The Preshow

You can fly, you can fly, you can fly. We all remember those words from the classic movie Peter Pan. With this attraction guest can actually fly. After walking through beautiful painted scenes hanging in the walk way guest get on a moving platform and then aboard a magical boat that flies with the help of pixie dust and your off on Peter Pan’s Flight.

The Attraction

This ride is very simple, maybe the simplest of all rides at Disney World, but is still one of the most popular. There are no fancy high tech animatronics and many of the effects on the ride come from the glow in the dark paint along the walls. As guest aboard ships they are taken off to a magical world flying over many different scenes from the movie during Peter Pan’s Flight.

Dad’s Bottom Line

Peter Pan’s Flight has long lines all day. Why? I don’t know. Probably, because it’s a silly little kids ride that parents still love taking the kids on.

 

Dad loves it.
