New Peter Pan’s Flight Interactive Queue

Peter Pan

Have you heard the exciting news? Recently a brand new interactive queue debuted at Peter Pan’s Flight in Magic Kingdom. This is fifth queue of its kind joining those at Dumbo the Flying Elephant, The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, Haunted Mansion, and Seven Dwarfs Mine Train. Here is the description courtesy of WDW News:

Even before they soar above the rooftops of London on their way to Never Land, Magic Kingdom guests experiencing Peter Pan’s Flight are immersed in a magical world thanks to a new interactive queue. The eye-filling opening scene includes a corridor of interactive murals. Tinker Bell flies around the room and gets playful in the nursery of the Darling children. Enthralled guests are able to interact with some of the toys; their own shadows dance and play on the walls with the characters of the epic story, before being sprinkled with pixie dust and flying away.

Anyone else excited to try out this new queue? Have you seen it yet?

Disney World News – Jungle Cruise Transformed To Jingle Cruise

Jingle Cruise

If you are a fan of the Disneyland Resort you are probably already familiar with the special overlays like Jingle Cruise, The Haunted Mansion Holiday and “it’s a small world” Holiday that the Disneyland Park receives during the holiday season every year. Taking a page out of Disneyland’s book last year, Disney World finally joined in on the fun by transforming their version of the legendary Jungle Cruise into the “Jingle Cruise” as well. Due to its popularity, the Jungle Cruise has made the switch once again this year beginning Friday, November 7. Here’s the scoop from Disney Parks Blog:

The popular Magic Kingdom Park attraction, Jungle Cruise, has gone “Jingle Cruise” again for the second holiday season in a row! The additions, which debuted in the park on Friday, November 7, offer guests the chance to experience a holiday transformation of this fan-favorite Disney attraction. Jingle Cruise is again themed as if the Skippers are once again homesick for the holidays and decorated the attraction queue and boathouse with homemade decorations, gifts and items from back home. (If you listen carefully, you may also hear a holiday-themed radio broadcast playing in the background in the queue). The boats have been renamed to receive holiday names and the skippers are getting guests laughing with additional holiday jokes. The jungle has also received new seasonal supplies. Unfortunately, some missed their final destination falling deeper into the jungle. In addition to being open during daily park hours, Jingle Cruise will also be in operation during Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Parties.

Happy Holidays!
