4th Figment?

There have been some rumors about another remodel of Journey into Imagination with Figment, And pushing these rumors are some Dreamfinder merch.

So, What would you think of a new Figment makeover?

I think if they do make a new one that they should reopen the upstairs of Imageworks, I went up there,It's really cool!

Upstairs will never reopen it was closed due to fire code.

The only rework I want is the trackless ride system from Poohs Huney Hut!

As long as figment stays in some form or another, I don't care. Just don't get rid of my childhood fav!

If that is true, could you please explain why that area is used for special events?

I think it would be cool if they brought back a Figment based ride as many visitors ie younger ones won't know the origins of him. Plus it would be great if they could at least do something with the pavilion as its getting a bit bit of an eyesore.

It rarely is and when it is there is not that many people. I believe another problem was evacuation just in general. Only way up
Or down is the Spiral staircase which is a nightmare in an emergency and the the escalator.

Only if they make it a LOT better. It's our least favourite ride (apart from thrill rides).

Talking

There is always speculation in regards to the return of Dreamfinder and Figment. Hopefully, at some point, Disney will decide to overhual the ride into something that pays respect to the original creation, but is exciting and uses state of the art technology and effects. As far as image works, I do not understand why they cannot create an emergency exit on the back side of the building (at least an exterior set of stairs or ramp). There is a handicap fire proof emergency room right next to image works incase of a fire people that cannot go down the stairs were to be brought into the room. Perhaps a ramp could be installed from this room to the backstage first floor area.

In any case, just to see some improvement to the current state of the ride, building, theme would be an improvement.

They should shut down Captain EO, it's out of date and irrelevant, IMO

I also agree with your comment on Captain EO, it is very outdated. A new film would do wonders for the imagination pavilion. Perhaps even one on imagineering?
