Fly With Peter Pan On A Pirate Ship

While Pirates of the Caribbean is the Disney attraction most associate with pirates, there is another ride features pirates: Peter Pan’s Flight. This Fantasyland attraction is a little bit more suited for the whole family as it is not as dark and does not feature any surprise drops. To fly over Neverland, you will board your own pixie dusted pirate ship. During this flight, you see Captain Hook, Smee, and Tick-Tock Croc. At the end of your journey, you will see Hook’s pirate ship with a new crew of Lost Boys and Darling children lead by their Captain, Peter Pan.
