"Rommel, I read your blankity-blank book!"
Fantastic video! Whatever happened to "The Dreamship"? I seem to remember seeing it on an auction site many years ago? It wasn't cheap...
One of them is currently at mousegear at innoventions. I hope disney keeps it around after innoventions goes to disney heaven.
Thanks so much for this
It's always a joy to see Ron in "Dreamfinder Run"
I'd tried to find video to get a good idea of what the original used to be like after hearing how awesome it was forever and ever, and nothing really gave me a good understanding of what was there. So to have it laid out so clearly and with so much detail, I get it now. Man what a loss. Even just the bare minimum of how much ride time we lost, nevermind narrative and content changes - it's insane how much of the ride track and building they willingly gave up to either the new queue or just abandoned. Great job as always Martin!
Have another belated "thank you!" While I can get why some may prefer TT to WoM or even M:S to Horizons, the sharp nosedive in quality at the Imagination pavilion is undeniable and indefensible. The original ride was massive, detailed, inspirational, and downright adorable. And thanks for including Magic Journeys, I had never watched it in full before! I couldn't stop smiling during that unused "preview" introduction with Dreamfinder.
I'm looking forward to part 2, "Imagination Sans Figment" was the first version I rode and it was certainly... an experience.
I think that's the first glimpse I've ever gotten of the Kodak lounge area. Either in what I assume is the current cubicle farm layout that it's used for now or the earlier Kodak era with all the couches and such.
The current version of Imagination is tied for me with Stitch in being attractions that actually make me angry. I remember back when, thinking that Imagination wasn't my favorite of the big AA type shows. But it didn't make me angry like the current version does. It's just such a waste of technology and story telling.
Martin, I have yet to watch the video, but I'm sure it'll be excellent.
@marni1971 Excellent video as always! These videos make me feel nostalgic about all these great attractions that existed when I was a child. I'm so glad cellphones weren't everywhere then. You had your friends and family and the park to provide a great experience without turning to the distractions of the outside world. I don't think I ever saw Magic Journeys at Epcot, but I did at Magic Kingdom and all I could remember about that was getting scared by a witch.
