    If bringing back Dreamfinder also means a return of Figment's original childlike personality, then I'm all for it!

    In his current incarnation, Figment more closely resembles a tiny purple sociopath than the inexperienced young explorer who traveled with Dreamfinder.


    The original Figment was whimsical.

    The current Figment is obnoxious.

    Maybe Figment's is letting loose his pent up anger from loosing Dreamfinder and being put with that hack Channing by being a pain in the ***.
    Ever thought of that?

    Re: ? about Journey into Imagination (original)

    Figment seems so ridiculously marketable, why not just make him solo most of the next ride? I don't know why he always needs a straight man character to off of, such as the babbling Dreamfinder or Channing who spends over half of this Imagination ride thinking entirely "inside the box."

    I'm not saying he shouldn't have a buddy, I'm sure they could work Dreamfinder in there somewhere in a minor role, but characters like Mickey, Stitch, etc work just as well alone as they do with partners. Theme park characters have to tell their stories in a lot less time than movie characters get, and after riding JIYIWF or whatever, I didn't really understand the character any more than I did before, except that he pulls pranks and his name is a play on "figment of imagination."

    I walked off the ride actually thinking "That wasn't a very fun ride, I wonder why he has so many online fans?"

    Bill, I've answered that question and gave my thoughts about it in post #10.

    He's just trying to make Channing nuts so he'll quit so Dreamfinder can get his job back. He misses his "papa".

    Re: ? about Journey into Imagination (original)

    Folks on another WDW-based discussion board (rhymes with 'tragic') are claiming that a new Dreamfinder is definitely being planned for this rehab.

    One poster went into further detail, stating it will take 8 months for the work to be done, so it can reopen next summer for Epcot's 25th celebration, like Soarin did for the DL's 50th. If the rehab gets greenlit, it will be announced this fall when the new seacabs debut at Nemo Seas or whatever it's called now.

    Apparently a new film will replace HISTA, and the Imagination Institute theme will be scrapped. Same ride track, but queue area will be redone and first floor Imageworks will be removed. Old Imageworks upstairs will be updated and reopened.

    This is great news!

    I hope to see a green light for this project in the near future!

    Did they say why? That makes little sense to me if they are not expanding the ride.

    I wouldn't bet money on the upstairs reopening. The barrier to that one is lawsuit/attorney related, according to what I've read, and I can't see them compromising on (perceived) safety.

    Whether or not you think they're blowing things out of propotion, nobody's going to tell the lawyers where to stick their liability concerns.

    Steve Jobs and John Lasseter can and will.

    No they won't, because if someone does get hurt it lands on their shoulders for actively ignoring the warnings. It would be the biggest scandal since DL's "we have to operate these rides to failure in order to save money."

    Welcome to the real world, Fantasyland is over that-a-way.

    Obviously the upstairs ImageWorks will be reopened. Apparently, the current ImageWorks will become the new lobby, queue and load area.

    I'm betting it has to do with handicapped escape in a fire?

    But if they are not changing the track, why will they need that huge of an area for load lobby and queue when they have one already? Especially when the current Imageworks is a nice little Kodak shop, and there is no way Disney will ditch a shop at the end of a ride...new Disney or old Disney.
