Good morning! This day in Disney history, August 29th 1955: The Chicken of the Sea Pirate Ship Restaurant opened in Fantasyland!

Hungry? Stop by the Chicken of the Sea Pirate Ship for a hot tuna Burger, a bowl of clam chowder, tuna sandwich, a tuna salad (served in mini boats), Disney jello,  fruit punch or coffee (dispensed from paper cups for .10 cents)  or a hot tuna pot pie! All available below deck at the restaurant walk up counter. Also known as Captain Hooks Pirate Ship.

Skull Rock Lagoon was added in 1961, a seating area for hungry guests of the restaurant. The area was based on Skull Rock from "Peter Pan".  Pictured below: to rededicate the restaurant, Walt Disney posed for publicity with the owners of the Van Camp Sea Food Company, Frank Van Camp Sr. and Jr. also the then mascot for the Tuna company the mermaid. Captain Hook was often found in this area skulking around the waterfall and caves.

The whole area was torn out in 1982 for the 1983 expansion and improvement of Fantasyland.

You can see the Pirate ship if you skip forward to 3:55 seconds in the video link below (too big to post within the lounge) filmed in the 70's. Although the entire video has a neat glimpse of what ALL of Fantasyland once looked like. Pretty darn cool in my opinion!

This next one was filmed in 1968 if you fast forward to 2:11 you can see the view from the Pirate ship as well as the side of the ship. But again, really interesting to watch the entire film as it includes some fabulous footage of the original entrance, parking lot, and retired attractions. Also, be sure to look 1:09 in for the "Christmas Star" on the Matterhorn and at 2:47 you can ride through it via Skyway!

Do you remember this restaurant? Did you have a favorite thing you ate there?

Thanks as always for reading and watching! Hope you all have a terrific Thursday!

The first time my brother and I saw the Chicken of the Sea Ship we thought it was a ride we were so excited. We went rushing toward it and went inside only to find out it was a restaurant. The addition of Skull Rock made for excellent pictures. When they Built Peter Pan Pool at the Disneyland Hotel, I was so happy to see the past come to the present.  - Midasgold  605.2 #297 9:52AM
Ha! Thanks for sharing those memories with us! Did you ever eat there? - Duchess_SMK  5909.5 #14 11:13AM
I clearly remember seeing the ship and thinking "tuna? bleeeech 😝😷". Β It just didn't sound appetizing at all!!! Β I also remember Skull Rock Lagoon and still miss it today. Thanks for the waltz down memory lane. πŸ’ƒ - DisneyGrandma  835.5 #193 9:56AM
Not a tuna fan eh DG? Lol  thank YOU for sharing!  - Duchess_SMK  5909.5 #14 5:38AM
I absolutely loved loved loved that first movie with the child doing the narration.It's pretty cool to see how much fantasyland has actually changed-Even some insides of the attractions- the paintings seem to be different. I wish I could have experienced it when it looked like this still. And no, I was never able to eat on the pirate ship. That first video makes me most excited about going to Disneyland tomorrow! *feels 8* thanks again!!  - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  5012.8 #18 10:05AM
I think we all turn 8 when we walk through the gates. I know I do every single time!!! Have a great time this weekend!!! - DisneyGrandma  835.5 #193 10:28AM
😍 So happy you enjoyed it so much! I hope and pray I'll be able to see you this weekend! Safe travels my sweet friend! ::cues  Laverne & Shirley theme song:: πŸ‘― - Duchess_SMK  5909.5 #14 11:06AM
Thank you!! - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  5012.8 #18 11:20AM
*hooks arms* 5, 6, 7, 8!😘 - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  5012.8 #18 11:21AM
awe! I adore you miss Churro! - Duchess_SMK  5909.5 #14 10:53PM
I can remember this, which is a miracle in itself.  I actually found it kind of odd when I went back to DL in the 90's and it was gone. For some reason, I thought it would always be there, and DL would never change. What did I know? The tuna sandwich was my favorite. - Sugarbuzz  183.3 #2108 2:30PM
I bet they did make a good tuna sammy! Thanks for sharing that. It's amazing how much DL HAS changed huh? - Duchess_SMK  5909.5 #14 10:54PM
As always... Great info and videos! I liked to look at the ship but my favorite please to eat was Casa de Frito! They gave away free Fritos!!! - Boundin  587.4 #308 9:53PM
Oh! Thanks so much! Nice to see you back in the lounge! SHOOT! You would have enjoyed my post about Casa De Frito on August 19th then! :) That place looked so neat! - Duchess_SMK  5909.5 #14 10:06PM
Thank you Duchess, I am on my way over to your 8/19 post. You do a great job. You should take all your "this day" posts and make a calendar or book! I would buy it!!!!! - Boundin  587.4 #308 12:41AM
Lol! You are kind, but I just enjoy the research. Hardly any of this stuff lives in my brain. I'm just happy people like you enjoy them! - Duchess_SMK  5909.5 #14 5:40AM
Love this post!  I remember these but not really any specifics about the restaurant...I wasn't that old when it closed LOL.  I always enjoy pics and videos bc it remind me of my early childhood at DL w/my family.  Thanks!! - MinnieMousewife  810.1 #199 10:29PM
AWE! Happy my posts bring back happy memories! Thanks so much for always taking the time to tell me so! You're so awesome! ((hugs)) - Duchess_SMK  5909.5 #14 10:48PM
That would be so awesone if they still had this.  - LilMissPixie84  309.3 #778 9:48AM
I think my kiddos would have loved it!  - Duchess_SMK  5909.5 #14 10:39AM
Oh my son would go crazy! He loves pirates/ships all that. - LilMissPixie84  309.3 #778 11:18AM
That menu sounds dreadful, but I would have loved to eat on the ship! - madsdad  1846.8 #75 10:00AM
You don't like tuna Madsdad?! Not even chowder? Really?! - Duchess_SMK  5909.5 #14 11:31AM
Some of the decor from this restaurant is now on the Jolly Roger in the Peter Pan attraction. - BaseballMickey_CM  6787.4 #9 10:02AM
you have to ride it with me so you can point it out - pikarich  3621.4 #28 10:05AM
I thought that too! But according to Davelandweb "Rumors have also persisted that some pieces were salvaged and re-used in the Disneyland Peter Pan attraction, but based upon comparison photos, this seems doubtful, and there is no documentation for this, either." :( - Duchess_SMK  5909.5 #14 10:06AM
I'm too young to remember this restaurant, so I wouldn't know what to look for on the ship. And, you pass by it so fast that it might be impossible to see - BaseballMickey_CM  6787.4 #9 10:14AM
i wish they still had this and the big skull :))) - OhanaPhoto  3553.6 #30 10:07AM
but then the carussel and dumbo would not be there - pikarich  3621.4 #28 10:17AM
i'm okay with that ;) - OhanaPhoto  3553.6 #30 2:45AM
OhanaPhoto πŸ˜‚ - Duchess_SMK  5909.5 #14 5:41AM
I loved the videos!! It reminds me just how much things have changed, especially the queues and the building fronts of the rides!! I don't remember that sun on top of the Matterhorn! I still get that excited butterflies in my tummy feeling like I did when I was a kid when I see these vintage clips!Β Thanks Duchess for a much needed trip this morning! πŸ’– - adisneyfamily  839.9 #191 10:19AM
How cute is that!? "butterflies"! I get those every time I go to the park, is that weird? LOL So glad you like these! Thanks for telling me! Hope you had a great day! - Duchess_SMK  5909.5 #14 10:50PM
What great memories!! Thanks again Duchess:). I do remember the old FantasyLand, from birth to age 10 we were in the park constantly. They changed FantasyLand when I was 8. Those videos brought back so many wonderful memories:). But I could never eat food from the ship because I'm highly allergic to fish!! Lol. But we loved Skull Rock!!! - hatgal76  440.5 #443 10:43AM
😳 Allergic to fish?! You poor thing! So I guess you don't like sushi then? Lol j/k! Lad you liked the videos! Thanks for taking the time to read and watch! So sweet of you! 😘 - Duchess_SMK  5909.5 #14 5:43AM
Ya poor fish less me...πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ - hatgal76  440.5 #443 9:52AM
I dont like tuna but would of like to see this. Ofcourse i luv to see this old video and now i have Zipitidodah stuck in my head Lol - iLOVELUCYnDISNEY  776.8 #212 11:22AM
😁 Sorry bout that. But it is a good tune! 😘 Glad you enjoyed this! - Duchess_SMK  5909.5 #14 5:44AM
The thought of hot tuna pie is very stomach turning. However I would have loved to experience this. Great history post as usual Duchess_SMK - missmimi90  1707.9 #81 11:38AM
So not a tuna fan either huh? Lol that's so funny to me that so many of you don't like it. I gre up on Tuna casserole, so tuna pie sounds like it could be good! Anyway, thanks for the support!! - Duchess_SMK  5909.5 #14 5:47AM
*grew - Duchess_SMK  5909.5 #14 5:47AM
I used to drag my folks here as a mini! - BombFrogFormerCM  818.3 #196 2:25PM
Fun! Did you ever see Captain Hook over there? - Duchess_SMK  5909.5 #14 5:48AM
I don't remember see Captain Hook but I do remember seeing Mr.Smee... - BombFrogFormerCM  818.3 #196 6:03AM
I remember it well.  We used to eat there every time we would visit the park.  - snowwannab  717.8 #231 2:35PM
How fun!! Do you remember what you liked to order? - Duchess_SMK  5909.5 #14 5:49AM
When did they take it out?  I've seen pictures of this and my parents have a picture that they took with the ship in the backround,  I don't remember ever seeing this ship in person. - DarthMickey  64.1 #4063 3:40PM
They took it out in 1982 to make way for Dumbo and the "new" Fantasyland which opened in 1983. ;) - Duchess_SMK  5909.5 #14 10:51PM
I remember eating a warm tuna "burger" there... I should say tried to eat it... Yuck - carminaire  636.4 #279 7:32PM
Not good eh? Bummer! - Duchess_SMK  5909.5 #14 5:49AM
I ate here in 1967 during my one and only childhood visit to Disneyland. My mom used to make us the tuna melt sandwich she discovered here. It was our own bit of Disney magic back in snowy Indiana! - MelodyMouse  3734.6 #26 7:37PM
Mmmmm tuna melts! Finally someone who enjoys tuna! ::high five:: thanks for sharing that!! - Duchess_SMK  5909.5 #14 5:51AM
Awesome  as always!!!! - secretagentangel  1358.3 #107 9:56PM
Thanks SAA! 😘 - Duchess_SMK  5909.5 #14 5:51AM
Loved it as a kid. The sandwiches seemed fancier than a normal tuna sandwich (at least that's how I remembered them) - msdizmaui  635.3 #280 12:02AM
πŸ‘ Awe!! I bet they were just because they were sold at DL! Magic right?? Thank you! - Duchess_SMK  5909.5 #14 5:52AM
This is one part of Disneyland that I honestly do not remember.   We have pictures of it when we were little, but I don't remember going on it, or eating there, or frankly much about it all.  But Thank you for this informative post as always! - DisneyDavidEMT  1974.2 #67 12:08AM
Eh, cant remember everything. Lol thank YOU for letting me know you enjoyed it! - Duchess_SMK  5909.5 #14 5:53AM
They made the best hot tuna burgers.  - JimmythePooh  422.0 #469 3:05AM
Oh nice! Someone who liked em! Thanks for adding that! Have a great day! πŸ‘‹ - Duchess_SMK  5909.5 #14 5:54AM
They made the best hot tuna burgers.  - JimmythePooh  422.0 #469 3:07AM
I don't remember it, but there are pictures of us with skull rock.  Not sure it would have been something I would have wanted to eat.  Thanks for the post! - AZDisney  610.3 #296 6:22AM

Disneyland unFORECAST (BETA) is here! Top MouseWaiters giving you the rundown of what's happening at the Disneyland Resort. The unFORECAST now has its own page on the web www.unFORECAST.com

unForecast for week of Monday, March 9, 2015:

Park Hours: DL: 9am-10pm (Monday-Thursday), 8am-12am (Friday-Sunday). DCA: 9am-9pm (Monday-Thursday), 8am-10pm (Friday-Sunday). 

Taste Pilots Grill in DCA will reopen as Smokejumpers Grill on March 13 as apart of the new-themed area, Grizzly Air Field. 

Attraction Closures: Critter Country (opens 4/3), Fortuosity Jewelry Shop (opens 3/13), Magic Eye Theater (TBD), Matterhorn (opens 5/16), Peter Pan (opens 5/8), Snow White Grotto (opens 5/1), Starcade (TBD), Soarin over California (opens 5/15), Grizzly River Run (opens 3/20), Luigi's Flying Tires (2016), World of Color (TBD). 

unForecast Crowd Prediction: This week is the unofficial start of the Spring Break crowds, so expect the parks to be a little more crowded than normal. Also with only one showing of Fantasmic during the week, expect FPs for the show to go quickly along with it being crowded around the Rivers of America close to showtime. Throughout the week, expect CIs to be in the high 60s to low 80s for Disneyland Park and in the low 70s to low 80s for DCA. 

Have a great week!

We have always noticed that Saturdays are better than Sundays! We always come on the weekend and say we want to leave at dinner time on Sunday, but always leave by 11-12 because there are so many people. We love Saturday!! - 1Princess3Princes  372.4 #556 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  18.5 #6890 11:53PM
I love these posts!  I do have a question/request/suggestion...is there a way to only show the 3-4 most recent posts?  It's a lot to scroll through. @@Admin - TiggersAndTinks  117.1 #3152 5:08AM
I second this. The info is great to have, but it's too long.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  218.1 #1663 5:04PM

What is dance the magic?? - bks4lou  178.9 #2164 4:40PM
Dance studios sign up and dancers come and do a little "pre-parade" along the route. It's cute ;) - TinkerSchelle  1429.9 #98 1:05PM
@bks4lou sorry-I just saw this question ;) - TinkerSchelle  1429.9 #98 1:06PM
