I was at Disneyland in summer of 1988 and the 2 things that I really enjoyed was Star Tours and the Captain EO movie, regardless of it having Michael Jacksin. I think why I liked it so much it was the first and only 3D movie I had seen. Is it still being shown at all there? My little brother said he wanted to change me seats but I let him know it was the same effect for everyone, with things being thrown at you all that.:D

I really like both Star Tours and Captain EO, both of which were produced by Lucas. I was sorry to see Captain EO leave Disneyland back in '97. Captain EO wasn't the first 3D film shown in that theater at Disneyland, there was a previous one that all I can remember about it was the main kid's socks come RIGHT into your face while he's flying. But EO added actual smoke effects and lasers to the show, giving it a much more "real" feeling.

While you do indeed see the same angle on 3D stuff from any seat in the house, the forward center seats were much better for the smoke effects that came right out of the screen.

As for "Honey I Shrunk the Audience", I went once, it was kinda boring by comparison. There's a lot more going on, and the whole seating area is now a gimble, and there's an airjet system to simulate something I won't spoil the surprise of, but I really thought it was kinda lacking, more of a chore to sit through than any sort of entertainment.
