  • Why did New Orleans Square open without attractions?

    Just wondering....why did NOS open without attractions? Why didn't DL just wait a year until Pirates of the Caribbean was ready? Did opening the land before the attraction just build anticipation?

    I think it's a good thing that Disneyland guests were able to wonder the streets, shop, dine, relax, and listen to music in New Orleans Square for ten months before the Pirates of the Caribbean ride was ready to open. That was certainly an improvement over the construction fence that had been there for so many years!

    There are countries in Epcot's World Showcase that have offered a similar experience for almost 25 years now -- shopping, dining, atmosphere and entertainment, but no attraction.

    The construction of New Orleans Square began in 1961. For many years, Disneyland guests had nothing but construction fence and a hole in the ground with a steel framework in that corner of the park. The construction of New Orleans Square had halted as attention and resources turned elsewhere. It was a pleasure finally to see New Orleans Square open in 1966. It was an even greater to see the Pirates of the Caribbean ride in 1967 and the Haunted Mansion ride in 1969.
