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!
