The sneak preview is 12 minutes long and focuses on a part of the film that includes many famous Disney attractions and characters. I won’t spoil it, but if you attended Destination D: Attraction Rewind, you have seen most of this preview. However, the in-theater lighting, wind, and water effects are a nice touch. The preview is worth a watch the next time you visit Epcot, and certainly if you are a big Disney Parks fan. You have until May 24th to catch the sneak peek at Tomorrowland in the Magic Eye Theater.

Tomorrowland hits theaters May 22nd.
