A whimsical two to three person suspended dark ride recreating the story, music, and characters of Walt Disney's animated version of Peter Pan, based on the classic Peter Pan Story.

One of the original rides from Disneyland's 1955 opening day. Only problem: there was no Audio-Animatronic of Peter Pan, and audiences were left wondering where he was.

The Florida version of the ride opened in 1971. While the overall theme and format of the ride was almost identical to the original in California, the Florida ride, would feature its characters in Audio-Animatronic style.

In 1982, Disneyland's Fantasyland was in a phase of major overhaul. Mr. Toad and Snow White's dark rides moved their respective loading areas (and partial murals) indoors, but the Peter Pan ride still featured a colorful mural, depicting the characters from the film. In 1983, an Audio-Animatronic Peter Pan was added to the ride.

Between Disneyland's and the Magic Kingdom's versions, the layout and theme is very similar, but they are not 100% carbon copies.


The new upgrades made the ride much better. I wouldn't wait a long wait for this one, go early on the morning or after dark.
I love love love Peter Pan so much. I'm crazily obsessed with the movie and Peter himself. But I can rarely ride this ride when I go because the lines! Even as a child I couldn't often ride even on empty days. The ride is quite lovely though, its fun too fly and the scenes your flying through are beautiful. I love traveling into Neverland, and if the lines gone down or you have some time too burn, go check this ride out.
It's a nice ride but unfortunately lines are always long. A 45 minute wait seems to be the norm here and even on less busy days, this ride has one of the longer lines in the park. This ride also seems to be the shortest of the Fantasyland dark rides. Getting a bird's eye view of some of the scenes in Peter Pan is pretty interesting though.
This is my favorite ride in the park. Well themed, tells the story, and a suspended ride is the perfect vehicle for Peter Pan. I really am a thrill seeker at heart so I think that should say something about how good this ride really is. (9/10)
I like this ride but the lines are always long
