Grand Avenue/Grand Park (Muppets) | Inside Universal Forums
  • As the Coronavirus pandemic continues to impact everywhere, we understand our users will have a lot of questions about how it affects the theme parks. We are entering unprecedented waters, and honestly, the answer is either "yea, probably", or "Too early to tell". We just don't know specifics until the theme parks give us an answer. At this time, we're asking to please leave the COVID talk to the appropriate COVID threads, and if something officially and specifically is impacted by a closure, then we can discuss it further in the respective threads. Thank you!

I’m pretty sure we’re looking at the beginning of the end of this attraction. Muppets is good, but the film quality hasn’t quite held up. I wouldn’t be against them gutting this for an actual Muppets ride, but I guess we all know that isn’t likely to happen.

I don't really agree about the film quality. When I saw it a few weeks ago I thought it looked great.

Sigh disney just doesn't care about the muppets. Grand Avenue should be a true muppet land with MV3d, a dark ride, restaurants, and shops. The Muppets are a perfect IP for a theme park if done right.

The beginning of the end was the fountain downgrades, loss of balloon and the installation of an easy to update non-descript theater marquee.

Some of the insiders on Magic were saying last year that the Muppet presence at DHS was safe (for the foreseeable future, anyway).
I agree it's probably safe for at least a few years, especially since it's right near Galaxy's Edge. They need the capacity. But once they get going on any projects for the park again, i'd be slightly worried. Sure, there are things in far more need of updating and/or complete demo/replacement, but I could see a quick Muppet replacement project happening.

The balloon had to go as it would've been seen from SWGE.

The fountain and Marquee I agree with though.

I really thought that when they rethemed Pizza Rizzo and the restroom that there was a possibility of a Muppets themed land. Little did I know it was more of Disney’s Tangled toilet hijinks
