The History Of The Pirates Of The Caribbean – A D23 Expo Exhibit

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the beloved Pirates of the Caribbean attraction, an exhibit was created called “A Pirates Life for Me: Disney’s Rascals, Scoundrels, Really Bad Eggs” for the attendees at this year’s D23 Expo.


The attraction made its debut at Disneyland park in 1967 and has made its way to the Magic Kingdom, Tokyo Disneyland, Disneyland Paris and most recently a re-imagined version of the ride,  Pirates of the Caribbean: Battle for the Sunken Treasure, opened at the Shanghai Disneyland Park in 2016.

The Disney Archives decided to mark the occasion by opening a special “A Pirates Life for Me: Disney’s Rascals, Scoundrels, Really Bad Eggs” exhibit at this year’s D23 Expo. This walk-through exhibit featured never-before-released imagery created during the making of the attraction, plus sheet music, costumes, pirate props and much more.

Take a look at all of the rich history and creativity that went into this amazing attraction:
