Was Figment’s signature removed from the concrete at Epcot?

A fun easter egg may have been removed from the concrete at Epcot. Once upon a time, the character Figment signed his name into an area of concrete located just outside the Journey Into Imagination With Figment attraction. The character reportedly used a tree branch to sign his name in a backstage area while waiting for a film shoot.

Now, it appears his signature has been removed.

The signature was previously found just past a service gate that cast members could use to go backstage, as seen in the photo at the top of the page from @TrainPlane3 in October. It originally was in a location accessible to guests, but the gate was later moved.

The signature was a couple of feet past the gate in the backstage area, causing many easter egg seekers to venture into the unauthorized area. The updated photo reportedly shows that the signature has been removed as of December 31, 2018.

Given the recent events at Disney, such as the bizarre Buzzy situation and the increase in “urban explorers” trying to access backstage areas, it may have made sense to remove this easter egg that tempted many to go backstage. Some will view this as Disney removing a piece of Epcot history, but we see it as a backstage change that was never officially a piece of the park in the first place.

Instead of being sad over some new concrete, we’ll focus our attention on trying to get Disney to bring back the old Figment meet and greet character in Epcot.
