Pirates of the Caribbean (Disneyland and Magic Kingdom)
It was always an unlikely topic for family-friendly Disney:
panoramas of pillaging, inebriation, and the enslavement of voluptuous women.
But now the comical “Pirates,” with its life-size sailing ship and rosy-cheeked
roguery, has been made fresh again; in 2006 a likeness of Johnny Depp’s mascara-smeared
Captain Jack Sparrow was comfortably installed in an experience that had once
been quintessentially ‘60s Disney. “The production design, lighting, effects, and costuming are epic
Hollywood,” says Kurtti.
