Peter Pan's Flight

One of the most beloved dark rides in Fantasyland, Peter Pan's Flight opened two days after the Magic Kingdom in October 1971. Pirate galleons holding two or three guests are suspended from the ceiling at they glide through scenes from the animated classic Peter Pan, including a scale model of London. The ride is less than three minutes long but the queue is guaranteed to be long as Peter Pan's Flight is one of the most popular attractions in the park.
