'Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End' premieres at Disneyland, Part 3
Return to Part 2
Once the celebrities and special guests (including Bob Iger, president of the Walt Disney Company, Ed Grier, president of the Disneyland Resort, Dick Cook, chief for Walt Disney Studios, and John Lasseter, chief creative officer of the Walt Disney Company, as well as those who had purchased a ticket to attend the premiere, the proceeds of which were donated to the Make-A-Wish Foundation) were inside the park, they made their way up the red carpet to the Frontierland/New Orleans Square area of the Disneyland.
There, special stadium seats and a giant movie screen had been constructed around the Rivers of America for the world premiere of "Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End."
Workers had labored through the past week building the seating and screen in the area, installing props from the movie, lighting, as well as bridges across the Rivers of America so guests could access the stage on the island to be introduced before the movie.
Guests were treated to a dinner at dining locations on the west side of Disneyland. Various booths offered food and drinks, as well as promotions for various Pirates of the Caribbean related products. Guests were then seated for the film once it became dark, and the world premiere began.
On the specially-decorated stage on Tom Sawyer Island, the stars of the film, including Johnny Depp, Orlando Bloom, and Keith Richards, were presented. Also, composer Hans Zimmer performed some of the pieces he wrote for the "Pirates of the Caribbean" movies.

"Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End" will be released nationwide on May 25, with some theaters playing the film the night before.
