Happy birthday to Disneyland's Pirates of the Caribbean.
In honor of the day, Disney released this highlight video of the ride's planning, construction and media opening:
I will now go and put on a pair of red-and-orange-striped socks for the rest of the day. :^) Arrrgh!Tweet
As to the girl, she was one of the many tour guides in Disneyland at the time. If I remember correctly she was in several of Walt's show when they were at Disneyland. Julie Reems is her name. Below is a clip where she is with Walt.
This is one that I experienced first on the Wide World of Disney, then had the pleasure of riding in the early years. My Mom even liked it! She hated most of the rides (Dumbo and Peter Pan was an exception), she acquainted this with her New Orleans area upbringing.
Congrats to a great ride!

Oh yeah... a masterpiece if ever there was one. And a credit to the timeless genius of Walt Disney, Marc Davis, and WED Enterprises.
