Imagination Pavilion

The Imagination Pavilion is located in Walt Disney’s Future World in EPCOT and is made up of three attractions.

The first is the huge pyramid shaped building, which houses the ride Journey into Imagination. This ride has seen more changes than any other ride in Walt Disney World and unfortunately the original version was the best. When it changed for the first time guests complained that the character Figment (of your Imagination) was missing from the ride. Figment is a little purple dragon and after all he was the main character. As a direct result of the complaints Figment was re-introduced.

Once inside the ride, guests are taken through various laboratories where they study three of the five senses –sight, sound and smell (you might want to hold your breath in the smell laboratory). Figment features in all of the scenes and the ride ends when Figment invites everyone to his open house, which happens to be all upside down.

The second attraction is in the building right next door to the ride, where the audience becomes part of the 3D show “Honey I Shrunk the Audience” featuring Professor Wayne Szalinski. Guests are given special 3D glasses (we were told they were safety goggles) to wear during the show. As in the films, the comedy actor Rick Moranis plays Wayne Szalinski. The show lasts approximately twenty minutes. The professor is about to be presented with the Inventor of the Year Award when things get a little out of control. Before you know it, a mouse has been accidentally put through a machine called a “Dimensional Duplicator” (you can image what that means…………more than one mouse! ) and a misdirected laser beam from the Incredible Shrinking Machine has shrunk the audience. The special effects are amazing but watch out for those pesky mice, you might need to keep your feet off the ground.

The last area is the What If Labs. This interactive playground is located at the end of the Journey into Imagination ride. We always like to spend around fifteen to thirty minutes in here looking around and sending funny, special effect email postcards to our friends and family. Guests are also able to conduct music by waving their arms and bodies around or jumping on stones to create a symphony.

When you exit the building look out for the jumping fountains. The young children seem to love these and just when you least expect it, if you are standing in the wrong place, you may just get a soaking. Very refreshing on a hot day!
