Terrible Rumor: Muppet*Vision 3D to close in DisneyLand California

    I feared this.

    I'm really worried about this. But I'm really not surprised that this is a thought. They don't even use the theater for Muppets all day. Whenever they have a new movie to promote, they use the theater as a place to show the 3D trailers.

    I'd be really sad if this is really true. I would hate for them to take it away before I even have a chance to see it once. :(

    Disney, tell us this isn't true!

    "Disney is considering expanding their Pixar presence in the Disney California Adventure park". Becuase, you know, they haven't made ANY recent Pixar renovations lately ...

    I'd be saddened if the one in Disney's California Adventure closed, but we always still have the one in Disney World (at Disney's Hollywood Studios) if anything. (Actually, the one in Disney World is a bit older than the one in Disneyland).

    Yeah. The one in WDW was opened in 1991, so all the Muppeteers were very involved in the creation and the layout (as well as other stuff) of MV3D. Jim had a lot to say in the plans of everything too. It was planned shortly before his death. :(
    The one in Disneyland opened in 2001. Although the actual theater and the film (and pre-show) is the same as in WDW, the layout is extremely different. Those decisions all came from the Imagineers.

    I'm pretty sure Jerry Nelson wasn't involved, though he did record voices for Here Comes the Muppets and performed in The Muppets at Walt Disney World. Then again, I think I read that Muppet*Vision 3D was actually filmed at Disneyland (or at least in California) even though it was only shown at Walt Disney World for so many years.

    Hopefully this is a rumor, especially considering the success of the previous film and the upcoming film. It's bad enough Disney isn't releasing more old productions (and the number of new stuff has been a bit small as well).

    i know they have TMA coming literly next year. i would think they would want more muppet presence in the park and maybe a new ride.

    What's TMA again? "The Muppet Adventure?" While it would be a shame if they closed MV3D in Disneyland, as people mentioned we still have the one in Disneywolrd. Not to get off track, but I remember how sad I was when Universal closed down the Back To the Future ride. I'm a huge fan of the film, and loved the ride. Still, the "futuristic" part takes place in 2015:) , so it's a little dated to say the least.

    You see... I don't understand why they don't want to put the money to expanding the park itself, and keeping some of the older attractions. It would be expensive, but it's not like going to Disneyworldland Adventure costs 4 bucks per person. Disney has a Muppet Movie to promote, keeping that attraction up will help the movie's marketing, and the movie will make the ride more successful as a result.

    I don't mind the idea of a Pixar area, since Pixar's their main money maker, but how much more do they really need? Toy Story, Nemo, Cars, and Monsters Inc are their franchise films. Those are the only ones that really make the kiddy dollars they want. other than costumed walk abouts of the other films, I don't see what they think they need to ad.

    It makes no sense to close an attraction that they just made a comeback with, and are still buiding up with, with even more movies coming in the future.

    Y'know that Monsters Inc ride that the rumor states will be there? My family has always been saying how a ride like that would be good in Disney Parks. Great! Now a rumor shows that it will be coming, but in the spot of my favorite attraction!

    If this sadly ends up being true, I'm trying as hard as I can to make a trip out to L.A. to see it before it goes. I'll be really sad if this is true.

    I should point out that even though I've never been to Disney's California Adventure, I do know that this ride is right next to Muppet*Vision 3D there.

    Is it safe to start calling them "Prixar" yet? :laugh:

    Personally, I'm waiting for an entire land based on the Luxo Jr. shorts.

    Hey! Let's all hate on them now. They're popular and therefore it makes our complaints valid.

    Seriously... I can't believe Pixar gets so much hate from two movies when Sony Animation exists. I do respect them for hiring Genddy Tartikofsky, though. Too bad they don't let him and his old Dexter's Lab and Samurai Jack friends write them.

    Still... Cars 2. Really? They've made Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2, or as I like to call it, Toriko for morons. And Hotel Transylvania was their magnum opus! I'm deathly afraid of what they're going to do with Popeye.
