    Cool Re: What makes Peter Pan's line so long?

    Because... (Cue the music) "You can fly! You can fly! You can fly!"

    Re: What makes Peter Pan's line so long?

    Low hourly rider capacity and high popularity = long lines
    But it is a fantastic dark ride. One of the best way too short though like most of the best things in life
    You can always get back in line though for another flight to never land!

    I like it, but it's my least favorite of the 5 Fantasyland dark rides.

    Peter Pan is arguably the most unique and timeless attraction in Fantasyland, and is one of the rides that truly has Walt's mark on it. Unlike the other dark ride systems, as far as I know the only place to fly like this is to go to a Disney park.

    I'm betting the only thing that makes it your least favorite is the lines.

    No for god sakes. I don't like this as much because there's not all of a lot to look at, & it's considerably shorter than the other ones, at least to me.

    I can see what you mean. I think that the first part (the flying) is so drawn out that it makes the rest of the ride (the story) seem rather truncated and unbearably short.

    But I still love it....

    An added row would most certainly help and I hope they do just that.
    I agree, who hasn't wanted to fly around like Peter Pan!?!?! Not even Skyway can compare. The closest I would compare it to is Soarin' Over California, or even Universal's (now sadly gone) ET attraction. And neither one of those attractions gave you the same personal type of experience as Peter Pan. I'm SO glad they were not able to add an extra row to the vehicles, because that would have made the attraction less personal.

    Most everything in the attraction is mesmorizing. From the rooftops in the loading area and the immediate and gently take off, with the " C'mon everybody! Here we goooooooooooooooooo! Not even a ride in Santa's sleigh would be nearly as fun! Starting in the nursery, and floating out the window over London, then lifting even higher! And all the terrific lighting, just makes it even more wonderous.

    You could go on with the rest of the attraction, and the viewing is terrific all around, even the shape of the sail helps direct your attention to different scenes.

    In addition, everything is some much closer, than other more recent dark rides ( like HM, RR, Pooh, Monsters) which also makes it more personal.

    As much as high capacity is needed for DL, attraction experiences can suffer with too many people in vehicles. (which deserves it's own topic) But Peter Pan doesn't cram too many people together, it avoids that issue which can affect quality.

    There is no story to pan.You fly in the boat over London, you fly in the boat to neverland, you see pan fight hook and then you fly home. If this ride had been built today it would be has hated as Winnie the Pooh.

    I agree with the above statement. I think the load times add to it, too.

    Re: What makes Peter Pan's line so long?

    As has been mentioned, the length of the ride has no impact on ride capacity. It's the speed at which guests load and unload. So the questions are "Is it a slow-loading ride?" (I don't remember it being much slower than the others) and if so, "Why is it slow-loading and what can they do to speed it up?"

    You know what would be cool and personal is if they copied what the ET ride did and each individuals name in the ride vehicle was said by Peter Pan at the end.

    Is it slow loading: Hells yes.

    What can they do to speed it up: Omnimover ramps! But it'd take a lot of time and money....
