“Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate’s life for D23!” As we await the May 26 release of Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, D23 Members are invited to celebrate some of Disney’s most notorious rascals, scoundrels, villains, and knaves at the Walt Disney World Resort!

First, if ye come seekin’ the history of salty ol’ pirates, you come to the proper place! Join us as Disney Legend Marty Sklar, former vice chairman and principal creative executive of Walt Disney Imagineering, makes an appearance in Florida and charts our course for an adventure through 50 years of Pirates of the Caribbean. During this special presentation, Marty will tell fascinating tales from the making and evolution of the quintessential Disney attraction, which debuted at Disneyland park in 1967 and inspired the Pirates of the Caribbean live-action film series. Discover the secrets behind the attraction’s artistry and development with barrels full of artwork, photography, and other rare material no landlubber will want to miss!

Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl

Attendees will then set sail and enjoy the Academy Award®-nominated Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl (2003) on the big screen! The swashbuckling feature follows the adventures of Elizabeth Swann (Keira Knightley), Will Turner (Orlando Bloom), and Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp), as they join forces against Captain Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush) and his crew, who are cursed aboard the legendary Black Pearl.

“Cars 3” Tour Plans Schedules a Pit Stop at Disney Springs

The third installment of the popular “Cars” film franchise is set to arrive in theatres on June 16th in 3D, but fans can get an early glimpse of the story, which stars longtime favorite Lightning McQueen alongside new characters Cruz Ramirez and Jackson Storm, when the “Road to the Races” nationwide tour kicks off March 23-26, 2017 at Disney Springs Marketplace.

Expect fun activities for the whole family, plus an extended “sneak peek” of the film when the tour rolls into town. While I’m personally most excited for photo opportunities with the three life-size character cars, there are plenty of other ways to enjoy the event.

Alamo Rent A Car will sponsor a giant color mural; Coppertone will encourage guests to take part in a racer pit crew tire-changing activity and a fun photo opportunity; Crest and Oral-B will pass out prizes from the Piston Cup prize wheel (I hope I win a new toothbrush!) and will offer fans the chance to create a digital postcard with Lightning McQueen; at the Dole Refueling Station, you can sample high-octane smoothies; Mattel plans to present an interactive play area; and last, but not least, NASCAR will be on hand to share the history and science behind their iconic brand.

During your visit, keep an eye out for “Cars” merchandise and special menu items at select food and beverage locations, plus a DJ dance party with tracks that will make you want to rev up your engine.

Ready to race over to take part in the event? The tour, located at Disney Springs in the former Marketplace Bus Loop near Once Upon A Toy, opens to the public on Thursday, March 23 at 12:00 p.m. and will run until 7:00 p.m. that evening. On Friday, March 24, and Saturday, March 25, join the fun from 11 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. And on the final day, Sunday, March 26, guests can enjoy the experience from 11:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m.
