More Figment would never be a bad thing, right?

Disney World, located in Orlando, Florida, is a magical destination that captures the hearts of millions of guests each year. Walt Disney World Resort is made up of four theme parks, with each offering a unique and enchanting experience. Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Disney’a Animal Kingdom, each park is just as magical but with different attractions, features, and magical moments for Walt Disney World guests to experience.

One standout attraction in EPCOT, one of Disney World’s theme parks, is The Journey into Imagination with Figment. Figment is a charming and mischievous purple dragon who serves as the mascot for the Imagination! pavilion at EPCOT. Originally introduced in 1983, Figment quickly became a beloved character among Disney enthusiasts. The character’s name is derived from the concept of “figment of the imagination,” reflecting the essence of creativity and imagination that Disney World strives to foster.

Figment’s character embodies the spirit of creativity and curiosity, encouraging guests to unleash their imaginations and think outside the box. The dragon’s playful personality and the colorful world he inhabits make the Journey into Imagination with Figment ride a favorite among families and Disney fans. Fans tend to sing along with Figment during their journey into imagination, “One little spark, of inspiration Is at the heart, of all creation. Right at the start, of everything that’s new. One little spark, lights up for you.” Is this tune stuck in your head now.

The Journey into Imagination with Figment ride is an immersive experience that takes Disney World guests on a journey through the realms of imagination. As guests board this sensory adventure, Figment appears at various points, encouraging them to embrace their creativity and explore the limitless possibilities of their imagination. The ride incorporates vibrant colors, playful music, and innovative sensory effects to create an engaging and memorable experience for guests of all ages.

Beyond the ride, Figment has become a cultural icon associated with the joy and wonder of Disney World. The character is often featured in merchandise, including plush toys, clothing, and accessories, allowing Disney guests to take a piece of the magical dragon home with them.

Disney fans, or better yet, Figment fans, went wild over the Figment popcorn buckets that were available for purchase last year and, when Disney announced that Figment was getting a meet and greet at his attractions, guests waited in line for hours to meet the beloved dragon. Some Disney guests waited 8-plus hours for either the popcorn bucket or a chance to hug Figment.

Disney has since realized that fans love Figment and would love to see more Figment coming to Disney parks. In a viral TikTok, @Dylantpe made a video asking Disney what is going on with Figment.  This TikTok features Figment at the doors of Disney Imagineering about to walk in. While we are unsure if this is an “easter egg hint” or just Disney just having fun, there’s no doubt that this is a tease and fans want to know what might be happening. Could it be a new ride? Many fans think so.
