Theme Park Thursdays: Pirates Construction

The construction of DISNEYLAND's Pirates of the Caribbean was unlike anything ever attempted at the time. To accommodate the immense size of the attraction, it had to be built underground. The drops experienced at the beginning of the attraction were designed to get guests under the train tracks and into the show building.

Walt Disney constructed an entire underground complex beneath the park that featured an industrial kitchen for the park's restaurants, an employee cafeteria and of course, some  marauding Pirates.
