Hang on to your seats and hang on to your hats! Nothing-but nothing you hear or read about Honey, I Shrunk the Audience can prepare you for the visual surprises, sensory shocks and physical effects that literally jump off the screen and rock the theater. The response from deliriously happy people exiting the film is unanimous: "Incredible!" "Fantastic!" "Unbelievable!" "Scary!" Eventually, we hear the highest praise of all: "The best 3-D experience ever!" Honey is definitely a hit.
The dual 70mm 3-D film opened in late November, 1994, at the Kodak-sponsored Journey Into Imagination, one of nine pavilions that make up Future World at Walt Disney's EPCOT '95 in Florida. It follows in the footsteps of two other Disney hits, Captain EO and Magic Journeys, which played in the same theater.
Based on the enormously popular Walt Disney full-length features Honey, I Shrunk the Kids and Honey, I Blew Up the Kid, this high-tech 3-D misadventure continues the antics of eccentric (nutty?) scientist/inventor Professor Wayne Sza-linski, played by Rick Moranis. (No pictures of Moranis could accompany this article. A contractual agreement prevents Disney from using his name or image in promotional materials for the film.) The big difference here is that Honey, I Shrunk the Audience is not a feature film but a theme park attraction, combining a uniquely staged 23-minute motion picture with elaborate in-theater effects.
