Disneyland Resort 1

Walt Disney (left) checks out one of the figures and a model of one of the scenes of the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction for Disneyland with Disney Imagineer Claude Coats, who served as the production designer and art director for the ride. Coats also did the layouts for the routing of the boats through the buildings around and under New Orleans Square, then under the railroad tracks to the outer building. The attraction opened its doors on March 18, 1967. It was the last Disneyland attraction personally supervised by Disney, who died in December 1966.
