Honey I Shrunk the Audience – Ended May 9, 2010 for the return of Captain EO

HISTA SignThis is, without a doubt, one of the most creative 3-D movies of the late 1990s.

The pre-show area is standing only and the floor slants downward (10-15 degree slope). Watch TV monitors explain what you are about to experience.

Based on the enormously popular Walt Disney Pictures — “Honey, I Shrunk The Kids” (1989), “Honey, I Blew Up The Kid” (1992), and the follow-up “Honey We Shrunk Ourselves” (1997) — the performance “on stage” at the Imagination Institute Auditorium features the original Szalinski film family: the invention-happy professor, his trusting wife, Diane, their sons, Nick and Adam, and their frisky dog, Quark. As in the films, Wayne Szalinski is portrayed by comedic actor Rick Moranis.Honey I Shrunk the Audience” brings together all the special effects of the Szalinski movies but in 3D

The 20-minute misadventure follows the likes of Professor Wayne Szalinski.Professor Szalinski is about to accept the Inventor of the Year Award, however, he had a little mishap with the remote for his hoverpod and he’s flying out of control around the Institute. As part of the award ceremony, Professor Szalinski will demonstrate his Dimensional Duplicator and Incredible Shrinking Machine. You too will be shrunk as part of the misdirected laser beam. There are some super special effects, including feeling the wind from the hoverpod when the Professor flies into the theater. It was a VERY realistic 3-D motion picture. If you do not like SNAKES, LIONS, or MICE, then you may not want to see this movie. Parts of this movie are VERY loud and may scare young children.

Returning from a 16 year hiatus, Captain EO began playing in Epcot’s Imagination Pavilion. On June 30, 2010 cast members and members of the media were treated to preview of Captain EO. On July 2, 2010, the attraction officially reopened to guests.
