    Peter Pan's Flight

    Is this ride a must do at Disneyland?
    What makes it so special?

    Is there another must ride thrill at Disneyland or DCA and what is it?

    Re: Peter Pan's Flight

    This is a must ride because you are flying in a boat over London and scenes from one of the most beloved Disney movies of all time...

    I should work for Marketing, eh?

    Re: Peter Pan's Flight

    If you ask me, it's not a necessary ride if it's a busy day. The line gets super long, I consider super long 45 minutes.

    At Disneyland you must go on: Space Mountain, Splash Mountain, Thunder Mountain, the Matterhorn.

    DCA: You must go on Soarin' and Grizzly River Rafting. If you like rollercoasters, go on the Screamin'. But I suggest you stay away from Muholand Madness, it's pretty jerky.

    Re: Peter Pan's Flight

    The must-rides for me - and many people I know - are:

    * Indiana Jones Adventure
    * Space Mountain
    * Pirates of the Caribbean
    * The Haunted Mansion
    * Big Thunder Mountain Railroad
    * Matterhorn Bobsleds
    * Splash Mountain

    The Jungle Cruise, Star Tours, Roger Rabbit, and others can be fun, too. For DCA, the list is quite short:

    * Soarin' over California
    * California Screamin'
    * Tower of Terror

    Toy Story Midway Mania is proving quite popular, but I haven't been on it. Oh, and It's Tough to Be a Bug can be fun.

    As for Peter Pan...I still haven't been on it. The line's always too long.

    If you have never been on it, I'd say Peter Pan is a must. In Fantasyland I'd probably say Mr. Toad & Alice too.

    Re: Peter Pan's Flight

    Until recently I had never been on it. Line was too long for a Fantasyland ride. But a cast member (who is actually a member here. If you read this, you hopefully know who you are ><, so thanks! ) helped us get on with hardly any wait. I realized that its actually a great ride, and it got me to love Peter Pan again.

    There's just something about flying over London that's so great. Plus, Peter Pan is such a highly loved story. So many people know the story of Peter Pan! Of course that with a story that highly loved, people would go on it.

    Maybe we're just spoiled but 40 minutes isn't too long to wait for Peter Pan if you've never ridden it. Go there at the rope drop and you'll get on it rather quickly.

    Re: Peter Pan's Flight

    Peter Pan actually is worth a 40 minute wait if you have never been on it... how can you even judge whether it's worth the wait if you haven't ridden it?

    This is a good point because Peter pan has been around so long, guests dictate that it's worth waiting over a half an hour. When Nemo and TSMM first opened the lines were outrageous. Now that the early rush to ride the new attraction is fading, a true gauge of guest's enjoyment can be factored. There is a reason Peter Pan is 40 minutes and Snow White is 15 minutes.

    I agree. On a NON early entry day, try to be at the front of the rope make a bee line right to that ride and you should walk on. Its worth it.

    Re: Peter Pan's Flight

    Peter Pan is an amazingly well executed ride.

    Part of what makes it so great is that you hang from the tracking system (no supports below you) and that really opens up your views and makes you feel like you are flying.

    Flying through the firber optic star field over Neverland always makes me smile. It is so amazingly well done.

    It's the only place you can see what remains of the Chicken of the Sea boat that used to be in Fantasyland.

    It may be short, but they pack a LOT of punch into those short few minutes.

    Long lines can be avoided in several ways.
    1. Go straight there at rope drop.
    2. Go during early entry
    3. Watch the fireworks from the back side of the castle on the left side right up against the railing by Mr. Toad, when the Fire Dept. gives the all clear they escort you directly to Toad/Pan and your wait will be, at most, 5 - 10 minutes.

    Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter

    Peter Pan is a very good dark ride but not worth a long wait.

    Most of the attractions at Disneyland are "must-rides", although not all of them have thrill factors.

    At any rate, I strongly recommend riding Peter Pan, although it would be wise to try to hit it up during one of the times mentioned above (rope drop, etc.). Yes, some people avoid it because the line is long and the ride errs on the short side, but it's still quite a nostalgic experience.

    Re: Peter Pan's Flight

    I can verify that right at park opening, even on a Magic Morning day, if you head straight to Peter Pan's Flight, there is no line. 10 minutes later, there's probably a 5 minute wait. And it just spirals out of control after that, and never dies down, that I know of.

    I LOVE flying off to Never Neverland, FWIW.
