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)

“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!

Epcot’s Kim Possible World Showcase Adventure Preview – Photos and Video

Hi everyone!

Epcot’s Kim Possible World Showcase Adventure Preview:

The new Kim Possible World Showcase Adventure has recently soft opened at Epcot and site partner MouseSteps was there! I also participated in the original testing of the Kim Possible Adventure in the fall of 2006 and present the following comparison set of photos. In the test version the sign-in station was in a revamped shop upstairs in Canada. There you watched a video that explained the adventure to follow.

The new recruitment is now done at Innoventions (East or West), or along the path from Future World to World Showcase.

The actual adventure in the testing version included two countries, France (below) and the United Kingdom. After completing these missions you were directed to the former Image works in the Imagination pavilion for a final battle with Drakken.

The new version features seven possible missions taking place around World Showcase, using seven of the pavilions (Mexico, Norway, China, Germany, Japan, France and United Kingdom).


The test version’s big payoff was the rare chance to see the inside of the long closed Image Works at the Imagination Pavilion (old friend Dreamfinder below). There are many twists to the new adventures, like the monkey rising from the water (below right, in China).
