When Will Muppet*Vision Be Removed

    Instead of Disney expanding Star Wars, how about a new Muppet ride? Disney only has one Muppet attraction and the Muppets are growing in populaty, so why not have a new Muppet ride?

    I don't see why they can't do both. There's got to be something antiquated enough that doesn't have a bunch of fans that wouldn't be too upset if it was gone. Honey I Shrunk the Kids, probably as cool as it is, is a far from relevant movie.

    I keep thinking of that Freakazoid episode where they keep telling Freakazoid that they closed down the boat ride at Disneyworld, and he keeps crying over it.

    sad to think Disney was meant to have more muppety things like the great muppet movie ride or the gonzo pizza parlour that was planned before Jim passed away hopefully something in the future

    Since the topic here is about Muppet-Vision 3D (which will NOT be removed!) I thought I'd update you with what's going on with that building these days.

    They've been having really cool events going on in there. Every night, there is a special screening of 'Muppet Christmas Carol' for the 'Annual Passport' holders, as a part of their 'Muppet Christmas in July'.
    I've seen the movie a million times, but how cool would it be to see it up on the big screen in a Muppet theater?

    If anyone here is an annual passholder in the LA area, make sure you head down there before August!

    According to Disboards the Muppet Vision experience HAS now closed at Hollywood studios Florida BUT it's only closed for about 6 weeks for a re-furb :)

    Hmm..After searching, it turns out MV3D is going for refurbishment in WDW. Not closing permanently, of course.

    And I wouldn't believe any of the news for California for a while. If it were true, we would've heard it from more reliable sources.

    Muppet 3d in Disneyland will be closing in early 2014. This was confirmed to me by six different employee's this past weekend. (Sept 7th, 2013)

    Just the regular paint job. They might have fixed a couple of speakers or so. Not much. No major changes.

    We'll just have to wait and see. There's always a possibility that the info they shared came from unreliable unofficial sources like MiceChat.

    They'll probably spruce it up so people can flock to it when MWW comes out.

    What's MWW? I've honestly never heard of it

    I think he meant MMW, which stands for Muppets Most Wanted which comes out in March.

    I was at Disneyland during Labor Day weekend. The cast member at the entrance of the Monsters Inc ride saw my Muppets shirt and stopped me as I was walking in. He claimed that Muppet Vision 3D is closing. He said that they are knocking down the building to build a Monsters Inc roller coaster based around the bedroom door theme. The cast member said that they had supposedly posted the plans for the roller coaster backstage for the cast members... Whether it is true or he is just spreading rumors, I don't know... :boo:

    I hope it's not true. With a new Muppet movie on the way, this is not the time (from a commercial point of view) to stop MV3D! Now, from any other point of view, it's never a good time to stop it, of course. And that MV3D has Jim and the crew in it is more than enough of a reason that it should be left for years to come...

    Muppet*Vision is always a popular attraction when I go to the parks... Heck, it received some minor attention when the last Muppets movie was released... new posters and such in the lobby! I wouldn't be surprised if the poster for Most Wanted is now where the large The Muppets poster was when I was there last. :fanatic:

    I think Muppet Vision is very important to the history of the Muppets. It was the very last thing Jim worked on before his death, and I think that is something special about it still being in the parks. I think it would be a sad day for the Muppets if they ever took down Muppet Vision and not replace it with something else.
