    Journey Into Imagination with Figment Gets Some Upgrades? Really? | WDW News Today
    Some people are like Slinkies.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.

    Maybe the fact that they finally put work/time/money into fixing it up is a good sign but the fact that even on the busiest days there is pretty much no wait still concerns me for this attraction's future.

    Love Figment ....miss the Dream Finder.
    This ride needs attention and new imagination to give it some wow!
    You unlock this door with the key of imagination. Beyond it is another dimension - a dimension of sound, a dimension of sight, a dimension of mind. You're moving into a land of both shadow and substance, of things and ideas.

    Dreamfinder made an appearance at the D23 presentation, which got a lot of hopes up for an eventual return. There was also some talk that negotiations were in process for a new sponsor, and the desire to overhaul the ride and bring him back...but It's been about 8 months since I heard that info.

    Re: Journey Into Imagination Quiet Rehab

    giving the Disney imagineers newfound love for nostalgia i would not be surprised if something was in the works in the near future... it seems WDI has gone through a major culture change in the last few years... i dunno if this has to do with Bob Iger and John Lasseter... though if it is i am glad that older attractions are getting love like Star Tours, Haunted Mansion, and JII... hopefully more is to come in the near future...

    Well you can't put stock into anything that comes out of D23. First was the Princess Fantasyland. That had to get fixed before they even broke ground. Then D23 announcement from Iger, No way is EO coming back right after Jackson's passing. It did. Getting the idea the D23 Disney folks statements during any D23 event is good that day, subject to change immediately. At least the Magazine is good.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Re: Journey Into Imagination Quiet Rehab

    While I think there is certainly a possibility of some sort of homage to Dreamfinder coming, the rumors that the entire old attraction will be making a return are just unfounded. The props are gone and there is now an Image Works and a gift shop where half the ride used to be. LOL

    The rumors aren't exactly "the old ride is coming back". They are just about a refurb, the form of which it would take is uncertain but was with an eye towards the original. It would certainly be "version 4.0" of the attraction.

    But as I said, I've heard zero since October. The only think that has since happened is that they finally removed the Kodak signs in December.

    As far as inside, they just recently replaced the generic construction wall cutting off most of what was ImageWorks with a lighted wall that plays some form of Simon game. Which tells me that wall isn't coming down in the short term...
