Peter Pan's Flight
[Disney Vacation Planner]
|At A Glance
|Yet another classic Disney
attraction - the most memorable section of which is the night-flight
over the rooftops of London.
Peter Pan's Flight takes guests on a short journey through the
various notable scenes from the 1953 Disney film Peter Pan,
which was in turn inspired by James M. Barrie's novel about the
small boy that refused to grow up.
The ride itself is a slow "suspended flight" ride where
guests sit in small versions of Captain Hook's ship, suspended
below the ride track itself. There's nothing to fear from the
ride turning into a roller-coaster style ride though, because
it never even mamages to reach walking speed at any point, so
it's tame enough for all to be able to partake, although if you
suffer from a chronic fear of heights you may not like a couple
of scenes. Having said that, you're never more than a few feet
off the ground at any point, so you'd have to suffer from a pretty
serious case of vertigo to have a problem with the ride.
During the ride, the guest is taken through various scenes from
the film, probably the most spectacular of which is a flight over
night-time London, complete with the Thames, Big Ben, London Bridge,
and even vehicles on the streets that actually move. The whole
scene being lit by hundreds of small lights, to the theme "You
can fly" from the film.
