A new Figment MagicBand+ is available on shopDisney. The MagicBand+ can be used at either Walt Disney World Resort or Disneyland Resort. Disney does not provide returns or exchanges for MagicBands.
The MagicBand is blue with a simple version of the Imagination Institute’s logo, featuring a yellow gear and a lightbulb, on the puck. The logo is repeated across the band with standalone lightbulbs and stars, as well as large images of Figment.
MagicBand+ is the latest iteration of MagicBand, which guests can use in place of a physical ticket to enter Disney Parks, attach PhotoPass pictures, make purchases, and more. MagicBand+ is available at Walt Disney World Resort and was also the first version of MagicBand to launch at Disneyland Resort. It is rolling out on Disney Cruise Line as DisneyBand.
Unlike previous styles, these newer bands interact with the environment of Disney Parks. They light up and vibrate, synching with Disney attractions and nighttime spectaculars. They interact with Disney Fab 50 statues and can be used to play games like Star Wars: Batuu Bounty Hunters at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in both Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Disneyland Park. MagicBand+ interaction is also available with Disney100 decorations at Disneyland Resort.
Figment & Journey Into Imagination
Figment has been a staple of EPCOT since 1983 when he was introduced as part of Journey Into Imagination. Figment and the mystical Dreamfinder helped riders learn to explore and appreciate the limitless power and potential of their own creative minds.
The famous purple dragon and his attraction have had a rough few decades. There have been three immensely different iterations of the ride to varying degrees of success, failure, love, and pure, loathsome hatred. Generally, the public regards the original version as overwhelmingly superior, the second as one of the worst attractions of all time, with the third and current design somewhere in between. Our full and in-depth Figment history is available here, in honor of Journey Into Imagination’s recent 40th anniversary.
Figment’s popularity endures despite unpopular changes to his ride and park. He is frequently featured on merchandise, particularly for EPCOT festivals, and sometimes on runDisney medals.
In September 2022, Deadline broke the news that Disney is developing a movie based on Figment. The feature film will be produced by Seth Rogen’s Point Grey Pictures, with Dan Hernandez and Benji Samit (“Pokémon Detective Pikachu”) serving as writers. There have been no major updates since.
A Figment meet and greet is scheduled to begin late this summer, but a date hasn’t been announced.
