Disney & Pixar Short Film Festival Officially Debuts at Epcot

Starting today (Wednesday, December 23, 2015), Epcot Guests can experience beloved Disney and Pixar animated shorts in a new 4D experience at the Magic Eye Theater (formerly featuring Captain EO), found in the Imagination Pavilion.
In “Disney & Pixar Short Film Festival,” three short films will burst to life on the big screen like never before. Many of the special effects used in the past (such as the bouncing floor, water effects, and more) will also included.

Three fun shorts will be played as part of the 18-minute attraction. Here's a short description of them:
  • “Get a Horse” stars Mickey Mouse and features Walt Disney himself as the voice of the iconic character. This black-and-white, hand-drawn short follows Mickey, his favorite gal pal Minnie Mouse and their friends Horace Horsecollar and Clarabelle Cow as they delight in a musical wagon ride — until Peg-Leg Pete shows up and tries  to run them off the road.
  • “For The Birds” opens to show one by one, a flock of small birds perch on a telephone wire. Sitting close together has problems enough, and then along comes a large dopey bird that tries to join them. The birds of a feather can't help but make fun of him—and their clique mentality proves embarrassing in the end.
  • “La Luna” is the timeless fable of a young boy coming of age in the most peculiar circumstances. Tonight is the very first time his Papa and Grandpa are taking him to work. In an old wooden boat they row far out to sea, and with no land in sight, they stop and wait. A big surprise awaits the little boy as he discovers his family's most unusual line of work. Should he follow the example of his Papa or his Grandpa? Will he be able to find his own way amidst their conflicting opinions and timeworn traditions?
The exterior of the Magic Eye Theater now features some quite colorful, new signs for the attraction:
