Honey I Shrunk the Audience

[ Disney Vacation Planner ][WDW Home] [Animal Kingdom Attractions] [Magic Kingdom Attractions] [Epcot Attractions] [Disney MGM Studios Attractions]

At A Glance Must see attraction with 3d effect film show and some interactive components.

The Honey I Shrunk the Audience attraction at Epcot first opened on November 21, 1994, sponsored by Kodak.

The Pre-Show

Of all the pre-shows this one has to be my own personal favourite. The pre-show is held in a smallish room that slopes gently down from one end to the other (you enter at the higher end near the upper end of the side wall. There's a giant screen at the lower end, whilst all along the wall to the left of the screen (directly in front of you as you enter the room) are the doors into the main show itself.

The pre-show sequence involves a very carefully and well coreographed montage of projected photographs that fade into and out of view, overlapping each other in a continual sequence of images, while in the background the haunting melody of Cindi Lauper's "True Colours" plays.

The Main-Show

Honey I Shrunk the Audience begins as the formal presentation of the Scientist of the Year award to the guy that "shrunk the kids" and "blew up the kid". After demonstrating some of this other work there's an accident and the shinking machine gets turned on the audience.

The shows effects are excellent, and are emphasised by the clever use of 3-d imagery, viewed through some "protective safety goggles" (3-d glasses). Having said that however, there are a few suprises in store which really make this attractions one of the best in Epcot.

Be aware that there are some frightening snake and lion 3-D effects that you might want to warn your children about in advance. Also, since this is a full-sensory attraction, you'll experience more than just 3-D visuals.

Overall HISTA is an excellent attraction with a few suprises, and is well complimented by the pre-show.
