Opening Date Set for Magic Kingdom’s “The Muppets Present… Great Moments in American History”

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.

From earlier reports, the characters are going to be Sam the Eagle, Kermit, Miss Piggy, Fozzy Bear, Gonzo and some kind of colonial town cryer guy.

Elmo is owned by the Sesame Street company and not Disney. He will not be in the show.

I’m with you on that, Dorothy – also tired of immature comments like “shut up” and other rude things we see on the internet everywhere, trying to come off as snarky. Snarky = rude to some people.

I meant people on the internet in general, not you personally. But it isn’t nice to call people stupid.

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.
