Classic Pooh

  1. There are other hidden characters here
  2. Winnie the Pooh is actually Canadian. He is originally from Montreal and was a black bear named "Winnie". The creator incorporated his nephew "Christopher" into his stories of "Winnie the Pooh."
    REPORTED: Bryna-Jayne Miller 16 SEP 99
  3. The name Winnie may have come from a black bear, but the name Pooh came from a swan. The Winnie the Pooh stories were created for Christopher Robin by his father A.A. (Alan Alexander) Milne. The areas from his stories are real places in England in the 500 acre wood in Wessex. The things like Pooh's thoughtful spot and the Poohsticks Bridge really do exist.

  4. Pooh ranks right next to Mickey Mouse as the top selling character for the Walt Disney Company
  5. Disney bought most of the rights to Pooh in 1961 from A. A> Milne's family but it wasn't until 1993 that the Walt Disney Company obtained exculsive licensing rights for Winnie-the-Pooh.
  6. Winnie-the-Pooh ranks number 4 behind the leadingBarbie as the Top Selling Licensed 'Traditional' Toys
  7. Disney's Pooh, designed in 1966, is more colorful and happier than the original Pooh
  8. Pooh is an immersive ride with lots of unnoticed special effects.
  9. Following the successful design of Walt Disney World's Pirates of the Caribbean, it will end with an exit directly into a gift shop.
  10. Paul Winchell the voice of Tigger can be heard in the attractions soundtrack singing "classic" songs such as "The Wonderful Thing About Tiggers".
  11. You ride in a bee hive and it has ride technology much like that of CTX at Animal Kingdom just slower and much more child friendly movements like when you bounce along with Tigger! The attraction lasts a good 3 minutes.

  12. On the Winnie the Pooh ride, you ride in a honey pot and the ride lasts 3 minutes and 8 seconds.
    REPORTED: Jimmy Ehasz 29 JUL 99
  13. On the Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, you ride in honeypots through various scenes from the Winnie the Pooh movie. Many special effects are incorperated onto this ride. Two noteworthy (and some say the best) effects are borrowed from the Indiana Jones ride at Disneyland.
    REPORTED: Jeff Kozlowski 18 AUG 99
  14. In one scene, you actually "bounce" with Tigger. This is done by using a motion enhanced vehicle, or MEV. The uppr part of the ride vehicle is bult like a motion simulator, like in Star Tours. This gives the "bouncing" effect.
  15. In Pooh's dream sequence, when he drifts off to sleep to have that "hefalumps and woozels" dream, the sleeping Pooh disappeares and he floats off to his dream. This is done by exactly the same effect as in the Indiana Jones "Chamber of Destiny", where an image behing some scrim (netting) is shown by using different light techniques inside the scrim. When he "disappeares" the lights turn off and a new set of lights outside the scrim project the dreaming Pooh.

  • As you exit the Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh ride and enter the gift shop, there is the distinct scent of honey in the air.
    REPORTED: JBaer 28 JAN 00
    As a cast member I can tell you that you can definitely smell honey in the gift shop of Winnie the Pooh. It's pumped in through the a/c vents.
