A Different Look at Pirates of the Caribbean

Or should I say a different look at the Blue Bayou from the boats that depart on the high seas adventure? This is just a beautiful piece!

Imagineering's Herb Ryman rare look at the Blue Bayou from Disneyland's Pirates of the Caribbean. As with many of his renderings, this conceptual look at the bayou is filled with subtle as well as vibrant touches. Certainly, it's an expressive piece that captures the romance and drama of the signature New Orleans Square restaurant as well as the opening scenes to Disney's iconic Audio-Animatronics adventure. 

At its opening 50 years ago tomorrow, Pirates of the Caribbean set the new standard for Disney theme park attractions- and in my not always so humble opinion- has yet to be matched or surpassed.
