PHOTOS, VIDEO: The Highly-Acclaimed Muppets Mobile Lab Returns to Epcot

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

It’s hard to believe that it was only done as a short test over 9 years ago with how much people talk about loving the Muppets Mobile Lab that once appeared at Epcot. You would think it had appeared at the park for years based on the legacy it has developed amongst fans. Well, starting today, guests can see the “living character” show at Epcot daily through the next 4 weeks.

The show is critically acclaimed for its technology, including fully interactive characters who are a free-roaming audio-animatronics unit on wheels. The show also features that trademark Muppets humor that doesn’t miss even though the characters aren’t manned directly by human beings, much like The Muppets present Great Moments in American History over at the Magic Kingdom (which debuted yesterday).

Here is a video of one of today’s performances:

Now that is it back, I implore Walt Disney World to keep this offering. Please move this to Hollywood Studios and make this a regular offering. I have never met anyone who wasn’t wowed by the technology or who wasn’t amused by the humor of the program. Muppet Mobile Labs deserve a permanent home at the Disney Parks after this second testy run at Epcot.

  • When (during the day)? Where?!? I want to see this, but where’s the information I need to actually do so? Or do I just have to be in EPCOT and get lucky?

  • I’m really hoping this sticks around somewhere. I’ll be there in 5 weeks and I’d love to see this!

  • I probably won’t get to see it “live” unless it continues somewhere (DHS would be great) in December and beyond. For now, the kiddo and I will enjoy the videos. Beaker was her favorite. And how about making the Swedish Chef the F&WF mascot some time in the future. Figment’s alright but Swedish Chef would be awesome.
