Honey, I Shrunk the Audience


Composer Bruce Broughton, wrote, conducted, composed and mastered his original score for the Imagination Pavilion’s attraction, Honey, I Shrunk the Audience, in 1994.

It is located in Future World East at EPCOT Center in Lake Buena Vista, Florida. The attraction opened on November 21, 1994. It stars Rick Moranis, as “Professor Wayzne Szalinski” and Eric Idle, as “Dr. Nigel Channing”. The attraction also co-stars Marcia Strassman as "Diane Szalinski" and Robert Oliveri as “Nick Szalinski”.

Bruce Broughton recorded an academy award show and mysterious/comedic type of score for this attraction.

For the queue loop, Richard Bellis did an arrangement of Bruce Broughtons Honey, I Shrunk the Audience Theme.

The attraction consists of a waiting area with an 11 minute film, showcasing photos of various occasions, presented by Kodak, entitled, “True Colors”, and a main theater, where we get to sit down, while we watch as the Inventor of the Year award is given to Professor Wayne Szalinski at the Imagination Pavilion’ Open House.

But soon after the award show begins, chaos ensues.

The film lasts 14 minutes.

Throughout this show, we get shrunk, scared by a lion, almost eaten by a python, attacked by thousands of mice, picked up by Adam Szalinski, played by twins Daniel and Joshua Shalikar, and sneezed on by a dog.

The main theme, of Bruce Broughtons score, from this attraction, has been the only music released. This attraction is located in Lake Buena Vista, Florida, Anaheim, California, Tokyo, Japan, and Paris, France. The attraction consists of about 16 tracks. I love the music from this attraction. It is very entertaining and enjoyable. Bruce Broughton used the following instruments for his score to this attraction.

The score is the same at all these locations.


I have learned, that in order for Disney to consider releasing a CD of Bruce Broughtons original theme park music, I would have to find out the interest in this type of music and get at least 5,000 people who would purchase it. I know of several people, already, who would buy this music, myself included.

Who here has some fond memories of this show and do you have any favorite cues from the shows music? Feel free to share your thoughts, memories, etc... from this missed and retired attraction.

Until next time, Have A Magical Day, All!
