Visited today. Anyone noticed the sprung / actuated audience seating is static once again?

Sad, sad, sad Imagination Pavilion. Would someone just bulldoze that place already so we aren't reminded of how dynamic is once was.

Oh that should make Feast top notch then, with all of the scents of the food.

Yes they use the full capability.

Princess LeiaJun 19, 2017

Since the theater had previously been used for 4D shows (at least, I'm pretty sure HISTA was 4D), do the short films use the full capability of the theater as well? Or are they only 3D?

Get a Horse is some of the best 3D I have ever seen! I hadn't been it the theater since the original EO, so I had to take my glasses off to see if there was really a stage. The other original shorts were great, but not really enhanced much by 3D, especially after Get a Horse. However, La Luna is a personal fave. I hope this new update includes other films that will benefit from the use of 3D, better than the previous two films.

Love the new lineup with Feast and Piper =) Those are both great shorts! What a fun attraction!

Princess LeiaJun 19, 2017

The trio of Feast, Piper, and Get a Horse is a pretty solid lineup. All are unique, and showcase different types of animation.

Piper and Feast... you're welcome

It's not as good as the original synth audio heard in the actual show.

brb1006Jun 15, 2017

I agree, the bit from 3:20 - 5:15 is really mesmerizing to lesson to. In fact the entire music for the original show is good. I can't be the only person who really wished they had the soaring synth music from the original part of a WDW album.

Brought back along with the Main St Cinema.

How about "Melody" or "Working for Peanuts"? Why not bring back some classic 3D shorts?

Lava, or Piper, or both would be nice Glad they're updating them and keeping Get a Horse
