Journey Into Imagination with Figment Brings Popular Purple Dragon Back
Figment is back! The playful purple dragon who captured millions of hearts at Walt Disney World Resort returns to Epcot in June to once again demonstrate the power of imagination. Journey Into Imagination with Figment invites guests to an open house at the Imagination Institute led by Dr. Nigel Channing, who plans to show how the five senses can influence a person’s imagination. The revamped attraction also heralds the return of “One Little Spark,” an uplifting song written by legendary Disney composers Richard M. and Robert B. Sherman for the attraction’s original opening in March 1983.

Fort Wilderness Transportation Test
Intercot's own WDWdriver reports a transportation test currently underway at Fort Wilderness.  For the time being, the Chip and Dale busses and the Crocketts and Boones are gone, replaced by an internal color coding system designed to help campers travel internally throughout the campground.  Campers may now choose a bus that will take them directly to their Fort Wilderness destination, including a bus depot to the major parks.
