In a strange turn of events, Disneyworld.com’s new website makeover include the follow description of the ImageWorks at the Imagination Pavilion in Epcot.

ImageWorks – The Kodak “What If” Labs features a vast array of hands-on, sensory-themed activities and exhibits where you can exercise your imagination and explore your creative side in exciting exhibits that include:

Dreamfinder’s School of Drama – Become the star of your very own film using greenscreen technology
Stepping Tones – Create your own music by stepping on electronic picture panels
Figment’s Coloring Book – Using electric paintbrush guns, add a little color to Figment and Dreamfinder
Electric Philharmonic – Conduct an orchestra through the use of electronic sensors
Rainbow Corridor – Stroll through an illuminated tunnel where colored lights follow you
Vibrating Mirrors – Watch as your reflection changes right before your eyes
Kaleidoscopes – Spin eye-popping colors in intricate designs via large-size kaleidoscopes
Voice-Activated Lumia – Speak out and behold a bevy of shimmering light effects
Bubble Projectors – Blow virtual bubbles on a circular screen and create colorful colors
Figment’s Melody Maker – Help Figment play an instrument to the tune of “One Little Spark”

The majority of offerings on that list are from the original ImageWorks which became defunct after the refurbishment of the Imagination pavilion and the closure of the second floor of the interactive area. We would assume this was a simple mistake referring to outdated source materials, but the wording is modern and it also refers to some of the currently existing offerings on the ground-level ImageWorks.

Is this a major mistake referencing the past or hint of the future?

  • It’s always possible that someone at Disney cut-and-pasted the wrong attraction description into the new website. However, that content is what, five or ten years old? Hard to believe it would have stuck around that long.

    Me, I’m all for bringing back the old exhibits. Most of them would be just as cool now as they were 25 years ago, which is a tribute to the original designers.

    • My kids spent as much time in the Imagination post ride area as in the Spaceship Earth area this past weekend. In fact my 11 year old wanted to go on Imagination for a second time and I had to pull her away from the photo kiosks. Open them back up!

  • Helpful info. Lucky me I found your website unintentionally, and I’m shocked why this twist of fate didn’t came about earlier! I bookmarked it.
