

From your villa stay, you can take various forms of island to island transportation like ferries, private charter planes to boat rentals and tours to Disney’s Castaway Cay to see where some of the backstage magic was made for the creating the Pirates of the Caribbean film franchise!

With this kind of magic, you never know what to expect!
