Honey, I Shrunk the Audience

This attraction is permanently closed. This page is retained here for historical interest.

This interactive movie replaced the Michael Jackson film Captain EO. The 3-D film continues the characters from the Honey… series of movies. Rick Moranis works at the Imagination Institute and has invented a machine that miniaturizes things. Of course, the demonstration goes horribly awry and the entire audience is miniaturized. In addition to the three dimensional visual effects, the theater is rigged to make noices, poke audience members, and even run rodents across your feet.

History and Trivia - Hide Section
  • At this location: This area of Tomorrowland was first put into use in 1961, though you'd never recognize it. At that time, the Flying Saucers attraction opened. Flying Saucers was a high-tech version of bumper cars as riders moved around on air cushions. The saucers never worked as well as hoped and the ride only lasted five years and with the New Tomorrowland of 1967 the area was converted into the Tomorrowland Stage, a 1,100 seat outdoor theater that played host to many acts and performers over the years. When Space Mountain opened in 1977, the stage was renamed Space Stage and built into the base of the mountain. In 1985, Space Stage closed for construction of the Magic Eye Theater, to be home for the new Michael Jackson 3-D film Captain EO. The theater opened before the film was ready and initially showed the Magic Journeys film from Walt Disney World and Captain EO moved in later that year. After a bit more than 10 years, the film was quietly pulled as part of the New Tomorrowland redesign and the theater closed to reopen as Honey, I Shrunk the Audience.
  • The Attraction's History: So far, Honey, I Shrunk the Audience is aging better than did Captain EO and remains unchanged since it debuted.
