From the queue to the ride itself, Peter Pan’s Flight is a delightful experience. This ride opened in October of 1971, and received an interactive queue update in 2014. This new queue replaced previously existing restrooms, and has been elevated to incredible levels. This ride is based upon the popular Peter Pan movie that was released by Disney in 1953.
This attraction is a rail-suspended flying ride that is done in a darker atmosphere. Those wishing to ride this attraction will need to be ambulatory as the pirate ships are loaded and unloaded with a constantly moving ramp.
It features all the scenes from the story beginning with the introduction of everyone’s favorite kids; Wendy, Michael, and John and takes guests all the way to the end of the story, with the battle between Peter Pan and Captain Hook. Guests will be able to view London from above and fly into Neverland. There the mermaids are splashing and the pirates are making trouble. This ride features large animatronics of the characters in a lot of the scenes that include the main characters.
Location & Wait Times
Peter Pan’s Flight is located in the Castle Courtyard of Fantasyland, which is located inside of Magic Kingdom. The entrance is directly across from the “It’s a Small World” ride and next to Fantasy Faire.
This is one of the most popular attractions inside Magic Kingdom. Because of this, the wait times can get quite high, especially later in the day. This is a ride that guests will want to head to first if they don’t want to wait too long. When the queue gets long, guests can find the line end heading towards Rapunzel’s Tower.
The queue for Peter Pan’s Flight is truly a marvel. Once guests enter the indoor queue, guests are able to view paintings depicting scenes from the movie. As they move along, guests are transported into the Darling family home. The halls are lined with portraits of the entire family, even the beloved Nana. The halls lead into the children’s nursery filled with mementos and toys.
Throughout the wait in line, the rooms will come to life with magic. Tinkerbell can be seen fluttering about in Wendy’s bedroom and on the walls. It is difficult at times to pull away from the experience as the line moves and guests head onto their pirate ship ride. As previously mentioned, the queue was updated only a few years ago, and is considered to be one of the most exceptional queues in Magic Kingdom today.
