All ages will find this gentle boat float through a dark but colorful Pandoran bog to be mellow going. All you do is bob from room to room, listening to music and soaking up what you see—it’s a strange world, after all.

There are lots of pretty plants and animals to look at, but the most impressive thing is the huge, limber-limbed “Shaman of Songs,” the most complex Audio-Animatronic figure ever built, that serenades you near the ride’s climax. All told, Journey is 4 1/2 minutes of calm—a glowing variation on the old-fashioned Tunnel of Love.
