Pirates of the Caribbean
Disney attraction portrait series #5: Pirates of the Carribbean
Set sail with the wildest crew who ever sacked the Spanish Main! The Haunted Mansion may be first in my heart, but Pirates was the groundbreaking masterpiece that really took Disneyland's attractions to the next level of greatness. Taking you through the blue bayou, deep into skelton-filled caves, and then back in time to the era of the pirates, this dark ride was more elaborate and immersive than anything that had ever come before and darn few things that have come since.
There have been changes over the years, a little desexualization here, a little intrusion of movie elements there, but all in all it has retained the spirit and impact that it had at its 1967.
