With the Festival of the Arts at Epcot comes a special scavenger hunt called Figment’s Brush with the Masters. We love doing these scavenger hunts it becomes a fun thing to do especially when the crowds are heavy and you just don’t feel like waiting two hours for Test Track.
What is Figment’s Brush with the Masters Scavenger Hunt
This is your chance to help Figment learn about art on this scavenger hunt around World Showcase. And you will maybe even become an art expert yourself, too! To get started, purchase your map and stickers, map purchase locations are in the next paragraph below.
Then, search for Figment hiding inside art inspired by famous works at each World Showcase Pavilion. You will be on the hunt for the Figment-themed picture frame. Every time you find Figment, add the corresponding sticker to the Pavilion on your map.
Once your map is complete, return your map to Disney Traders or World Traveler for an artful small keepsake!
How Much Does Figment’s Scavenger Hunt Cost?
You can purchase the map with the stickers for $9.99 plus tax. If you are an Annual Passholder or DVC member be sure to use your discount they work on all the festival scavenger hunts. The maps are available to purchase at:
- Creations Shop
- Port of Entry
- World Traveler
We also spotted the maps available at some of the merchandise booths in World Showcase just keep your eye out, they are around.
Pro Tip: You don’t need the map to play, it’s fun to have the stickers and a checklist but the hidden Figments are in each country whether you buy the map or not. If you are looking to save some cash skip the map and fun toy redemption and just see if you can find him in every country.
Locations and Answers to Figments Scavenger Hunt at Epcot
There is a painting of Figment to find in every country located around the lagoon at Epcot. Some paintings are found outside but the majority of them are placed in indoor locations.
SPOILER ALERT: Below I will be sharing exact locations and pictures so if you don’t want to have the answers given then please stop reading.
To find Figment in Mexico you will need to head inside the pyramid. Once all the way inside, you want to head back to the shopping area. Here you will be looking for the shop, La Tienda Encantada, that sells jewelry and accessories. Behind the cash register, there are stairs, you will want to look up from there to find the Figment painting.
The Landscape Near the Volcano Figment is a spin on the classic artwork. You will find Figment not only in the bottom of the gold frame but also in the smoke coming out of the volcano.
Anna and Elsa are going to help lead the way to painting in Norway. Right next to their meet and greet is the Wandering Reindeer shop you will want to head into this spot and go left. Or if you want to meet Anna and Elsa this is right outside of the area they dump you into as you exit.
You will want to look for a familiar trio of trolls that used to send you over the falls in the old Maelstrom attraction in Norway.
You will want to meander to the furthest back gift shop location to find this painting. It’s outside on the street before you enter the gift shop it will be located on your right.
The Ox and the Dragan is a spin on the famous piece of art called Picture of Spring Ox.
Head back into Germany and go into the shop Volkskunst (it’s the clock store) on the right of the Pavillion. It’s just once you enter into the second area on the left.
The Heart of all Creation with Figment is based on Johann Liss’ Cupid.
In Italy, you will once again need to head into a gift shop this one is for all things wine. The shop is right in the front and is called La Bottega Italiana.
The Mona Figment is inspired by none other than the Mona Lisa by Italian artist Leonardo da Vinci (who you can spot on Spaceship Earth).
By the bathrooms, you will find the Art of Disney store. And inside the art store right by the cash registers, you will find Figment Crossing the Deleware. It blends in pretty well since there is so much art on showcase in this store.
This piece is inspired by Leutze’s depiction of Washington’s attack on the Hessians at Trenton on December 25, 1776.
Now it’s time for my favorite Epcot giftshop. Mitsukoshi Department Store in Japan is where you will find Figment. I like to think of it as the middle of the gift shop is it’s the section where all the adult clothing is, right before the store takes a bend.
The Wave of Inspiration features Figment in a boat riding on a wave. This piece is inspired by the famous work of art The Great Wave off Kanagawa. The original is a woodblock print by Japanese artist Hokusai, created in late 1831. The Great Wave off Kanagawa depicts three boats moving through a stormy sea and Mount Fuji is visible in the background.
You have some walking to do once you get to Morocco. Head all the way towards the back bazaar shopping area and look for Aladdin’s lamp and then hang a right. This is where you will want to start looking up high, you will see a Sangria stand it’s above that.
This is Figment of Figment, definitely a more abstract representation of Figment. I think it’s reminiscent of the beautiful tilework inside this pavilion.
This one was so dang tricky for us! We didn’t catch it until we were leaving the Remy area in the back of the France Pavillion. It’s on the back window of the shop on that pathway that leads you to Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure. It’s the window display for Plume et Palette.
The reflection makes this piece hard to see but it’s a spin on Monet’s famous series of paintings he did of his water-lily pond and garden at Giverny. You can see Figment standing on his famous pond bridge admiring the water lilies.
This piece of artwork is inside of a window of a giftshop. You will need to be outside to spot this window front. Head into the United Kingdom Pavillion down the cobblestone path like you are going to head to the back concert area and you will spot this shop entrance on the right.
This piece of art is inspired by The Blue Boy (c. 1770). The famous painting was done by Thomas Gainsborough an English portrait artist. Instead of the original subject of a young boy, we see Figment trying to squeeze into the same outfit.
To find Figment in Canada you will want to head up the stairs and look for the Trading Post Refreshments store. This time you will need to go inside the shop. Inside the shop look up high on the left wall and you will spot Figment in the forest.
This piece is inspired by In the Woods of British Columbia by Emily Carr. You can see Figment dancing along the pathway in the woods of the painting.
Prizes for Figment’s Brush with the Masters Scavenger Hunt
Good news! Whether you complete your hunt for art or not you can redeem your prize once you have purchased the map. So if your trip is short and the kiddos don’t make it for a full day of Epcot fun, you will still be able to get the prize.
This year the Figment scavenger hunt prizes are little figurines and paint sets, you have the choice between four different paint-your-own figurines. Figment, Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, and Goofy are your character choices, while supplies last. Of course, I chose Figment in honor of the festival’s mascot.
Once you take your map to the store they will stamp your map to note that you have redeemed your prize. If you ask real nice they will stamp wherever on the map you like, just in case you didn’t want the stamp to cover something up. In our experience, we haven’t needed to show our receipt, and we get to keep our map as a souvenir too!
I have been visiting the parks annually since my parents first brought me at just a year old. Recently I was able to fulfill my life long dream of being a Florida local and moved from the wintery Northeast to the sunshine and fun of central Florida. Now I am hoping to share my Disney knowledge with you so you can have the best vacation possible!
