My kids actually love that ride, I just wish they'd got to experience the original.

As a character, I LOVE Figment.

The attaction, Joruney into Imagination is also something I love. I remember bits and pieces of the original attraction (I lost my first pair of mouse ears on that attraction when I was 4), I still really enjoy the attraction on a whole.

Figment (the character) is well loved in my house. DH received one of those old Figment hats (the one where his brim is his nose and his teeth hung down from the brim. He got from a friend when he was a kid and instantly fell in love with Figment. He never actually went to WDW until about 20 years later. And I have been a Figment fan from my first trip in 1985.

The ride is fine too. Is it my favorite? No, but itís cute and relaxing and we like it and do it each trip. I donít mind the current version, but I wish DH could have seen the original. I also wish they still sold that hat since heís since lost his and that there was a wider range of Figment merchandise.

That's funny you posted this. I was playing my Disney CD when One Little Spark came on and my oldest son( in his 20s) said isn't that the song from the Figment ride- he then says "You know I kind of like that ride". I still ride it and enjoy it. The one thing at Epcot I can't stand at all is Captain EO, and I grew up liking and listening to Michael Jackson. The only person that I can give my opinion to and know they will most likely agree with me is my twin sister- anyone else, I just tell them that they need to try it themselves.

Definitely! My daughter was very disappointed that she couldn't get a Figment tee shirt on our last trip. They have them in adult sizes but nothing at all for kids.

Aww, I love Figment and I truly mean that! I prefer the original version but the one that's running now isn't half bad. I think it's cute and my DD loves it!

I have always loved figment. The first time I met him, he was with Dreamfinder.

I love Figment!!! I spent the most money on souvenirs on Figment items on my last trip to Disney World.

I love Figment!!! One of the best memories I have from my only trip to WDW with my DF back when I was 8 or 9. It was the original then of course and my DSis and I loved it! All of the interactive exhibits they had upstairs in the Imagination Pavillion were so cool. I was so disappointed when it changed.
