    Disney Attractions on IMDB

    We all know that the Internet Movie DataBase (IMDB) is a great resource for looking up movies and actors. But did you know that several Disney attractions are also featured?

    Now, as one would expect, the attractions featured on the IMDB are ones that are mostly film-based, such as Star Tours and Honey I Shrunk the Audience. Many of the actors are listed, such as the man that ducks under his desk once your Star Speeder 3000 comes racing in on Star Tours.

    Here's a list of some attractions you can find on the IMDB:

    ^ Nope. HISTA took over Captain EO in EPCOT. Just like how HISTA took over Captain EO in DL.

    Were there any special effects in the attraction's theater during the 3D presentation? Like any lasers? I barely remember this attraction and I was always freaked out when the when the supreme leader extended her nails at the audience. Of course, I was just a little kid then.

    Re: Disney Attractions on IMDB

    Wow, cool, very good research! I'd seen some Disney attractions on IMDB before but I didn't research all of them.

    It would be nice if some of them, at least the discontinued ones like Captain EO, were available on DVD, maybe as part of a Disney Treasures package. Obviously it wouldn't be able to replicate the whole experience of the attractions themselves, but they're worthwhile films that deserve preservation, for historical reasons if nothing else.

    Atleast I was not the only one. I LOVED the floating rock that came out at you at the very beginning of the film.

    ^ There was a floating rock? HAHA. That shows how much I remember. I do remember stuff floating around though. I think I was reaching for that rock all the time...

    Interesting to say that HISTA with 408 votes has a 7.4/10 rating. While Captain EO with 644 votes has a 5.7/10 rating...

    Just pointing that out...

    Actually, Captain EO is available on DVD (not officially of course). If you check eBay there's usually a few copies available. The Captain EO audio you can find online is actually taken from these DVDs. The DVDs aren't in 3D of course; but it's better then nothing.

    Re: Disney Attractions on IMDB

    Universal released the Shrek 4D film on DVD. I forgot if it was with Shrek or Shrek 2. Anyways, the point is, it's been done offically. So I'm sure Disney could release Captain EO and other 3D films in 2D. I'd rather see the 3D film in 2D. Not sure why Universal decided to release Shrek 4D on DVD when it's still playing in their parks. Maybe to somehow advertise it?!?!?!?!?!

    It would be really cool if Disney put Captain EO, HISTA, etc etc in a DVD set.
