And finally, a member of the Walt Disney archives also talked about something this morning that is exciting for Figment fans! At destination D23, there is an exhibition of Walt Disney archives with all sorts of interesting pieces to see. One of those pieces that fans can see is Machine to catch dreams of Journey to the imagination!
The piece had been on display at Mouse Gear, but when Mouse Gear was reimagined (the Creations Shop is now EPCOT’s new flagship store), archives began to introduce this piece to their collection.
The condition they are in is the way they got them from Mouse Gear.
But the cast member shared that they have some of the pieces from the original attraction that weren’t there and hope to restore it closer to how it was in the original attraction.
Since the piece is now part of the Disney archives, it may end up in future exhibitions. We will certainly be attentive to any information in this regard.
If you go to the Destination D23 exhibition, be sure to go through the 50 Years of Bringing Home the Magic screen. You will learn all about this special piece …
… and see it in the flesh!
We’ll keep an eye out for more Disney news and let you know what we find.
