Why The Huge Line Up?

OK, picture this… It’s an incredibly hot and humid day in Mid July Florida – well over 100 degrees with the heat index. The sun is out and it’s a beautiful day at the Magic Kingdom. You’re in Fantasy Land, behind the castle heading towards the classic It’s a Small World (more on this ride in a week or so). All of a sudden you notice what seems to be huge queue for Peter Pan – outside – in the heat – no air conditioning. As you haven’t been on the ride since your parents took you to WDW when you were 12 (when it was ONLY Magic Kingdom!), you decide to get in line and see the attraction with your children. Hmmmm, the sign says only 20 minutes, good to go.

Snow White’s Scary Adventure, Fantasyland (extinct)

This now extinct dark ride went dark forever on May 31, 2012. This ride opened on October 1, 1971 with the grand opening of Walt Disney World. It was original designed as a first person view ride where the riders would be Snow White and see her story in first person point of view.
