One of their most famous rides

The best ride at Disney World is Pirates of the Caribbean. It's 8 minutes and 30 seconds long. The ride opened on December 15, 1973. During the ride, as your boat enters the main area, you'll find yourself in the midst of a battle with cannon shots whizzing by. That's one thing that happens during the ride. Some interesting things about it is that the cannonballs are an illusion, and it was the last ride walt personally oversaw.
