Episode theme: Journey Into Imagination

 

Before we delve into this episode’s theme, we take in part three of three of a very special feature.  Back in 2006, yours truly sat in on a Walt Disney World Audition Workshop.  It was an intense couple of hours of enthusiastic performers needing a reality check and casting directors there to provide it, all in the spirit of better preparing those auditioning so they could earn one of the coveted performing spots.  Whether you’re a performer a not, enjoy an inside glimpse at what it takes to audition for Walt Disney World.

 

Next I’ll introduce you to Shawn and Katie, hosts of the popular, Waltcast. 

 

Next, learn about the history and rumored future of one of Epcot’s most beloved and missed attractions, Journey Into Imagination.

 

Next, from D23s Destination D in May 2011, composer Richard Sherman is joined by none other than the Dreamfinder from the original Journey Into Imagination for a delightful sing-along.

 

Then, from the Attraction Audio Archive we enjoy the full ride-through of the original Journey Into Imagination!

In from the Vault we sample a clip from a classic Disney film, short, television or radio program, Disneyland Record.   On Epcot Center’s opening day, October 1st1982, NBC Today Show hosted a live special covering opening day.  Bryant Gumble was on hand to interview the one and only Dreamfinder, portrayed by Ron Schneider, and Imagineer Barry Braverman!

 

Each show we present a high definition ride-through from a Disney Park East or a Disney Park West.   This week take in a live version of the current version, Journey Into Imagination with Figment.  I think you’ll find the comparison rather striking… and maybe just a little disappointing.  But don’t take my word for it! Listen for yourself then join me on Facebook and post your comments!

 

We close the show with song played in the other Imagination Pavilion attraction on opening day, the 3D film, Magic Journeys.  Like One Little Spark, Makin’ Memories and Magic Journeys were written by the Sherman Brothers.  Makin’ Memories was part of the pre-show to the film, and Magic Journeys served as the films theme music.

This week, the Mouse Lounge celebrates Labor Day with a special labor of love, a glide-thru Disneyland.

Now allow me to take just a moment to explain the Glide-thru.  Most of us have heard many different live recordings of attractions and shows from the parks.  Often, these include dialogue with the host and his guests.  

The Glide-thru allows you to take in the soundscape with only the sounds of the park, as you would hear it if you were somehow floating through the park by yourself, allowing you to take in details of the ambience.  So far that may sound somewhat familiar, but the Glide-thru is crafted such so you will also enjoy a show, attraction, or live music performance during the journey, always something special.  

You never know where you’ll start, or where you’ll end up, but the Glide-thru will always be entertaining as you float through the parks on the breeze of the stereoscape.

What you are about to hear was recorded Saturday, September 3rd, Labor Day weekend 2011.  Imagine it’s the last hurrah of summer in the mid afternoon.  The park is full of happy guests on a beautiful summer day.  There’s an electric energy in the air you can actually hear.
