In this Album : Pooh's Hunny Hunt, Pooh Corner and all else relating to Winnie the Pooh!!!

After obtaining Fast Pass for Buzz Lightyear's Astro Blasters, we sprinted off to Fantasyland to queue up for Pooh's Hunny Hunt ride. As it was relatively early, the standby time was a mere 25 minutes.

You begin queuing in the open and when you reach “Rabbit’s house” (the indoor area), there are lots of Pooh’s story boards to keep you entertained before you hit the boarding area.

The ride vehicles are fashioned to resemble honey pots, each holding up to 5 people (although 4 is the norm), with 2 pax in front and 2 or 3 pax behind. What really amazed us was that ride vehicles have no visible (or even perceptible) means of guidance and appear to move through the attraction independently, starting, stopping, reversing direction, spinning, and generally acting as though they have a mind of their own.

From the boarding area, you board in a group of three cars. Deceptively moving together as though they were linked like a train, after rounding the first bend you find yourself stopped and watching the attraction's introductory scene, a short video of Christopher Robin giving Winnie the Pooh a balloon. The other two cars are now parked side by side as if everyone has a front row seat. The scene ends, and one by one the cars peel off into the first major room of the attraction, the Blustery Day, where Piglet flies off with the balloon.

The ride progresses through several more delightful and amazing sequences. In one scene you see Tigger bouncing by, and we felt as if we were bouncing in the hunny pot along with him literally.

In another sequence, Pooh began to dream and the ride is simulated such that you are inside Pooh’s dream, surrounded by giant Heffalumps and Woozles and spinning seemingly out of control. There are several other cars in this area with you, all choreographed to visit various parts of the room independently, stopping, starting, changing directions, and somehow magically avoiding each other.

The ride was so remarkable that we decided to go for a 2nd round. This time, we requested to be seated in the front row of the hunny pot. That gave a better view and made the 2nd ride even more exciting and interesting than the first one.

Pooh's Hunny Hunt is one of the most popular ride in Tokyo Disneyland. Definitely not to be missed!
