Magical Blogorail Green: The Disney Attraction I Miss the Most

                                          Welcome to those of you joining me from Magical Days with the Mouse and those of you just hopping aboard. I am the 3rd stop on our Magical Blogorail.

The attraction I miss the most is still at the parks in a sense, but not as it was originally. That attraction is "Journey Into Imagination." You may remember that I blogged about this same attraction back in April during Magical Blogorail's Least Favorite Disney Attraction. Even though I consider the current attraction my least favorite of the parks, the original attraction is also the attraction I miss the most (I'm pretty sure I speak for a lot of Disney fans out there)!

In my opinion, the original attraction was simply perfect! I still don't understand the reasoning behind changing the ride. Dreamfinder and Figment really brought the concept of using your imagination to life in the original attraction.

After Disney's recent reopening of the "Original Enchanted Tiki Room," I have hope that one day they will bring back my beloved "Journey Into Imagination." I loved that ride and figment so much that after 23 years I still have the Figment plush toy that my parents bought for me on one of my trips (and he still looks brand new)!

Thank you for joining me today. Your next stop on the Magical Blogorail Loop is A Disney Mom’s Thoughts.

  1. I miss it too! I remember riding it for the first time and my mom being so impressed with Figment - we still try to pick up Figment souvenirs for her on our trips!

  2. Agree- this would have been my second choice to write about!! I too have a Figment stuffed animal that I got in 1986, I think, but he does not look new! He looks like he has a broken neck!!

  3. I have a Figment stuffed animal from 1986 too! My kids love it! I wish they would return this attraction to its original version too. It was so much better at relaying the message I believe the pavilion is representing.

  5. Hopefully the popularity of the original Tiki Room return will encourage WDW to do the same here. Now I'm not advocating anyone to go set fire to Journey Into Imagination, but that does seem to spur on these changes... ;)
