The First Disneyland Pirates Voyage

This silent footage—the first ride-through of Disneyland’s Pirates of the Caribbean, as captured on film on December 2, 1966—was never seen by the public until our D23 Fanniversary events across the country in 2012. The film footage was discovered when film archivists at the Disney Studio were looking for unseen footage in preparation for Disneyland’s 50th anniversary. Pirates of the Caribbean eventually opened at Disneyland on March 18, 1967, and has since become one of the most popular Disney attractions ever created.
