This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

This month, perhaps the most-beloved and historically important theme park attraction of all-time is celebrating a “kraken-sized” anniversary, so WDWNT.com will be going “overboard” with a celebration to be treasured (that may or may not end with us burning down a town while drinking)…

WDWNT.com is “Celebrating 50 Years of Sacking the Spanish Main” aboard The Pirates off the Caribbean ride at Disney Parks with an entire week of special content, merchandise, and more!
