Video: Walt Disney Debuts Idea For Pirates of the Caribbean Attraction in 1965

In honor of International Talk Like a Pirate Day, we thought it would be fun to revisit how Pirates of the Caribbean came to be. And there is no one better to tell us than Mr. Walt Disney himself!

The clip below comes from a 1965 episode of “Walt Disney’s Wonderful World of Color”. Walt Disney takes Disneyland Ambassador Julie Reihm on a tour through WED Enterprises for a look at Audio-Animatronics figures, sculptures, models and sketches that would launch the first Pirates of the Caribbean attraction at Disneyland park.

This beloved attraction made its debut at Disneyland park in 1967 and is an essential experience at Disney parks around the world.
