Peter Pan’s Flight takes Guests right into Walt Disney’s classic 1953 animated film, Peter Pan. Passengers board a colorful galleon and sail high into the London sky, glimpsing the Darling children’s nursery, flitting past Big Ben and Tower Bridge, veering toward the second star to the left, then straight on till morning.
The ship descends into Never Land, in sight of volcanic peaks and sparkly waterfalls, around Mermaid Lagoon and past Skull Rock, amid the Lost Boys mission, and right into Pan and Hook’s dramatic duel. As the journey draws to an end, we know that all is well, because “Hook is a codfish!” or is, at least, crocodile bait.
Look up! The weather van atop the Peter Pan’s Flight attraction was made to look like the pirate ship from the film Peter Pan. Weather vanes, in general, are instruments for showing the direction of the wind. Most are ornamental and usually include directional letters for north, south, east, and west.
Today, follow this tutorial from WikiHow to create either a decorative paper wind vane or a permanent wooden one. For the paper design, you will need paper, a straw, a straight pin, and a small, lidded container filled with stones. The wooden one requires either a precut arrow or an adult’s assistance to skillfully cut one out from wood, as well as a dowel and a wooden base.
