Peter Pan

Peter Pan is the lead character from Walt Disney's 1953 animated classic 'Peter Pan.' He has been a staple in the Walt Disney Company for years. He can be seen in films such as 'Mickey's Magical Christmas: Snowed in at the House of Mouse,' 'Return to Never Land,' and he even had a cameo in 'The Lion King 1 '.' As for TV shows he was mainly seen in 'House of Mouse,' but recently has been seen on the hit Disney Junior show 'Jake and the Never Land Pirates.' Peter can be found in a great list of Disney video games such as the Kingdom Hearts series, Kinect Disneyland Adventures, Disney's Villains Revenge, Disney Universe, Return to Never Land, and Peter Pan: Adventures in Never Land. He is such a well known character that he can be found in other merchandise such as books, food items, games, artwork, toys, clothing, pins, and Vinylmations to name a few.

He is the head of the Lost Boys, and he hails from Never Land where there is no growing up allowed. Peter has many friends that help him with his adventures such as Wendy, John, and Michael Darling, Tinker Bell, The Lost Boys, Tiger Lily, Wendy's daughter Jane, and all the Disney characters that want good. His enemies include Captain Hook, the Pirate crew, Mr. Smee, and the rest of the Disney villains.

Peter is a very brave soul. He helps people in need and loves having many different adventures. His outfit is a sleek and simple outfit but it really fits him well. He wears a green shirt, with green tights, brown shoes, a green hat with a red feather in it. His weapon of choice is a small dagger and he doesn't believe in guns. The coolest attribute about Peter is that he can fly with just a little pixie dust; let's be honest who wouldn't want to be able to fly.

He was drawn by the fantastic artist Milt Kahl who has animated a number of different top characters. Milt was part of Disney's Nine Old Men. Peter Pan has been voiced by a few different people over the years such as Bobby Driscoll, Chris Steele, Adam Wylie, and Blayne Weaver.

*FUN FACT* 'The Second Star to the Right' was written for the film 'Alice in Wonderland' but Disney decided it would be better suited for 'Peter Pan'.

Peter Pan can be found throughout Disney parks and Disney Cruise Ships around the world as a meet and greet character. You can also find him in Fantasmic!, Peter Pan's Flight (which by the way will be getting a interactive queue in the sometime near future), Dream Along With Mickey castle show, Mickey's Soundsational Parade, Mickey's Philharmagic, It's a Small World, Main Street Electrical Parade, SpectroMagic Parade, Celebrate a Dreams Come True Parade, Disney's Once Upon a Dream Parade, and you can also find him during the Halloween and Christmas parties at the Magic Kingdom. He can also be seen during Disney on Ice shows.
