        He also has a great World of Motion one too. And I know they're on youtube somewhere. But, it's so great that these attractions are preserved online for us to see!

        Thanks for the links!

            I wish Disney themselves would put old attractions on DVD - Making of Me, If You Had Wings, Cranium Command, anything older (instead of just stuff like High School Musical).

              Thanks for posting these.

              I was just thinking about the original Journey Into Imagination the other day, after reading some of the rumors of the supposed new refurb. It's frankly a little painful to watch videos of JII -- what a travesty that an attraction with so much charm, whimsy, and (in places) sheer beauty was ripped out and replaced with a pedestrian ride that would have seemed uninspired for Six Flags.

              I'm now reminded of how much charm the original Listen to the Land and the Land food court had, not to mention Kitchen Kabaret. And I've always thought that "The Good Turn Restaurant" was still the best name for the table-service eatery there... do we really need another generic "grille"?

                If only. Along the lines of the "Walt Disney Treasures" tins...........categorised by park or era.

                Broadcast quality footage would be wonderful...........as good as the fan tribute's are, the 1980's/ 90's consumer cameras + show lighting levels leave a lot to be desired.

                  I would love to see Magic Journeys on DVD, whether in 3D or otherwise. Along with "One Little Spark," the haunting eponymous theme song for that movie is one of my favorite Sherman brothers tunes.

                    I actually has the old food court in the Land, fountain and all, as the wallpaper on my computer just a month or two ago before I changed it. I really miss that quiet, peaceful atmosphere in there. Even when it was majorly crowded, it's was still so relaxed, unlike how it is today.

                    And the Good Turn was a great name...if it wasn't taken already I always thought the Ground Round would be appropriate too.

                        Sorry about that, the link of Journey into Imagination has now been fixed. Thanks so much for pointing this out.

                        Just in case, here's the new link (video below):

                          I actually don't mind the way it looks now. At least the building has been updated unlike the rotting state of what happened to Wonders of Life. Too bad it got gutted inside. But I do agree, I really miss EPCOT Center of the 1980s-1992.
