This awesome t-shirt is a souvenir from the Epcot Center at Walt Disney World in Florida and the shirt features a graphic of the adorable cartoon dragon, Figment holding a pot of gold. This little purple dragon was first introduced as the star of his own attraction in Epcot called Journey into Imagination. He also served as mascot for the park, particularly during the 80s when the park first opened.
Journey into Imagination used an omnimover system to take riders on a magical trip through the Realms of Imagination with Figment and the Dreamfinder. The ride was designed by Tony Baxter, who was responsible for a number of other hit Disney attractions such as Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Splash Mountain, Star Tours, and Indiana Jones Adventure: Temple of the Forbidden Eye.
Disney fans were so fond of figment, that they were disappointed when a 1999 re-design of Journey Into Imagination almost completely removed the little dragon. In order to appease upset Disney enthusiasts, a third incarnation of the ride was developed that reintroduced Figment as a prominent character.
