Adventureland

"To create a land that would make this dream reality, we pictured ourselves far from civilization, in the remote jungles of Asia and Africa."
Walt Disney[src]

Adventureland is one of the themed lands at the many Disney theme parks around the world, one of which is located at the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida. It is themed to resemble the remote jungles in Africa, Asia, South America, and the South Pacific. The Magic Kingdom's Adventureland is divided into two main-sub areas, one being the Arabian Village and the other being the Caribbean Plaza, which is home to Pirates of the Caribbean.

"To create a land that would make this dream reality", said Walt Disney, "we pictured ourselves far from civilization, in the remote jungles of Asia and Africa." Adventureland provides a 1950s view of exotic adventure, capitalizing on the post-war Tiki craze. Lush vegetation resembles jungles while elements of the "other" surround the visitor. Tribal performance masks, conga drums, non-American totem poles, exotic animal statues, and architecture of Pacific influence make for a confined area wherein industry and technology take a back seat to uncharted nature.

Description

Park History

Ever since its opening at October 1, 1971, Adventureland provides a 1950s view of exotic adventure, capitalizing on the post-war Tiki craze. Lush vegetation resembles jungles while elements of the "other" surround the visitor. Tribal performance masks, conga drums, non-American totem poles, exotic animal statues, and architecture of Pacific influence make for a confined area wherein industry and technology take a back seat to uncharted nature. Noted art historian David T. Doris explains Adventureland as, "a pastiche of imaginary colonial spaces, conflated within the green and foliate milieu of 'the Jungle.'"

Pirates of the Caribbean and Related Attractions

Pirates of the Caribbean is located in Adventureland in the Magic Kingdom, though is slightly different from the original from Disneyland. After the ride, Tortuga Tavern is the place to eat. Besides actual attractions, there are related activities for the children to take part in. Kids can learn to be a pirate at Captain Jack Sparrow's Pirate Tutorial. Also, the park periodically hosts Disney's Pirate and Princess Party.
