Nestled comfortably in Fantasyland in the Magic Kingdom is a certain cuddly bear who has a rumbly in his tumbly.
Young friends and fans of Winnie the Pooh will love this adorable slow attraction in a cute hunny pot.
The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh takes you through the 100 Acre Wood and into the stories with our favorite pals Piglet, Eyeore, Rabbit, Owl, Kanga, Roo, and Tigger. You will learn to bounce like a Tigger, play hide and seek with friends, and of course, sing about the Heffalumps!
This attraction is definitely more geared towards families and those traveling with small children. There is no height requirement and is a great family friendly attraction. This is a great place to grab some cool air and enjoy a low stimulation area while still enjoying your Magic Kingdom day. The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh is a quieter attraction with less stimulation than other rides, making it a nice respite for younger children.
As mentioned before, the ride vehicles are actually little hunny pots, Pooh’s favorite! The hunny pots feature ample bench seating with a small, loose lap bar. The vehicles are not restrictive and can comfortably fit 2 people in each row.
Only Disney can make a place to wait in line almost as much fun as the ride itself! While waiting in line for this attraction guests can play in Rabbit’s garden and help Pooh find some hunny in this cute and interactive play area. This is a great addition because despite it not being a popular ride, or one with a cult following like Peter Pan’s Flight, The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh always has a decent wait time exceeding 35 minutes.
That’s a pretty long time to wait for a cute little hunny pot. We suggest that if The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh is high on your list for your next trip that you consider purchasing Genie+ to skip that line. The Lightning Lanes for this attraction are pretty easy to snag, and that way you can choose the right time for you and you don’t have to worry about entertaining little ones for that long.
Did you know that before The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh opened in 1999, this location previously hosted Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride? The same attraction is still operating over on the west coast in Disneyland, but unfortunately, it did not get the same response in the Walt Disney World crowds.
You can find 2 subtle nods to these changes. First, in the beginning of The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, you will see a framed photo of Mr. Toad, the Mr. Toad, handing over a deed, presumably to this ride location, to Owl from the 100 Acre Wood. I guess we can assume that Mr. Toad was okay with the change because is smiling and seems happy, but…
The other location where we can see Mr. Toad is in the pet cemetery at the Haunted Mansion. Poor fella. Though he is too far away from crowds to read his epitaph, it is rumored that his grave holds a poem:
Here lies Mr. Toad, sad but true,
Not nearly as marketable as Winnie the Pooh.
