Three Short Films

The show consists of three short films, each wonderful in their own right.

The first short is titled “Get A Horse!” and features Mickey and the gang’s journey on a hay wagon, with Walt Disney’s voice as Mickey Mouse! Mickey and friends board the wagon one by one, and are soon followed by Pete who creates some trouble, sending Mickey and Horace soaring toward the screen and ripping into the modern world!

The second short called, “La Luna” comes to life in a spectacular manner.

With important life lessons and family teachings, this is sure to hit home! This film tells the story of a small boy who is headed to work with his father and grandfather, who each believe their way of doing things is best.

It teaches of bravery and individuality, as the boy faces challenges and uses both his dad’s and grandpa’s teachings to do things in his own way. In a world of uncertainty, he is able to use the support and traditions before him to find his true self and uncover a world of endless possibilities.

The final short is titled “For the Birds.” It is a story about a group of birds, similar to one another, who shun a larger, goofier bird. They pick on him, and make fun of him for being different. But he gets the last laugh! It teaches children about the importance of accepting one another for who they really are, regardless of their differences.

Goodbye Captain EO

The 17-minute science fiction short film titled “Captain EO” was originally available for guests to view from September 12, 1986 through July 6, 1994.

After a long hiatus it returned on July 2, 2010 and saw its final park guests in December 2015.

As with other closures, there will hopefully be an ode to Michael Jackson and other characters in this new attraction.

Walt Disney World Resort has been undergoing a number of updates to many of its parks and this change at Epcot will hopefully bring even more guests to the theme park outside of holiday and festival events.
