Over the years, Disney has been known for making attractions based on their movies at their theme parks. Few attempts have been made so far to make movies based on their existing attractions however. Out of those attempts only one, Pirates of the Caribbean, has become such a huge success, it has in turn inspired changes to the ride it was based on. This year celebrates the 50th Anniversary of the original Pirates of the Caribbean attraction and the fifth movie in the Pirates of the Caribbean series, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.

A year ago I was on a summer road trip visiting some family and friends. During the trip, we made a stop in Marceline, Missouri - where Walt Disney had considered his hometown. While Disneyland was celebrating their 60th anniversary, I was learning about Walt’s childhood, and the part that the town of Marceline played in inspiring his theme parks and movies. Now as Disneyland is celebrating their 61st year and the twelfth and newest Disney Park - Shanghai Disneyland - has been open officially for about a month, I look at how everything that Walt dreamt and created has meant to me.
