    Video of the Dreamfinder appearance at Destination Disney



    I can only hope this is sign of not just nostalgia in the company... but confidence that the original JII attraction may soon be restored to glory.

    This scene almost brought me to tears

    Almost? It definitely brought tears to my eyes. Dreamfinder and Figment together again? EPIC.

    Ok Disney, see that standing ovation they got just walking out on the stage? See how much we miss this pair TOGETHER? Get a clue and BRING DREAMFINDER BACK! You know why Imagination now is a walk-on? Because it SUCKS (sure Figment is there but he's really a shell of his former self).

    I remember when EO came back last summer, Inside the Magic posted a video (it's on YouTube if you want to look) and they talked with an Imagineer and asked if there are any plans for the rest of the Imagination pavilion and the Imagineer said they had BIG plans in the works, but he wasn't at liberty to say what. I'm hoping for a complete overhaul bringing a refreshed, updated version of the original attraction (and the return of the beautiful blue and purple color scheme on/in the building & queue area), reopening the upstairs Image Works with updated exhibits...

    I would give my right arm, left leg and my firstborn for this to happen. Who do I have to bribe to make this happen?

    I must confess I wouldn't actually give up body parts or children, but I'd love to see the original return. That said, has there actually been any real discussion of this happening, other than the wishful thinking shared by fans like me?

    Like I said in my above post, Imagineers have said they have BIG plans for the Imagination pavilion, but are not at liberty to say exactly what right now. We'll have to wait and see what happens.

    Thank you so much for posting this! Meeting Dreamfinder and Figment when I was younger is one of my favorite WDW memories

    That was awesome! I really miss the old ride. That brought back memories. I really hope that the company saw everyone give a standing ovation and do something positive which is bring back Figment and Dreamfinder together. I know they scrapped parts of the old ride but even if its something new I think everyone would enjoy it than what is there now.

    My main issues with the current ride are its overuse of video screens, and Figment acting like he's hopped up on goofballs and corn syrup.

    I'm for anything that moves things the direction of the original EPCOT Center. That's great seeing them on stage.

    Here's my (crazy) theory on Figment's current behavior.

    With Dreamfinder, he had a "hint of childish delight", which made him adorable and inquisitive.

    Then Dreamfinder was ripped away from him and he's hoppin' mad! He'd decided he's going to make life for Dr. Nigel Channing a living heck by being annoying (he studied Bugs Bunny cartoons to prepare for this). He's hoping he can finally drive Dr. Channing away and his buddy Dreamfinder will once again come back, and all will be right again.

    I can't believe my eyes! What did he say to Figment about the glasses, I couldn't understand due to the bad audio.

    Check out the comments/details under the video.. the whole dialogue is typed out there. It's great the poster did that

    "Will you take those off? We aren't going to see 'Captain EO'."

    "These are your fans. They're the people who buy all the Figment pins and Figment shirts... What? No, I'm not going to sell you."

    "This is D23. These are all the official Disney Fans. Although I think a few of the younger ones are confused as to why you aren't 8 feet tall."
