UFO hunter nexus r/UFOs have turned up a Disney documentary about UFOs and aliens that was originally used to promote the “ExtraTERRORestrial Alien Encounter” experience (The Wikipedia page describes the attraction, hilariously, as “theater-in-the-round”) that anchored Disney World’s Tomorrowland from 1994 to 2003. 

While numerous UFO sites are running the Disney documentary as a “lost” film, it has been available on YouTube for several years. Nevertheless, the “lost” Disney UFO documentary is a fascinating glimpse into both mainstream reportage on alien visitation and the modern UFO conspiracy mindset, which views the documentary as existing in a continuum of “disclosure” material designed to prime humans for the eventual reveal of extraterrestrial contact.

You can watch the Disney UFO documentary Alien Encounters: From New Tomorrowland, complete with Mickey Mouse, right here:

Redditor AnotherPint does a nice job characterizing the conspiracy mindset as it relates to this “lost” Disney UFO documentary:

According to lore, the doc, which weirdly treats UFOs and aliens as virtually established fact, was shown once, without warning, on a few isolated small-market TV stations in quieter parts of the US, then stowed away.

The conspiracists’ view is that this was part of a covert government-Disney collaboration to test public reaction to UFO disclosure. But there is no evidence of this. It was merely a tie-in promotion for a new Disney World attraction.”

It was at a 1979 MUFON (Mutual UFO Network) Symposium when the alien disclosure theories surrounding Walt Disney first exploded into the conspiracist consciousness
