Vintage Walt Disney World: Celebrating ‘Talk Like A Pirate Day’ With Hook & Smee at Magic Kingdom Park

posted on September 19th, 2013 by Nate Rasmussen, Archivist, Marketing Resource Center


Happy International Talk Like a Pirate Day! In its honor let’s celebrate two of my favorite Neverland pirates – Captain Hook and Mr. Smee. It appears that this dastardly duo found themselves in a bit of a bind when they ran into Peter Pan and the crocodile in Magic Kingdom Park back in 1981. Arrrrrrgh, mateys!
