It's Tough to Be a Bug! reviews
Theme Park Insider readers offer their ratings and reviews for It's Tough to Be a Bug!, a 4d movie in Discovery Island at Disney's Animal Kingdom.
Written by Robert Niles
Located under the park's iconic Tree of Life, this 4D film featuring characters from A Bug's Life actually premiered before that Pixar animated movie. The show includes all the typical 3D/4D gags, including objects seemingly flying from the screen, creepy-crawlies on your seat, and even a fragrant stinkbug. Obviously, you'll want to avoid this show if insects, well, bug you. (Sorry, we couldn't resist.)
The movie that the film is based on was ok, the show was good. Not the best 4-D film in Orlando (T2 at Universal is) but it's a nice show to see. THERE IS ALWAYS A KID CRYING. The 4-D show part is good, the Hopper AA is amazing, THE CRYING IS HORRIBLE. Disney should make the show a little tamer for the young ones because Avatar land is replacing Camp Micky. 6/10 - Jaiden Cohen
This is a really fun show, but so so short. The use of 4D is limited in certain areas. One time you get everything, and the next you get a couple things that are supposed to make you jump etc. Could well freak a couple kids out, and quite often a child in the audience will start crying, but it is a really good family friendly show, with some fairly good humour. - James McGee
When everything runs smoothly (hornet stingers, cockroach squirming, fog) this is as perfect as a 3D show gets. If it weren't for the double vision problem which has plagued the attraction since its inception (I first visited the park the day after opening) this would be a 10 out of 10. - Eric Zaldivar
