    Re: Winnie the Who?

    I've ridden Pooh at DL a few times but I don't really care for it, though apparently, little kids like it a lot.

    I get a little heavy hearted when I think about either version though. Both replaced something cool, and unfortunately, one of them is something I never got to experience (WDW Mr. Toad). But, eh, I didn't care for CBJ, and I still have DL Toad, so that makes it better I guess.

    The WDW one bounces with Tigger, and then moves from side to side as if it's floating in the floody scene. The DL one seems like it floats randomly, which doesn't seem to make any sense in my opinion, especially since the motion starts before the floody scene to begin with.

    That, I will agree with. The randomness of the floating is kind of off-putting, but rather neat.

    Re: Winnie the Who?

    My DD-8 and I really enjoy the ride. Maybe it's just because we love pretty much all things Pooh related.

    It works great for us. I can ride swap with my son on Splash while she and dad take a few spins in the Hundred Acre Wood.

    I like the queue better at DL but the ride better at WDW, for all the reasons Yoyo listed.

    The story just flows better and DL's story was just confusing to me. Maybe it's because I'm so used to WDW's but the overall edge I would give to WDW.

    Re: Winnie the Who?

    I've only ever been on DL's version. We like it. It's not our favorite, but we ride it once or twice a trip. It is enjoyable. Though in most arguments, you will find me on the side that really wishes it had been done properly instead of on the cheaper side of things. But it is not a horrible ride. It's great on a hot day to cool off, blustery day after riding Splash Mt is a recipe for frostbite!

    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

    Oh absolutely! Just PM me with your dates and I'll come over for the day or something. I'd love to get together with a fellow Hoosier. I'm from Valparaiso and Chesterton, IN. (Northern Indiana)

    Re: Winnie the Who?

    The kids that were riding with me didn't know the history of CBJ and they just focused on Winnie. I did the same and we all just enjoyed the experience.


    This has been a Filmways presentation dahling.

    Re: Winnie the Who?

    ORDDU: Having experienced both the Florida version of Winnie the Pooh AND the California version, my sisters and I prefer the one in California over the Florida Version. For one thing, the special effects in California are better and the ride seems slightly longer. Too, in Florida, the party scene at the end is just a pretty painting, whereas the one in California has full, 3 dimensional characters sitting at a table. This brings the whole scene to life a lot more. The only thing we dislike about the California version is that it seems to be badly mis-located. It doesn't mesh well with the American folklore of Br'er Rabbit. Winnie the Pooh is an English character and would fit much better in Fantasyland. At least the Florida version got THAT part right.

    Re: Winnie the Who?

    One of the main problems with Pooh is the ride vehicle. Unless little kids are sitting in the front row, it is difficult for them to see what's going on. For adults sitting in the second and third rows, one ends up with crushed knees. The ride vehicle takes guests out of the experience. Replace the vehicles with something more open and plus the ride with more animated scenes and a coherent story, and then the ride would be fine.

    It has always been my contention that Pooh suffers solely from improper placement. If housed in Fantasyland where it belongs (among DRs of a similar technical and entertainment caliber) it would not reap such undeserved hatred, IMO.

    This is so very true. And it needs more leg-room.
