BREAKING: The Muppets Are Coming to Liberty Square at the Magic Kingdom in New Attraction

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

It has been a day of strange story, but this one doesn’t even see to be a rumor as testing is set to begin shortly…

The Muppets are apparently coming to Liberty Square at the Magic Kingdom. The rather lengthy facade refurbishment of the Heritage House seems to have been for this new attraction which will have The Muppets teaching and interacting with guests concerning U.S. history. The Muppets characters, which were reportedly built in a collaboration between the Muppet Studios and Walt Disney Imagineering, will be appearing high above guests in the second story windows of Liberty Square.

We have no other info at this time, but as stated above, testing of the new attraction is imminent. Walt Disney World has not announced this attraction as of yet.

So the characters are in the windows, not a new show inside the building?

I suspect this is in preparation for the closing of Muppets 3D.

They’re not going to close Muppets 3d, they just renamed their section of the park Muppets Courtyard. Plus Rizzo’s Pizza is supposed to open at the end of the year.

I’m ONLY fishy about the part with the Jim Henson company bring involved! Henson has NOTHING to do with the Muppets since 2004 when Disney bought them! Henson doesn’t even build the puppets anymore for Disney, a puppet company callef Puppet Heap does!

Henson’s still involved; Disney didn’t buy the Muppets and run away with them cackling.

The Muppets are now completely owned by Disney. The Jim Henson Company is not involved. The Muppets Studio (owned by Disney) handles all Muppets stuff now.

Boring. The humor is stale. Muppets flopped on primetime because it was so bad that no one wanted to see it. The mature themed show forced parents to hide their kids from viewing the massive disaster. Muppets deserved to go away. It is no better than Avenue Q.

You know the first Muppet special was called Sex & Violence, right? That they were part of the cast of Saturday Night Live for a season. That every Muppet movie Henson worked on is loaded with adult themes and adult jokes.

And Avenue Q won like 3 Tony Awards, so you’d be putting them in good company.

I wish Disney would stop messing around with it’s “bought” properties. The only place Marvel, Star Wars, and Muppets belong is Hollywood Studios. Keep them out of the Magic Kingdom!!! That should be reserved for Disney created characters.

It doesn’t really make sense that they’d have Muppet attractions in two different parks…

They have Toy Story, Finding Nemo, and Lion King attractions/ shows in 2 parks, I see no problem with this.

But there are Toy Story, Little Mermaid, Beauty & The Beast, and Frozen attractions in two different parks. Why not Muppets?

Well that would explain the Disney website taking applications for puppet cast members I saw this past week.

That didn’t work out well for them last decade, read below:

There’s little reason, when it’s the same show or shows over and over, not interactive, to not use audio-animatronics.

It probably was just for Little Mermaid or something.

I’d much rather see the Muppets in Liberty Square than I would a Trump animatronic.

I really would love to know if Trump would allow them to make a figure, or if he’d try and charge millions in licensing fees. And if a completed figure would be pelted during shows.

Doubt he would be pelted more then Mrs. “What difference does it make?” Hillaliar Clinton.
