Favorite Walt Disney World 3-D Movie

I don’t know about you, but I love the 3-D attractions at Walt Disney World! I think they are so well done. I never tire of them and enjoy seeing them over and over again.

As you may have guessed from the above photo my favorite is Mickey’s PhilharMagic. What a great movie! Recently I took my 18 month old grandson to see this. I wasn’t sure that he was old enough or that I’d get him to sit and watch for that long. Well, he loved it! When it was over he looked at me and said “more”. That’s the way I feel about it. I wish it was at least five minutes longer. My second selection would have been Muppet 3-D had they not brought back Captain EO. The very first Disney 3D movie I saw was Captain EO. So seeing it again has brought back so many wonderful memories of our earlier visits to WDW. Now I do have to say that the pre-show for Muppet 3-D always makes me laugh. It’s almost as good as the 3-D movie itself. I think the special effects (water, mice, etc.) for both Honey I Shrunk The Audience and It’s Tough To Be A Bug are really good. I love hearing the screams and laughs from guests as they are startled and surprised.

    Mike,
    PhilharMagic is a must do for every trip to Disney. It is a family favorite. I love taking people to It’s Tough to be a Bug for the first time, just to watch their reactions, though it was hard to choose second place as I am a Muppets fan from waaayyy back. I can’t wait for the next Your Fav’s blog!

  3. I can’t believe noone has mentioned “Magic Journeys” that used to be at The Magic Kingdom!! A bizarre movie but very memorable (perhaps for all the wrong reasons!)
    Loving the blog Mike as ever!!

    Philharmagic takes the cake for me. The music, the characters and that larger than life viewing screen make it number one in my heart.

    Your comments: I’m going to go against the grain and say that Captain EO is my favorite–it was the first Disney 3-D movie I ever saw and was thrilled to see it back on our most recent trip. I love Philharmagic and ITTBAB. Muppets is just great nostalgia for me! I left the last space blank because I really don’t like Honey I Shrunk the Audience! I feel like the space is long over due for a new movie! I’m glad EO is back, but I hope they don’t bring back Honey when EO leaves! I really hope the new Star Tours is in 3-D!

    I’ve only seen these two. My husband took my son to It’s Tough to be a Bug and Honey I Shrunk the Audience when he was younger and he got so scared he won’t go back. So Mom hasn’t seen them. We hope to see Captain EO the next time we are at WDW.

    We do love the Muppets! My son loves the silly humor and I was a big fan of the Muppet Show in my childhood. We have gone out the exit and back in the entrance to do it all over again many times.

    Although I haven’t seen Captain EO in a very long time, I am sure my decision will be the same after we arrive in WDW in October….Honey I shrunk the Audience is, sadly, showing it’s age…..

  8. Tie for first (and only) place:

    MuppetVision and It’s Tough to be a Bug

    Comments: I just have to be a contrarian! I don’t care for PhilharMagic much, but then I am a classical musician. I was expecting something a little more Fantasia-like, where some nice music would be at least as important as the special effects. But I love the humor in the Muppets attracation and absolutely adore the bugs stampeding for the exit.

    I haven’t seen Honey I Shrunk the Audience in about 6 years. Our kids won’t go in. I am sure if we ever did get them in they would like it. However, now that Captian EO is there who know’s. Captain EO Was the first 3 D movie I ever saw at Disney. I hope they keep it there until our next trip in April. Then again my kids may not want to go it. But Disney does do a fantastic job with all there 3D.

    Your comments:Donald is my favorite so I love that he’s featured in Philharmagic. Even though it’s “Mickey’s” Philharmagic. Captain EO was one of my favorites as a kid, I can’t WAIT to see it again! Muppets definitely get best preshow. I didn’t like Shrunk the Audience (even as an adult). And I’ve never had the courage to see Tough to be a Bug. I hate bugs & I think the special effects in there would have me running & screaming. Everest, no problem. Tough to be a bug – NO WAY!

    Your comments: I guess I’m in the minority, with HISTA being my favorite. Gives a good idea why they decided to replace it. I don’t care, I liked it anyway! I haven’t seen Captain EO yet, so I had to leave that off the list.

    We LOVE Philharmagic and every time my daughter sees it she tries to catch the pie as it’s coming at us. It’s hilarious and this year her little sister who is a year and a half old tried it too. It’s as entertaining to watch them as the show is. It’s a Bugs Life is also fun because my daughter jumps and squirms when they “run” behind us.

    Your comments:
    Philharmagic and It’s Tough to be a Bug take 3D movies to the next level. You just can’t beat smell-o-vision! I adore the Muppets and been a fan since I was a young child. I still crack up at the same jokes I’ve heard over and over again at that movie. And you’re right, Mike, the pre-show is hilarious. If the category was only for pre-shows, the Muppets have it hands down.

  17. Ooops, I submitted my list without putting my name or email above. Shame on me. I was just so excited about this question. If you can find my entry (stating that I wish there were more of these shows), please use it instead. Thanks!

    Your comments: Mickey’s Philharmagic is on my list of top attractions in all of WDW. It’s done so well and my boyfriend and I love watching everyone, young and old, reach out to touch the jewels flying at you. The smell of pie is just to die for. I remember my first time experiencing ITTBAB back in 1998, the first year it opened along with DAK. It was SOOO scared at the bees stinging and the bugs leaving before you at the end (I was 14 then). The first time I took my boyfriend to WDW in April 2009 I didn’t tell him about all the effects and since I knew they were coming, I wasn’t scared anymore! haha Muppets is really cute but definitely needs an update. That said, it’s still something we like to do every trip to the World. HISTA probably won’t be visited my us until it is updated. Unfortunately, I’ve never seen Captain EO.

    Your comments: One of my absolute favorite attractions in MK is PhilharMagic so choosing #1 was easy! I like ITTBAB mostly because of the audience’s reactions. HISTA was getting a little old, so seeing Captain EO was a nice change.

    I have never see EO, but look forward to seeing it next week!!! As for Honey I
    Shrunk the Audience, didn’t like it at all.
    Muppets 3-D beat out Philharmagic in my book becuase of the hilarious pre-show
    and all the details in the pre-show area that are amazing themselves on their
    own.

  24. Hey!
    I luv your blog. 🙂
    I was sitting playing solitaire with my disney world theme cards and had an idea for a blog topic you can do. (just an idea).

    Every year my mom and I have been going down to Diseny (Since 05) and every year I make sure i get another beach towel. (Weird collector item… lol) anyway, i was thinking you can do a blog on what people have in mind to get at the world every year to add to a collection…other then pins that is.

    Nothing beats the one-liners from the Muppets, even the pre-show is great. I actually look forward to standing in line and waiting for the actual show just so I can watch the whole pre-show.

    MuppetVision 3-D is awesome to me. The humor is really great. I admire that it is the last project of Jim Henson, just like Pirates of the Caribbean was Walt Disney’s last project.

    Mickey’s PhilharMagic is awesome. The theater, the huge screen, the simplicity, and the music put together a great show.

    I hate HISTA. It’s how Disney once tried to capitalize on a once-popular franchise by ruining an EPCOT Center pavilion. The pre-show is nothing but a glorified PowerPoint presentation. It’s so dated, it can’t even be considered a classic. And, it’s too intense for my liking- there are more screams in that theater when the mice run around than on an entire ride cycle of Tower of Terror.

    I love Mickey’s Philharmagic. The magic carpet scene always makes me a bit dizzy.
    The muppets get second place because of the pre-show waiting area. I have a great time looking at the props and gags.
    It’s tough to be a bug is fun, especially at the end when the bugs leave.
    I have not yet seen Captain EO and I did not care for Honey I Shrunk the Audience so I left them off the list.

    Hi Mike,
    My husband and I love the Muppets! We saw the first stage show they had before the 3D version and both were great!This attraction is a MUST every time we visit.

    At the AK we love to watch the people react at It’s Tough to be a Bug.

    We saw Captain EO when it first started so I have forgotten about it so we will be making a Dec trip this year and we will have to go to refresh our memory.

    Have a happy day,

    I haven’t seen Captain EO yet, or at least i don’t think so. I might have seen it lonng time ago in 96. If it wasn’t around then, then I’d never seen it. But i plan to see it in November of this year if it is still playing.

    I haven’t seen Captain EO (yet)…my first visit to the world was in 1996 and was the first time I saw “Honey..”.
    If my plans go as I wish, next year I’ll be in the first line to see Captain EO.

    I had a really hard time deciding between Muppet #D and Mickey’s Philharmagic for the #1 spot, but the Muppets ultimately won out for: the pre-show and the hilarious script that never gets old. I also had a tough time giving the #3 spot to either the Bug or Honey I Shrunk. The Bug took 3rd place over HISTA completely because of the queue area through the Tree of Life and the theater.

    Philharmagic, to me, seems to have the best 3D and I also really like the classic feel of the whole thing.

    The Muppets are some of my favorite characters of all time. The first three Muppet movies are still great to me, as well.

    Captain EO is fun, just because of the memories I have of it as a kid.
