As promised, I’m posting on Muppet Vision 3D today. As soon as you step into the building, you leave Disney’s Hollywood Studios behind and enter Muppet Studios. There is a quick pre-show in an antechamber, during which Sam Eagle attempts to give safety instruction while Gonzo performs tricks, chickens invade, and general mayhem ensues.

You do have to stand for the pre-show, but the main show takes place in a lavishly decorated theater. The only way I can describe it is as a cross between the Academy of Music and a Muppet enthusiast’s house. There is a huge red curtain hanging in front of the screen and the walls are decorated with gilt Fozzie Bears and Gonzos.

The 3D show is entertaining to say the least, even if you haven’t seen the Muppet Show or the movies. Some scenes might give really little kids a bit of a fright. For example, at one point a vacuum cleaner sucks up Muppet Labs. There is another when the Swedish Chef attempts to hit another character with a cannon. There are also loud noises, but if your tike can handle it, you should definitely take them to the show. The humor is just awesome. In fact, I loved Muppet Vision so much that I rented the original TV shows from the library!
