Happy anniversary to the swashbuckling "Pirates of the Caribbean" ride at @disneyland! The attraction first set sail on March 18, 1967. The park will soon be making a change to the ride. A scene that depicts women on the auction block is being replaced when the ride closes for routine maintenance starting April 23. Disneyland will instead install a scene that shows townspeople lined up to surrender their valuables to the pirates. The tall redheaded woman from the auction block will remain in the new scene, but now as a rifle-toting pirate. What do you think of the change? Photo @theconstantgardner ...
