Journey Into Imagination with Figment Attraction
The story of Journey Into Imagination with Figment begins with The Institute’s beleaguered chairman Dr. Nigel Channing (played by Eric Idle) who sets out to prove how the five senses capture the imagination—but he’s upstaged by the mischievous Figment!
Prepare for surprises galore as you travel through a series of vivid, whimsical sensory labs. Learn about all 5 senses as Figment turns the lab upside down and causes quite a stink in the Smell Lab.
Let your imagination run wild on this marvelous, madcap musical adventure!
Fun Fact: For forty years, the delightful dragon has shown us how exciting it is to explore the world with our five senses – and our imaginations. Did you know he was the star of his own educational series? In 1988, Figment was introduced in school classrooms to teach students Language Arts Through Imagination.
Figment Meet and Greet at ImageWorks
Announced at Destination D23 in 2023, mingle with Figment the friendly dragon—and let your imagination soar at his new EPCOT meet and greet!
