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.

Journey Into Imagination with Commentary by Ron Schneider (1997)

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)

Space Mountain Soft Opening: Queue, Ride and Post Show – Full Coverage Including Photos and Videos

Hi everyone!

Space Mountain is currently in soft opening, and I was fortunate enough to get to ride 3 times yesterday. The attraction was set to stay open until midnight for the Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, I’m not sure if it made it quite that late. It was to be the first day it was open past 7pm. The front of the attraction has changed, as we’ve noted through the last month (below, left). Inside the doors is a welcome to Starport Seven-Five, a reference to the year Space Mountain opened at Walt Disney World (below, right).
