Ultimate THE AMER­I­CAN AD­VEN­TURE An­i­ma­tronic Show in Pan­davi­sion - EPC OT ( Golden Dream edited)

WDW Magazine - - Interview -

Michael was taken to the back of the In­di­ana Jones theater (where you en­ter) to put on his cos­tume. “Af­ter we were dressed, they told us where we would stand and what we were sup­posed to do. My role was to get shot by fake blow darts and die a hor­ri­ble death. I had to say ‘Why?’ while dy­ing.”

Af­ter they re­ceived in­struc­tions, Michael and the other ex­tras were brought back on stage to per­form their parts. He was very ner­vous de­spite a small role he had to play. He said, “You don’t re­al­ize when you are sit­ting in the au­di­ence just how many peo­ple are watch­ing. But when you are on stage…it’s a lot of peo­ple.” (In case you are won­der­ing, when the theater is filled to ca­pac­ity it holds around 2,000 guests.)

If you are fa­mil­iar with the show, you might know that there is some­thing “unique” about one of the “ex­tras”. I won’t spoil it for those that don’t know, but I asked Michael if they told the other “ex­tras” what would hap­pen. It turns out; it is a sur­prise for ev­ery­one.

Af­ter the “ex­tras” are fin­ished, they head to the back of the theater to turn in their

cos­tumes, and then re­turn to their seats to watch the rest of the show. Michael had a great time and highly rec­om­mends vol­un­teer­ing for this unique ex­pe­ri­ence. How­ever, he says to “be pre­pared that you will be in front of A LOT of peo­ple.”

My daugh­ter Emily was also able to take part in a unique guest ex­pe­ri­ence at In­di­ana Jones Epic Stunt Spec­tac­u­lar. At 8 years old she wasn’t old enough to do the part Michael did (you have to be at least 18 for that) she was se­lected to be the Ju­nior Di­rec­tor for the show. Like Michael, we were sit­ting near the front of the theater af­ter get­ting there early and they asked her if she wanted to par­tic­i­pate. Just be­fore In­di­ana Jones “drops in” to the first scene, Emily got to say “Lights, Cam­era, Ac­tion!”

Emily had this to say about her ex­pe­ri­ence, “It was very, very cool. I was a lit­tle ner­vous but it was neat be­ing in front of all those peo­ple. In­di­ana Jones Epic Stunt Spec­tac­u­lar is my fa­vorite show at Dis­ney World. Def­i­nitely get there early to get a good seat!”

Ever since her ex­pe­ri­ence, watch­ing In­di­ana Jones Epic Stunt Spec­tac­u­lar is the high­light of our trip.
