Theme park wayback machine: Original promotional cards from Pirates of the Caribbean
Published: April 26, 2012 at 9:34 AM
Pirates was the first ride I ever kept my mother from riding. When the ride opened in early 1967, my parents visited Disneyland to go on it. But back in those days, pregnant women were not allowed to ride, and since I was due in October of that year, well, I kept my mom from going on Pirates until my first Disneyland visit, a couple years later.
Any other old timers care to share an early memory of Pirates?
