Thanks for posting this. I have never heard of this documentary. I do, however, remember the Alien Encounter "ride" at Disneyworld (mentioned in the
first few minutes of the show.) I was maybe 15 at the time. I enjoyed it, but it was definitely not a "fun ride." I recall my younger sister being
quite terrified, and I will admit that I was quite frightened myself at times. You are sitting in a theater-like seat, locked in a small room, when
the lights go off and there are noises all around you and the operators are shouting about the "unexpected emergency" that the alien you had come to
see has escaped its confinement and was let loose in the room. I think they had steam and blasts of air shooting around randomly to add to the effect
of some "creature" racing around in the dark.
I wish I could remember it all better, but it was quite an experience...one which I would imagine left quite an imprint on many of those who
experienced it, especially the younger ones. I wonder what kind of agenda was behind that whole project.
After watching the full video, something else stands out to me. Several times, the show mentioned the "new" (at the time) Alien Encounter ride and
they specifically said how "Disney Imagineers are helping to prepare the public for their upcoming alien encounters..."
