Chairman Dr. Nigel Channing (Eric Idle) invites you to attend an open house event of his prestigious Imagination Institute. On your way to the “event,” you’ll walk through a portrait gallery of past Inventor of the Year winners including Dr. Channing, Dr. Wayne Szalinski (Rick Moranis from Honey, I Shrunk the Kids) and Dr. Brainard (Robin Williams from Flubber). Once you board the slow-moving red vehicle, Dr. Channing will give you an overview of what you’ll experience during the Open House and you’ll also get your first glimpse Figment. During your tour of the Imagination Institute, you’ll be introduced (in clever and funny ways) to the five senses and reminded how intertwined they are with imagination.
Journey Into Imagination With Figment has a consistently short line, so save it for when stand-by waits at other attractions are really long. After the ride, you can proceed to the interactive play area, ImageWorks, or exit the attraction. Some children are startled by the loud sounds during the “Hearing Test” section of the ride. Your little ones may want to cover their ears.
Tad and Lily wish their science lessons in school used catchy little tunes like the one in Journey Into Imagination With Figment! This attraction isn't especially exciting, but it has consistently short lines, is quite funny (beware the sense of smell part), and the kids love it.
Journey Into Imagination With Figment is located in the Imagination! Pavilion in Future World West at Epcot. The duration of the ride is about 6 minutes. It is geared more toward younger children, but it’s entertaining for guests of all ages.
Each ride vehicle has two rows and can comfortably seat two adults or two adults and a small child per row. There are no lap restraints, but there is a closing door on each ride vehicle.
Guests may remain in their wheelchair, motorized scooter or ECV to experience the attraction.

This latest version of Journey Into Imagination heralds the return of 'One Little Spark,' an uplifting song written by legendary Disney composers Richard M. and Robert B. Sherman for the attraction's original opening in March 1983. The Sound Lab is very loud.
