One of the most beloved characters at Walt Disney World has got to be Figment the dragon. Later this month, Annual Passholders will be able to pick up a new magnet featuring the purple dragon. The magnet is being offered as part of Epcot’s International Fesitval of the Arts (January 18 to February 25). The festival started in 2017 and features artists from around the world showcasing and selling their work. There are also food booths, Broadway performances and art seminars available.
The Walt Disney World Annual Passholder magnets have become a prized collectors item in the recent past. Passholders can look forward each year to a new themed magnet for different festivals and seasons. Past magnets have included other characters (instead of the usual Mickey profile) as well as snowflakes or Christmas lights. This will be the first time an AP magnet has featured Figment though, which is sure to make this a must have for Epcot fans. The magnet can be picked up during the festival at MouseGear (near the Fountain of Nations in Future World) and Port of Entry (at the entrance of World Showcase).
Figment first appeared with the opening of Epcot Center in 1981. He began his career as the mascot for its Imagination Pavilion, and later the Journey Into Imagination ride. He is meant to be the living embodiment of the phrase “figment of the imagination”. Appearing in the ride alongside his partner, The Dreamfinder, they explored the powers of the imagination. Made of two tiny wings, large yellow eyes, the horns of a steer, a crocodile’s snout, and childish delight (things Dreamfinder found in his travels). Figment has been through many ride overhauls and changes to Epcot’s theme, yet has still remained beloved by Disney fans.
