The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh reviews
Theme Park Insider readers offer their ratings and reviews for The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, a dark ride in Critter Country at Disneyland.
Written by Brandon Mendoza
Located in Critter Country the Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh is based on the Winnie-the-Pooh stories by A. A. Milne.
Opened in April 2003, this attraction replaced the Country Bear Playhouse. The queue begins outdoors and is a vibrantly colored ride.
This version is slightly different than the ones in the Magic Kingdom, and Hong Kong. The Tokyo Disneyland version is drastically different in both presentation and ride lay-out.
The attraction includes an incredibly vivid dream scene, rain scene, and some unexpected special effects.
It's a fairly decent ride. It fits the Critter Country theme better than its WDW version in Fantasyland. Some scenes, such as the raining one, stand out. The ride also rarely has a wait longer than ten minutes so its worth a try. - Manny Barron
Not only is this subpar to any of the Country Bear's adventures, it's weak compared to any of the DLR's other dark rides. Including Ariel's. - Mark Kausch
Magic Kingdom version is much better, especially after the updates. Please do the same to the Disneyland version. - Carl Stovall
it's an ok ride, I love that it's always a walk through. - daniel reyes
Very fun. I recommend it. - John Sim
It is really great ride voting from the kid's perspective, when I went on the one in Orlando when I was 8, I was really amazed. If you have kids, they will probably love it! I know I certainly did....... As for the Country Bear Jamboree, I can't fairly say anything about that because I was only 3 when I went on it and that was over 10 years ago, but I thought it pretty good, but probably would have liked this one better if that I had back then as I LOVED Winnie the Pooh. - Alicia Pearce
Of all the Pooh rides, this is the weakest. The scenes are rushed, all out of order and the whole thing is a mess. Other versions are far better. I'm not sure why people say they're only "slightly" different. They're very different, and this is the ugly step child version. The reason the lines are short is because it sucks. - Skipper Adam
Yeah, so the only reason this does have a 6 is because people were mad that they took out Country Bear Jamboree for this. As dark rides go, this is very good. - Tommy Nelson
Honestly, I don't understand why this ride has a 6 and the one at WDW gets an 8. They're the same, only this one has a shorter line, so I like it better. A very cute dark ride through the world of Winnie the Pooh. - Reggie Templeton
Shorter wait than at WDW. - Emily Brux
Great for children. - Steven Lee
It's a decent dark ride with very little wait times. But still, did it really have to replace the classic Country Bear Jamboree? - Bryce Lewis
When the thing one looks forward too the most is seeing figures from the CBJ, an attraction I'm not that crazy about, well, doesn't speak well. - Marc Ricketts
They got rid of the Counrty Bears for this? Say it isnt so. - Todd Root
