Take A Trip Back To Disney’s ‘Magic Journeys’


Long ago, in a time even before the first showing of Captain EO… there was MAGIC JOURNEYS.

On October 1, 1982, Magic Journeys premiered as one of the opening-day attractions at the Journey Into Imagination pavilion in Walt Disney World’s EPCOT Center. It was directed by Murray Lerner and featured a song composed by Robert and Richard Sherman. Starting on June 16, 1984, it began a two-year run at Disneyland, first on the outdoor Space Stage and then inside the newly constructed Magic Eye Theater in Tomorrowland. In early 1986, the film was removed from Disneyland and EPCOT Center in order to make way for a new 3-D film, Captain EO.

One awesome young gent by the name of WidenYourWorld on YouTube was crafty enough to use a tripod and desecrated pair 3-D glasses over his camera lens to remove the blur from MOST of the film.

So here, now, thanks to WidenYourWorld, is your chance to go on a Magic Journey once more…

HERE is a demo of the amazing Sherman Bros. theme song, upload by Robert Sherman himself!
