Five Things You May Not Know About Disneyland's Pirates Of The Caribbean Ride

The theme-park ride, Pirates of the Caribbean, is celebrating its 50th anniversary over golden churros and beignets and a new movie to be shown in cinemas in May. In honor of Disney's most famous and longest-running ride, here are a few facts you should know.

It was the last attraction Walt Disney saw when he was alive. Walt Disney was diagnosed with lung cancer in November 1966. On December, ten days after his 65th birthday, he died. The Pirates of the Caribbean opened its attraction to the public three months after Disney's death. But he was still able to see what was the ride in development through a dolly guide made by the park's Imagineers.

Pirates of the Caribbean wasn't always a family-friendly attraction. During its heydays, there was a poopy pirate who defecated due to all the romping he's done with women. Another was a couple of pirates chasing women for them to bed. Though it constitutes the basic pirate's life, it wasn't that quite an attraction to the children. They were replaced by food. The poopy pirate now poops because of too much food and the women chases the pirates for stealing their food, according to LA Weekly.

Blue Bayou Restaurant. It has been a favorite of many visitors to dine at the attraction's restaurant. Disneyland considers the Blue Bayou a unique setting for a Cajun and creole dining. The restaurant "sits 'outdoors' in perpetual twilight, surrounded by winking fireflies and the soothing sounds of the bayou's crickets and frogs, while boats filled with Guests heading into pirate-filled Caribbean waters drift past." It is the first to have set the pace of the park's dining options.

There wasn't and shouldn't be a Pirates of the Caribbean ride in the first place. You have to sigh thanks when the management gave a go-signal to have the ride commenced its construction. This is the reason Florida was already too obsessed with pirates. Disney wanted to have a Western River Expedition but decided to do away with it because of the demand for a Pirate park. And it wasn't supposed to be a ride, Pirates was conceived as a walk-through museum just like any other pirate museum in Florida.

Pirates of the Caribbean by the numbers. Let's review. Nearly 400 million people are riding the attraction since 1967, 120 audio-animatronic characters, nine animal sculptures, about 400,000 golden coins, three Jack Sparrows, and a couple of many items and figures.
