The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh

This attraction opened in Fantasyland in 1999 replacing Mr. Toad's Wild Ride, which had been an original park attraction. Pooh is a dark ride suitable for all ages, and especially appealing to children. Large honey pots accommodating 4 guests take a trip to the Hundred Acre Wood and encounter Pooh and all his cohorts. Advanced technology is used in the ride vehicles to simulate Tigger's bounce as well as motion simulators to put guests in the middle of classic scenes such as The Blustery Day and The Floody Place.

History and Trivia - Hide Section
  • At this location: To make room for The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, in 1998 Mr. Toad's Wild Ride was closed for good. That ride had been at the park since opening day in 1971.
  • The Attraction's History: As part of the Fantasyland expansion, November 2010 saw the introduction of a new extensively themed queue for this ride. In addition to more traditional theming, child-friendly itneractive elements were added such as a giant book page that responds when you knock on it, crates that can be crawled throgh, and gophers that pop up out of their holes. More advanced is an electronic display of flowing honey in which guests can write using their fingers.
