Pirates of the Caribbean is an attraction that marvels the imagination, with hidden treasure, cannon fire, and salty pirates. The attraction was initially planned as a basement walk-through called “Pirates Wax Museum”. In 1961 construction began.

With all that Walt had learned from The Worlds Fair, he decided that the walk-through would be changed to an elaborate boat adventure instead.

The attraction would consist of two buildings on three levels with a ceiling height of 40 feet. Inside this massive structure are 66 pirates and villagers, 57 animals & birds and a pirate ship.

The true genius of Walt’s creativity was how to get the guests outside the Berm without them knowing it. The solution was two very exciting waterfalls.
