Pirate’s of the Caribbean 50th Anniversary Celebration Starts This Weekend

Hard to believe one of Disneyland’s most beloved attractions is 50 years old, but this weekend the popular pirate ride is celebrating just that. In honor of the ride’s 50th birthday, the park is offering special menu items at participating restaurants. Guests can enjoy everything from churros to a Caribbean breakfast burrito.

The new food and beverage items inspired by the Pirates of the Caribbean ride will be offered at a limited time at the following participating restaurants:

Pirate’s of the Caribbean 50th Anniversary Menu

Start your day right with a hearty Caribbean breakfast burrito from the Mint Julep Bar and Royal Street Veranda. This burrito is fit for a pirate, stuffed with scrambled eggs, Andouille sausage, rice, sweet potatoes, black beans and cheddar cheese. You can find both the Mint Julep Bar and Royal Street Veranda in the New Orleans section of Disneyland Park. The Mint Julep can be hard to find, since it’s hidden away on the side of the French Market Restaurant near the Disneyland Railroad stop.

For lunch, try the rich Calypso Caribbean chicken stew found at the Royal Street Veranda and Harbour Galley restaurants. This creamy stew features Caribbean-spiced chicken stewed with carrots, onions, celery, potatoes and yucca. At the French Market Restaurant you’ll find the Bucaneer Pulled Pork sandwich for a limited time. Delicious jerk-spiced pulled pork is piled high on top of a French roll, topped with sweet and tangy barbecue sauce and pineapple Caribbean slaw. The sandwich is served with a side of fried yucca.

For dinner, head over to the Cafe Orleans, for the Pirate’s of the Caribbean 50th Anniversary specialty steak sandwich. Topped with white cheddar sauce, bacon jam, arugula and cherry tomatoes – this isn’t your average steak sandwich. Served with a side of sweet potato waffle fries, this tasty dish is a great way to celebrate the attraction’s 50th birthday. If it’s within your budget, make a reservation at the Blue Bayou Restaurant to try the Fruits de Mer limited time entree. Pan-seared red snapper, sauteed shrimp and scallops are served over a bed of spinach with spicy shrimp sauce and remoulade.

Satisfy your sweet tooth with gold dusted Churros or beignets. The Lost Treasure Beignets are lemon-flavored, with a sprinkling of yellow sugar crystals. You’ll find these tasty treasures at the Mint Julep Bar or Cafe Orleans. The Golden Churro can be find at nearby churro carts.

Pirates of the Caribbean specialty drink

Nothing would celebrate the spirit of the attraction’s band of pirates like a jug of rum. Unfortunately, Disneyland still doesn’t serve alcohol. You can order the Jolly Roger Punch instead – a blend of tropical fruit juices over ice, served at the French Market Restaurant, Mint Julep Bar, Harbour Galley and Royal Street Veranda. For the real deal, head over to California Adventure Park or Trader Sam’s at the Disneyland Hotel and enjoy a cup of rum in honor of one of Disneyland’s oldest running rides.

*TIP* The Harbour Galley Restaurant might seam like there’s very limited seating, but follow the path along the right side of the restaurant and you’ll discover additional seating.
