Could Walt Disney World Be Making Changes to Journey Into Imagination with Figment?

There have been rumors swirling for a while about possible changes to the iconic Epcot attraction, Journey Into Imagination with Figment.  With all the other changes going on at Epcot, there is no reason to believe that Figment would be safe from all of them.  The attraction isn’t very popular with the majority of guests, except for the Disney lifers that have a strong adoration for Figment.  It looks like now Walt Disney World is holding a casting call for new actors that seem to potentially further confirm the rumors around the attraction.


According to the casting call, Disney will be looking for male and female comedic actors.  These actors would be a new attraction to play scientific interns. Here is the description of what Disney is looking for directly from the Disney Audition page:

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
