Unpopular opinion: Muppets needed to be replaced yesterday.
So they replaced a fun mural with a boring, flat, nondescript color.
Great work, Disney. You really plussed this building!
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.
You’ve gotta agree though that the end is near, though.
Oh yea, I'm surprised it's still around.
Can they just sell the film to Uni as a replacement for Shrek? I'd be fine with that
Some of the insiders on Magic were saying last year that the Muppet presence at DHS was safe (for the foreseeable future, anyway).
I think the quality is fine but the ending is dated with the crowd peeking in. The Muppets deserves far more than we've got.
Eh, how many people really notice those people are dressed like it's 1989?
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.
My wife noticed on her first trip but it was more amusing than anything else.
The beginning of the end was the fountain downgrades, loss of balloon and the installation of an easy to update non-descript theater marquee.
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 know, I just like being dramatic.
Well as long as we're being dramatic, don't forget they completely renamed Muppet Courtyard as well.
And removed the giant ice cream sundaes on the pillars too!
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
