  • [Fun] Winnie the Who?

    So I'm at DL yesterday, it's getting dark, the lights are all coming on, I am in a great mood due to the fact that I usually can't stay that long, and I decided to ride Winnie the Pooh.What a great ride. Maybe it was the moment, maybe it was the heat, but it just hit the spot. I know it's not a high tech ride or some kind of coaster, but neither are the dark rides in Fantasyland. I also know how it's been "roasted" by many on this site. We don't need to rehash any of that. I'm just saying that maybe it's time to give Pooh a second chance. I took a 10, 5, and 2 year old on it and they all agreed that Pooh was indeed worth the effort to walk that far for a 5 minute ride.Maybe it's just the simplicity of the ride that now has curb appeal to me. Whatever it is, I am now a Pooh lover and proud to admit it while keeping my head, hands, and arms inside at all times.Druggas

    I have always thought that Pooh was a cute ride. DL's is a lot better than WDW's version. The ride is really well suited to its natural environment in Critter Country rather than Fantasyland.

      I think that WDW's is more appealing only that it isn't entirely blacklit. If we had WDW's Pooh with our area around it, I think i'd like it a bit better. Our environment surely beats WDW's though, I love the outdoor queue and the serene feel of it.

        My 9 year old loves it. What he told me the other day confirmed my suspicions as to why he does.

        He told me, "Remember my room had Winnie the Pooh in it? On the walls and stuff. I didn't know why I like this ride so much. I think that's why" I guess I was right...

          I really like Winnie the Pooh too. I know it is a silly little ride, but I always have to ride it at least once a trip. I have some friends that can't stand it, but it is just like you said, it isn't a thrill ride and never meant to be one. It is just a great dark ride. I think it is right up there with Mr. Toad and Peter Pan and way better than Snow White.

            WDW's is far superior in my opinion, due to it having a story that makes sense, and the characters not being psychedelically painted (that Tigger and Pooh before the Heffalumps scene bothers me to no end). Also, the ride vehicles have more motion as they both rock and bounce.

            While the DL outside may be nicer, the ride is much more cohesive and logical in WDW.

              I gave it a second chance and a third chance. I think I'm done .

                I love it when people post how great something is knowing that it's widely criticized, and then say, oh we don't need to rehash that. Wonderful, you like the ride, people like all kinds of crap, now we can add this to the list of crappy things that someone out there in the world likes. Fascinating.
                The Mickey audience is not made up of people; it has no racial, national, political, religious or social differences or affiliations; the Mickey audience is made up of parts of people, of that deathless, precious, ageless, absolutely primitive remnant of something in every world-wracked human being which makes us play with children’s toys and laugh without self-consciousness at silly things, and sing in bathtubs, and dream and believe that our babies are uniquely beautiful. You know…the Mickey in us.

                  Unfortunately...I will ALWAYS have a soft spot for pooh the ride!!
                  Actually went on when it opened and if I waited more than an hour for that ride, it's well worth it now with no line at all!!

                      The first time I went on it was prekids and to be honest I thought it was horrible, but since taking my 2 year old on it I have a newfound love for it!

                            I disagree. Our entire ride has the vehicle moving back and fourth and side to side, as if it was floating. As far as I remember, WDW only moves like that in the Tigger scene.

                              I'd like it better if
                              a) It was designed NOT to crush your knees, and
                              b) It hadn't replaced my CBJ

                              So, for example, if it had more spacious vehicles, and was put in the old Motorboat Cruise area, I'd probably love it.

                              Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe...
