This is worth a visit. The three short 3-D films are fun.
One is Get A Horse, a vintage Mickey Mouse cartoon that cleverly transitions back and forth between black and white and color. (Walt Disney actually provides the voice of Mickey Mouse.) The second is Feast, a heartwarming animated film about a Boston terrier with a passion for "people food", his master and a love interest. The third is Piper, a cute film about a hungry baby sandpiper bird who has to overcome his fear of the ocean. These are the films showing as of January, 2019. From what I understand, they will rotate but I don't know when that will be.
I wouldn't bother with a Fastpass for this attraction. You all usually wind up waiting (and standing) in the same pre-show area anyway. The theater is good-sized and holds a large number of guests. Suitable for all ages. Kids and adults will love the animation.
It's a nice seated break from all the walking, and cool and comfortable on a hot day.
Pros:Cute vintage and newer animated short films. Suitable for everyone. Nice to take a break from walking. Cool and comfy theater.
Cons:If you happen to arrive when the theater doors have just closed and you have to wait for the next showing, there is no seating in the pre-show area. There's some sort of entertainment to watch on elevated TV screens, but it's a long and uninteresting 17-20 minute wait.
