Did you hear? We launched a new Disney Parks Blog series this week that will feature the amazing stories behind our attractions and maybe even uncover some details you’ve never noticed before.


Erin kicked off “The Magic of Disney Parks Storytelling” series with one of our favorite attractions; Pirates of the Caribbean. The attraction is one of the classic examples of original Disney Parks storytelling and the perfect place to begin. Check out Erin’s Pirates of the Caribbean story and then leave a comment in pirate speak!

And have you heard of the “Domingez Palm” at Disneyland park? If not, you should’ve checked the blog this week for our feature video on the “Cultivating the Magic” tour.

If you’d like to experience the tour for yourself, call 714-781-TOUR(8687) or visit Disneyland Guest Relations. Tickets are available up to one month in advance and the tour begins Saturdays and Sundays at 9 a.m. and Mondays at 10 a.m.
