Muppet Vision 3-D at Hollywood Studios
A trip to Disney Hollywood Studios, for me, is never complete without a visit to see the “Muppet Vision 3-D”. For all lovers of nostalgia, and for the younger visitors who watch The Muppets on television, this show is high on entertainment and effects.
Your entrance to the theatre firstly takes you past a succession of doors leading to a variety of laboratories, each labelled with typical Muppet humour, and then into the ubiquitous waiting area, which is designed to resemble the backstage area of a theatre. In addition to packing cases, and other theatre props, around the large room are a series of televisions, and this is where the fun begins. (TIP – if you arrive as a party is going into the main theatre; hang back and wait for the next show or you will miss the pre-show entertainment.) Whilst watching Scooter and the ‘stagehands’ attempting to raise the sponsor’s sign, on screen, you will soon notice that it’s not just a case of watching one of the overhead TVs - but instead you need to watch all three screens. As the scene unfolds, across the adjacent televisions, characters move smoothly from one screen to the next.
Following typical Muppet shenanigans the ‘orchestra’ arrive and your entry to the theatre is delayed only by the usual eating, drinking and photography warnings; but on this occasion delivered by Sam the American Eagle in his usual sombre tone!
Then into the main theatre where you are invited by Kermit to look round the Muppet studio whilst the production of their new show is underway. You visit the lab where Dr Bunsen Honeydew and his assistant ‘Beaker’ are developing a new 3-D production system, and Fozzy Bear will entertain you with his usual corny jokes and a 3-D flower – watch out!
As usual somebody falls foul of Miss Piggy whilst she is rehearsing her big song. On this occasion it is Bean the young bunny. Following his run in with Miss Piggy he decides to run away and this is where audience participation comes in as Sweetums enters the theatre and joins the hunt for Bean with the traditional cries from the kids of “he’s behind you”, so typical of English pantomimes.
Stadler and Waldorf are there to add their usual sarcastic humour to the proceedings and even the Swedish chef gets in on the act as he attempts to blow up the theatre with a cannon. Watch out for those special effects as he blows holes in the walls.
A fireworks finale brings this feast of 3-D entertainment finally to a close.
This 25-minute attraction plays continuously throughout the day. However, due to its popularity, plan to see it early.
