Nearly every corner of the Disney canon is littered with savvy seafaring scallywags; from Captain Hook to the legendary Jack Sparrow, colorful characters have been hoisting the Jolly Roger for decades! My favorite manifestation of piracy in Disney, however, lies smack-dab in the middle of Adventureland at Walt Disney World. Naturally, I've spent my day in the most pirate-y way I know how: quoting the classic attraction and belting out "A Pirate's Life for Me" (which may or may not have warranted some looks of concern... I kid, I kid.). So go get your best eyepatch and a sturdy peg leg, and let's celebrate this day of nautical naughtiness with a voyage alongside some real buccaneers... but remember: dead men tell no tales!
