This is not what Disney needed…

One of the most beloved attractions at the Magic Kingdom Park in Walt Disney World Resort is Peter Pan’s Flight. This enchanting ride allows guests to soar above the lands of Neverland alongside Peter Pan, the mischievous boy who never grows up. As one of the original attractions at Walt Disney World Resort, Peter Pan’s Flight continues to captivate visitors with its magical storytelling and immersive experience.

Unfortunately, it was also the alleged sight of a young Guest’s injury this past May.

Injury at Magic Kingdom

Peter Pan’s Flight debuted in 1971 with the opening of Magic Kingdom, becoming an instant success among Disney enthusiasts. Inspired by Walt Disney’s classic animated film, “Peter Pan,” this attraction takes riders on a whimsical journey through scenes from the movie, allowing them to relive their favorite moments from the story. The ride is a popular choice for families visiting the Park due to its calm nature and slow-moving ride vehicle.

Unfortunately for New Jersey man Daniel Blanco and his son, their ride was anything but relaxing. Blanco has alleged that his son sustained injuries while riding the attraction on May 18, 2023. The lawsuit, which was filed in the Orange County Circuit Court, states;

“When the ride operator announced it would be starting back up, the ride jerked and slammed Plaintiff’s head into the ride carriage. The whiplash was not a part of the normal ride; it was a malfunction and caused Plaintiff severe and permanent injuries.”

Another Lawsuit for the Walt Disney Company

Unfortunately, this is not the only lawsuit that Disney has faced this year from Guests. Not long ago, a woman filed her own lawsuit after she was allegedly shut between the doors of Disney’s Monorail.

It is clear from all accounts that Disney probably wishes for the lawsuits to come to an end once and for all.
