Magic Journeys | Extinct Disney World Attractions

Magic Journeys was a 3D film attraction that originally premiered at Epcot in Walt Disney World Resort, Florida, on October 1, 1982. It was one of the opening day attractions at the park and was also shown at Disneyland in California and Tokyo Disneyland.

The attraction took place in the Magic Eye Theater and featured 3D projection technology, making it an innovative and immersive experience for its time. The film was a collaboration between Disney and Kodak, celebrating the wonders of imagination and the magic of everyday life.

Magic Journeys took guests on a whimsical and fantastical journey through a series of imaginative and surreal scenes. The film was known for its abstract and dreamlike visuals, accompanied by a charming musical score.

The storyline was open to interpretation, with sequences exploring various themes, including nature, childhood, and the power of dreams. It was a sensory feast that aimed to spark the imagination and touch the hearts of audiences of all ages.

Magic Journeys became famous for its iconic song, “Making Memories,” which perfectly captured the essence of the film and left a lasting impression on those who experienced it.

Over the years, the popularity of Magic Journeys began to wane, and the film was eventually replaced by other 3D attractions in the Magic Eye Theater. Its final showing at Epcot was on December 31, 1986. It then ran in the Magic Kingdom’s Fantasyland Theater from 1987-2002 when it then gave way to the Legend of the Lion King stage show.
