Food Rocks was an attraction at Epcot's The Land pavilion presented by Nestlé in the Walt Disney World Resort. It was a musical stage show, with Audio-Animatronic figures.

History[]

Food Rocks was created in The Land pavilion at Epcot Center in 1994. It replaced the former Audio-Animatronic show, Kitchen Kabaret. As the attraction was created, it was quickly rated a B-Ticket attraction. It has been said that the storyline to this show was better than Kitchen Kabaret's, but Kitchen Kabaret's show had better detail to the Audio-Animatronics. Food Rocks closed in 2003 to make way for a copy of Disneyland's Soarin'.

Attraction Description[]

The show was themed as a benefit concert for good nutrition hosted by Fud Wrapper. However, the show was continually interrupted by the Excess, a junk food heavy metal band that detests nutrition. In the end, Excess lost their power as Fud Wrapper exclaimed, "No power, you guys have been unplugged. There's plenty of foods out there that are good to eat, but remember, always eat with moderation."

The Audio-Animatronic characters were food items with human features. The music was based on popular songs by well-known performers, with lyrics adapted to the topic of nutrition. For example, "The Peach Boys", singing "Good Nutrition," was based on The Beach Boys' song "Good Vibrations." Five of these acts used the voices of the parodied musicians themselves: Tone Loc, Neil Sedaka, Little Richard, The Pointer Sisters, and Chubby Checker. Many of the characters returned for the finale.
