Second floor of the Journey into Imagination building

So we will be doing a full review of the Undiscovered Future World Tour soon but we wanted to just post these for everyone to see. They’ve been heavily watermarked and please do not repost them on tumblr or any other social media site.

Now technically guests are no longer taken up there as part of the tour. However our tour guide, who shall remain nameless, was extremely generous and took us up there. (We think probably because we were a very small group, just us three sisters and another couple, and all were obvious EPCOT nerds. Plus our guide had worked at the pavilion for a long time and had obvious love for it that we shared.)

Just a few things our guide let us know about the pavilion: 

  • We weren’t allowed to go into the exhibits area as that is not “show ready” in any form. It’s mostly used for storage but we could still see some of the original ImageWorks exhibits set up.
  • The other reason guests are generally no longer taken up there is because there are structural issues. Apparently a manager fell through the floor while walking around up there recently.
  • As of this time there are no plans to make any changes to the pavilion. According to our guide no changes can take place unless there is a dedicated “partner” for the pavilion. 
  • Our guide also let us know that Disney won’t be able to put Dreamfinder back in the ride until they can buy him back from Kodak. Disney bought Figment back a few years ago but Kodak still owns the rights to Dreamfinder. Our guide did say that there are many imagineers who do want to get Dreamfinder back though so maybe one day it’ll happen. (I think it’s even more likely given that Kodak is allowing for Dreamfinder’s use in the Figment comic.)

For any fan of Journey into Imagination, I have recently stumbled upon a semi-new video of Imagination filmed close to its closing, in 1998, and for some reason it has stolen my heart. 

Journey into Imagination is one of the luckier old attractions that manages to survive through footage from the 80s up to its closure, and I have helped spread Imagination to several friends by showing them these precious pieces footage…and that’s exactly how I stumbled upon this video. This is, and this is my opinion here, my FAVORITE video to show people who have never seen the ride Journey into Imagination. You can’t see every hair on Dreamfinder’s beard, or every scale on Figment, and YES, the audio is in Mono. However, the colors of the lighting, the vivid capturing some places I’ve never found footage that looks clean like the Literary fireworks room, the Arts room, and the Finale.

Anyway, it pains me to see this video having only 600 views, so my dearest Imagination buddies, please spread this video around! I think you guys will all enjoy it as much as I do! (PS. They have a horizons one as well. It’s a little jerkier, but it’s still pretty.)
