Description And Comments
Honey, I Shrunk the Audience is a 3-D offshoot of Disney's feature film, Honey, I Shrunk the Kids. Honey, I Shrunk the Audience features a stupefying array of special effects, including simulated explosions, smoke, fiber optics, lights, water spray, and even moving seats. Clever, frenetic, and uproarious, Honey, I Shrunk the Audience is, in our opinion, the best theater attraction in the Disney repertoire. We rate it as not to be missed.
The audio level is earsplitting in this theater. Small children are sometimes frightened by the sound volume, and many adults report that the loud soundtrack is distracting and even uncomfortable. While Honey, I Shrunk the Audience is a huge hit, it overwhelms children as old as 7 or 8. A dad from Lexington, South Carolina, writes:
Honey, I Shrunk the Audience is too intense for kids. Our 4-year-old took off his [3-D] glasses five minutes into the movie. Because of this experience, he would not wear the glasses in the Muppet movie.
An Arizona mom agrees, offering this report:
Our 3- and 4-year-olds loved all the rides. They giggled through Thunder Mountain three times, squealed with delight on Splash Mountain, thought Space Mountain was the coolest, and begged to ride Star Tours over and over. They even "fought ghosts" at The Haunted Mansion. But Honey, I Shrunk the Audience dissolved them into sobbing, shaking, terrified preschoolers.
Honey, I Shrunk the Audience is an exceptionally popular attraction. Try to work the production into your touring schedule before 11:00 a.m. or in the late afternoon or evening. The theater is large, so don't be intimidated if the line is long. Finally, try to avoid seats in the first several rows. If you are too close to the screen, the 3-D images do not focus properly.
An absolute hoot! Not to be missed; routinely freaks out kids age 8 and under.
