Hello once more, listeners! SurferClock here along with TAP-G to bring you the latest episode of "What's the Attraction?"
There's nothing better than a fanciful trip through the pathways of the mind, searching out ideas and inspiration. Without the use of imagination, the world would be a rather bleak place, bleaker than this cold, grey November weather that's been overtaking Central Florida...brr!
One place you can always go for a few sparks of inspiration is the Imagination! Pavilion at Epcot, which currently houses two attractions. There's Captain EO on one side of the pavilion, the retro-callback to the days gone by for both Disneyland and Walt Disney World, but then, on the other side, inside the glass-pyramids and through the automatic double doors, you'll find the third incarnation of the Journey into Imagination, "Journey into Imagination with Figment," the subject of our review today.
It's had a rather long and storied history, starting in 1983 with the opening of the original Journey into Imagination. Its colorful halls played host to two wonderful characters, Dreamfinder and Figment. Only one of them still remains with us today, and only as recently as 2002 did Figment reappear once Disney execs found out that taking a journey into YOUR imagination wasn't quite as magical.
Controversy and storied history aside, does this third incarnation still hold up today, or might we possibly be in desperate need of more imaginative ideas? Find out with our discussion, review, and rating right now!
