Become an Honorary Bug

See the world from a bug’s point of view with a little help from Flik.

Venture to Ant Island tucked away in the heart of “a bug’s land.” Upon your arrival, wind your way underground and receive a pair of 3D glasses in the “anty-chamber,” before taking a seat inside the cavernous Bug’s Life Theater.

An “Off-Off Bugway” Show
Flik, the loveable ant from the Disney•Pixar film A Bug’s Life , invites you and your family to become honorary creepy crawlies by donning a pair of special “bug eye” glasses and watching an exciting 3D film and live show on the survival techniques of bugs.

During the show, dodge flying quills from a tarantula, feel a harmless “acid spray” from a soldier termite and inhale the putrid “defense stench” from a stink bug. But when Hopper—the grasshopper villain from A Bug’s Life—unexpectedly shows up, the theater becomes a swarm of crazy activity, led by buzzing hornets and tumbling spiders.

In the end, you’ll learn “it’s tough to be a bug” surely, but more importantly, that insects are our friends.

With dazzling 3D movie effects, realistic Audio-Animatronics figures and in-theater 4D surprises, It’s Tough to Be a Bug! places you in the center of the fascinating world of insects, showcasing the incredible value they add to our lives.
