#TBT Throwback Thursday Disney Style

Journey

#TBT It’s Throwback Thursday! Anyone else remember this?

This photo is of Dreamfinder and his Dream Mobile from the Journey Into Imagination ride in the Imagination Pavilion in Epcot. This photo was taken in 1984.

This attraction has had two updates/changes: the first in 1999 when the ride got a complete overhaul and the named changed to Journey Into Your Imagination, and the second in 2002 when they decided bring back the beloved character Figment who had been removed in the first update causing an upset with many Figment fans.

Currently the attraction is named Journey Into Imagination With Figment. Are you a fan of the Journey Into Imagination ride? What about Figment? My son will tell you that Figment is his absolute favorite character within the parks! We love the song Figment sings also, “One Little Spark”. Can you sing along?

One little spark, of inspiration
Is at the heart, of all creation.
Right at the start, of everything that’s new.
One little spark, lights up for you.

Two tiny wings, eyes big and yellow.
Horn of a steer, but a lovable fellow.
From head to tail, he’s royal purple pigment.
And there, viola!, you’ve got a Figment!

We all have sparks, imaginations.
That’s how our minds, create creations.
For they can make, our wildest dreams come true.
Those magic sparks, in me and you.

Imagination, imagination.
A dream, can be a dream come true.
With just that spark, in me and you.

Frozen Ever After Update! – Epcot’s Norway Pavilion

Frozen Ever After Concept Rendering

Epcot’s Norway Pavilion Update!!! – Many have been waiting patiently for more word about Epcot’s Norway Pavilion attraction. Maelstrom, a favorited boat ride attraction closed its doors in October 2014 to begin renovation to become Frozen Ever After (opening Spring 2016). Details have been released…read below in the comments for attraction information!

The boats in the new attraction will use the same path that the Maelstrom boats used, but the entire story of the ride has changed.

Guests will visit the “Winter In Summer” Festival that takes place in Arendelle.

The attraction queue will be set in Wandering Oaken’s Trading Post. You will be able to hear Oaken call “yoo-hoo”!

Olaf and Sven will begin the ride as they are preparing things for the festival. You will meet Grandpappy Troll in Troll Valley as he tells the story of how Anna meets Kristof.

You will hear Olaf singing while ice skating along side Anna, Kristof and Sven.

The centerpiece of the ride will be Elsa singing “Let It Go” from the balcony of her ice palace while simulated snow will fly around the room.

The ride will also feature Marshmallo, as well as the Snowgies from the Frozen Fever short.

The final scene has fireworks and a goodbye from all of the characters.

The Royal Sommerhus has been added as a meet and greet for Anna and Elsa and is based on an actual historic log cabin in Norway.

As much as I loved Maelstrom, and I was pretty sad to see it go….as time has passed I am getting a little excited about something new in the World Showcase. What about you? What are your thoughts on the upcoming Frozen attraction in the Norway Pavilion? Tell me what you think in the comments below!
