New 3-D Pirates of the Caribbean Phone Cases at Walt Disney World

Two new Pirates of the Caribbean phone cases have arrived at Walt Disney World Resort. Sail over to Magic Kingdom and plunder the Emporium or Frontier Trading Post to find these treasures. (Note: we do not actually endorse plundering.)

Pirates of the Caribbean Phone Case – $34.99

This first case features a pirate skull and crossed swords below the Pirates of the Caribbean wordmark. Across the brown background are images of treasure chests, beads, keys, gems, music notes, and more. Both phone cases have a 3-D effect. On this case, the pirate skull appears to float out of the background.

“Yo Ho” Mickey Mouse Phone Case – $34.99

Mickey Mouse, dressed like a pirate with an eyepatch and sword, is pictured on this phone case. “Yo ho! A pirate’s life for me” is printed around him. The pirate skull and crossed swords are in the upper right corner and the Pirates of the Caribbean wordmark is at the bottom. Mickey and the song lyrics appear to pop out of the gray background.

These phone cases match other recent Pirates of the Caribbean merchandise that we’ve found at both Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resort. Check some of those items out below:

Pirates of the Caribbean

Walt Disney originally conceived of the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction as a walkthrough wax museum. The idea evolved to become a boat ride and it opened in Disneyland in March 1967, just a few months after Walt’s death.

The original attraction has 630,000 gallons of water, 53 animal audio-animatronics, and 75 human audio-animatronics. Blue Bayou Restaurant overlooks the beginning of the ride.

Pirates of the Caribbean wasn’t an opening-day attraction at Magic Kingdom because the Walt Disney World Resort was so close to the real Caribbean that the company thought it wouldn’t be of interest to Floridian guests. They were proven wrong, however, and opened the second Pirates of the Caribbean in Magic Kingdom in 1973.

Versions of the ride have gone on to open in Tokyo Disneyland, Disneyland Paris, and Shanghai Disneyland.

The ride also spawned the hugely successful “Pirates of the Caribbean” film franchise, which began in 2003 with “Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl.” There have been five films so far, with more planned.

Destination D23 Pirates Lounge Tavern

Disney announced this year that Peg-Leg Pete, a.k.a. the Barker Bird, would be returning to Magic Kingdom after a long absence, this time at a new Pirates of the Caribbean tavern.
