Once everyone was finished with dinner in the western scene, we were free to move on through the rest of the attraction until we reached the Wizard of Oz set. The attraction was just as it is when you are riding through on the attraction vehicle; it was dark except for the set lights and the sets were playing through the action as they do during the ride. Therefore, when we were walking through the Alien scene, it was a bit creepy! Everyone took time to take photos with Sigourney Weaver as well as the alien itself. It was well paced and nobody was rushed through before they were ready.
Continuing through the attraction we made our way through Raiders of the Lost Ark where the action plays out with your driver and your kidnapper during the ride. The scene was playing out as it normally would and continued to do so. Again, we able to take our time in here, taking photos, and taking in the sights from different vantage points than we’re used to in the ride vehicle.
I have to admit it was very creepy standing in the section with the mummies and such from the horror genre. It was dark, they were lighting up and moving, and if you stood there long enough staring at them, you were ready to get a move on into the next set! In Tarzan, the Ape Man Mr. Von Bahn Bonn put his directing skills to work and directed Tarzan to swing across, yell, and then do it again! Oh that Mr. Von Bahn Bonn.
Then came a classic that everybody seems to know and love, Casablanca. “Here’s looking at you, kid”.
Finally, we walked past Sorcerer Mickey in his starring role in Fantasia before moving into the Wizard of Oz set for dessert. At the entrance to the room was a table with coffee selections for you to help yourself.
The room itself was set up with small tables and chairs to seat around four to five people. Tables in this room were not assigned as they were for dinner which made it a bit hard to find a spot to set your drink and plate of desserts, but everyone seemed very friendly and shared their tables with others.
Dessert was set up buffet style on a table very beautifully decorated to match the room. Small cupcakes, tiramisu, candies, and more were served. I have a very sweet tooth, but I have to say that much of the dessert was overly sweet.
Glenda the Good Witch made an appearance and moved throughout the crowd greeting guests and taking photos which was a nice touch. It was definitely a unique experience to see her in this attraction like this.
As everyone was finishing dessert, the munchkins came out and performed as they do during the ride, which means, the Wicked Witch also came out to play! But Glenda played her part well, and the Wicked Witch went on her way.
As the munchkins and Glenda led everyone in singing “Follow the Yellow Brick Road”, Mr. Von Bahn Bonn led guests past Dorothy, the Scarecrow, the Cowardly Lion, the Tin Man, and Toto, too, on their way to the Emerald City.
Finally, to end the evening, we were treated to a grand finale movie montage. Yes, we were able to stand and watch the movie montage seen at the end of the attraction. It’s one of my favorite parts of the attraction as it shows so many great movie moments, people, and films, and the variety of music that plays is all so familiar to us movie lovers.
I hope you’ve enjoyed our tour through these great moments at the movies, and here are just a few of my favorites.
