GUESTS CAN RIDE THROUGH THE HUNDRED ACRE WOOD WITH POOH AND HIS FRIENDS
The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh will bring storybook enchantment to the Magic Kingdom Park when the attraction opens to guests on June 5.
The attraction replaces Mr. Toad's Wild Ride in Fantasyland. It features Pooh and his friends in adventures from the three original Pooh films.
In the pre-boarding area, guests will stroll through giant pages that appear to have blown out of a storybook. The storybook pages are an idea borrowed from the films, where the pages served as a bridge between story segments.
Guests will board giant honey pots for their journey through famous spots from the Hundred Acre Wood, such as Rabbit's vegetable garden, Owl's storm-rocked treehouse, Pooh's bedroom where he dreams of honey-stealing heffalumps, and the "floody place."
There will be several surprises at the attraction. In the scene where guests meet Tigger, he invites them to bounce along with him - and they do. In the floody place, the honey pots seem to float along through the rain and rising water.
The attraction exits into Pooh's Thotful Shop, which will sell merchandise featuring Pooh and friends.
