Description And Comments

This is a 3-D offshoot of Disney's feature film Honey, I Shrunk the Kids. Honey, I Shrunk the Audience features an array of special effects, including simulated explosions, smoke, fiber optics, lights, water spray, and moving seats. This attraction is played strictly for laughs - a commodity that's in short supply when it comes to Epcot entertainment.

Touring Tips

Shows usually begin on the hour and half hour. Many adults report that the loud soundtrack is distracting, even uncomfortable. While Honey, I Shrunk the Audience is a huge hit, it overwhelms some preschoolers. 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 glasses in the Muppet movie at Disney's Hollywood Studios.

A Tucson, Arizona, mom tells of a similar reaction:

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, sniveling, shaking, terrified preschoolers.

Try to work the film into your touring before 10:30 a.m. The show is located to the left of Journey into Imagination; you don't have to ride in order to enter the theater. Avoid seats in the first several rows; if you're too close to the screen, the 3-D images don't focus properly.

Special Comments

Adults shouldn't be put off by the sci-fi theme. The sound level is earsplitting, frightening some young children.
