Overview of The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh
Another cute ride that the littlest folks will enjoy, this is a romp in a honey-pot ride car through colorful Winnie the Pooh scenes. Much of the ride is cheerful with bright colors, happy music and fun character voices. Then the story and scenes turn darker as Pooh goes to sleep and you ride through his dream. A somewhat creepy voice warns “Beware, beware” and the music becomes a bit less cheerful. Guests then ride through a simulated storm sequence where Piglet is rescued from a flood. There’s some thunder, rain and lightning effects. Of course there’s a Disney happy ending. Still, those who are very sensitive and young children may find this scary.
Queue information for The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh
Most of the outdoor queue is shaded with fans to cool down the guests. The queue has a garden themed interactive play areas for children, including a child sized playhouse, fruit and vegetable drums, sunflower bell spinners, a bee bead maze and a ‘wall of honey’ that is an interactive touch screen.
Ride vehicle and loading information for The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh
The honey pot vehicles seat four and have hard bench seats with a back and lap bar. Guests must step up about 6 inches to get in their honey pot.
Wheelchair/ECV information: There’s one wheelchair accessible vehicle which can seat one guest in a wheelchair and one companion. We have heard from a powerchair user that her large chair fits on this ride car easily (thanks Jennifer Keith Petzke).
Non-motion ride car: This vehicle can have the motion turned off so guests who wish to avoid the jumping and rolling motions can do so. Let a cast member know if you need this.
Here’s a video of a wheelchair boarding the ride vehicle:
Details and description of the experience on The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh
There’s one part of the ride where your ride car is bouncing with Tigger. The honey-pot car moves up and down to simulate jumping, which can be bumpy. It also rolls and tips to simulate riding on water during a storm. Disney gives no back and neck warnings about this ride. Most people we’ve talked to, even those with back and neck problems, do not seem to have a problem with this. However, those with extreme sensitivity may have an issue with the motion.
There’s a lightning effect in several places. There’s a bit of smoke when a heffalump (a Disney character) blows a smoke ring at the people as they pass by. It’s not a lot, and it doesn’t happen with every car that passes by. We’ve heard that this effect actually breaks down a lot. The car travels moderately fast. Honey fragrance pumped in.
