    Any one remember "Magic Journeys" ?

    My brother was asking me If I remember Magic Journeys...for those who don't know I believe it was a 3-D movie(?) (my brother says it was 3D) shown where HISTA and Captin EO is played...

    Anyone have any memories of it...for the life of me I don't remember the movie at ALL

    I remember magic journeys, the song particularly sticks in my head like an icepick sometimes. Although I remember watching it in Epcot and don't remember it ever being at the Magic Eye theatre.

    It was played in the outdoor theater that was there before the Magic Eye was built for Captain EO. It was a movie that followed some kids around as they did "3D thinngs". That song can permanently get melded to your brain for sure. i have it from one of the Disneyland music cds that came out in the late 80's. i would think it pretty neat to be able to check it out again for the nostalgia.

    Fondly.

    It was a pretty cheap 3D effects movie. But it had great Disney-style music.

    It went away for a good reason . . . not much repeat value and very little story. But it showed off 3D technology well for that time period and was fun while it lasted.

    I just remember how much I loved it when the kids blew on the dandelions and the seeds floated into the audience.

    Martins Videos has a tribute video "Imagination 82 – The Original Imageworks" on his site that shows the first 12 minutes of Magic Journeys if any of you feel in the nostalgic mood.

    Never saw it personally, but have listened to the music since the early 90s. Very beautiful and haunting indeed. Finally found it on YouTube though... nothing like I imagined it to be.

    The reason you might not remember it at DL is probably because it was there for less than a year as a placeholder for EO. Captain EO wasn't done shooting yet but they had the theatre ready so they put it at DL as a placeholder.

    One of the few attractions, perhaps the only one, that I can think of that switched between WDW parks. It began at EPCOT and moved to the Magic Kingdom when Captain EO appeared.

    I was never a fan of it, but I do have the song from the WDW albums...classic Sherman Brothers 80s EPCOT.

    I love that piece of Sherman Brother's music, I think it should played somewhere in TL. Another piece of Sherman Brother's Music that played before Magic Journeys is called "Making Memories", that piece I also think should be played somewhere in ether Main St. or BV St.

    Is that the same "Makin' Memories" from Sing-a-Long Songs Disneyland Fun? If so, I always loved that song and would love for it to be played somewhere in the park. It really captures the essence of Disneyland for me.

    "No fear have ye of evil curses, says you? Properly warned ye be, says I. Who knows when that evil curse will strike the greedy beholders of this bewitched treasure?"

    Yep. That would be it.

    I seem to remember that Magic Journeys was shown when the Tomorrowland Stage was still an outdoor stage. Or it was in the transition of becoming a closed theatre. I remember there being temporary walls and a roof instead of the permanent structure that there is now. Maybe my mind is playing tricks though.

    I do definitely remember when it was an outdoor theatre and watching Tommy Tutone perform the hit of the day, "867-5309".

    I wasn't a fan of it either, but I do agree it did show off the 3D technology, for the time.

    Both were available on the Happiest Celebration on Earth WDW CD. Great retro songs...I wish they would bring it back at least to the entrance medley of EPCOT.
