Interactive Queue At Peter Pan’s Flight Does It Right

Regardless of how you feel about Disney’s FastPass Plus service, one thing I think we can all agree on is these new interactive queues are incredible.

As more guests are now using the Disney’s free FastPass service, the company is also trying to make waiting in line less stressful and is by far, leading the way in the industry in this initiative.

The fact is, elaborate queues doesn’t drive ticket sales. No one is going to buy a ticket to the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World just to say they waited in line for Peter Pan’s Flight. However, one of the longest lines in the park is now not only bearable, it’s actually worth waiting in line for.

Considering the hourly capacity for Peter Pan’s Flight is right around 700 guests an hour, the line has always been slow and crawls forward at a snail’s pace.

Unfortunately, when you add FastPass to the mix, that pace goes even slower as guests who have reserved the attraction in advance get priority.

Now if you’ve reserved a FastPass for Peter Pan’s Flight and don’t go through the standby line? You’re truly missing out.

The queue begins with portraits of the film down a long hallway as a gentle reminder of scenes from “Peter Pan”.

As you round the corner, you find yourself in London just on the doorstep of the Darling residence.  Naturally, the front door is open and we head down a hallway headed for the children’s nursery.

The nursery is absolutely incredible.  Not only are John and Michael’s bed represented exactly as they are in the film, the giant window sits directly across with a view of London.

Through the use of projection mapping, Tinkerbell flies around the boy’s beds knocking some things out of place in her path.

The centerpiece of the room is an interactive wall which allows guests to see a virtual shadow of themselves projected where they can interact with shadows of butterflies, bells and more. It’s quite impressive to see and often guests stop and play for a while and don’t even realize the line has continued moving.

Finally, as you exit the nursery, Tinkerbell flies through and dusts everyone via a fairly clever use of projections.

Not only dooes the new queue look impressive and make waiting in one of the longest lines far more bearable, it sets stage for what guests are about to experience aboard their flying pirate ships.

In the case of this new queue, it genuinely enhances the attraction. You have to see it for yourself the next time you find yourself in the Magic Kingdom.  Meanwhile, check out the video below for a quick preview.
