A fun spot in which to spend some time in the afternoon, this faux big-city streetscape offers a funny family film, an intense stunt show, a larger-then-life playground and a behind-the-scenes tour.
Strap on some 3-D glasses and buckle up for laughs at Muppet Vision 3-D, a sidesplitting movie starring the Muppets. Then watch the experts dance with danger in Light, Motors, Action! Extreme Stunt Show. The latter 25-minute open-air theater presentation will keep the attention of adventure fans, but younger children might get scared or fidgety. Take them to Honey I Shrunk the Kids Movie Set Adventure, where they can climb, slide, crawl and jump on super-sized scenery.
The Studio Backlot Tour is another experience best reserved for older family members. Skip this one if you’re visiting with small kids and instead take them to meet Mike and Sulley of Monsters, Inc. Near Mama Melrose’s Ristorante Italiano, Phineas and Ferb fans can hobnob with the famous pair throughout the day in the Phineas and Ferb Meet and Play Experience. In the vicinity, at Team McQueen Headquarters, the stars of Cars 2 are ready to meet race fans from park opening to close. From November to early January, The Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights is a not-to-be-missed marvel. The amazing snow-streaked display features millions of sparkling lights synchronized to seasonal sounds.
