Throwback Thursday. Vintage from 1960. This is from my dad's stuff. Chicken of the Sea Pirate Ship in Fantasyland. The only place to get your tuna burger or hot tuna pie in the park! Yum! The ship was in Disneyland until 1982. Dumbo was moved to about this spot as part of Fantasyland remodel.

Great picture! Some trivia: the plan in the 80's was to move the ship and Skull Rock over to the Small World are, but the hull had water damage so it was dismantled. Some pieces of the ship can be found in Peter Pan's Flight. - Gia  802.0 #231 9:36AM
I had no idea some of it was in Peter Pan, that is so cool - Linzee  1188.6 #146 9:45AM
you have to know what to look for when riding Peter Pan because it goes by really quick - BaseballMickey_CM  7599.7 #11 9:47AM
Wow, that is a GREAT picture!! So cool! - GibsonGirl87  462.3 #471 7:38AM
Awesome picture. This was before my time so I'm glad when people share things like this. After reading about tuna burgers and hot tuna pies I'm hungry for a tuna melt. - jlipstone  332.0 #735 7:41AM
Your dad took some great pics (and they didn't yellow like the ones my parents took). Gia is going to love this one. - Linzee  1188.6 #146 7:43AM
I do! - Gia  802.0 #231 9:32AM
Main reason they haven't yellowed is he took slides. I digitized some, including ones from that unnamed western themed place in the vicinity. - CobbPR  7283.3 #12 4:37PM
Cool Picture, thanks for sharing :) - CinderellE-79  1025.4 #180 7:46AM
I wish that was still there. I could see it used for a Peter Pan meet and greet area! - Sharkgrrl19  255.2 #1299 8:24AM
What a great picture, I LOVE vintage Disneyland pictures! - adisneyfamily  1003.9 #187 8:30AM
It's good to be vintage age, eh? - CobbPR  7283.3 #12 7:26PM
Awesome pic, so much as changed - JRDrummer_CM  875.4 #211 8:46AM
So, this was a store/restaurant? I'm not sure if I totally remember this or not. It looks cool though. - MeridaFan  4243.7 #34 8:52AM
A restaurant...Chicken of the Sea I think - Linzee  1188.6 #146 8:54AM
It was a counter service restaurant. You ate outside. - CobbPR  7283.3 #12 8:56AM
I wish I could remember if I really remembered this or not! Okay. That sounds odd! πŸ˜‚ Wish I could remember if I ever ate here. Must have though. It was there until 1982? - MeridaFan  4243.7 #34 9:02AM
It was there until 82, but it changed from Chicken of the Sea to Captain Hook's Galley in 69. - CobbPR  7283.3 #12 9:40AM
Hot tuna pie?! :-P - MrsParker  145.7 #2785 9:09AM
A great piece of DL history! A Disneyland landmark from 1955 until 1982, although the name changed to Captain Hook’s Galley when Chicken of the Sea dropped their sponsorship in 1969. Thanks for sharing the amazing photo! - Duchess_SMK  6340.7 #18 9:11AM
I can vaguely remember eating there. I just had this conversation with my hubs. I thought it was a tuna sandwich not a burger. I would have been just 4 or 5 yr old, 1969 or 70. - Sugarbuzz  242.6 #1449 9:22AM
They had both I believe. - CobbPR  7283.3 #12 11:18AM
This looks pretty cool, too bad it's gone - Bunnie  541.2 #381 9:34AM
That's where my uncle worked! - socaldad85  106.6 #3489 9:47AM
I vaguely remember this... To my knowledge, I never tried the tuna burger or pie. - IMissDisney  1205.7 #144 9:50AM
Can't say that Hot Tuna Pie sounds delightful to me... and especially me of 50 years ago. - CobbPR  7283.3 #12 3:01PM
I wish this was still there. I miss skull rock too! - MamaRoo  466.7 #465 9:54AM
Oh my gosh i love this - Apples2  625.3 #325 11:35AM
Great picture! - DisneyVacationLover  505.0 #422 1:26PM
Very Cool Pic. Thank you for sharing it with us. - dimplesdanie  1236.9 #138 4:48PM
SO AWESOME!!! - MagicalLand  414.2 #535 7:32PM
Is this the wicked wench ship that is now in pirates? - Plumiegirl  10135.2 #8 7:50PM
No. There was too much damage to it. Pieces are in Peter Pan, but most of it was destroyed. - Gia  802.0 #231 7:57PM
Gia, I think we must be in the same age range... of course you are younger. Cuz I'm a guy and I know to say that. - CobbPR  7283.3 #12 8:10PM
That was very polite of you! Lol! - Gia  802.0 #231 9:06PM
Btw...love all your throwback pics! Those were the days! - Gia  802.0 #231 9:12PM
Thanks. There have to be some advantages to this aging thing.. I guess memories are a big one. - CobbPR  7283.3 #12 10:13PM
How cool thanks for sharing! - brguest85  230.1 #1608 10:13PM
Thanks for sharing, I love it :) - Ariellove  4.5 #20626 10:16PM
