Yo ho, yo ho! A pirate's life for me! Take a wild voyage through secret caverns & fierce sea battles as you join up with the rowdiest crew that ever sacked the Spanish Main. It's a boat ride through classic Disney adventures populated with almost countless Audio-Animatronics® figures.
"Yo Ho, Yo Ho...this attraction has been updated to include characters like "Jack Sparrow" who the kids will recognize, though it's still the classic 'Pirates' ride we parents will appreciate. It's fun, it's classic Disney and it's a good thing the line is usually short."
Location - Adventureland
This was originally envisioned as a walk-through until Walt Disney saw the possibilities presented by the boats in Disney's "it's a small world" attraction at the 1964 New York World's Fair.
Although the stories of real pirates were studied by Imagineers, the show does not literally depict any single pirate. Here are the song's opening lyrics: Yo ho yo ho, a pirate's life for me, We pillage and plunder, we rifle and loot, Drink up me 'earties, yo ho, We kidnap and ravage and don't give a hoot, Drink up me 'earties, yo ho.
Pirates of the Caribbean was on the drawing board for years as a walkthrough attraction. Walt Disney decided to use a boat system similar to the one that had been so successful for "it's a small world. "Pirates of the Caribbean was the last theme park show that was personally supervised by Walt Disney.
