Journey into Imagination
The main attraction in the Imagination Pavilion is Journey into Imagination. During the attractio guests visit the Imagination Institute and take a tour with Dr. Channing. Learn how your senses affect your mind with a visit to the institute's smell lab, sight lab and sound lab. During the ride you will get a glimpse into Figment's mind when you visit his upside down world. Figment, the little purple and orange dragon, believes that the imagination is something that is best captured when it is set free.
The figment ride really is not that much fun for the older kids. It takes you through a scientist convention that tests your senses. The smell part of it is kind of cute but I would still only recommend it to little kids.
Image Works: "What If" Labs
This is a hands on play area that will keep you busy for hours. You can play a musical game of hopscotch or even use your arm movements to conduct a symphony of sounds.
The Figment ride is neat. I like going through imageworks afterwards.

Captain EO is filled with unforgettable music and imagery that will take a new generation of Guests on a journey to the stars.
Honey, I Shrunk the Audience
Witness Dr. Wayne Szalinski accept the “Inventor of the Year Award” in this 3D presentation. This movie seems harmless, but be aware that young children and some adults might not like some of the special effects in the show. If you do not like creepy crawly critters like rats and snakes, I suggest that you either keep your eyes closed or skip the show all together. I personally keep my eyes shut.
During the show, Dr. Szalinski demonstrates some of his inventions when he accidentally shrinks the audience. Because the entire audience can now fit into a shoebox, the 3D effects seem much larger than life. It is a bit unnerving to see a toothy cat jump out at you. You’ll also feel the mice scurrying through the theater. The effects really are very cool, but sometimes a bit too realistic. If you like the scare factor, watch it and have a blast. But if not, it might be better to skip it.
Shopping in the Imagination Pavilion
The only shopping available in the imagination pavilion is at the exit of the “What If” labs. The shop carries a good selection of Figment merchandise along with a few other souvenir type items.
One cool thing that you can have done is have your computer generated image reproduced onto different shaped glass objects. This makes a good keepsake or gifts for the family.
