If Neverland is imaginary, how did Peter Pan get there? He took the second star to the right, straight on until morning. While the 1953 movie Peter Pan has Neverland as being somewhere in outer space, possibly a planet, “the real world” is referred to as “The Mainland”. Is Neverland a gigantic island?
I vote for Neverland as being somewhere in outer space, given the fact that “there are many more suns and moons” that revolve around Neverland, making time extremely difficult to track. So let’s jump on the wind’s back, and away we go!!!
Although Captain Hook and crocodiles have been phased out a bit, (see Tic Tock Croc) and there are no stars to guide you to Peter Pan’s flight in Disney, it’s one of the best rides for young ish kids in the Magic Kingdom. Keep in mind that it might be slightly scary as you are flying through the dark. Hold onto your kids tightly. Definitely worth a fast pass.
I really wish that Disney could have a Peter Pan meet and greet/character fast pass. Tinkerbell has spiraled off onto her own famous planet, read all about her here. Why has Peter been left out in the cold? Is it because he isn’t a princess? He deserves his own clubhouse. He was born in 1902, after all.
Peter can sometimes be found hanging out by his flight in the Magic Kingdom. Another great place to look for him is near the refreshment corner on Main Street. Some of the Peter Pan actors have become semi celebrities – click here to see them on tumblr.
So going back to the star on the right. Once you get there, and find yourself able to focus hard on battling straight on through until morning, what will you find? Will you stop aging? Lose your marbles? Would you like an adventure right away, or would you like your tea first?
Remember: The moment you doubt that you are able to fly, you cease forever to be able to do it. So don’t doubt yourself. Your marbles are right where you left them, think happy thoughts.
