Guests visiting Disney’s Hollywood Studios today are in for a sad surprise: the entire left side of the MuppetVision 3-D building has been painted over.
This wall has been home to mural of Miss Piggy and Kermit since the attraction opened in 1991. The mural has been painted over now, matching the remainder of the building that has been turned another color to “better fit” Grand Avenue or to hide it from visibility while inside of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. Not that this side faces that way, but it’s gone either way. Here’s what the mural looked like:
Gone are most of the bright colors that brought this area to life. Grand Avenue seems more and more like a project to disinterest people in this attraction rather than to draw more in.
Here’s a wider look at what it looked like before thanks to a photo we took back in December:
The more I see of the Grand Avenue project, the less I understand it.
This purple stairwell remains, along with the gutter-face, but for how much longer?
The adjacent Stage 1 Company Store remains untouched, but I can’t imagine this will be allowed to stay next door if they want a more muted street.
We’ll of course keep you up to date on this project as it continues at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
