Vacation Fun Short Films

Vacation Fun is an excellent place to take a break in the heat of the day. You can expect to see several favorite Disney short cartoon clips, including some never before seen animation.

Basically, it’s a new Mickey and Minnie Mouse shorts cartoon. The two are doing all the necessary things to prepare and leave for vacation. Meanwhile, they are reminiscing about other fun and eventful trips and adventures. During the process, clips from some of the most popular shorts appear.

As a fan of the more recent cartoon short series, I absolutely loved getting to see this version that’s not available anywhere else. Sure it’s a cartoon, and it’s not a big deal if you miss it. But my son and I both enjoyed it. We also are huge fans of the new Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway attraction!

Vacation Short fun film has a duration of 10 minutes. So the longest time you would have to wait would be for the next show to begin.

Vacation Fun Photo Opportunity

Make sure to check out the exit area of the theater and take time for a few family photos with these life-size props.

There’s even the opportunity to take a picture and pretend you’ve been to Goofy’s dream theme park, Potatoland.

Or maybe you would like to climb a mountain in the Swiss Alps. Make sure to get just the right angle on this one.

And don’t forget to try and take a picture with the baby panda from Panda-monium. If you’ve seen the short prior, you know this baby bear is good at pulling disappearing acts.

If you aren’t familiar with the newer Disney shorts series, there are five seasons to date with close to 100 episodes. You can watch all of the series on Disney+. Additionally, if you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort, the shorts play on a loop on channel 30 in your room.
