Cool Does anybody actually like Figment?

Come on, nobody likes figment, or do they?
The ride isn't too bad but it is no Pirates of the Caribbean. Please state your comments on the subject!

Actually, I liked the first version of the ride and Figment was somewhat better in it in my opinion.

DD still loves it! She fell in love when she was 5 and we still ride it 5+ times a trip. There is no line, its a sit down deal, we tolerate it for her.

Um... Check the name

However I will not ride the current ride. IT STINKS.

When I was a child, my favorite memories at Disney are of the original Journey in Your Imagination with Figment and the long lost Dreamfinder. Here is a clip if you haven't had the pleasure. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TI2VcQRMOM0

I'm just biding my time with Disney to get it right again. We all know Honey I Shrunk the Audience won't be around forever, and since the current Journey ride is based on it, when they change it, they'll redo Journey (again).

Love Him

Many many great memories of Figment as a child at EPCOT.... still love him, although not a huge fan of the ride re-do. I wish the ride was as it was in the 80's

I LOVE the character Figment, and I must admit, I like the ride too. The current version is not as good as the original version, but I like all of the whimsical scenes with Figment in it.

Neat. That brings back happy memories! I actually have a small picture in a frame in my kitchen of my 2 kids with their picture taken with Figment and Dreamfinder from 1993!! The picture always brings a smile to my face.

I love Figment!!! I agree too that the new ride is lame but we still go on it and enjoy, but it is so not how it used to be back in the early 90's when I first went to Disney!!

They need to bring back the original Journey into Imagination complete with Dreamfinder!!! While they're at it, bring back the Odyssea restaurant too!!!

YES. I like Figment and believe JII is better for him being in it. Like many others here, I first met Figment in the original Imagination attraction. Also like many others, the main reason I like Figment is that I remember the original. I ride the current version every time I'm there, but usually not more than once. I'm sure that if this version were my first impression of Figment and the attraction itself, I would not care one way or the other about Figment. I probably wouldn't ride more than once ever. To me, Figment is a key part of "going to WDW." And so, I sit through this version and try to wait patiently for the (rumored) refurb and (hopefully) the return to its previously glory.

I wish we had gone on the Old version of Figment. We go on this every time we go to Disney World. Our kids really enjoyed it when they were really little. It is hoakie as can be but we do it just for kicks. It's part of our good memories more than anything.

I love Figment...and Dreamfinder! We still occasionally ride this lame ride just to see Figment but he is being badly wasted. Much as Six Flags wastes the Looney Tunes characters.

This ride looks like they subbed it out as a 6th grade class project because they HAD to have something fill that building so they threw some track down and had the kids rummage through their garage and attic to find some junk to paint and throw up on the walls. Even the imagination playground is barely amusing for more than a few seconds of swinging your arms around or stepping on lights. I would rather ride IASW and get stuck at the end than ride this ride now. Hopefully their contract will require changes soon.
