June 5, 1999 – The Attraction The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh Opens in Walt Disney World
“Glide and bounce and swirl through some of the most popular scenes and settings of Winnie the Pooh.”
On June 5, 1999, the attraction The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh opened in the Magic Kingdom of Walt Disney World. Replacing the Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride, there is a small Easter egg of Mr. Toad in the attraction, handing over the deed to the character of Owl. The attraction takes guests through the adventures in the Hundred Acre Wood, based on the hit 1997 film of the same name. The attraction has an interactive walkthrough to entertain young children, which includes a hide-and-seek game in Rabbit’s garden and a space to explore Eeyore’s home. The ride itself is a dark ride, with areas illuminated by special black lights. Similar attractions have been opened in Disneyland (April 11, 2003), Hong Kong Disneyland (September 12, 2005), and Tokyo Disneyland (although renamed as Pooh’s Hunny Hunt).
