Magic Kingdom - Fantasyland - Winnie the Pooh




I have such a completely befuddled opinion on The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh. I do love the attraction. I think it is exceptionally well done, clever, fun, timeless, and vivid. Add to this an irresistibly fun interactive queue area, and you have true Disney magic. However, taking my lifetime of loyalty to my friends in the Hundred Acre Wood out of the equation, I remember just how much I miss Mr. Toad's Wild Ride. Yes, I'm one of those people - those disgruntled Disney loyalists who just don't understand the repeated decisions to shut down one beloved attraction to replace it with a rushed, new one. After all, the space is certainly available to avoid this, but again... I digress. I feel I'm getting a bit ahead of myself here, so let's fill in some details...




The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh opened in June of 1999, replacing Mr. Toad's Wild Ride which closed in September of 1998. To set the scene, guests board "Hunny Pot" ride vehicles, which seat four comfortably. You'll bounce, twirl and drift your way through the Hundred Acre Wood on a blustery day, a dream sequence full of Heffalumps and Woozles, and a bouncy journey with Tigger! And... good luck saving Piglet from the waterfall!


Brilliant color and fun soundtracks bring your adventures with Pooh to life. Young and old alike will simply love this three minute attraction. The queue area holds many little secrets, including a Hidden Mickey. Look closely within the ride for a small tribute to Mr. Toad - a painting of him handing over the deed to Owl. 


Speaking of tributes to Mr. Toad...
