Happy Anniversary to The Pirates of the Caribbean!

Wow,  I can't believe it has been 44 years since this ride opened.  Today is the anniversary of the opening in 1967.  This was the last attraction that Walt Disney personally supervised before his death.  I can remember going there as a kid and seeing the big hole with all the steel supports in it.  I couldn't wait for it to open. 

The popularity of the "Pirates of the Caribbean" movies has made it more popular as well, especially since they added Captain Jack Sparrow.  

A trip to the park is not complete without riding Pirates at least once.  Hope you  all can do it soon.

Have a Magical Day!

Celebrities in Disneyland Resort

I haven't had time to write lately but wanted to mention that I receive "Twitter" messages and pictures from a great site called Mousewait.  They sent out a picture Sunday of Pierce Brosnan in front of the Jungle Cruise.  He was nice enough to have his picture taken with a fan.  We have seen many celebrities in the park and in the Grand Californian......a sure sign is if you see Disney escort walking around with guests, they are probably celebrities.  We have seen Steve Young, Cuba Gooding Jr. , Hugh Grant,  David Arquette and Courtney Cox just to name a few.  So next time you are in the parks and see an escort....check out who they are escorting.....maybe someone special.  

Have a Magical day!
