Since the announcement of “The Muppets Present… Great Moments in American History”, we have been asked many times when exactly the new show in Liberty Square at the Magic Kingdom would debut. Today, we have that information.

While not yet released to the public by Disney, internal documents state that the show will debut on October 2nd, 2016. Since it is not announced yet, this date can be delayed (similarly to Rivers of Light), but that is at least the targeted start date for The Muppets invasion of Liberty Square.

I don’t know about you, but there are times when planning a Disney vacation can be overwhelming! There are so many options, where to stay, when to go, is this the best price.

  • Sesame Muppets are own by Jim Henson productions. All money is split between Jim Henson produ tion and seame workshop who split owners of sea me street.

  • In 2000, Sesame Workshop bought the Muppet characters that had been appearing on their show from the Henson company.
    In 2004, Disney bought the Muppet Show, its characters, spinoffs, movies, and a few precursor specials (along with the word “Muppet”) from Henson (along with Bear in the Big Blue House). Sesame Street characters remain with the Children’s Television Workshop. Crossovers have occurred, but studio attorneys apparently decided against Elmo.
    Fraggle Rock and some other specials not starring either of the above-mentioned sets of characters (except in small roles) remain under the Jim Henson Company’s ownership.
