Journey Into Imagination (March 5, 1983 - October 10, 1998)

"Two tiny wings, eyes big and yellow, horns of a steer, but a lovable fellow! From head to tail, he's royal purple pigment, and there, voilĂ ! You've got a Figment!"

I've never understood why Disney decided to get rid of this original attraction, and replace it with something  so incredibly awful. Every once in a while I'll give the "new" Journey into Imagination a chance, and every time I am 100% disappointed. Bring back the Dreamfinder Damn it!!!!! I found a few videos of whats left of the original Imageworks and it truly makes me sad. Like all of EPCOT Center, when it was in its prime, it was spectacular. I remember the young innocent me hopping all over the Stepping Tones trying to get them to play the melody to Billie Jean. I remember standing in the long lines to wait for a turn at the always busy Dreamfinder School of Drama and the Electronic Philharmonic because those things were always packed. I remember watching the holographic Figment hitting a baseball. Most importantly I remember that Figment thinks Dreamfinder should have a green bear, and when he colours outside the lines he can fix it with black paint..
