    Name that attraction..

    I don't even know what made me think of this, but for some reason I can not remember an attraction that I believe is at MK or EPCOT. An I know someone here must be able to help. It had Walter Cronkite as a host and Robin Williams was an animated character. All I remember is at one point Robin was one of the lost boys form Peter Pan.

    Can anybody tell me more about it?

    That is a little AA show at the Grand Monkey in WDW. I saw it a couple years ago and it was definitely something else! Only problem is, I had some video footage from the show, but when I looked in my desk for it, it was gone. I thought now this is really weird, but then I realized, hey, I've never even been to Orlando!

    That was the animation tour in MGM. It has since been changed to feature Mushu and a live host. I loved it when it was Robin Williams and Walter Cronkite myself.

    Oh was that it, thanks! For some reason I had myself convinced that it was not at D-MGM.

    The show was called "return to neverland," and was one of the highlights for me of the animation tour. It's never been the same since they took that out, and all the animators.

    The film was indeed part of the Animation attraction at Disney-MGM Stuido Theme Park in Florida. But it was called, "Back To Neverland" (not "Return to Neverland" )

    It also played for a brief stint at the Animation attraction at California Adventure.

    Believe it or not, it was produced outside of the Disney company (including the animation!) under contract, by the talented folks at BRC Imagination Arts. See:

    I've got many friends over there at their Burbank office.

    I love Robin Williams and always loved watching this when I visited MGM. Such a shame it's gone now.
