I do not like him and I know some old timers will disagree but I find the original version of the attraction grating.

We love Figment and ride the attraction every year. It amazes me everytime we are on it how much better the original was..you would think it would be the opposite, worse version first..lol
I have so many pictures of my brother and I with the Dreamfinder and Figment. Our favorite thing to do after the ride was to go upstairs and try to get picked to be in the green screen movie..lol
I will still ride everytime i am there, my kids love the ride and Figment..although i really wish they could have experienced the original.

Figment the dragon: I would take him home and keep him as a pet if I could.
Figment the ride: Awful. Terrible. Old version was the literal best thing in the world, no exaggeration.

My kids (and DH!) love Figment. I go along for the ride. They never got to experience the original attraction or the good part of the pavilion.

My son loves Figment. He has loved it since he was 3 and he is 6 now and still talks about riding it while we are home. That right there makes me love it, even if I do prefer the old version.

Figment lives at our house. We have a picture of him in my son's bedroom, we have a cd with the music on it that is often played and we have a stuffed Figment that sleeps on the bottom bunk of my son's bed.

Yep we like Figment.

My daughter LOVES Figment. This is a must do several times each trip. I wish they had shirts in kids sizes in the gift shop as she looks each time we go but we have only see adult ones.

People who say it's the worst ride at WDW never got to experience the magic that was the original.

I don't know if I can ever forgive the imagineers for what they did to this ride.

The current version just might be the worst ride at WDW (well, maybe that Stitch thing over at MK), but the original was one of the best.

I will always love Figment!!

I never saw the previous version of the ride so I like the current. No it's not a headliner but I'm glad WDW offers rides that aren't all headliners (read busy all the time).

I love Figment the charecter and wish they would bring him back out in the parks.

I like Figment, all cute & purple! I have nothing to compare the current "journey" with, but it was okay. I went there knowing that there had been changes made & I wondered how much better it probably was before.
