Winnie the Pooh and Friends are classic favorites and you may be wondering where to find them when you're on vacation at the Walt Disney World Resort and Theme Parks in Orlando, FL. This article will give you all the information for finding Winnie the Pooh at Magic Kingdom, Epcot and at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort; these characters do not currently appear at Disney's Animal Kingdom, and Disney's Hollywood Studios.
Winnie the Pooh & Friends in the Magic Kingdom
The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh is a very sweet and gentle ride in the Fantasyland area of the Magic Kingdom. It features scenes from the classic Winnie the Pooh adventures. There is a Winnie the Pooh themed gift shop at the end of this ride. You’ll see Pooh, Owl, Kanga, Baby Roo, Tigger, Eeyore, and Rabit. This ride is very popular and FASTPASS tickets are available.
Trivia: This was the Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride until September 1998. You have to look for it but there is spot on the ride where there is a picture of Mr. Toad handing the deed over to Owl.
Winnie the Pooh themed souvenirs can be purchased in the Hundred Acre Goods (formerly called “Pooh’s Thotful Shop”) near “The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh” attraction.
Winnie the Pooh and Friends meet & greets often available in the Fantasyland area of the Magic Kingdom. Check the Magic Kingdom Times Guide, available with the park maps near the front of the park, for exact times during your visit.
Character Breakfast / Lunch / Dinner at the Crystal Palace. This buffet-style restuarant has food that is better than most of the food you find in the Magic Kingdom. Pooh, Tigger, Eeyore, and Piglet go from table to table giving hugs, signing autographs, and posing for pictures.
Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party (special seasonal event) – A Costumed pooh is sometimes available for photos and autographs. The “Boo To You” parade is offered twice during the party and features Tigger, Piglet, Pooh, and Eeyore in costumes walking ahead of a float that has Kanga & Roo with Rabbit.
Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party (special seasonal event) – The “Once Upon A Christmas” parade is offered twice during the party and features Tigger, Plglet, Pooh, and Eeyore in holiday garb walking ahead of a float that has Kanga & Roo with Rabbit. This event happens on select nights in November and December and a special ticket is required. This parade is often presented during the day from just before Christmas through New Years.
Note: “Pooh’s Playful Spot”, a Winnie the Pooh themed play area for small children, closed in April 2010 to make way for the big Fantasyland Expansion. Parts of this area were incorporated into the interactive area at the entrance of “The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh”.
