Pirates of the Caribbean - 41st Anniversary

Forty-one years ago today Pirates of the Caribbean opened its doors and has thrilled 10's of millions of people ever since. Still a "must ride" attraction for me, this has to be one of the top Walt Disney attractions of all time.

Today we have a simple post, a May 1967 "E" Ticket. This is the first series of "E" tickets to feature the Pirates of the Caribbean. Also noteworthy is the first appearance of the Enchanted Tiki Room, it opened in 1963, but required separate tickets thru 1966 (See prior Tiki Room Post here).

Here are a few post cards from a neat set that has little duplicate versions of each post card for you to keep. These scans where done with the post cards still in the book, hence the perforation on the left side of each scan.

This is right where I got stuck for 25 minutes last month! (link). "Don't Be Cheeeecken"

Happy 41st! A true classic........

Neat ticket with the "castle and stars" paper instead of the standard "globe" paper. I wonder why they stopped using the unique Disney watermark?

Major, you don't wanna know how many nights I have missed sleep wondering the same thing. It must have been more cost effect to use Globe, but why the 1 1/2 year switch to Castle Paper? Was it still made by Globe? I need to find an old Globe Ticket employee!
