Ever since the transformation of Hollywood Studios has been taking place, there has been a lack of attractions in this particular park.
Gone are the Streets of America, The Animation Studio, the Backlot Studio Tour and others.
Many of the attractions that were a part of the opening day festivities in May 1991, that gave the park it’s unique behind the scenes of Hollywood flair, are now long gone.
One attraction that has withstood the test of time is Muppet Vision 3D.
This full-sensory 3D video, located in what is now being called Muppet Courtyard, is a hit with audience members of all ages.
Falling inline with the premise behind the park, the story-line of the attraction has Kermit the Frog take the audience on a behind the scenes tour of the Muppet’s newest developments in 3D technology featuring Muppet favorites such as Fozzie Bear, Miss Piggy, Bean Bunny, Dr. Bunsen Honeydew and more. The audience is also introduced to the character of Waldo, a 3D fairy.
The attraction also makes use of auto-animatronics, full costumed characters and fun sensory experiences like bubbles and water squirting.
While some of the 3D films at Walt Disney World can be a little intense for some Mousekatots (I’m talking about you, “It’s Tough to be a Bug”), this one is tame and really a lot of fun. Not giving anything away, but at the end there is fun and spirited cannon battle. This could be a little intimidating to some of the more skittish toddlers, but it is played off more playfully than threatening.
One of my favorite parts of this attraction is the pre-show area. It is made to look like the Muppet studios and it is full of bad puns and sight gags. Always, remember to look up. You will miss a lot of the charm if you don’t look everywhere.
While there are Fastpass+ available for this attraction, it really isn’t necessary. With the park being devoid of a lot of attractions currently the park really isn’t that busy. Also, since the attraction has been around for many years, people don’t feel the need to see it every year. However, this could change with the opening of Rizzo’s Pizza at the former Pizza Planet location.
All-in-all this attraction is one that should be placed on your to-do list with your Mousekatot. Who doesn’t love the Muppets?
