in Epcot, Walt Disney World

Walt Disney World attractions and animatronics seem to be having several technical difficulties lately, including the fishing goose animatronic toppling over at Splash Mountain, the Elsa animatronic and Olaf animatronic both malfunctioning on Frozen Ever After, and one of the pirate animatronics reportedly falling over at Pirates of the Caribbean at Magic Kingdom not too long ago.

Now, another attraction is experiencing some issues with the audio during one portion of the ride. Over in EPCOT, while one Guest was riding the Journey Into Imagination With Figment attraction, they noticed there was completely no sound over in the Sight Lab.

If you’ve ever experienced this ride, you know throughout the experience, Figment sings to Guests as he and Dr. Nigel Channing both take you through a tour of the Sensory Labs. While in the Sight Lab, usually Figment tells you to “follow the bouncing Figment” as he sings to you the famous lyrics:

“One spark of light can light your fancy.
Your mind sees more than what your eyes see.
Your sense of sight can make your fancy fly.
There’s more to sight than meets the eye!”

However, when riding the attraction recently, there was no catchy tune and no instruction to tell you to “Follow the bouncing Figment”. You can see for yourself in the video below.
