The Wizarding World Of Winnie The Pooh
Winnie the Pooh and his British pals will soon find a new home at "The Wizarding World of Winnie the Pooh," a new theme park planned for Walt Disney World in Florida.
Guests will be able to explore the restaurants and shops at Pigletsmeade Village (don't forget to drop by Owl's Post Office!). Visitors will also have the opportunity to take a Journey through the Forbidden Hundred Acre Woods. Here they will battle characters from "The Wind in the Willows" on "Mr. Toad's Really Wild Ride."
Spend the night at Pigletwarts Castle, a luxury hotel featuring interactive experiences and high-tech special effects! Pigletwarts Castle will be located on a mountain overlooking the rest of the park.
There's more exciting news for the Downtown Disney shopping district at Walt Disney World, too! Winnie the Pooh and friends recently started appearing as guest stars in the Cirque du Soleil show, "La Nouba."
The characters have proven to be so popular that Cirque du Soleil is planning a brand new show called "La Poohba."
Walt Disney Pictures is currently filming a re-make of Davy Crockett, starring Winnie the Pooh.
Didn't Davy Crockett kill a bear when he was three years old? Awkward!
Winnie the Pooh was smart enough to have a "Plan B" for times when he could not get acting work. Not many people know this, but Winnie the Pooh spent years studying in medical school.
Here is a rare photo of Winnie the Pooh, OB/GYN.
Dr. Pooh has delivered thousands of Steiff Teddy Bears over the years.
Like many professionals, Pooh has a wild side. When he turned 40, he got a Harley Davidson motorcycle.
Tigger and Pooh started a biker gang called "The Hundred Acre Hooligans."
One day, Christopher Robin introduced his animal friends to the music of Christopher Cross. Pooh was so taken with the song "Sailing" that it inspired him to try recreational boating.
Pooh and Eeyore enjoy frequent trips to the ocean, even though the tags sewn on to their bodies clearly state "DO NOT IMMERSE TOY IN WATER."
If you find yourself in Honolulu, Hawaii, be sure to visit "Pooh Pooh Platters," a great dining location that the silly old bear opened in 1991.
Uh-oh! Has anyone seen Luau Piglet?!? He was here earlier, with an apple in his mouth...
