“Dead men tell no tales . . .”
One of the original “E” ticket attractions, Pirates of the Caribbean opened in Adventureland at Disney’s Magic Kingdom on December 15, 1973 (the ride originally opened at Disneyland in 1967).
Both Tokyo Disneyland (1983) and Disneyland Paris (1992) feature their own versions of the Pirates of the Caribbean ride.
Written in 1967 by George Bruns and Xavier Atencio, “Yo Ho (A Pirate’s Life for Me)” is the Pirates of the Caribbean theme song.
Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl was Disney’s first PG-13 rated movie.
Characters from Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, Capt. Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) and his nemesis Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush), as well as new special effects, were added in to this classic attraction in 2006 to coincide with the release of the sequel, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men’s Chest.
