The 2022 Directory has been updated to include this year's annual Logo Competition and Awards Ceremony. In addition these updates are reflected in the Ongoing Events section.

In addition, a new thread has been created to help continue fostering comradery here on the forum! The Imagineering Common Area is officially online as a safe space for all armchair imagineers to communicate about quite literally anything at anytime. This aims to give a place for discussion when there are no competitions occurring on the forums. Feel free to post videos, pictures, questions, brainstorms, and more in the common area as it's meant for all! The Imagineering Common Area has also been added to the Useful Links portion of our Community Plaza. Find the common area here:

Until the next update, keep it imagineery everyone!

What’s everyone’s favorite fan Imagineering project that isn’t designed for Disney or Universal? (you can say one of your own projects btw)
I grew up with it at the Mall of America in MN…Paul Bunyan’s Log Flume. The show scenes (including one in which one of the coasters goes through), the kinetic energy it adds to the mall (you can sit at a 3rd floor food court and watch the logs go by), and the final drop are all awesome! Unfortunately it is on rehab most of the times when I’m at Nickelodeon Universe, so I haven’t ridden it for years!

So, I post this a lot, and I want to explain why *I* think it's the best for what we do here. It involves a lyrics breakdown, with me...

Let's start with the opening, which is most useful to what we do. I implore you to think upon each line individually.

Buy it, use it, break it, fix it,
Trash it, change it, mail, upgrade it,
Charge it, point it, zoom it, press it,
Snap it, work it, quick, erase it,
Write it, cut it, paste it, save it,
Load it, check it, quick, rewrite it,
Plug it, play it, burn it, rip it,
Drag and drop it, zip, unzip it,
Lock it, fill it, call it, find it,
View it, code it, jam, unlock it,
Surf it, scroll it, pause it, click it,
Cross it, crack it, switch, update it,
Name it, rate it, tune it, print it,
Scan it, send it, fax, rename it,
Touch it, bring it, pay it, watch it.

Of course we "buy it" (budget is sometimes part of the challenge) or "break it" likewise, we are breaking what exists.

We trash things, change things, upgrade things.
We charge things, point to things, mail things in, and upgrade it....
You get the idea.

This song opens with WHAT WE DO. Look at it lyric by lyric, line by line.

And, then it gets into comps.

One more time
Ah ah ah ah ah
Ah ah ah ah
One more time
Ah ah ah ah ah
Ah ah ah ah
We're like the legend of the phoenix
Our ends with beginnings
What keep the planets spinning
The force of love beginning

At this point you've joined our fun little joint. You are part of here. You can be part of a legend, or make your own. "the legend of the pheonix" is "like" not "defined"

You could win.

We've come to far,
To give up who we are
So let's raise the bar
And our cups to the stars

Sometimes you need to stay up to get the good stuff done.

We're up all night till the sun
We're up all night to get some
We're up all night for good fun
We're up all night to get lucky
We're all up till the sun
We're up all night to get some
We're up all night for good fun
We're up all night to get lucky
We're up all night to get lucky
We're up all night, all night to get,
Up all night to get, get, get lucky

Or you are REALLY committed.

What is an Imagineer?
Not the job description.

I could get into the ideology of Horizons, and why it was the culmination of the story the original EPCOT Center told (regardless of creator intent, it's what they did).



One Little Spark...
What do we do here? On the Imagineer forum?

And dreams mean memories. Deep memories for many... @tcool123 , my old friend

We need comps.

Competitions are how we both advance our creative art, but become better people ourselves.
