The ONE Thing EPCOT Fans Are Thinking But Don’t Want To Admit About Figment

EPCOT has just been a buzz of excitement lately.


Journey of Water, Inspired by Moana will open on October 16th, and it was announced that Moana would join the lineup of characters you can meet at EPCOT. However, that’s not the only new character meet and greet! Figment started greeting guests in the Imagination Pavilion of EPCOT on September 10th, and… we thought it would be fun to ask our readers over on Facebook what THEY thought of the new character experience.

We asked our readers for their thoughts on Figgy, and while most of the comments were very positive, there was a common theme among the more negative ones. And they made us laugh. 😂


Many of our readers are in agreement that the Figment character just looks WEIRD. Our readers feel that he is NOT the cute and cuddly dragon from our imagination. Someone even called him “nightmare fuel.”


I mean… He IS really tall… and a bit… thinner than we imagined. One reader referred to him as the “Wish version” of Figment while another called him “creepishly handsome.” Our favorite comment of all referred to him as “Figzilla.”

Commenters who loved EPCOT way back in the day said that Figment is supposed to be around three feet tall and… well, huggable. This Figment is 6 feet tall with a very slender neck and a rather small head. This made our readers feel creeped out by the character. A few folks mentioned that perhaps Disney would have been better off by bringing back the old puppet version of Figment that once graced EPCOT rather than putting a taller human in a costume.


Our readers really came through with this one and definitely made us laugh. Stay tuned for more opportunities to give us your opinion on all things Disney! Make sure to follow along for more Disney updates and news.
