Video: Step Inside the Story of ‘Peter Pan’ in the Attraction’s New Interactive Queue

posted on February 4th, 2015 by Jennifer Fickley-Baker, Social Media Manager


What fan of the film “Peter Pan” hasn’t dreamed of being one of the Darling children, who get swept off to Never Land for a great adventure with Tinker Bell and Peter Pan?

Step Inside The Story of ‘Peter Pan’ In The Attraction’s New Interactive Queue Step Inside The Story of ‘Peter Pan’ In The Attraction’s New Interactive Queue

At Magic Kingdom Park, the new interactive queue at Peter Pan’s Flight is doing just that. The queue, which just opened at the park, immediately puts you right in the storyline of “Peter Pan” by allowing you to enter the English home of the Darling family. You then head into the children’s nursery, passing the beds of Wendy, John and Michael, which are surrounded by their belongings and personal treasures. Tinker Bell has already arrived and is busy exploring – and causing a bit of mischief – all around the room. Tink also pulls some friendly tricks on you when your shadow hits the wall. I don’t want to give it all away, but don’t be surprised if your arm’s shadow gets “hooked,” among other fun.

A lot of innovative thinking and work went into creating this magic. We recently went behind the scenes with a couple of Disney insiders! Check out the video below.

Tonight’s “After Dark” image is of the lovely La Place de Rémy area at Walt Disney Studios Park (at Disneyland Paris). This quiet square houses the Ratatouille, l’Aventure Totalement Toquee de Remy attraction, which whisks guests into a crazy, culinary adventure inside Chez Gusteau.
