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.
