Disney has released a video showing off the updated queue area for The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh attraction at Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom.
The waiting area for the ride has been renovated as part of ongoing work to upgrade and expand the Fantasyland area of the Magic Kingdom. The exterior façade of the attraction building has been redesigned, while the queue line is now an "interactive adventure" through the Hundred Acre Wood featuring visits to Tigger's Bouncy Place, Rabbit's Garden, Eeyore's Gloomy Place and Pooh's Hunny Hives.
The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh was closed between October 25 and November 15, 2010, to enable the new queue line to be installed. The dark ride has been open since June 1999, when it replaced Mr Toad's Wild Ride.
The expanded Fantasyland at the Magic Kingdom will open in two stages, in 2012 and 2013. It will include dedicated areas themed around famous Disney princesses, along with two new restaurants and a major new ride based on The Little Mermaid movie.
