Peter Pan's Flight

Along with Mr. Toad's Wild Ride and Snow White's Adventure, Peter Pan's Flight is one of the three original dark rides that opened with Disneyland in 1955. Peter Pan gets a twist, though, as the sailing ship ride vehicles are suspended from a track in the ceiling rather than driven along a trackin the floor. The ride takes you through scenes from Peter Pan (1953), including a ride over a scale model of London. Based on line length, one of the most popular attractions in Fantasyland.

Access Information - Hide Section
  • Health Restriction: Should be fine for just about anybody.
  • Ride Access: This is the most challenging access for any ride in Fantasyland. Due to the nature of the ride, only one disabled group is permitted to ride at a time. If a group is already on the ride, wait outside of the exit until they leave, then proceed up through the exit. Scooters will have a very difficult time using the exit it is very narrow with a couple of tight turns. If you can walk, even for a short distance, it may be easier to leave the scooter outside and walk in.
  • Wheelchair Transfer: It is required that riders transfer from wheelchairs or ECVs into the ride's vehicles. Due to a raised platform, it is not necessary to step up to get into one of the elevated units.
  • Service Animals: No
  • Audio: No assistive devices are available and sound plays only a minor role in the attraction.

History and Trivia - Hide Section
  • At this location: Peter Pan's Flight is an opening day attraction and has been in the same location since then.
  • This attraction's history: The ride itself remains very similar to when it opened in 1955 with various minor tweaks. The ride received a major refurbishment during the 1984 redesign of Fantasyland, but the biggest change was to the ride's exterior. The old design for this area of Fantasyland was that all the buildings were tents at a medieval tournament. As part of the redesign this theming was abandoned and the ride is now housed inside more of a 19th century manor.
