Fifty years ago, on March 18, 1967, a Disney Parks classic first set sail at Disneyland park. Throughout the next 50 years, Pirates of the Caribbean went on to become an iconic fan favorite, pillaging and plundering at Disney Parks around the world, with Pirates of the Caribbean attractions at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, Tokyo Disneyland, Disneyland Paris and most recently, the award-winning Pirates of the Caribbean – Battle for the Sunken Treasure at Shanghai Disney Resort. Take a look at some fun facts about this Disneyland original in the video below!

  • Kathy – I don’t know if you’ll see this but I actually did a post on Instagram about this and came up with seagull, parrot, chicken, dog, donkey, pig, cat, goat and alligator. I’m guessing the fireflies being insects and crab being a crustacean doesn’t count as an “animal”. ????

  • Sea gull, parrot, chicken, dog, donkey, pig, cat, crab, goat. Would this be the nine?

  • Hi Erin – Cute video! Though it leaves me wondering what are the nine animals represented. I mean are you guys counting “birds” as one type of animal? 🙂 Thanks, Shannon
