73 Days: MuppetVision 3D

Muppet*Vision 3D

MuppetVision 3D – our choice for #Day73 in our #DisneyWorldCountdown!

Hello everyone, and thank you for stopping by today as we explore our next selection in our #DisneyWorldCountdown!  For this day, we are looking at #Day73, and today’s choice is none other than the incomparable MuppetVision 3D!

This attraction first opened on May 16, 1991, over in the Streets of America section of Disney’s Hollywood Studios park.  I remember seeing it at some point not that long after, and thinking it was so much fun because it was my pals The Muppets!  To this day, I still like to watch the corny show, even though it is quite dated now.  Part of me wonders what sort of changes, if any, we would have seen to the attraction had Jim Henson not passed away when he did.  That tragic loss impacted fans of the Muppets for years, and still does to some degree today.

I think, though, that MuppetVision 3D is great just as it is, with the pre show, the 3D Glasses that are sometimes 3D Safety Glasses, Statler and Waldorf, and of course, Kermit.  But what I like perhaps best of all is how the whole area around the attraction just screams Muppets, everything from the giant billboard of Miss Piggy:

Miss Piggy IS the Largest Star!

and the director Fozzie Bear (not sure how well that will work!):

Fozzie Bear is running camera and, I believe, directing too!

That’s just a couple of examples.  So tell me, please: do you like MuppetVision 3D?  If so, what is your favorite part, and if not, tell me why please.  In the meantime, thank you for stopping by today, now go out and make it a great Disney Day!

66 Days til Disneyland – Muppet*Vision 3D!

Hello everyone!  It is only 66 Days til our Disneyland trip!  The numbers are getting smaller and smaller each day!  Today we are looking at Muppet*Vision 3D at Disney’s California Adventure Park, located in Hollywood Land!

As you can see from the sign picture, the image at the entrance to the attraction is vastly different from the one at Disney’s Hollywood Studios park!  Take a look at the one at DHS for comparison:

To be honest, I think I like the look of the sign at California Adventure better.  Which do you like better?

Other then that sign difference, really it doesn’t look like there is anything all that different about the pre-show and the actual show, but does that matter to me?  Not one bit!  It’s still The Muppets, and I love The Muppets!

Quick straw poll — what is your favorite Muppet?  Tell me in the comments or on our Facebook Page, and thanks!
