    Today the Pirates of the Caribbean celebrates its 40th anniversary at the Magic Kingdom.

    The first Pirates of the Caribbean opened at Disneyland park in 1967. The attraction debuted at Magic Kingdom Park in 1973, serving as one of the park’s first major additions after its 1971 opening. The ride is a very popular ride that transports guests back to a Caribbean filled with pirate treasure, blasting cannons, swordfights and songs.

    Over the years, only a few changes have been made to the attraction here at Walt Disney World Resort, notably the addition of Captain Jack Sparrow and Captain Barbossa from the “Pirates of the Caribbean” film franchise in 2006. Villains Davy Jones and Black Beard were also added later on in the form of ghostly apparitions.

    Pirates of the Caribbean was one of the last attractions Walt Disney personally oversaw the creation in the 1960s. During planning, Walt constructed a team Walt Disney Imagineers that included (now Disney Legends) Claude Coats, Blaine Gibson, X. Atencio and Marc Davis. In honor of the attraction’s anniversary, check out the video clip in which Walt himself shares his excitement on plans for Pirates of the Caribbean.
