About the attraction

In the first picture you can see the ride itself. Depending on the size of the guests in your party, each emotion mover may seat 4-6.

You may remember this ride as Flik’s Fliers from the exterminated Bugsland.

For guests who do not wish to ride or that just want a place to people watch, the stone benches next to the ride are a wonderful addition to the pier.

If you are using DAS, follow the instructions given to you from Guest Relations.

Guests using a mobility aid may take it to the emotion mover. Once you have transferred into the ride vehicle a cast member will then move it out of the way. Your mobility aid will be waiting by the exit gate. If you need it to transfer out of the ride vehicle, just inform the cast member and they will bring it to you.

The Queue

Be sure to look up from your phone while going through the queue or you will miss adorable signs like the ones pictured.

The queue is partly shaded and is ADA compliant. We had no issues pushing a wheelchair through it.
