Rumor Inside Out to Replace Journey into Imagination with Figment?

I think it's just that those "in the know" have said that was being discussed, so we're bandying about ideas of how it could work. I agree that the film probably is a better fit for WoL, but nothing has really come out that Disney is even considering redoing the pavilion. I think at this point, they've kind of given up on a cohesive theme for Epcot and are simply using it as Magic Kingdom 2 with World Showcase. Frozen and GotG have made that pretty clear.
I’ll fix that!.....bbbuuuuuttt I need to finish school first ;)

He's not an IP in the way they view IP's currently. I'm not saying he's not but it's not the same thing to them, IMHO. It SHOULD be. But it doesn't appear to be. Just because they market him as the mascot and take advantage of those who love him to sell plush .....

I mean a massive two hour long commercial in theaters. The comic book was a good start. But they don't seem convinced to go all in on Figment. Again, just because he's the mascot and is on merch and sells plush. That's not really a big wig thing, Iger hasn't demanded Figment be the park mascot ;) . That's merchandise designing what sells. I think it all matters and Figment should be viewed as a successful IP, but I don't think they view him that way. It sucks but it's just how I see it. I don't think they value him enough right now to devote a new ride to him. But they should. And I hope beyond hope I'm wrong in how they view him.
It's true, but Disney needs to start recognizing that park attractions are IPs and should be treated as such. I'm willing to bet that "it's a small world" has more name recognition than Inside Out.

I get what you're saying but in all fairness Its a Small World has been around a little while longer and people experience it every day of the year in multiple theme parks. Before it was an attraction it had no recognition.

I've wondered if turning the ride into an Inside Out attraction and creating a figment 3D show in the old Kodak theater would work? whatever they do I agree figment needs to be somewhere.

There’s no reason WoL needs to be the health pavilion anymore. In fact, I’d rather see an IP-free new pavilion concept than see Inside Out. But I guess that’s not all too likely.

Ratatouille is a physically massive and expensive attraction. That is not a C/D ticket kind of scope.
All these people that want to label Rat c/d ticket lol... it’s the headliner of Wdsp and will
Be the headliner at Epcot. It is an E ticket... a weak one. Y’all need to go ride these rides and stop labeling rides based on YouTube viewings...

I know. But some, like certain bald Disney executives and some posters around here, need that breadcrumb trail to lead them down the correct, logical path. ;)
So we want an entire pavilion centered on the Id. Electroconvulsive therapy (aka Shock Treatment) ride, that would fit in with the new Disney Princess Dr Frankenfurter once the Fox deal closes. How do you make psychosocial orientation, neuroses, and mental illness into an entertaining attraction ? That's the larger question as that's what Inside Out is all about, that inner dialog.

One and Done.

Ive been there...Ive been on it. Calling it a "C/D ticket" level doesn't make it a bad ride or an unpopular one, it just categorizes its scale and scope. Peter Pan was considered a C ticket ride and its one of the most popular rides in the Magic Kingdom. As for Rat being the centerpiece of WDSP, its a ride that is based on the highest grossing animated movie in French history and its a very well executed one to boot.

Rat is a fantastic, fun and well executed ride, but it also is not on par with a PotC, HM, ToT or SE in scale or scope. Don't make an assumption that that means that it is bad...its actually fantastic and fun...It just isn't a "super headliner" in the classical definition.

I've ridden it and generously think it is a D-. Forgettable. I would guess that if you did a poll of people who have ridden it the C and D option would both beat out E. Who cares how big the building is and how much it cost. It is all about the experience. There are some that absolutely love it and think it to be an E, but I believe the consensus in DLRP is that it is a D. It will no doubt be popular and crowded for a couple of years but anything new at WDW always is. And it being the headliner at WDSP isn't exactly praise.
