We love Figment, too. I loved the old one and I like the new one, bt ut the one in between was awful. My dd, who never saw any but the current one, adores Figment.

Figment by its lonesome, no. But with "DreamFinder" you bet.

I grew up with the original ride - I absolutely LOVED Dreamfinder and Figment. When they changed the ride over, I was devastated.

Ditto this. Will always love Figment, even in his tragically diminished state...

I love Figment, but then again I've never experienced the old version.

I love Figment! The song is so catchy.

Of course I love Figment! It's our favorite ride at Epcot. We miss the original one, but we still manage to enoy the current one. We ride it multiple times each visit.

Wish they'd bring back the old one!!!

Not the character so much, but the ride is cute.

Figment is my favorite Disney character. A lot of that has to do with the nostalgia factor a lot of posters have mentioned.

But to each his own -- I would never say about an attraction "it's no Pirates of the Caribbean."

I love Figment... When it's 98 degrees at 2:30 in the afternoon at the end of July, I put in my earbud and close my eyes and take a much needed snooze. Other than a cool, smooth ride, its a waste of time (for me).

I love Figmet; he just needs a ride that's worthy of him. I don't blame him for being brattier than he used to be, stuck with a chump like Dr. Nigel Channing and a bunch of cheap 1990's video screens.

I love figment. I got a nice keychain of him years ago while he had disappeared. I get so many nice comments on him.
