Honey, I Shrunk the Kids: Movie Set Adventure was a playground at Disney's Hollywood Studios in Orlando, Florida. It was located in the Streets of America area and was based on Disney's 1989 film, Honey, I Shrunk the Kids. The playground, which opened almost a year after the film, featured 30-foot-tall (9.1 m) blades of grass, and was themed as a movie set for the giant backyard scenes from the film. It was closed in April 2016 to make room for the construction of a Star Wars Land on the same site.[1]

Overview[edit]

The playground featured large movie props and structures inspired by the classic Disney film. The soft play surface used for dirt and other objects was the same that is used in the Boneyard Playground in the DinoLand USA section at Disney's Animal Kingdom. The playground featured scenes from the movie, but also included areas that weren't explored in the film. They included:

  • Large ants
  • Explorable anthills
  • A spider web/maze with climbing ropes
  • A slide made to look like a canister of Kodak film
  • A giant dog nose that sprayed mist
  • 52-foot-long (16 m) leaking water hose that sprayed
  • 40-foot-tall (12 m) bumblebees
  • Jumbo plant-root mazes
