The rub is that since these were filmed in the 1980s with consumer camcorders the quality is pretty crummy.
As for the original queue, there was nothing to it, just a series of switchbacks in the loading room. In the middle of the cavernous ride loading area was a circular stairway that wrapped around an elevator for direct access to the upstairs playground.
What was upstairs? A series of interactive exhibits, early generations of some of the things that are now there when you exit the ride (like the room where you step on areas that trigger sound effects, and where you controlled instruments). There was also a corridor with a rainbow of lights that would follow you as you moved along. Oh, and there was also a green screen type of attraction where a few guests would be incorporated into a brief segment with Figment and Dreamfinder.
The original just seemed to capture 'imagination' wonderfully and I felt it was an attraction that I had to see several times on each visit to WDW. Surely attendance couldn't have been as bad on it when they did the first rehab as it is now.
I found this video that compares version one with number three:
I hope this works, I haven't had much luck pasting links.
Instead, the opposite happened.
Of course, this could be totally bogus, but I'm never one to let the facts get in the way of a good story.
