The plush comes on a purple plastic clip.
The original Journey Into Imagination attraction opened in EPCOT on March 5, 1983, a few months after the rest of the park. It featured Figment and the Dreamfinder, two original characters who taught guests about the power of imagination and became pseudo-mascots for EPCOT.
The popular attraction closed for an update in 1998 and reopened the next year as Journey Into Your Imagination. This version of the ride didn’t include Dreamfinder, and Figment only appeared briefly and wasn’t a featured player. Journey Into Your Imagination was universally hated and only lasted a few years, closing in 2001.
Journey Into Imagination with Figment opened in 2002. The updated ride was similar to Journey Into Your Imagination but with Figment as a main character alongside Dr. Nigel Channing.
Though the third iteration of the ride has now been around the longest, guests still call for a return to the original Journey Into Imagination — widely considered one of the best Disney Parks rides in history — or at least an update to the ride that would bring back the Dreamfinder and the spirit of the original attraction. Recent videos of Figment visiting Walt Disney Imagineering headquarters suggest a possible update or may have just been teasing the upcoming Figment film.
