Talk Like a Pirate Day and Some Disney Buccaneers!

Talk Like a Pirate DayAhoy, me mateys! It’s International Talk Like a Pirate Day, and that means your little scalawags will be avasting and digging for treasure until their little hearts are content. You should join them — it’s great fun.


As you know, Disney is no stranger to pirates — Jake, Captain Hook, Treasure Island, Treasure Planet, Captain Jack Sparrow … the list goes on and on.

That’s why, in honor of International Talk Like a Pirate Day, I am sharing these videos. The first is Walt Disney explaining the pirate ride that started it all, Pirates of the Caribbean, and the second is a Disney lesson in pirate talk, so you can join the festivities without embarrassing yourself.

Happy Talk Like a Pirate Day!
