Dark ride

Opening Date:
Sep 4, 2000

Pooh's Hunny Hunt is a groundbreaking "trackless" dark ride, and not to be confused with the more basic Winnie the Pooh-themed attractions at other Disney parks. Costing more than $130 million to create, the ride dispenses with the traditional OmniMover system used by rides such as the Haunted Mansion. Instead, it uses a unique local positioning system, enabling computers to control the movement of each individual car.

The cars can appear to have a mind of their own as they zip in and out of various iconic scenes from Pooh stories. As the wheels are hidden, they seem to glide seamlessly from one area to another, and the system was so successful that it was reused for the Aquatopia ride at neighbouring Tokyo DisneySea.

Best Fantasyland Dark Ride

It's as perfect as a dark ride based on Pooh could possibly be. It uses the best ride vehicles in the world to take you into the world of Pooh. The vehicles are the real heart of the ride as they dance with each other. However, the amazing animatronics and effects certainly help. The Tigger bouncing scene is especially magical. It's just the best representation of childlike imagination and wonder available on a ride.

Infamous for the first-of-its-kind LPS trackless ride system, Pooh's Hunny Hunt lives up to the hype and then some. The queue winds through a beautifully tranquil garden setting and straight into the pages of Winnie the Pooh. We're whisked in groups of three (hunny pots!) into the Hundred Acre Wood, where we are brought through the various adventures of Pooh and his friends, including a great bouncing effect with Tigger. In the ride's final room, themed to the Heffalumps and Woozles, the revolutionary ride system is used to incredible effect as guests spin and spiral out of control, nearly missing other pots around. The pots dance seamlessly around each other, and by the time you pick your jaw up off the ground, you'll realize you're already back in line for Round 2...or more!
