Figment’s Inspiration Station at The Odyssey is a Must-Visit
One of the most exciting spots to stop this year is Figment’s Inspiration Station, which is located at The Odyssey. This brand-new “booth” – technically, it’s much bigger than your typical festival booth! – is offering an array of food and drinks all themed around Figment. You can expect plenty of color and some exciting flavor combinations from everything on the menu here!
You’re definitely going to want to try the Fruit Pizza, which is a brand-new item featuring a slice of watermelon topped with compressed cantaloupe, berries, and berry balsamic. This dish is plant-based and gluten- and wheat-friendly, too.
Another highly anticipated pick of this year’s festival is the Rainbow Cake, which is a stunner to look at! Each slice of cake features five layers of rainbow-colored cake, creamy frosting, and is topped off with freeze-dried Skittles candies.
You also won’t want to skip out on the Grape Smoothie, a nonalcoholic beverage that’s a whole lot of fun. This Figment-inspired purple-hued drink is topped with an explosion of freeze-dried Skittles candies and served in an adorable Figment glass. It’s sure to be a hot item all festival long!
Don’t Miss All the Figment Merch
It’s no secret that Figment-themed merch is the star of the festival year after year – and this year, it’ll be no different! But there’s so much more to discover for 2023 than the returning popcorn bucket.
Throughout EPCOT, you’ll find Figment on everything from brand-new tumblers to exclusive Annual Passholder t-shirts to spirit jerseys.
Two standout merch picks that’ll be hot for this year’s festival goers? The Figment Chalkboard Framed Mug, which features Figment on one side and a blank back where you can write messages in chalk right on your cup. And the new Figment Munchlings Plush, which reimagines the beloved dragon as a fig bar, is an adorable piece you won’t want to miss.
If you do want to grab a Figment Premium Popcorn Bucket filled with rainbow popcorn, you can use Mobile Order in the My Disney Experience App. You can search for the popcorn bucket in-app and place an order for a set arrival window. For the 2023 Festival of the Arts, a virtual queue will also replace those lengthy in-person lines we saw last year.
