11. Disney and PIXAR Short Film Festival
This 18-minute presentation takes place in the Magic Eye Theater, and Guests will appreciate it very much, especially if they are fans of the magic of animation. Before heading to the auditorium, Guests are led in a pre-show room. A short video is shown with host John Lasseter—Chief Creative Officer of PIXAR and Disney Animation Studios. Lasseter gives Guests a brief snapshot of the processes it takes to create an animated picture. Then Guests are invited to take a seat in the auditorium. I’ll admit—the first time I enjoyed this attraction, I thought it was simply a viewing of some Disney/PIXAR shorts. I was pleasantly surprised to find that rather than this being a simple screening of three animated shorts, it is a 4D experience that immerses Guests in the animation of three Disney and PIXAR shorts. Theater effects are used (the floor even moves!) to bring these animated shorts to vibrant life! FastPass+ service is offered, but you probably won’t need one for this attraction because the auditorium seats a very large group of people.
