    Re: Pirates of the Caribbean, Say What?

    You know, I've wondered this same thing. I've always heard "Pirates of the Carribbean" refered to as 'Cara Bee Ann', but if you take a cruise to the Carribbean it's usually 'Ca ribby ann'. If you reverse those 2 pronunciations it sounds kind of awkward, even though it's the same exact word. I wonder why that is though. I mean, it's just about a universal pronunciation of the attraction and the real place, as if there is a standard or something.

    Can never get enough Pirates, keep the Pirates threads coming...until Nemo is ready to open that is.

    I've been wanting to say the same thing. I wonder how many threads will be started when the new Submarine Voyage opens.

    Re: Pirates of the Caribbean, Say What?

    According to Websters, both are correct:

    Ca·rib·be·an Pronunciation: kar-&-'bE-&n, k&-'ri-bE-&n

    Same for Dictionary.com:

    kr-bn, k-rb-n

    Either way it looks like Greek to me

    I have the same exact thoughts. On a cruise, I'd call it the Ca-ribby-an, but Pirates has always felt right saying it as Cara-bee-an. I don't know why, but it's how I generally say it.
    Warning: Portions of this attraction are intense and may not be appropriate for younger children.

    I do the same. And I have always had this same question.

    I remember hearing somewhere that the two pronunciations are both distributed about evenly between the Carribean Islands... So both pronunciations are correct because the correct pronunciation is how the inhabitants say it.

    Thats why Nevada is Na-va-da not Na-vah-da for some of you east coasters.

    Just remember without a well written Disney Villain, there would be no point in the Heroes and the Princesses. Have you hugged a Disney Villain today?

    the real destination is 'ca ribby ann'
    Walt just named his 'Cara bee ann'

    To that end I'd like the Internet community to join me in reminding the Disney company that "it all started with Walt." As you can see below we've created some T-shirts, plus a few simple graphics that you can copy and paste into your websites to let folks know how you feel.
