  • [Question] Winnie the Pooh question

    I've heard it said that you can still see Melvin, Buff, and Max inside current-day Adventures of Winnie the Pooh. Is this so? The last couple times I've ridden I've looked for them but have been unable to spot them. As I think the ride is somewhat creepy, I'd prefer not to get on it again anytime soon if they're not in there.

    They are, look behind and above you as you exit the Heffalump and Woozle dream sequence. That's where they are.

      They are there (last time I checked...I don't usually ride pooh much)
      They are after you exit the Nightmare room (or whatever they call it)
      You have to be in the right spot (in front I think) and look quickly.

      To that end I'd like the Internet community to join me in reminding the Disney company that "it all started with Walt." As you can see below we've created some T-shirts, plus a few simple graphics that you can copy and paste into your websites to let folks know how you feel.

        You can really be in any spot, even the back, but the back is harder because you can only see them when you look straight up as you're passing under them. Here's a picture:

          If your in one the first 2 rows, as you exit the Heffalump scene, look up and they are on the wall on the arch connecting the 2 rooms.

            Interesting. Thanks for the information! They look to be in plain sight in that photo... I can't believe I keep missing them when I'm intentionally trying to find them.

            Now, is that their original location or were they originally somewhere else in the building?

              You have to look up and back...that is kind of why they are hard to spot.

                No, that's not their original position. They were put there intentionally.

                  yes they are there as you exit the heffalumps and woozles, but as you enter the honey room or the "hunny" room

                      I always thought it was a clever ploy hatched by the brilliant minds of WDI. The heads give anyone over the age of 5 a reason to ride Pooh...

                        at least once huh? when a friend(JEDI STITCH) and I were at the park, we were in downtown Disney and one of the cast members and I were talking about pooh. i told her we were not going to ride it on principal,and she said."Oh but you have to see the heads"....
                        At that point my freind looked at her and asked "What heads?" after she told us where to look ..just out of morbid curiosity we went on it just to see if it was true,.....the bear got us to ride his crappy ride after all.......

                            I always think it's kind of scary seeing them there... like not moving or anything. Just staring into nothingness. I don't know maybe it's just me. It's nice that they're there though.

                              maybe if they at least closed their eyes it would not be so bad...right now they have those creepy blank stares...and its right after you go through the heffalump drug trip to boot. and that makes em look all that creepier

                                Originally they were in the main show room of the attraction, over the exit doors. They would talk to each other and to the performers in the show.

                                sigh. I miss that show!

                                  I miss that show, too. I don't remember it much from here, but I went to Walt Disney World a few years ago and I saw Country Bear Jamboree, and I really liked it.

                                    Alright, so I convinced my boyfriend that we should go on Pooh once more to look for these guys (neither or us really enjoy the ride), and we got to go in the front row. To my surprise, they were there! The heads are a lot larger than I expected. I don't know, but it seems that maybe the Imagineers that created this experience may not have liked the idea of changing out the Country Bear Jamboree/Playhouse for Pooh and stuck them in there on purpose. Heck, perhaps Pressler and Harris never knew they were even there. But yes, cool to see them nonetheless. Now I have no reason to go on this ride for a very long time.

                                      yep once you go on it and see the heads...the ride loses every ounce of what little entertainment value there is(IMO)

                                        I remember seeing the Country Bear show at DL and at WDW. It is corny but fun. I can't believe that I rode on the Pooh ride this past summer and had NO IDEA these old friends were hiding out above my head! I guess I just need to go back now! LOL!
