(singing is in "" the
rest is speach)
"One little spark of inspiration,
Is at the heart of all creation. Right at the start of everything that's
new, One little spark lights up for you."
Oh, hello there. So glad
you could come along. I am the Dreamfinder. (laughs) Musical notes!
What delightful melodies
those will make. I love these flights of fancy. Searching the universe
for sounds, colors, ideas--anything that sparks the imagination! A sunbeam!
That's a good one. (laughs) Everything that I collect can inspire amazing
and marvelous new ideas. And you never know what kind of figment you may
come up with. (laughs) Here's my favorite!
"Two tiny wings, eyes
big and yellow. Horns of a steer, but a loveable fellow. From head to tail,
he's royal purple pigment. And there -- Voila! -- you've got a Figment!"
A Figment of imagination!
(laughs) Dreamfinder! I'm just great! Ah-ah-ah!
Not quite! Huh? I'll throw in a dash of childish delight. (laughs) Look,
Figment! Some new friends have joined us.Can they
imagine, too? Of course! Imagination is something that belongs to
all of us. You mean, everyone can think up new things?
(laughs) That's right, Figment. And every sparkling idea can lead to even
"So many times, we're
stumbling in the dark, And then -- Eureka! -- 'what a spark!"
are we going to use lightning? Hmmm...we can combine it with ghostly
shivers on a stormy night. And turn it into a tale of fright! Oh,
oh, look, look! A rainbow! I'll use that to paint with. Now you've
got it. Wow, wow wow! Numbers, letters, papers for
writing. Costumes, make-up, stages for lighting. Teardrops, laughter. What
about science? Science?
need electron beams and crystal prisms. Gyroscopes and magnetisms...
Hold on, Figment. Why? The idea bag is full.
is? Let's start making new things. Now, wait. First, we must store
these ideas with the others in the Dreamport.
we almost there? Oh, the Dreamport is never far away when you use
your imagination. Come on everybody, let's go!
"We all have sparks, imaginations.
That's how our minds create creations. Right at the start of everything
that's new. One little spark lights up for you."
A dream can be a dream come true, With just that spark in me and you."
(Additional lyrics heard
throughout the attraction are: )
"Mix red and gold from
autumn flowers, Purple and blue from twilight hours. Green summer hills
and rainbows play a part. A painter's brush, a work of art."
"One chilling word, like
shriek or killer, Can spark the mind to start a thriller. And some words
like dagger, blood, and gory. And then, a mystery story."
"Some happy songs, some
snappy dances. Costumes and sets, spoofs and romances. With laughs and
tears, and footlights all aglow, The sparks ignite a brand new show. "
