    At the end it says "Part one of three". I think that's your answer. JiYIwF will probably be a shorter one.

    The only good footage we can see of the dedication is from D23 when Dreamfinder showed up years ago.

    Yep that's what made me wonder if there was a complete video of it somewhere outside of Disney. I guess the answers no.

    The only depressing piece of the video - and the whole thing is amazing - is that it makes you remember what used to be and also how Disney used to go over the top in providing a stellar "I can't believe they built THAT!" exerience.

    I watched as far as the end of the ride. I know it sounds dumb but I had to wipe some tears away at the end....darn allergies. Many great memories with the wife and 3 kids.. oldest now 32!. Still remember the jumping on those music circles and the pin boards. I don't think I can watch the others....too depressing. Favorite part was how the turntable worked. I was always fascinated by that..especially when Figment shouts come on let's go as your vehicle turns and you head out.

    Excellent tribute video Martin! Really makes me wish I could have ride it. At least this is a good substitute!

    It's such a great video Martin, thank you for making this, as a person who didn't got the chance to experience such an amazing ride, it gave me a way to understand better the greatness of both the old attraction and Epcot. I really hope that whatever they do at the Imagination Pavillion manages bring back such a great experience. I wish I had the opportunity to ride the original ride :(

    I'm glad this high quality video exists for those of us who never got to ride the original. It closed a little over a month after I was born. :(

    I'm less than three minutes in and something struck my eye. On the glass pyramid, you can see the reflection of Captain America's shield.

    This means that both Star Lord and Captain America visited EPCOT Center as children!

    If any of you still don't believe that superheroes are a good fit for the park, I'm sorry, but the evidence clearly proves otherwise.

    After seeing Martin's updated Imagination video. The new musical stones now looks more babyish than ever. The current one down stairs Image Works is now given light and not only smaller but makes it geared towards toddlers. The original was more amazing since that area was in the dark and was larger with better sounds and adults felt comfortable.

    I mean just look at this mess!

    And to really add more salt to the wound of the original. They played the music where Dream finder and Figment first appears inside the current version.

    The worst part about this is that journey into your imagination, believe it or not, actually had a better imageworks than jiwf does. Sure, it wasn't as good as the original's, but still.

    Wow. That is legitimately impressive (except the ride...). And I am one who wants to have Dreamfinder back!
