Dreamfinder and Figment WDW Christmas Parade 1984

Featuring Ron Schneider as Dreamfinder.

Dreamfinder was a character from the first incarnation of Journey Into Imagination and most of its related media. He is voiced by Chuck McCann, though in some scenes he was voiced by his original walkaround actor Ron Schneider.

The Dreamfinder created Figment, a tiny royal purple dragon made of two tiny wings, big yellow eyes, horns of a steer and (as Birmbaums calls it) the body of a lizard and a nose of a crocodile, plus a dash of childish delight. He teaches Figment about the wonders of imagination and takes riders along through all of Figment's overdone splendors in his machine's Idea Bag.

Haunted Gingerbread House

From Halloween through the holiday season the Haunted Mansion is decked out in a "The Nightmare Before Christmas" motif for Haunted Mansion Holiday. One of the coolest highlights has got to be the haunted gingerbread house in the mansion's ballroom. 

It's been a fixture since 2001. This year's design, "Haunted Mansion Tombstone Cake," is six feet high and four feet wide. 

And for the first time ever the "house" will have animated projections. The projectors are such a new technology that there are only a few in the United States, and some are here at our very own Haunted Mansion!

It took three chefs, a team of electricians, engineers and designers to create the tasty (and creepy) "tombstone cake." And although the house looks decorated with candy, it's not. All the decorations are actually created from fondant and royal icing.
