Imagination

Imagination
The text in italics is from the WDW Guidebook for Guests with Disabilities. I will add more information as I have time.

Journey Into Imagination With Figment
Take a rollicking ride through the Imagination Institute, where that playful purple dragon Figment really puts you to the test! Climb all aboard a train of thought in the Sound Lab. Use your Common Scents in the Smell Lab. Watch your world turn upside down in Figment's house. There's no journey like the Journey into Imagination!
Location: Future World West - Imagination!
Guests may remain in wheelchair/ECV.
Handheld Captioning devices which display text for segments at this location are available at Guest Relations.

There is one scent on this ride. You will have plenty of warning ahead of time to prepare. I don't like the particular scent, so I take a deep breath before it is coming. To avoid spoilers, I will write it in white. Just click on your mouse and run your cursor over it; you will be able to read it.
Figment has a machine like a gambling machine where you win if all 3 pictures match. You 'win' skunk scent and have time to prepare between when the skunk pictures appear and the odor starts.


ImageWorks: The Kodak "What If" Labs
Let your imagination run wild in this incredible interactive playground! Wave your arms and move your body to create magical music, videotape your image and play it back in super slow motion, make up a symphony by jumping on stones, transform yourself into an animal and e-mail the photo to friends, and much more.
Location: Future World West - Imagination!
Guests may remain in wheelchair/ECV.



Honey, I Shrunk The Audience
Professor Wayne Szalinski is at it again and this time you're the one who gets shrunk. This interactive adventure goes beyond 3-D with incredible special effects and awesome surprises. Be ready to make nice to mice, face the fangs of a python and duck when a dog has a very itchy nose. You might feel small, but your laughs will be big!
Location: Future World West - Imagination!
This attraction may be frightening for children.
Guests may remain in wheelchair/ECV.
Due to the nature of the experience, Guests with service animals should check with a host/hostess for attraction and boarding information.
Assistive Listening devices which amplify the audio at this location are available at Guest Relations.
Reflective Captioning which projects captions onto an acrylic panel is available at this location. Guests should contact a host/hostess at this location.
Guest-activated captioning is available on selected video monitors at this location. Please visit Guest Relations to obtain an activator.
