Buy it Now – Journey Into Imagination with Original Dreamfinder Ron Schneider: Exclusive Signed Edition

Join Ron Schneider as he chronicles his journey from the early days of Disneyland to his years at EPCOT Center’s Journey Into Imagination – including a previously unreleased ride-through of the classic original attraction!

The Ron Schneider Story (2012)

Listen as Ron tells of his first childhood visit to Disneyland on June 18th, 1955. As a young adult, he set his sights on a career in live themed performance, and worked for twelve years as a performer for Six Flags, Universal City Studios and Disney – where he realized his dream of performing for Wally Boag in Disneyland’s original Golden Horseshoe Revue. Then, with the opening of EPCOT Center in 1982, Ron took on the role that would define him: the original strolling Dreamfinder at Kodak’s Journey Into Imagination.

Ron shares in exciting detail the creative challenges he faced in bringing EPCOT Center’s only characters to vivid life. Anyone who’s a fan of Disney theme parks – or has ever held the dream of performing for an audience of millions – will enjoy these behind-the-scenes tales, told by a talented storyteller and theme park legend.

Ron offers up his thoughts and remembrances while you watch this never-before-seen footage from the original Journey Into Imagination! View the iconic Imagination Pavilion fountains, the inside mural, the Dream Catcher ‘carousel’ and more as Ron shares his unique take on each area of the ride.

Journey Into Imagination (1997)

“One Little Spark” of imagination led to the creation of this attraction, which debuted in 1983, capturing the hearts and minds of Epcot guests. Enjoy this previously unreleased 1997 ride-through of the classic Journey Into Imagination. This version features the exterior, queue and complete ride including all of your favorite original scenes with Dreamfinder and Figment!

Celebrating Disneyland’s 57th Birthday at Walt Disney World, Former Fantasyland Skyway Station Area, Fantasyland Bonjour! Village Gifts and Gaston’s Taven – Photos and Video

Hi everyone!

I’ve had the opportunity to celebrate Disneyland’s birthday (July 17th) in person many times in the past, including at the big media event for the 50th! But there are years that we don’t get to Disneyland in July – so we celebrate instead at the Magic Kingdom (below, right). We celebrated the 57th birthday of Disneyland on a very rainy day at the park. Our tradition is to ride opening day Disneyland attractions, but some of them are outside, so we couldn’t really be too choosy!

Trader Sam’s Enchanted Tiki Bar at the Disneyland Hotel, Tour of Decorations and Effects – Photos and Video

Hi everyone!

We have another installment from our Disneyland trip last month! On Denise’s birthday, we paid a visit to one of the Disneyland Resort’s newest additions, Trader Sam’s Enchanted Tiki Bar (below, left). The bar is a fun mix of The Jungle Cruise, Adventurer’s Club, Enchanted Tiki Room, and more. A tiki stands guard above the bar (below, left) and you can see two tiki drummers like the ones you’ll find in the Enchanted Tiki Room (below, right).

Entrance Scenes

“Let the Memories Begin” as you enter into the Happiest Place on Earth and immerse yourself in the sights and sounds of Disneyland!

Mickey’s Soundsational Parade

This colorful, festive parade features many of your favorite characters including Mickey, Minnie, Ariel and Cinderella! The exterior of “it’s a small world” is the perfect backdrop for this whimsical procession. Newly designed floats breathe life into stories and characters old and new, ending with an elaborate tribute to Mary Poppins that includes Mary and Bert on carousel
 horses, and a truly unique bicycle-led float! Recorded from multiple angles.

The Little Mermaid – Ariel’s Undersea Adventure

Hop aboard a clam shell and journey under the sea in this all-new dark ride at Disney California Adventure! Scuttle introduces the story from land before your underwater voyage begins. Follow the story of Ariel from her life as a mermaid, to when she leaves it all behind to join her love Prince Eric. A conniving Ursula (in an impressive animatronic turn) tries to derail the lovebirds along the way!

Pirates of the Caribbean with Blackbeard

Sail through the quiet bayou night as crickets chirp and frogs croak, not giving any indication to the adventure that awaits you. You’ll be warned by a talking skull and crossbones that “Dead Men Tell No Tales” before being plunged into a world of pirates and treasure. Blackbeard replaces Davy Jones on the mist screen, letting you know that dead  men do indeed tell tales!

The Magic, The Memories and You!

From coast to coast, this show has captured the imaginations of guests. The facade of “it’s a small world” transforms into a virtual canvas of wondrous and vibrant projections, culminating in a conclusion that features Walt Disney proclaiming: “To all who come to this happy place – welcome!”

Magical Fireworks Spectacular

Tinker Bell kicks off the show in high-flying splendor! True to the “Magical” name, the fireworks segments include: “The Magic of Childhood”, “The Magic of a Wish”, “The Magic of Imagination” and “The Magic of Love’s First Kiss”. The most anticipated segment of the show is titled “The Magic of a Mothers Love”, featuring Dumbo in an emotional sequence showcasing his first flight.

Disneyland Magical Moments: Pearly Band with Mary Poppins & Bert, Peter Pan & Captain Hook, Princesses, Hillbillies, Asimo and Main Street USA fun – Photos & Video

Hi everyone!

We just returned from a wonderful (and busy!) 2 week trip to Southern California (below, left). We spent the beginning of the trip at the D23 Expo, a day at Sea World San Diego and another day exploring the L.A. area – including a visit to a Tim Burton exhibit. But the rest of the time was spent at Disneyland (below, left). We visit Disneyland each year, and always find many “magical moments” to be had. One was a show in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle with Mary Poppins, Bert, and the Pearly Band (below, right).  We’ve never seen it before, and it’s a fantastic show!

Magic Kingdom Extreme Makeover Home Edition Taping with US Navy Flyover, Fantasyland Construction Update, Celebrating Disneyland’s 56th Birthday – Photos & Video

Hi everyone!

We enjoyed Sunday at the Magic Kingdom to celebrate Disneyland’s 56th birthday! I’ve often been able to celebrate at Disneyland itself, but we have other Disneyland plans coming up soon. We hadn’t realized that Extreme Makeover: Home Edition was to be taping in the park that day, we learned from a friend that afternoon that there would be a parade and flyover. We got there early enough to see the parade (below left and right) honoring Barbara Marshall, a former Navy officer who assists homeless women veterans.
