Peter Pan’s Flight is practically an opening day attraction (it opened 2 days later), and it is just as popular now as it was back in 1971!
Located in Fantasyland in the Magic Kingdom, this attraction is a classic family friendly dark ride.
Beware – if Peter Pan’s Flight is on your must-do list for your Magic Kingdom day, you should consider purchasing Genie+, or plan to rope drop and do this ride ASAP. While the ride clocks in at 2 minutes, the standby wait time is at least 60 minutes!
Peter Pan’s Flight is one case where the queue is just as much fun as the ride itself! Back in 2015 Disney reimagined the queue for one of the park’s most popular rides. Since the ride maintains long lines and had such a tight queue, imagineers decided to create a fun, interactive experience!
When you wait in the standby line you will walk through the Darling’s home and even the nursery! Do you see Tinkerbell? She’s flying around the nursery. Our favorite element is the interactive silhouette screen that will “capture” your shadow!
While there is more room than there was previously and it is a fully air conditioned queue, it’s important to note that this area is still very tight and enclosed. You cannot see outside, and there are no quick and easy exits.
Peter Pan’s Flight is the perfect family friendly attraction with no height requirements, and even infants and pregnant women can ride. The vehicles are roomy with just a lap bar that comes down, so there is not too much restriction. These ships can easily fit 2 adults or 1 adult and 2 children.
The ride will take you from the Darling’s home, over London, and off to Neverland! Off we go! Peter Pan’s Flight is a slow and smooth attraction with classic Disney blacklight painted scenes, but it is important to note that you will be suspended 30 feet in the air. Come on, all you need to take off is faith, trust, and pixie dust!
More About Genie+
Peter Pan’s Flight is so popular that it is unlikely to appear in your list of available Lightning Lanes. The best chance to score a Lightning Lane is to make it your first selection at 7:00 AM. Remember, you can make your first selection for your reserved park at 7:00 if you are a Disney Resort Guest (or Shades of Green guest). This is the time to choose either the most popular ride in the park, or your absolute must-do attraction.
