Review: Vacation Fun in the Mickey Shorts Theater at Disney’s Hollywood Studios

By Dave Shute


The Mickey Shorts Theater opened in the space formerly occupied by many attractions—Sounds Dangerous my favorite among them—in Echo Lake near Indiana Jones in Disney’s Hollywood Studios in early 2020.

At the moment it is showing Vacation Fun, a set of excerpts from recent Mickey Mouse shorts such as Potatoland and Amore Motore, collected together into a reasonably coherent montage, with a new ending.

It’s fun, it’s air-conditioned, it’s a place to sit, and perhaps most importantly, for those who have not yet seen the “new” Mickey Mouse animation style, it’s a very helpful stop before going to Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway.

For such folks, seeing Vacation Fun first will keep them from possibly being jarred early at the Railway from the very different animation styles found there.

Also fun are the seats in the Mickey Shorts Theater…

…which are Mickey Shorts!

During the virus, every other row is roped off, and there are also closed spaces between groups of seats.

This is a minor attraction—but Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway is not. For those intending to see the Railway who are not yet familiar with the new Mickey animation style, it is a necessary pre-show.
