Another fun attraction located in Fantasyland of the Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World is The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh. This ride loads kids and adults alike in a honey pot for a trip through the world of Pooh.
Plans for a Winnie the Pooh ride started surfacing almost immediately after the Disney movie starring the character was released in the late 1970’s. However, for one reason or another, it would be two decades before the cuddly bear would have his own attraction in any of the Disney Parks.
Leading the way was Walt Disney World, who opened their Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh during the summer of 1999. It was actually an addition of some controversy owing to the fact that Disney closed down a classic attraction named Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride and replaced it with Pooh.
Nonetheless, the new Pooh proved popular, especially with kids and versions of it were rolled out into the other Disney Parks around the world.
Fun-loving guests “hop aboard” a moving honey pot which transports the travelers into the fictional world of Pooh beginning with the hundred acre wood, of course, on a rather blustery day. From there the rides moves on and we spot Tigger who is deep in a story about Heffalumps and Woozles.
Weary from the day, Pooh takes a nap and starts to dream, treating riders to a very strange experience including several versions of heffalumps. Closing out the ride, the entire cast is seen partying after the end of the rain and Pooh, of course, is eating some honey!
Truly a fun ride for everyone.
