It's Tough to Be a Bug!

Hidden away inside the Tree of Life, this show may have one of the more interesting homes for any show or attractin at Disney World. It's Tough to Be a Bug! combines a 3D movie with effects inside the theater for a film that explores some of the difficulties of being so small. The show may be too intense for young children (or anybody with a fear of insects), but as with most such films it is interesting to see once, though perhaps not more than that.
