Peter Pan’s Flight at Magic Kingdom

Peter Pan’s Flight is an attraction that nearly all guests will want to ride on their Walt Disney World vacation. The ride is located in the original Fantasyland portion of Magic Kingdom. If you have visited before, you might be familiar with the fact that this area tends to get extremely crowded in the afternoon to early evening.

As far as the attraction goes, you’ll step out onto a slow-moving platform to board your very own pirate ship. Two to three guests can sit comfortably across the row. Then a lap bar will be lowered by a little pixie dust magic as you move forward.

Initially, you’ll set sail over England as you make your way off to Neverland.

While you might not think about it, the track for your ship is actually above you, and your pirate ship hangs from it. You’ll look down on different scenes of the ride with the concept of forced perspective, making you feel like you are in an airplane. Don’t worry, you probably aren’t as high up as it seems.

Before long, you’ll be singing tunes by the Mermaid Lagoon.

And then witness Peter Pan, himself, save Wendy and the boys from the terrible Captain Hook! It’s all smooth sailing from there.

Need to Know about Peter Pan’s Flight: Expect really long lines for Peter Pan’s Flight throughout the majority of the day. The common wait time I see while in the parks is between 60-70 minutes.

That’s a long time to wait. And since the queue was redone a few years back, many guests elect to ride Peter Pan’s Flight via the standby line to see it.

Best Time to Ride: You might also want to ride this attraction first thing in the morning or last thing in the evening. Wait times start to rise fairly early for this attraction and stay consistent throughout the day.

Additionally, with the new Genie portion of the My Disney Experience app, guests should be able to reference the best time of day to ride this attraction.
