The characters from the Disney-Pixar film, "A Bug's Life" run amok on screen and in the audience. This 3-D film allows guests to experience what it's like to be an insect or arachnid.
Flik, the protagonist from "A Bug's Life", is our guide through this educational show. Of course, something goes wrong, and chaos ensues!
Through the use of theatrical lighting, animatronics, 3-D film, and other special effects, "A Bug's Life" provides an experience using sight, sound, smell, and even touch!
This 9 minute film may be frightening for some children.
Guests may remain in their wheelchairs, ECVs, or motorized scooters.
Far as I can tell, TTBAB at DCA is identical to the excellent 3D show in Orlando at Disney's Animal Kingdom.
Good show. It was a bit too intense for my four-year-old, but fun for everyone else.
As 3-D and 4-D interactive movies have become more and more of a staple at theme parks around the world, It's Tough to Be a Bug in my opinion, still stands tall as one of the best. I've seen it, as well as its competitors, a dozen times or more. It competes with Universal's Terminator 3-D, though I give the edge to Bug because it appeals to a much larger audience. Terminator's effects are definitely better, but where Disney lacks in overall effects, it makes up for in nostalgia, appeal and fun.
this is my favorite 3d show it has great visual effects and its hilarious
My favorite 4D attraction out there. They use a wide vary of effects including some that you won't find anywhere else (the bugs under seat and wasp sting). Go on it any time in the day the lines are never long.
I liked the effects, and the show itself was perfect. My son got a little scared, but he kept on saying wow when the Audio Animatronic Hopper came out. He kept on humming the final song, "We are Pollinators"
