I hope they don't knock down the entire imagination building. But i wouldn't say no to bringing back Dream finder and figment if it was possible. Inside the top of the pyramid is a conference room i think where the old ride was. Not 100% sure though.

I really think they should redo the ride to be for all ages and no just a kiddy version. I know there are still many adults that love the purple sand orange dragon like creature.

Jason Grandt (@43squaremiles) who officialy brought back the "Orange Bird" has been drawing a lot of Figment doing odd stuff lately (like playing with a puppy??) exactly like he did for the bird before it was re-released. Of course he can't say anything about official stuff, but that is the sort of thing he does. Also posting comments like, "I just can't get enough of Epcot lately" on a nice photo of that pavilion goes in that direction somewhat. Only time will tell I suppose.

They also grow some of the food for the restaurants in the land building in there. I went to my cp graduation there .

The Land and Imagination are two separate pavilions. The food is grown in The Land pavilion, where Soarin' and "Living With The Land" are. The latter takes you through where they grow things. They are served at the Garden Grill in the same building.

They might as well knock down the building since The Imagination ride is no where near as enjoyable as the original with Dreamfinder. Disney should have left that classic ride alone.

So this rumor is shot down. I am currently standing in front of the building. There are no bulldozers knocking anything down. In fact the current wait time is 5 minutes.

I am not sure they would level the building. With one other pavilion basically empty/dormant with no future plans I can't see them doing this. Having said that...I would love to see them take this pavilion offline for say 6 months for some much needed changes. Captain EO was "revolutionary" at the time but this is the 21st century...we need to move on. The figment journey is quite sad by today's standards. While I believe Figment should always be a character in Epcot it may be time to re-imagine him with some pixie dust and create an entirely new experience.

Also, keep in mind that Disney just spend a small fortune on Magic Bands and Star Wars. They clearly see a revenue stream with these two products while the Imagination pavilion has only minimal upside.

Maybe it's just a very large scrim that makes it look like the building is still there...

Could be the people I saw walking into the building were bulldozer drivers, or better yet maybe it's a new bulldozer ride?

I rode Figment on 12/6 with about 30 friends. There was a line out to the front door with guests waiting to ride.
