Pirates Of The Caribbean has been delighting Walt Disney World guests ever since it premiered in the earlier days of the Magic Kingdom. But, did you know that Pirates wasn’t an original, opening day, Magic Kingdom attraction? This week I’ll tell you all about the history of this iconic attraction in the Word of the Week – Pirates.

This week I’ll talk all about the history of Pirates, the changes over the years, and why it is still an iconic and popular attraction after all these years!
