Today In Disney History ~ April 2nd
“Monsters, Inc. Laugh Floor is an attraction within the Magic Kingdom, a theme park at Walt Disney World Resort. It opened on April 2, 2007 within the park’s Tomorrowland section, where it replaced the Circle-Vision attraction The Timekeeper.
The main theater is equipped with 400 seats and uses digital puppetry technology similar to Epcot’s voice-directed Turtle Talk with Crush. Live actors perform voices behind a large digital screen, while computer-rendered monsters appear with the actors’ voices.
This attraction is set after the events of the Disney/Pixar animated films Monsters, Inc. and Monsters University. Monstropolis is running on safe, clean “laugh power,” but even now it still needs more laughs to provide for the needs of the monster world. To that end, Mike Wazowski suggests opening up Monstropolis’ first comedy club.
Humans will temporarily enter the monster world via a door the monsters have placed in Tomorrowland. During their visit, guests will be entertained by Monsters, Inc.’s top comedians, where their laughs will be collected and converted to electricity.
The show will always focus its attention on a single guest, known as “that guy,” throughout the performance. Usually, the use is as part of a punchline of a joke; for example, a monster might say, “I know how I’m going to dress up for Halloween … I’m going as ‘that guy.” This guest will receive an “I Was ‘That Guy'” sticker at the end of the show.”
