Walt Disney World in Orlando Florida is a mine of amazing abandoned places with Disney’s River Country and Discovery Island already featuring here. The latest we’ve found is called Food Rocks, an audio animatronic show in the Land Pavilion. Not many photos remain of it in its abandoned state. The attraction has since been redeveloped to become Soarin’.
This is a description of Food Rocks from its time at Epcot –
Enter the theater, sit back and be entertained by the Peach Boys, Pita Gabriel, Chubby Cheddar, and your host Füd Wrapper. These Animatronic cartoon versions of foods sing classic tunes with lyrics reworked to convey nutritional messages about reading food labels, a healthy diet and eating in moderation.
Food Rocks was located inside the Land Pavilion in Epcot’s Future World and replaced the original attraction “Kitchen Kaberet”. The only figure that made it into the new show was the Milk Carton!
Performers in the 12-minute show include The Utensils, a collection of kitchen gadgets based on the band Queen; The Refrigerator Police, singing a parody of “Every Breath You Take”; The Sole of Rock ‘n’ Roll, a fish that strongly resembles the singer Cher; a piano-playing pineapple based on Little Richard; Neil Moussaka, a musical eggplant inspired by Neil Sedaka; and The Get-To-The-Point Sisters, based on The Pointer Sisters, singing a new version of “Respect.”
