The Pirates Of The Caribbean Phenomenon
One of the very first attractions at Walt Disney World was The Pirates of the Caribbean boat ride. The Pirates of the Caribbean boat ride is located in Adventureland inside The Magic Kingdom theme park at Walt Disney World in Orlando, FL. Since the 1970s, The Pirates of the Caribbean boat ride has been entertaining the guests of Walt Disney World. Originally envisioned as a wax museum dedicated to the pirates of the world that guests would have the opportunity to walk through, The Pirates of the Caribbean has grown and evolved into what it is known as today.
When the Pirates of the Caribbean movie starring Johnny Depp first came out, no one expected it to be the massively successful film franchise it has since become. Since the first film was released, three sequels have been made which have been equally successful and made the Pirates of the Caribbean a complete worldwide phenomenon. So, the Pirates of the Caribbean ride was released in the 1970s, and the movies were released in the 2000s, obviously this means that characters from the successful movies could not possibly be featured in the classic ride. However, after the massive success of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies, Disney decided to update the Pirates of the Caribbean ride to include animatronics of characters from the movies. Now people can relate with the ride once again see all of their favorite characters from the movie in the ride. Pirate of the Caribbean has turned in to one of Disney’s most successful franchises ever and continues to be today.
