 Best Post of the Day 3-18-14
Good morning! This day in Disney history, March 18th, 1967: The Pirates of the Caribbean attraction opened in New Orleans Square! 
(My personal favorite)

"Psst! Avast there! It be too late to alter course, mateys...and there be plundering pirates lurking in every cove, waitin' to board. Sit closer together, and keep your ruddy hands inboard. That be the best way to repel boarders. And mark well me words, mateys...dead men tell no tales!"

The Pirates of the Caribbean attractions' debut kicked off with great excitement! A swashbuckling band of buccaneers armed with pistols and cannons, led by Wally Boag, took over the Sailing Ship Columbia before bursting through the new attractions' doors with a battering ram! (pictured in the main photo of the post)

Below is a couple of fantastic videos with Walt himself talking about the development of the attraction and opening day happenings. I will warn you though, if you are watching with small children, the original Mickey Mouse costume looks a bit scary compared to todays version. If you want to fast forward to opening day footage, it starts at 7.26.

Part 1:


Part 2:


Audio-Animatronics technology had already brought to life the birds and flowers of the Enchanted Tiki Room and the children of It’s a Small World, but only one adult human figure had been attempted up to that point—President Abraham Lincoln for Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln. Just three years later, Pirates of the Caribbean introduced the world to no fewer than 64 buccaneers, brides, and villagers—and 55 animals!

Before the art of audio-animatronics could be perfected, and with Disneys' vision being decades ahead of the technology available; several ideas for a pirate adventure were originally drawn up, including a walk-through “Rogues Gallery” wax museum. But later, Walt decided on the boat system just like the one used successfully in It’s a Small World (Thank goodness).

WEEEEEEEE!

Weeeee!

The attraction itself is housed within two large show buildings totaling 112,826 feet and featuring 750,000 gallons of water that flow through a 1,838-foot canal.

POTC is the largest audio-animatronic project to date and the last attraction Walt Disney himself worked on extensively before his death.

All of the technology was first envisioned by Walt Disney, then created by his team of Imagineers. All the figures in the attraction are designed by Imagineer Marc Davis, Costumes were done by Alice Davis. Blaine Gibson did many of the sculptures and the lavishly detailed sets are by artist and color stylist Claude Coats.  

I was able to find some rare Imagineering pictures which were reproduced in a hard to find Pirates of Caribbean brochure released in the 70's.  Readers were treated with the opportunity to see Marc Davis at work...

I heard that the Walt Disney Family museum features a story about the building of the attraction. Apparently, Walt wanted to show his wife Lillian what he had been working on; but the ride was not complete and as it was a construction site, dirt was prevalent. Walt laid down floorboards to allow his wife to walk through and not get her dress dirty. A dreamer, a genius, and a gentleman.
How cute!

A few facts about Pirates ye landlubbers might not know...
(From the Disney parks webstie)

-The fire effects in the Burning Town scene were so realistic that prior to the attraction’s grand opening, the Anaheim Fire Chief asked that the effects automatically shut off in the event of a real fire.

-It cost $15 million to build New Orleans Square ($8 million of which was spent on Pirates of the Caribbean). This is equal to the amount the United States paid for the real New Orleans in the Louisiana Purchase of 1803! ::gasps::

-The façade of the attraction was partly inspired by the Cabildo building in Jackson Square in New Orleans, which served as the seat of the Spanish colonial government in 1799. It is also noted for being the site where the Louisiana Purchase was signed in 1803.

Happy 47th Birthday POTC!

What do YOU think of the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction? Was it money well spent?  Do you have a favorite part?

Thank you for posting. I love all of the old Disneyland photos and history. I think it was money well spent. POTC is such an amazing attraction. - LaPearleNoir  1172.8 #111 6:23AM
So glad you enjoyed it! Thank YOU for telling me so!  - Duchess_SMK  5557.5 #14 12:38PM
It was money very well spent. We did miss the crab on our last visit. It was an honor to have been able to ride it with you just over a year ago. Our grandson Jack likes it so much that we were on the attraction about 4 times a day and was the last attraction we enjoyed befor going home. You are right that Mickey is scary!( very happy I did not know better when I was young ). Thank you for another wonderful post and video links. Very happy of the fantastic job the Disney people did at updating the attraction without loosing the flavor of the experience. And with the movies now we know when the pirate says fire at Will we know who he is talking about - Tealtownfan  852.2 #172 6:43AM
Awe Teal! That was so much fun when you showed up for my surprise birthday meet up! Great memories! 4 times seems like a good amount to me πŸ˜‚πŸ‘ oh good! You though he was scary too! 😳 yes!

Oh gosh. Love this!  I remember when this was new. I need to find out from my cousin if they were there opening day. And I am pretty sure we used to own one of those fancy color booklets they made of this ride and it's progress!  Key words 'used to.'  πŸ˜©. Thank you for this fun history lesson!  You're the best!  πŸ˜˜ - MeridaFan  3249.3 #27 7:27AM
Yes! Please ask! Awe man! If you ever find that bad boy it'll be worth some bucks! Thank YOU! 😘 you're so awesome! πŸ’— - Duchess_SMK  5557.5 #14 1:42PM
I worked on this attraction in 1978 and had a blast.  Of course we did not yet have AP's and we actually did have off seasons.  Some days were so slow that we would alternate boats with and without Guests. This meant a couple could potentially have an empty boat in front and back of them. Thinking they had complete privacy the attraction might have... A little more adventure.   of ccourse this attraction has cameras and alcoves where CMS can keep a close eye out... for, umm, for safety. - MickeyLumboCM  595.8 #285 7:33AM
You mean to tell me this doesn't happen still? News to me... - CM_Shadowgamer  2321.8 #46 12:45PM
πŸ™ˆ I can only imagine what cms must see on a daily basis... - Duchess_SMK  5557.5 #14 1:44PM

😊 you are very kind! Thank you so much!  - Duchess_SMK  5557.5 #14 1:47PM
Thanks Duchess for bringing together all this great info. I always loved that Disneyland special, one of my favorites and that had been repeated on tv even when I was a kid. It's funny to see how some of the original animatronics actually seem smoother than they do today as well. I like to think Park Mickeys got progressively less creepy over time too lol  - BeatleMike  511.2 #349 8:08AM
You're welcome! So glad you enjoyed it! Love that video too! I'm always surprised at how many have never seen it. πŸ˜‚ oh good, another for thinking the original Mickey costumes were um, not as "cute" as they are today. Appreciate your comment! Thank you!  - Duchess_SMK  5557.5 #14 1:50PM

Such an amazing attraction and a favorite for almost anyone who goes on it.  So much to see that I can never get enough rides in. - Sarafina  425.7 #438 9:28AM
I agree! It never gets old! 😍 - Duchess_SMK  5557.5 #14 9:25PM
Thank you for all the work you put into these.  As a kid, in the late 70's maybe early 80's, I chose a POTC picture book as my souvenir on our annual summer trip.  I loved that book, great to see the pictures while at home.  I wish I knew what happened to it.   - AZDisney  598.1 #283 9:30AM
☺️it's my honor. Awe man!! If you find that book someday bet it would be worth some $! Hope you find it!! Thank you!   - Duchess_SMK  5557.5 #14 7:15AM
Thanks so much for this!!  One of my all time favorite attractions and always will be.  My whole family loves it and I can't image DL without it!! ❀️ - MinnieMousewife  732.4 #211 10:26AM

😘 you're welcome! I actually missed out on that sticker! πŸ˜©πŸ˜‚ Glad you enjoyed the read!  - Duchess_SMK  5557.5 #14 7:21AM
I believe in pirates, Walt! :0)  Thank you, thank you, thank you, @Duchess_SMK!  The vintage videos were great as well as all of the historical tidbits you dug up for us!  May I ask how long this took you to put together?  I think it was definitely money well spent and my favorite part is right after the 2nd drop when you cruise by the beach and the rock caverns!  I just love the music in that section, so peaceful and I would love to chill out on that beach!  Thanks again and happy 5000 MouseRank to you!  - zenderella  408.7 #462 11:40AM
Thanks so much. I'm kinda embarrassed to admit it, but this took around 6-8 hours combined over a few days to make. πŸ™ˆ I have to stay up really late and wake up really early when my kiddos are sleeping. 😴 Great choice for a favorite part! And thanks again! You're always very supportive. Means a lot!  - Duchess_SMK  5557.5 #14 9:19PM
Don't be embarrassed at all!  It would take me at least double that time, if not triple that amount of time!!! Half the time I try to post a comment and I hit the wrong button on the phone and it takes me to another screen and I have to start all over, lol!  Thanks again for everything you do around here!  Have a great night! - zenderella  408.7 #462 9:33PM
The web version is far less qlitchy, I use that when I make these. 😊 thanks again! 😘 - Duchess_SMK  5557.5 #14 7:22AM

unFORECAST (BETA) is here! Top MouseWaiters giving you the rundown of what's happening at the Disneyland Resort. Automated crowd prediction calendars are worthless--the UNFORECAST is where it's at!

Update for the week of Monday, August 25th:

Park hours: DL (9am-10pm weekdays, 9am-12am weekends); DCA (9am-9pm weekdays, 9am-10pm weekends). Since the parks are closing earlier during the week, Fantasmic will only be shown Friday-Sunday, World of Color will be shown at 9pm and the "Magical!" fireworks will be shown at 9:25pm daily (weather permitting).

FYI: this is a last full week to participate in "Legends of Frontierland" in Frontierland as it concludes on Monday, September 1st. Also, the Adventure Trading Company's last day in the jungle will be Monday, August 25 and will move onto a new adventure, so make sure to catch them!

unForecast Crowd Prediction: Expect it to be quiet to moderately busy this week as many schools go back this week, but there's also still quite a few people getting their end of summer vacation in at the Resort before school starts after Labor Day for them. But, reminder that this weekend is the Disneyland Half Marathon, so expect crowds to pick up Thursday and/or Friday as runners and their families come in for this weekend's events. And make sure to keep an eye out for any road closures late Saturday night to mid Sunday morning if you are coming to the Resort this coming weekend!

Have a great week! - BaseballMickey_CM Aug 25, 2014 12:00AM
July was arguably one of the slowest months of the year (some say the Sunday on Independence Day Weekend was the slowest day of the year). However, we saw crowd levels rise Sat Aug 2, and they've been steady through today (Aug 5). With the Socal passes coming good Aug 18, we should see good crowds throughout the end of the month.  - Admin Aug 5, 2014 2:23PM
New "Music of Nashville" event coming to the Big Thunder Ranch Jamboree running on weekends, starting on July 18. To read more info: click here - BaseballMickey_CM Jul 9, 2014 11:04AM
So far this summer, Saturdays have been the quietest days of the week due to the Annual Passholder block outs. Today, wait times weren't too bad in both parks, with crowd indexes hovering around 60-70 at DL and 50-60 in DCA.  - BaseballMickey_CM Jun 28, 2014 11:24PM



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  351.1 #574 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  18.5 #6501 11:53PM
I agree with BaseballMickey_CM.  Saturdays are the lightest days when all other passes are blocked out.  The 4th may be crowded because of the holiday, but I'll take that over a crazy Sunday any day. - potatohead25  533.7 #325 2:55PM
My solo visit last Saurday was the lightest crowd I remember in a long time, especially during the Summer! - grumpypapa  1975.5 #58 4:52PM
I agree @grumpypapa, last Sat. was as uncrowded as I've seen it in a long while! Besides the AP block outs, it might also be that people were waiting to visit until they were off work/school over July 4th weekend. - debbiev  773.1 #198 10:23PM

I wish Disney would install a Distributed Antenna System throughout the parks.   It would make all the cell phones work so much better.     - MikeyMouse  88.8 #3510 7:32PM
I am so sad mine wouldn't post while in the park. : ( - thankyouwalt  41.7 #4578 8:51PM
Really? What problem did u encounter? If the parks are very full going into your settings and enable LTE brings you to lower 4g or 3G and less people are on it. That sometimes help. Churro wasn't letting her telling her see needs to prove she was there. I'm sure if you tell us, we can help you out  - MarshaMouse  3760.6 #24 4:34PM
That is exactly what mine said and that I also needed to turn on my WiFi. It's ok. Gives me something to look forward to on my next visit.  - thankyouwalt  41.7 #4578 9:01PM
Mine started to work @marshamouse and then on Wed I could no longer. It would never register the new wait times I'd post - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  3912.5 #23 9:44PM
True. I love inputting times but I've learned to enjoy the people around me first, wait times second. Well if you need help let us know  - MarshaMouse  3760.6 #24 11:46PM
