Figment May Be Going Away Based on Walt Disney World Guest Survey

Walt Disney World frequently conducts research surveys to receive feedback and help guide new experiences and offerings that will be planned for the parks.  Based on recent surveys to Epcot guests, it looks like Disney is trying to determine Figment’s overall popularity.  If Disney is working to get a better understanding of his popularity for the majority of guests, this would likely mean that Figment could be removed as the mascot for the Imagination! pavilion, which would also include a complete change to the Journey Into Imagination with Figment attraction.

Here are the questions that have been asked recently:

  • Please tell us how familiar you are with Figment?  (includes a picture of Figment)
    • Choice options:
      • Never heard of him
      • Heard of him, but don’t know much about him
      • Know a little about him
      • Know a lot about him
  • How much do you personally like Figment?
    • Choice options:
      • 10 – Like him a lot
      • 9
      • 8
      • 7
      • 6
      • 5
      • 4
      • 3
      • 2
      • 1 – Don’t like him at all

It was announced previously at a Destination D fan event that Epcot would be one of the next parks to receive a major transformation, so this update to the Imagination! pavilion could be the start of the planned changes to come and what we may expect to see.  Figment became an instant hit and an icon for the entire theme park.  He also used to meet and greet with guests with his original partner in crime, Dreamfinder.  It would be very surprising for Figment to be completely removed due to Disney nostalgia, but an update to the attraction and the entire pavilion would definitely help breathe new life into Epcot.  We hope that more surveys will come out that may give us hints as to what may be in the works for Epcot.  As always, we will update you all as soon as we hear anything.

What do you all think about Figment possibly exiting Epcot in the near future?

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
