This was enjoyable
21 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The reason that I give it such a high score is because you have to see it along with the ride. The Ellens Energy Adventure is played numerous times daily at the Epcot center at Walt Disney World in Orlando Florida. The ride starts with a short movie hosted by comedienne Ellen DeGenerous with introduces the plot line. Funny cameos by Bill Nye The Science Guy, Jamie Lee Curtis, Alex Trebeck and Willard Scott make the movie more enjoyable plus the actual action sequences in between sections of the movie. like a section in which you are roaming around with dinosaurs. The ride is very entertaining. The audio animatronics are so well designed so well(like all of Disney) that I am at times wondering what surprises might be around the corner. There is a pretty well done audio animatronic of Ellen herself. This ride is funny and I understand that it was not like that before. No humor probably just like a documentary. This ride is for the better and as lot more fun. Ellen Degenerous has such good delivery and it shows in this funny Disney ride.
