post here and let us know your thoughts.

Here's a video of the show:
This show is an absolute triumph. It's funny, zany and endearingly charming. The puppeteering, even to a pre-recorded soundtrack, is also pitch-perfect.
Thankfully I'll be able to see it live in two weeks but I hope it's not short-lived. It would be nice for them to add a third variation, as it's just the two for the time being.
The first two shows are already online!
Declaration of Independence
Wow the show is super great! Hopefully they add more shows but those were pretty good. Hopefully I can see them both live!
Wow I really wanna see this in person. It would be a dream come true to be in the same place as Muppets.
BTW, I wonder who's doing the puppetry.
This was really well done. It wasn't what I was expecting, but was very enjoyable. I think this is a nice place for the Muppets in the park, and it will be interesting to see if they add more "shows" into this attraction as time progresses. One note I have is that the Fozzie puppet looks quite off at sometimes, but maybe that's just me. Great job by the Disney team!
Who ever was doing the puppetry had to have been trained cause it looks pretty good
Here is a great video that shows the amazing detail in the puppets! Such little things that you can't see from far away (such as the functionality of Gonzo's eyelids)
Both versions of the show are fantastic. It's wonderful to see the Muppets have something besides MuppetVision in the theme park.
I would assume the puppeteers are traditional Disney Park puppeteers. I know a couple of them, Art Vega and Alex Villa worked on the recent Muppet movies.
Are there only the two shows? I thought they'd have different ones for each time in the day, but whatever.
They're pretty good. The puppeteering is way better than I expected it to be. The schtick with Miss Piggy is a little tired, but I guess they could only do so much with the characters they had. And I learned a new pun I hadn't heard before ("Cough stirrup").
I'm glad these are in the park now; this is exactly the type of thing they should've been doing.
The Getting Felt Up podcast YT channel has a video where you can see Sam at every point he does something in the Declaration of Independence show:
That was awesome! I'm so jealous at WDW right now. Because I'm a Disneyland guy. Nonetheless, that was hilarious and cute. I hope this leads the Muppets getting a new tv show. Okay, maybe not, but sometimes you'll never know what happens.
Steve Swanson and JD Hansel have interesting stuff to say about this attraction. Listen from 23:48 to 31:40 and to hear Jarrod Fairclough's thoughts, listen from 57:42 to 59:24: http://muppethub.com/the-muppet-newsflash-podcast-3/
Negative or positive?
JD doesn't like the look of the puppets, but other than that, it's positive.
I'd try to listen, but I can barely tolerate JD Hansel.
I understand that he sorta overthinks things, like thinking Pixar tugs on audiences' heartstrings too much, but I think he generally makes good points and has good insight.
Yeah. He and Steve Swanson tend to do that and they also make too many stupid and annoying jokes.
