Disneyland's Pirates of the Caribbean

Pirates of the Caribbean! This has always been a popular Disneyland attraction. Originally designed to be a walk-through attraction, Walt Disney changed it to a boat ride after the "line-eating" success of the It's a Small World boat ride.

In the last 15 years, the Pirates of the Caribbean series of movies have reenergized the legend.

The entrance to Pirates of the Caribbean is a double archway facing the Rivers of America. The archway is at the eastern edge of New Orleans Square.

The path on the right side leads uphill to Tarzan's Treehouse and Adventureland.

Through the arches there is a small courtyard with two trees. The line for the ride wraps around these two trees.

A look east from in front of the entry arches. A massive tree anchors the eastern edge of the arches, marking where Adventureland ends and New Orleans plaza ends.

That's the River Belle Terrace Restaurant on the left.

The atmosphere of the line quickly dims when you enter the building.

In the front of the boat. I believe these boats are bunched up because it is the end of the ride.

Exiting from the building, guests are invited into the Pieces of Eight gift shop, but they aren't forced through it.
