Peter Pan's Flight reviews
Theme Park Insider readers offer their ratings and reviews for Peter Pan's Flight, a dark ride in Fantasyland at Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom.
Written by James Rao
An indoor track ride, Peter Pan’s Flight offers a relaxing ride in a flying pirate ship over London and on to Never-Never Land.
This ride is, well, magical. Feels like you are flying, tells the story well, and is fun to look at everything around you. It is a must ride whether you are with kids or not! (9/10) - Lexi R
Very nice ride that holds up the Disney charm. I dont even bother with standby because its so long. So i just immediately grab a Fastpass and come back. To me its a retelling of a Disney classic that makes me want to come back again and again. - Justin Knight
Another classic, telling the well known story of Peter Pan and his adventures in Neverland. What makes it special is the name giving flight to Neverland out of the window and over London in your suspended flying ship. The flight over the nightly illuminated London is jaw dropping, as well as the arrival in Neverland. Unfortunately it becomes average after this. The beautiful scenes you pass tell the rest of the plot to an end, yet it feels like any other Disney-Style Dark ride, the uniqueness of the flying portion is completely gone. Do this first in the morning, the queues get incredibly long (even on low days) and there is absolutely NO theming in the queue which makes it feel even longer. - Chris W.
A nice, classic, relaxing ride, but it isn't worth wait 40+ minutes for. 7/10 - Dominick D
Good show & music but nowhere near the attraction level of ET which is a very similar ride. A Disney classic, but shows it's age. Needs to be tweeked a bit. - Rob Pastor
Peter Pan is one of my favorite Disney cartoons. I really wish they would have had some type of narrative on the ride. Just going over the sets (which are nice) is kind of boring. The wait for this is always way too long but is a quick relaxing ride and out of the heat. - Don Neal
4/10 - I got a FastPass for this because I hadn't been on it before and the queues were always 60 minutes plus. I was really disappointed at the lack of a story while on the ride. - James Wimbury
Ok, this ride is an omnimover, and I understand there's Fastpass. Why it loads slow is beyond me. If they could get people loaded faster, it would be great, but that takes 2 points out of my rating. You have to see this in the morning. 6/10 - Eric Cartman
a good ride and a really good classic ride must ride in the morning when the tourists are not there and still in bed - Manny Rodriguez
The queue is a bit too long, but this was my son's favorite ride, and we went on this magnificent flight twice and each time we had a great adventure to Neverland. - Brendan Harrison
Ride it first thing or on Fastpass, otherwise the line is far too long. Unfortunately it's so dark I suspect I miss a lot of the detail. - Martin Rees
