While today’s dSLR cameras can capture photos inside Peter Pan’s Flight in the Magic Kingdom, back when I had a Nikon D70, photographing the loading area was about the best I could hope for.

I remember for years bypassing this attraction thinking it was like a carnival’s funhouse ride. When my daughters where young and this was one of the few rides they could go on, I finally got to try it. Imagine my surprise at the wonderful imagery and smooth ride technology. A must-do for anyone.

For the Disney Pic of the Week on Peter Pan’s Flight.

  1. D70 is still what i used now. Solid camera. and yes, this is still one of my favorite rides. and one that has held up through the years. i think i was 8-9 when i first went on it and thought it was cool and now even as an adult it seems just as magical.

    Scott replies: I still have my D70 but I cracked the upper LCD on it a few years ago. Hard to use but did last summer when I sent the D700 in for service.

    I love the Peter Pan ride, too. Even today, it holds up with the best of the Disney rides.
