Epcot’s Annual Figment Festival–Known as The International Festival of the Arts
It’s January and that means Epcot’s International Festival of the Arts–which really looks more like Epcot’s Annual Figment Festival. Figment is everywhere–except in a well-designed attraction. Still, it is the most popular non IP Disney character in any North American Park (Duffy holds reign in Asia) and like the original attraction, it represents creativity and the arts–and that’s what’s always been part of this festival. Join us as we visit Epcot and experience the food, the art, the entertainment, and the retail of this annual tradition now in its 8th year. We’ll look at not only why this event is so centered on a purple dragon, but how the attraction itself could better align with the festival itself.

Only this time, we see two sides of the show, the first part in front of Spaceship Earth at the entrance, and the second part from the CommuniCore Gardens on the other side. It’s a “backside of water” experience as you see all the lights in Spaceship earth align with the lights of CommuniCore Gardens.

A Century of Powerful Disney Insights Book
You can order my newest book, “A Century of Powerful Disney Insights” on Amazon. It’s a great way to celebrate the 100th anniversary of The Walt Disney Company. In over 100 years, The Walt Disney Company has emerged as one of the most successful entertainment entities across the globe. In this, the first of two volumes, we study the first 50 years of Disney, beginning with Walt and Roy. We look at major milestones and not only see the evolution of an organization begun in a garage, but how it truly became so beloved to millions around the world. From Oswald the Lucky Rabbit and Mickey Mouse through Snow White and Cinderella, from the Mouseketeers to Mary Poppins, and from Disneyland to Walt Disney World, we share stories and insights from 1923 to 1973. We hope you’ll be inspired with ideas and how you can apply these stories to your own life and work.
