Trackless Ride

Travel through the story of Winnie the Pooh while riding in a honey pot that are guided through the ride by a unique system.

Pooh's Hunny Hunt uses a computer-controlled local positioning system that guides the ride vehicles in real time, making each trip through the ride unique. Ride vehicles can react to others in the ride, creating impromptu "choreography" between ride vehicles that seem to dance together.

The story's familiar to any Winnie the Pooh fan, including the Blustery Day and the Heffalumps and Woozles. The combination of a cute story and unique ride experience make this one of Tokyo Disney's most popular (and long wait-time) rides, so arrive very early or very late in the day, when the ride is the least crowded.

NorthRiver.
An absolutely delightful dark ride attraction that lives up to the abundant praise it receives within the theme park community. The trackless technology ensures getting to experience the Hundred Acre Wood in a way that you can't anywhere else, but technology serves the charm of the Pooh characters and settings, not the other way around, which I think is as it should be. Little touches, like the characters covered in fur rather than the plastic-looking figures of the US equivalents, enhance the experience further. Not to be missed if you can get there early, use FastPass, or catch it with a low wait late at night. Despite its charm, I would not wait upwards of an hour for the relatively short attraction.
Blew me away. The trackless ride system was amazing, as the vehicles interact with eachother and spin. It's just amazing!
This ride is awesome. The animatronics act and move like they are real. And the effects are awesome. One of Tokyo Disneyland's best rides. 10/10
Everything you have heard is true. The basic layout of the ride and the show scenes you experience are practically the same as both version in the US. The difference...and it's a big difference is the ride vehicles.
Honey pots are dispatched in groups of three. Along the way, those three pots meander through, dance and explore different portions of the larger show scenes. Put down your camera and enjoy the experience. I wish we'd had time for a few more ride troughs, but there was too much else to do.
Don't miss the recreation of Christopher Robbin's bedroom just as you enter the gift shop. It is an exact (as memory serves) recreation of the real room shown before and after the Winnie the Pooh TV programs/movies back in the 70's. It thrilled me almost as much as the ride itself.
Amazing ride. Nothing like it in the US.
If the US parks wanted to really give us something from Tokyo, this would be the ride! It's amazing!
