A report from Inside the Magic.

Yo-ho! Walt Disney’s innovative and now-legendary animatronics-populated boat ride Pirates of the Caribbean officially opened on March 18th, 1967 at Disneyland. And if you glance at your calendars, you’ll see that that means the ride has been around for exactly fifty years this week. It may be too late to alter course, but you can still set sail to Walt’s original Magic Kingdom to help celebrate this momentous occasion with a heaping bounty of piratey fun.

As announced today by Disney, starting this Thursday guests at Disneyland can enjoy “special pirate-themed grub” at all the restaurants and eateries around New Orleans Square. And on Friday and Saturday of this weekend, in celebration of the attraction’s official 50th anniversary, fans can encounter roaming live performances and purchase exclusive anniversary merchandise like “pirate speak” collectible cards.

Though Pirates has been down for regularly-scheduled refurbishment recently, the ride will reopen in conjunction with this celebration on Thursday.

Be sure to visit Disneyland this Thursday through Saturday, March 16th through 18th, for all the “Pirates of the Caribbean” 50th anniversary festivities, and visit the park’s official website for more information and advance ticket sales resources.
