On this day in 2005, Pooh's Playful Spot (a play area for 2-5 year-olds) opened on the site of the former 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea at Disney World's Magic Kingdom.
Located across from Fantasyland's The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, the Playful Spot featured a large tree which housed Pooh's home for young ones to explore. Themed after the Hundred Acre Wood, it also included spurting fountains of water, crawl-through logs, huge honey pots, and a slide.
Due to the Fantasyland expansion, Pooh's Playful spot closed in April 2010 and the iconic tree from the playground was moved into the queue area of The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh.
