1. Pirates of the Carribean

Before PotC was synonymous with Johnny Depp in gratuitous eyeliner, the ride was one of Disneyland's most popular attractions and the last that Walt Disney worked on before he passed away. Guests travel back in time to when pirates had all the fun: finding treasure, drinking rum, burning villages to the ground. If you ask any 6 year old what pirates do after he's ridden PotC, he would say, "Eat drumsticks and sing! I want to be a pirate!"

Now, let's destroy those magical memories and see what it looks like behind the scenes!
