46 years ago today, Pirates of the Caribbean opened to the public at Disneyland, and began a new era of themed entertainment.
Now hailed as a classic thematic experience, WED’s 1967 creation was the brainchild of Walt Disney, the artistic melding of Marc Davis and Claud Coats, and the musical and vocal talents X Antencio.
Since replicated and tweaked to include three separate iterations in four of Disney’s Magic Kingdoms around the world, and branched off into the realm of Hollywood with a bevy of cinematic installments, Pirates of the Caribbean remains, 46 years later, a cornerstone of the company and an integral part of Disney’s volumes of stories and experiences.
