Peter Pan’s Flight is open once again for Disneyland park guests after a recent refurbishment which added new magic and effects throughout the classic attraction. Join Imagineers Larry Nikolai and Elisabeth Papadopoulos for a scene-by-scene tour of these additions in the video below!


  • I love the London scene but I don’t like the new streets, not so much the lighting(although that does look a little bright)but the traffic going down the streets. It looks out of place seeing as it’s supposed to be set in the early 1900’s.

    The other additions look lovely and I look forward to seeing it when I can finally get back there.

  • I rode yesterday and it’s great! I love all of the enhancements. Also, I see nothing wrong with how London looks. It has been repainted, that’s all.

  • Just a little reminder, I may have been obsessed with the Disney rides since I was a wee little boy. Just hope we bring it to Disney World. It’ll be better than this one.

  • LOVE it! Can’t wait to get there & see for myself! So excited! Thank you!!!!

  • It looks amazing and can’t wait to see it next week!

  • I had the same type of thought as Zachary when flying over London. The streets somehow felt less “real” than they were in the past. I don’t think the star between London and Neverland was working when I rode. It seems I would have remembered that, but I don’t. I missed Peter and the Darling children on the clock. Nice touch. I will be on the lookout for them next time I ride. Peter Pan has always been one of my favorites and I believe it always will be.

  • Not to be a debbie downer but they totally ruined the London scene. Its way too bright and fake looking now. It looks like the carpets for kids you buy at ikea.

  • What a great job they did on this. Can’t wait to see it.

  • Totally Awesome! We’re going on our next visit for sure.

  • Any word on what the next dark ride to be refurbished will be?

    • Adam – There are no further refurbishments planned at this time.

  • Wonderful and beautiful artistry!
    This is how we always end our evening at the Magic Kingdom!
    They did a Fantastic job!
    A true labor of love!

  • I think they did a beautiful job!!!

  • Looks great! Any plans to bring this technology to WDW (I know that line has been updated).
