Shrunk the Kids Movie Set
This attraction will close permanentaly on April 2, 2016 to make way for new
With a few
quick steps and a little movie magic, Mom, Dad and the kids "shrink" to the
size of an ant and enter a film set wonderland of mammoth proportions in the
"Honey, I Shrunk the Kids" Movie Set Adventure at Disney's Hollywood Studios in Walt
Disney World Resort.
Based on the hit Walt Disney Pictures film, "Honey, I Shrunk the Kids," the
studios attraction is every child's film fantasy come true, an exciting
hands-on playground where kids can explore and let off steam. In the movie,
the young heroes are shrunk by accident and wind up trekking through a
jungle of giant grass where awesome insects lurk. At the Movie Set
Adventure, a thicket of grass is 30 feet tall, a larger-than-life experience
where mushroom caps are three stories tall and a friendly "ant" is suitable
to sit upon.
Located near Streets of America on the Disney's Hollywood Studios backlot, the Movie
Set Adventure promises 11,000 square feet of freewheeling fun.
As guests enter the set through a maze of dirt clods and rock, their
imaginations run wild as they discover they're "shrunk" and surrounded by an
adventure world of excitement. Backyard sounds are everywhere, from the buzz
of a giant bee to the chirp of crickets and the steady sniffing of a dog's
nose in the grass.
Straight from the hit movie is a 16-foot-tall building block, a giant cream
cookie and a garden hose that's 52 feet long, complete with major leaks.
An area set aside for little tykes features a spider web climber and cocoon,
a root maze with a flower petal slide, a mini-waterfall cascading from a
leaf for cooling off and a dell of fern sprouts (some trimmed to form a
stairway where sounds and musical notes are produced by guests as they step
from sprout to sprout).
The tree stump slides are a focal point of the set, along with the giant
mushroom mound that boasts three levels of tunnels interconnected by an
internal spiral staircase. Geared towards the more adventurous is a huge
spider web that features 11 levels of webs three stories high.
Nearby is the giant Kodak film can. Young explorers can climb inside,
experience the echoes and escape on a slide down the film strip itself.
"Honey, I Shrunk the Kids" Movie Set Adventure is designed by Walt Disney
Imagineering, the creative design, engineering, production and
project-management subsidiary of The Walt Disney Co.
