As someone who worked at Disney/Magic Kingdom/Tomorrowland in the 90's, I know, without a shadow of doubt (and the reason is was only shown once) is that the ENTIRE THING was a publicity stunt to bring attention to the new ride Alien Encounters.
If you look at all the younger people being interviewed? They're all wearing the exact costume that cast members from Alien Encounter wore. Some of the younger, no-name 'witnesses' were actually cast members from Opening Crew.
The ENTIRE thing - every second of it - was publicity for the new attraction.
The only reason it can't be found now, is because Disney maintains control of it and it's locked up in their archives. It was only shown in 5 cities, because they were target cities.
It opened briefly for previews on December 16, 1994, on the site of the former Mission to Mars attraction, but was ordered closed on January 12, 1995 for retooling by then-Disney CEO Michael Eisner who deemed it was not intense enough. It opened officially on June 20, 1995 as part of the Magic Kingdom's New Tomorrowland.

Interesting point. Some of the pics and stories were not fabricated by Disney though. They just rehashed all the folk lore and pics they could find... which made it worth a view for me.
