It’s all about the rise! Everything appears to be on the “rise” at Hollywood Studios. The big question: is Muppet Vision 3D included in the movement to the top? We’ve heard through the grapevine that changes to Muppet Vision 3D are underway. What is being changed, and what does it mean for the Muppets at Walt Disney World? The curtain is rising, let’s head into the show, we’ve heard it’s a glorious 3-hour event!
Here Today, There Tomorrow!
The Muppets have been making moves! As Serena would say, money moves. At the end of 2019, the Muppets present Great Moments in America History had its last performance at the Magic Kingdom. Many believed, we included, this may be the curtain call for Muppet Vision 3D. Fast forward a few weeks and we find out Sam Eagle is migrating from the Magic Kingdom to be the new mascot of the Regal Eagle Smokehouse in Epcot’s American Pavilion. All rise for the Muppets!
Passholder Insights: While experiencing Muppet Vision 3D make sure to look all around the theater. You never know who may be behind you!
Every home at some point needs a facelift. The Muppet Vision theater is no different. On Monday, January 27, 2020, the attraction closed its doors and began work on the theater. Disney Parks has not officially released what updates they will be making during this refurbishment, but we have a rough idea of what we should expect.
Muppet Vision 3D is expected to be under refurbishment until February 9, 2020. During this time Disney is rumored to be addressing two major items, the curtains, and the seats. With the short downtime, there is a limited amount of items Disney could tackle and it’s more than likely to be cosmetic related changes over a major update like shifting the show to 4K.
Passholder Insights: On the other side of Grand Ave you’ll one of the best places to take a break and enjoy a pint and light bite. We’re talking about Baseline Tap House.
This is big news! A lot bigger news than it may appear on the surface. With Disney taking the time to make the attraction a better experience, it shows they see the show being part of the park for a bit. How long? Great question, we’re not sure at the moment. However, with the success of the Muppet Babies, there could be a resurgence of the Muppets. For now, it looks like the Muppets are on the rise!
