Right this moment is Disney+ Day and the celebration of the streaming service’s second birthday has introduced with it a variety of cool stuff. A bunch of recent content material has arrived on Disney+ itself, a large variety of the service’s upcoming content material has been teased, and even the theme parks have been getting in on the motion. However among the mnaterial added at present to the Disney+ library really makes me marvel if a change is on the horizon for a theme park attraction at Walt Disney World.
Walt Disney World’s Epcot has a theater, the Magic Eye Theater, that’s presently the house of the Disney & Pixar Quick Movie Competition. Visitors get to look at three animated shorts, which embody Pixar’s Piper and Disney’s Feast and Get a Horse. The Pixar quick has been out there on Disney+ for a while, however the two Disney shorts had been a part of at present’s Disney+ Day content material drop, which means now all three of the shorts you possibly can see at Epcot might be discovered on Disney+.
Contemplating meaning you could now watch all of the shorts within the Quick Movie Competition in your cellphone when you’re ready in line for the Quick Movie Competition, there isn’t essentially a purpose to take the time to look at the shorts after you’ve spent the cash to be inside Epcot for the day, so maybe that implies that the Epcot theater is due for a refresh.
It’s clear that to some extent the Magic Eye theater in Epcot has been in a holding sample for a number of years already. When Epcot first opened, the theater was used for an authentic present referred to as Magic Journeys. That present was finally changed by Michael Jackson’s Captain EO, after which by Honey, I Shrunk the Viewers. Captain EO returned to the theater in 2010 as a tribute after the demise of Michael Jackson.
The Disney & Pixar Quick Movie Competition took up residence on the finish of 2015 and has been there since. They’re achieved as 4D exhibits, with 3D visuals and different results, so there’s something extra than simply the quick itself, however I don’t really feel like that’s sufficient of a draw to get individuals to see the identical shorts they will see at residence.
It looks like the truth that two of those shorts haven’t been on Disney+ earlier than could also be as a result of they had been a draw at Epcot. Now that they’re not, possibly we’ll see some modifications. There are definitely different shorts that also aren’t on Disney+ that might transfer in. Or possibly there’s hope for a brand new authentic present.
No matter occurs, the Epcot theater is due for a change of some sort, much more so after Disney+ Day, so I wouldn’t be stunned to see that occur someday very quickly.
