Since the first version opened with Disneyland in July of 1955, Peter Pan’s Flight has been one of the most popular attractions in Disney’s portfolio. That continues today, as the ride has been replicated at most Disney resorts around the world, including being an opening day attraction at Disney World. To this day, the ride often has the second-highest average wait time in the park, behind only Seven Dwarfs Mine Train.

Peter Pan’s Flight

Peter Pan’s Flight will be closing for about a month and a half, beginning on July 8th with a scheduled reopening of August 21st. While Disney has not made any specific comment on the ride’s downtime, a construction permit was filed by Disney Imagineering in May. Generally, these types of permits are reserved for elements that guests will be able to see. The contractor for the project is InterAmerica Stage, Inc., which specializes in stage rigging and machinery, further pointing to work on guest-facing elements of the ride.

Peter Pan

Peter Pan’s Flight features some of the most well-known set pieces in any Disney attraction, including the pirate galleon ride vehicles soaring over a massive model of London, where Big Ben and Tower Bridge light up the night sky. From there, there’s the well-known descent into Never Land, with its glowing volcanoes and sparkling waterfalls, before encountering Captain Hook.

The closure of Peter Pans Flight for most of July and August is the highest-profile refurbishment happening at Walt Disney World during this period, but not the only one. Test Track is also closed for a long-term refurbishment at EPCOT, while work continues on replacing the Voyage of The Little Mermaid show at Hollywood Studios with the new The Little Mermaid – A Musical Adventure.

Peter Pan’s Flight, one of the Magic Kingdom’s premier attractions — at least as far as wait times go — is going to be closed for the majority of the summer. Stay tuned to DFB for further coverage of Walt Disney World ride closures and refurbishments.
