Description And Comments

This elaborate playground appeals particularly to kids age 10 and younger. The story is that you have been "miniaturized" and have to make your way through a yard full of 20-foot-tall blades of grass, giant ants, lawn sprinklers, and other oversize features. There are also tunnels, slides, and rope ladders to play on. All areas are padded, and Cast Members are on hand to maintain some semblance of control.

Touring Tips

While this attraction undoubtedly looked good on paper, it has problems that are hard to "miniaturize" in practice. First, it's nowhere near large enough to accommodate all the children who would like to play. Only 240 people are allowed "on the set" at a time, and many of these are supervising parents or curious adults who hopped in line without knowing what they were waiting for. Frequently by 10:30 or 11 a.m., the playground is full, with dozens waiting outside (some impatiently).

Also, kids get to play as long as parents allow. This creates uneven traffic flow and unpredictable waits. If it weren't for the third flaw, that the attraction is poorly ventilated (as hot and sticky as an Everglades swamp), there's no telling when anyone would leave.

A Tolland, Connecticut, mom found the playground exasperating:

We let the kids hang out here because we thought it would be relaxing. NOT! You have three choices here: (1) Let your kids go anywhere and hope if they try to get out without your permission someone will stop them. Also hope that someone else will help your kids if they get caught up in the exhibit. (2) Go everywhere with your kids - this takes a lot of stamina and some athleticism. If you care about appearances, this could be a problem because you look pretty stupid coming down those slides. (3) Try to visually keep track of your kids. This is impossible, so you will be either on the edge of or in the middle of an anxiety attack the whole time you're there.

On the other hand, a mom from Shawnee Mission, Kansas, loved it:

Some of the things you said to skip were our favorites (at least for the kids). We thought the playground from Honey, I Shrunk the Kids was great— definitely worth seeing.

If you visit during warmer months and want your children to experience the playground, get them in and out before 11 a.m. By late morning, this attraction is way too hot and crowded for anyone to enjoy. Access the playground via the Streets of America or Pixar Place.
