#DisneyTrivia – More Winnie the Pooh!

Winnie the Pooh

The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh!

Hello everyone, and welcome to today’s #DisneyTrivia post.  As has become our standard during our #DisneyWorldCountdown, today we are continuing our look at the Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh with some interesting facts and figures about the attraction!  I’d first like to welcome my friends Jodi from Magical Mouse Schoolhouse and Heidi from Heidi’s Head tonight!  Our friend Jenn from Disney Babies Blog has had to temporarily step down due to scheduling conflicts, but we look forward to her return in the near future!

  • The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh opened on June 4, 1999, as a replacement to Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride…there are many people that are still upset by this decision!
  • Pooh’s Tree had to be moved as part of the Fantasyland expansion.  The tree, which weighs 120 tons, and to move it required 3 nights of work involving one of the largest mobile hydraulic cranes in the construction industry to move it.  The crane actually had to be taken apart and put back together in order to make it across a bridge!
  • Each “Hunny Pot” holds four guests, and up to 12 “Hunny Pots” can be on the track at one time!
  • The ride length is 3 minutes.

If you want to watch a video of the move of the tree from the Disney Parks Blog, here it is!

55 Days: Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh

#Day55: The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh!

Hello everyone, and welcome to today’s post for our #DisneyWorldCountdown series!  We are now at #Day55 in our countdown, almost halfway completed, and today’s post is about the Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh!  This attraction is located in Fantasyland, and also exists in Disneyland at Critter Country.  The Magic Kingdom version has a new interactive queue that allows your younger kids to play in Pooh’s tree, as well as look for different things in special honey displays, and other fun things for the kids.  At this point, I would guess that Sophie has outgrown the interactive queue part of this, but we still enjoy taking a ride into the Hundred Acre Wood from time to time!

Sophie about to embark on her journey to the Hundred Acre Wood!

The picture of Sophie above is an older one — she was only 5 or 6 in this photo, and still had quite the baby face!  The honeypots that we ride in, though, haven’t changed at all to my knowledge, and one game we like to play is to see if we can guess what color honeypot we will get!

Owl’s tree has fallen down, but that doesn’t stop Owl from telling his story!

The ride focuses on the part of the story where they celebrate a Happy Windsday!  The wind was blowing so hard that Owl’s tree fell over, and the rain fell and fell and fell, and — well, you know the story I’m sure!  The ride is quite nice when you are visiting the Magic Kingdom during a hot summer day and want to cool down, that’s for sure!

Even though we’ve kind of outgrown this, I still enjoy this ride.  It’s a fun little trip down memory lane, and when you’re at Disney, that’s really what it’s all about, isn’t it?  Do you like this ride?  Let me know in the comments if you do and what your favorite part of the ride is, and thanks for stopping by!
