    pinocchio's daring journey

    I was wondering about pinocchio's daring journey. It's not as crazy as Mr. toad and not as unique as Pan. But is it worth being a FL attration? What do you think?

    Definitely. I like it more than Peter Pan.

    and yet it's not a bad attraction. I think this ride suffers from being compared to the others.

    It's my fave for FL actually... If we're gonna compare it to the other dark rides than I'd say that you can follow the story the best on Pinocchio, although it doesn't offer quite as much of an "experience" as the others this one has the best scene flow IMO

    Pinocchio isn't my favorite, but it indeed belongs there. As an attraction, it's colorful and a great addition to Fantasyland, retelling one of Disney's most beloved animated features. Yes, it's fine, IMO.

    I think Pinocchio has a definite charm to it. The music is great, I mean we get When You Wish Upon A Star on that ride! And the Blue Fairy! Definitely a great ride that always has a short line.

    I think Pinocchio's Daring Journey is Walt's joke on all the park guests.

    Um, Walt didn't make this ride...
    The Mickey audience is not made up of people; it has no racial, national, political, religious or social differences or affiliations; the Mickey audience is made up of parts of people, of that deathless, precious, ageless, absolutely primitive remnant of something in every world-wracked human being which makes us play with children’s toys and laugh without self-consciousness at silly things, and sing in bathtubs, and dream and believe that our babies are uniquely beautiful. You know…the Mickey in us.

    I'm not big on Fantasyland-style dark rides in the first place, but Pinocchio doesn't strike me as a particularly inferior attraction or anything. I enjoy it in the limited sort of way I expect from that style of attraction.

    I agree. I like to ride it every time I go.
    That and the Train, I love the Primeval World exhibit.

    Pinocchio's the only dark ride that is a 'must' for me, personally (even though I love Fantasyland a lot)

    Re: pinocchio's daring journey

    It's a fine ride. Lots of experience enhancing elements like the rough dock, lots of great sets, and enough twists and turns to make it feel like an adventure. It's a great use of the available space. Yes, it could be better. More effects, larger sets, but it does what it does well.

    And it's not like I adore everything Disney does. I could rant for days on the abomination known as the Pooh ride.
    it's a sale of candy and a sale of plush, it's a sale of toys and disney stuff
    there's so much that we sell, that it's time we tell, it's a plush plush sale!
