Journey Into Imagination

Walt Disney World is searching for new actors. While this in and of itself is nothing new, the description of the role is causing some speculation about the Journey Into Imagination attraction. Disney is looking for male and female comedic actors for a “new offering” to play scientific interns.

Here is the description from the Disney Audition Website:

  • Male and Female Actors to portray wide-eyed and naïve “scientific interns”. Set in a laboratory environment, the warm and friendly “intern” enthusiastically supports various interactive audience experiences.
  • Performers should have experience in interactive improvisational performance and must project a warm and inviting persona.

But where will Disney be using these “scientific interns”? This casting call when added to the recent Figment Survey Questions leads our thoughts in the direction of a change coming for Journey into Imagination in EPCOT. Currently, guests are taken on a tour of the Imagination Institute and are test subjects for the new invention, the Imagination Scanner.

This aging attraction has been losing popularity since its first major renovation in 1998 when Figment was temporarily removed (until 2002). There have been many rumors swirling that a new “Inside Out” themed experience was replacing Journey into Imagination but so far nothing official has been announced.

In November of last year Bob Chapek, the Chairman of Disney Parks and Resorts,  announced at the Destination D fan event that EPCOT would be receiving “a major transformation” that would help transition the park into being “more Disney, timeless, relevant, family-friendly” while keeping the original vision alive.

Even though Journey into Imagination is decidedly not a popular attraction, Figment the small purple dragon has a large following. Figment is even featured on many of this year’s EPCOT International Food and Wine merchandise.

Nothing official has been announced by Disney yet. But, stay tuned to Chip and Company as we bring you the latest information as it is released!
