Figment Survey

Walt Disney Parks and Resorts have recently included some interesting questions about Figment in their surveys to EPCOT guests. It looks like Disney is gauging the recognition and popularity of the official mascot of the “Imagination!” pavilion at EPCOT.

The Journey into Imagination pavilion has been with EPCOT since it opened in October of 1982. The attraction soon followed in March of 1983. This ride was often considered by fans to be one the greatest theme park rides ever built. The ride then had a major renovation in 1998 with the result being noticeably less appearances by Figment. Guests now only saw him in movies played in the pre-attraction queue. There was such a backlash to this that Disney had Journey into Imagination go through another renovation in 2002 to bring Figment back into the story line.

In November of last year Bob Chapek, the Chairman of Disney Parks and Resorts,  announced at the Destination D fan event that EPCOT would be receiving “a major transformation” that would help transition the park into being “more Disney, timeless, relevant, family-friendly” while keeping the original vision alive.

These new survey questions make it seem like Disney might be removing this attraction to make way for something new. Hopefully new information will be released at the D23 Expo in July that will shed new light onto the fate of the little purple dragon.

Lets do our own Chip and Co. survey! How do you feel about Journey into Imagination with Figment?

  • “Timeless classic that shouldn’t be touched”

  1. I love Figment! Love his ride. I heard it will be replaced with Inside Out! Whatever you do, do NOT get rid of his ride unless you the next renovation is back to the original which you should because there is a little bit of hate on the current ride! Please bring back the original

  2. Figment please stay. You mean the world to me at 78 and my 52 yr young son n his family. Don’t leave. You are visited by us each n every year. Stay stay. Love your upside down kitchen. Home. Stay please

  3. Keep Figment don’t take him away. I love Figment and so does my adult son. We would both be upset if Figment went away!!!!!! We would not go on the ride again if Figment wasn’t there.

  4. I LOVE Figment but miss the original ride. I hope that if they change anything, they give Figment a bigger, better appearance.

  5. Totally love Figment. Next to Mickey Mouse, he is my favorite Disney character. Would love to see the original ride restored!

  6. Rebecca S says it all … Keep Figment but restore it to it’s original theme with Dreamfinder … can’t get rid of Figment … he is as much an icon of Epcot as is the giant golf ball!!!

  7. Without Figment there is no mascot for EPCOT!!! Mickey doesn’t really fit here as Magic Kingdom is his home. Kids loved Dreamfinder and Figment. Kids definitely need this mascot for EPCOT because there is not much to keep their interest in this park. EPCOT is mostly for adults and needs more things for kids. HELP SAVE FIGMENT!!!!! 🙂

  8. I would like them to keep the original theme and somehow update it for 21st century technology. Imagine (no pun intended) how wonderful the ride would be if it was just like when it opened…… only better. I am afraid, however, that if they updated it, it would somehow lose it’s original sense of wonder.

  9. They should bring back the original ride. It was GREAT! I have always thought Figment (of your imagination) was very cute and that Disney was highly creative in his name.

  10. BRING BACK THE ORIGINAL RIDE THAT HAS INSPIRED SO MANY. “He’s a FIGMENT of our Imagination.”

  11. Much as I love Figment and all he stands for regarding the limitlessness of potential when we employ our imaginations, Figment pretty much died already when they refurbished the original ride twice. Figment now is a mere facade of all he once stood for. They need the original ride back for Figment to have the meaning behind him, in order to persevere. Original Figment had a childish innocence, delight, and wonder regarding creating a world from our imaginations. When Figment has been reduced to now is a spoiled child acting out in childishly prankish ways.

  12. It is Disney that have caused the decline of this character not guests. Dreamfinder in the original form should be surveyed and not the “new ride”. Shame on you for changing it. As others have said it is timeless and most of all children actually NEED IMAGINATION IN THEIR LIFE. Its what DISNEY parks have been built on.

  13. Figment and DreamFinder ARE timeless and the original ride was. With a few updates in technology and adding a few aspects of the Hugely successful comic book, redoing the ride to was it originally was is the best thing to do.

    Figment is not just the mascot of the the Imagination pavilion, he is also kind of the mascot of EPCOT. When the park has a festival or an event, Figment is always involved.

    He needs to be nurtured and DreamFinder needs to be brought back. So many times I’ve heard people say that if it was the original ride, it would be one of their favorite rides. It should never have been changed. Update but not changed.

    With this, fans need to get together once again, like they did when Figment was first taken out of the ride. We need to show how important Figment and DreamFinder were and are. They heard us once, they could hear us again.

  14. Keep Figment!!!!! I adore him!!!
    Bring back the Dream finder and redo the attraction so it is similar to the original.
    How do I take the survey!?

  15. No! Not Figment! I LOVE Figment. Please, please, please don’t take my Figment away. “He is my Figment, only Figment. He makes me happy, when skies are grey. Oh please don’t take my Figment away.

  16. They need to bring back the original Journey into Imagination. It’s great to have technological aspects around the park, but I think a lot of people and especially children miss the old ride that was based off of using your imagination. I would absolutely LOVE to be able to take my nephew on the original ride and share a piece of my childhood with him.
