Peter Pan’s Flight

    Take a pirate galleon into Never Land. Wave goodbye to Nana and join the Darling children on a gentle cruise over London, where Big Ben and Tower Bridge light up the night sky.

    Based on the animated film of classic Peter Pan this attraction was originally supposed to make it feel like you were Peter Pan. While not expressed well when the ride opened in 1971, in the Magic Kingdom the ride was expanded with Audio-Animatronics.

    Visit the Lost Boys camp and even Hook’s 48-foot pirate ship. Watch as Peter Pan and Hook engage in combat and see if Peter Pan is able to defeat Hook. 

    Fun Facts:

    • The attraction is inspired by Walt Disney’s 1953 animated classic, Peter Pan, which in turn was based on J.M. Barrie’s play and book of the same name about a 12-year old boy who refuses to grow up.
    • Located in Fantasyland, Peter Pan’s Flight is modeled after the classic ride at the Disneyland Resort in Southern California—one of the few remaining attractions that was operational on opening day in 1955.
    • The ride queue has portions that have been moved indoors, so you are out of the sun and get air conditioning. The queue also has interactive elements with shadows and reactions to the shadows. There are also other little games to play with and be marveled at while you wait. Don’t forget to look around at the décor and other details, as it is really is need to be immersed in the experience before you even get on the attraction.
    • Pay special attention during the nursery scene at the blocks. They actually spell “DISNEY” as a nod to the main man himself! I love these little not-so-hidden secrets!
