    Went on Winnie the Pooh for the First Time...

    Seriously...is this not one of the best dark rides in the park? Definitely one of the most underrated attractions.

    My favorite part is Pooh coming out of himself as he's dreaming...any thoughts?

    Re: Went on Winnie the Pooh for the First Time...

    It's definitely better than the dark rides in Fantaslyand but I think the reason why people don't accept Winnie the Pooh is because:

    1) It replaced Country Bear Jamboree
    2) It was a cheap version of the Winnie the Pooh attraction at Tokyo Disneyland.
    3) It doesn't fit in Critter Country

    This is coming from someone who hated CBJ growing up, and avoided as an adult:

    The Pooh ride is cheap looking, that's why I don't like it. Any ride where I can see the screws and bolts holding Pooh together gets a big : from me.

    I'm just glad to know that I am not the only one who likes this ride. I think it is acute ride and the songs get stuck in my head!

    Re: Went on Winnie the Pooh for the First Time...

    It's a cute ride but with the amount of space they have, they can definitely do a lot more. I'm no "pooh fan" but I went to the one in Florida and enjoyed the heck out of it. Didn't feel the same with the CA cheapened version. The rooms just felt too big for no good reason at all. They coulda had the ride go up a level or something. Show off more of the pooh characters.

    And what's up with eeyore not at his bday part at the end?! It's the essential details that are MISSING that keep me from truly enjoying this ride.

    But yes, it IS indeed cute.

    Re: Went on Winnie the Pooh for the First Time...

    I LOVE IT! My kids love it too! We can ride it over and over. I think it's cute and I definitely think it fits in Critter Country. All of the Pooh characters are critters....

    Re: Went on Winnie the Pooh for the First Time...

    I enjoy the Pooh, but I think Peter Pan, Toad, and Alice are better dark rides. Knowing that Disney could have made a better Pooh attraction if it chose to spend the money has left me somewhat disappointed with what we have, but like you, I love the dream sequence.

    Pooh is a critter, and as such he fits in fine with Critter Country.

    Re: Went on Winnie the Pooh for the First Time...

    I enjoy pooh - I did have a bad attitude about it when it first opened because it did replace CBJ. But it's cute. I enjoy it - it is bright and creative. I however find Peter Pan to be the best Dark Ride - closely followed by Alice in Wonderland. I would LOVE to see the Tokyo Pooh! And....I think Pooh belongs in Critter Country - more then he belongs in Fantasyland in my opionion.

    Re: Went on Winnie the Pooh for the First Time...

    We both love Pooh. Granted, I think it could have been polished up a bit more, but it's pretty dang good as is. And I agree, most of those who don't like it don't because it took over from CBJ.

    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

    Re: Went on Winnie the Pooh for the First Time...

    I hardly think The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh is better than Peter Pan, Mr Toad's Wild Ride, or Pinocchio's Daring Journey. Heck, even Snow White's Scary Adventures is better even though it doesn't make any sense.

    You can see a ton of the show lighting in Pooh, the sets aren't as detailed as any of the classic Fantasyland rides, and the animatronics aren't as nearly as developed as they could and probably should be in this day and age. And too many of the show scenes are made out of painted flats, as opposed to more 3-demensional show scenes. Many show scenes in the classic Fantasyland darkrides have more fully-realized 3-D show scenes than Pooh does.

    I think the recent Monsters Inc darkride at DCA is a very good competitor against the classic Fantasyland darkrides, but Pooh doesn't hold a candle to any of them.

    Re: Went on Winnie the Pooh for the First Time...

    I seriously love the silly old bear, and anything that goes with it...

    ...and the ride is a TRIP.

    Where else can you get so many colours and six foot versions of the characters when you exit WITHOUT the aid of drugs?

    My favorite part of the ride is the rumbly hives. I don't like Monsters Inc. because of the very boring cars.
