- How many times have you wished you could go back to your childhood?
- Ever wished you could go somewhere where you wouldn't have to grow up?
Well, your wishes can come true when you follow Peter, Wendy, Michael, and John on their fantasy trip from London, England, to Peter's home in Neverland. "Peter Pan's Flight" is the best ride set within the Magic Kingdom's Fantasyland area. It has all of the magic and fun of the Disney animated classic film and shares it with each and every visitor. During this 6-7 minute slow-mover attraction, visitor get to board their own flying pirate ship and set sail with the boy-who-will-never-grow-up, Peter Pan, and his friends. Your ride car, or ship, travels along a track suspended overhead, adding to the "flying" illusion as you twist and turn your way through Neverland's hotspots, being sure to avoid the sinister Captain Hook, his pirate crew, and the wild indians.
Beware of approaching cannon balls, as, on your approach into Neverland, Hook commands his first mate, Mr. Smee to blast you out of the sky. Look out over all of Neverland and you get to see things such as the Lost Boys' hideout, the mermaids in the lagoon, and the Tick-Tock-Croc. Share in the adventure as Peter rescues Wendy, Michael, John, and the Lost Boys before they're made to walk the plank. Then, finally you can heave a sigh of relief as you're safe from Hook, who is trying his hardest to avoid being Croc-food.
Young and old alike can have a great time in this attraction, as it brings to mind the fun memories of this classic animated film. It's a good thing this is a FastPass attraction because the lines for it usually are pretty long for the majority of the day, and for good reason. It's very relaxing, has some pretty good animatronics, and you'll find yourself humming the song "You Can Fly" for quite a while after your last ride. It's very good for young children as there's nothing about it that could really scare them and they'll be taken in by the illusion of flight. For those of you interested in the detail of the attractions, there's some impressive stuff to be found here. Pay attention after you leave the Darlings' nursery and fly over nighttime London. Looking down, the city appears tiny beneath you, yet you can see Big Ben, the London Bridge, the Thames River, and even the cars running along the city streets.
If you only do one ride in Fantasyland (and it's doubtful anyone would do just ONE), be sure and take in "Peter Pan's Flight". It's a lot of fun and a return to your childhood.
