Countdown to 2012 WDW Marathon Weekend #37

#37 - Magic Kingdom's Peter Pan's Flight

From the Walt Disney World website:
Fly over London in a pirate galleon to far-off Never Land on Peter Pan's Flight, located in Fantasyland at Magic Kingdom theme park.

Take a seat in an aerial galleon, get doused with pixie dust by Tinker Bell and sail out of the Darling children's home and into the glittery lights of moonlit London! You'll soar over the famous sights of Big Ben, London Bridge and more. You can even see the tiny headlights of automobiles twinkling far below.

As music from Disney's classic 1953 film Peter Pan swells, you descend to wondrous Never Land Island. Soon, you'll be sweeping past the Lost Boys camp, Mermaid Lagoon and Skull Rock. Watch as Peter Pan valiantly faces off against Captain Hook aboard the captain's grand pirate ship to save Wendy and her brothers.

It's a whimsical journey that you'll want to never end!

Why am I looking forward to Peter Pan's Flight?
This is one of my all time favorite rides.  I suppose that's a little odd considering that Peter Pan is not my favorite movie, don't get me wrong I do like it, but there are others that I like more.

This is a continuous loading ride, the conveyor belt doesn't stop so you step on and then board your very own pirate ship and take to the sky for a fantastical flight.

This is a classic dark ride that takes you through the story of the Darling children and their adventures with Peter Pan.  You'll see many different scenes including flying to Neverland, capture by Hook, Mermaid Lagoon, and more.

One of my absolutely favorite parts of the ride is flying over London.  It's just a really cool scene and it always makes me smile.

It's probably good to note that this ride almost always has a long line.  It's a very popular attraction, but you can take advantage of FastPass to help cut down on the wait time.  This is also a great attraction to visit during fireworks shows and parades as the line is often shorter during these times.

Hop on board and beware of ticking crocodiles!
