Journey Into Imagination With Figment Overview

Opened: March 5, 1983

Ride Length: 11 minutes

Overview/History:

The side by side glistening glass pyramids are home to the Imagination Pavilion hosted by Kodak.

This pavilion features "Journey Into Imagination With Figment", "Honey, I Shrunk the Audience" and "Imageworks - The Kodak 'What If' Labs".


"Journey Into Imagination With Figment" is one of those often overlooked gems. You board a car and you're on your way through a journey of sight, sound and smell. It's hosted by the lovable Figment (a character created from the saying "figment of your imagination") and Dr. Nigel Channing, portrayed by Eric Idle of Monty Python fame (he also appears in Honey I Shrunk the Audience.)

 

 

Much to Dr. Channing's dismay, Figment likes to break all of the rules. There are some zany special effects and the smell sequence is quite a surprise. A finale highlight is the song "One Little Spark" written by the Sherman Brothers, legendary Disney composers.

You'll rarely find much if any line at "Journey Into Imagination With Figment" which makes it a perfect choice when you're looking for something that's quick and easy to do.

At "Imageworks - The Kodak 'What If' Labs" there are plenty of interactive activities to test your imagination. You can send a free photo email of yourself to family/friends, there's a giant digital camera, you can be an orchestra leader, jump on sound activated stepping stones, etc. There are all sorts of fun things for kids of all ages to enjoy.

Imageworks is also a retail center. One of the best souvenirs can be found here. You can have your picture taken with a ton of background choices such as Disney characters, Disney movies or Disney theme park settings.

They're a bit pricey, but if you're looking for a one of a kind souvenir, they have acrylic blocks that can be laser cut with your image inside. If the price tag is a bit much, you can watch as they're created.

Finally, if you'd like a Figment memento, look no further as there's a wide variety of merchandise featuring this adorable character.

Journey into Imagination Reviews from DIS members:
  • njchris412 - "This is a favorite of mine and I like the way they themed it and tied it in with the Honey I shrunk the audience attraction next door, This is a must see I love it."

  • cyberbox2 - "We rode this once, we all enjoyed it but have not been itching to get back. This is a very cute ride that will certainly appeal to the younger audience."
