Sindbad's Storybook Voyage takes you on a gentle musical adventure through the legendary character's epic voyage, from his home port to Mermaid Rocks, to Rukh Island, the Cave of the Giant, Palace of the Sultan, Land of the Monkeys, Whale Straits and back home.
For me, this ride is almost like the Maelstrom of DisneySea, except it's actually got some quality to it to love. Let me explain. I know many people would skip over this ride...a slow, boat ride with a song as repetitive as It's A Small World, but there's something about it that makes it a "WE HAVE TO DO THIS" if I ever go back. Maybe it's the song's melody I like so much, or a giant genie playing a stringed instrument, or that the monkey room smells like bananas, but Sindbad delivers. The animatronics are more intricate than Small World, and it's a fun little show to watch from a boat.
What stands out the most about Sinbad's Storybook Voyage should be its originality of the park. It is a story never been told through the eyes of Disney storytellers ever before, yet is it a ride built solely on legend. The style of the ride is much similar to It's A Small World, but actually got some descent animatronic works which are featured in descent amount through out the ride. And let me tell ya, the genie is huge! On top of that, it is always nice to be in the shade where AC is available after a day walking in the sun.
A fun dark boat ride with adorable and creative scenes from the Sinbad stories. It's definitely geared towards younger children, but it's still a relaxing and air conditioned respite for adults too.
