October 3, 1971 – The Peter Pan’s Flight Attraction Opens in Walt Disney World
“Fly over London with Peter Pan aboard a magical pirate ship to Never Land.”
On October 3, 1971, the Fantasyland attraction Peter Pan’s Flight opened in Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom Park. Similar to the attraction of the same name that opened in Disneyland in 1955, the attraction is based on the 1953 animated feature film Peter Pan, and takes guests on flying pirate ships to join Peter, Tinker Bell, Wendy, John, and Michael in their adventures in Never Land. The attraction is highly popular, and in 2014 a new themed queue was designed to entertain guests during their wait.
