So funny! Genius!, 9 September 2006
Author: lionkingluvr from United States

This was a great show that was at Disney's MGM Studios theme park in Orlando, FL. No matter how many times I saw it, it always made me laugh! It takes Robin Williams and puts him into a fictional Peter Pan sequel called "Back to Neverland" as one of the lost boys. One of my favorite parts is when Robin says he wants to be in a Peter Pan Sequel called "Peter Pan First Blood" co-starring Jack Nicholson. It was so entertaining and well written! I was very upset when they took the film out, it was a highlight of the park! I'm sure anyone who saw it would agree that this was a great film that the whole family could enjoy, and hopefully someday Disney will use it in their parks again!
