In honor of Pi(e) Day, Disney added a new PhotoPass Lens to the My Disney Experience app, and it puts you right in the center of MuppetVision 3D.
Disney announced the release of new Disney PhotoPass Lenses, featuring the Muppets for “Pie Day” as part of the popular celebrations based around the mathematical value 3.14, also known as pi. Guests who are visiting Disney’s Hollywood Studios today and have purchased the Genie+ service can access the new lenses through their My Disney Experience app. As we reported earlier this year, Annual Passholders will also have access to the special PhotoPass Lenses. There are three lenses in total, each with a different character and scene from attractions MuppetVision 3D. They include Waldo, Fozzie Bear, and Miss Piggy.
This is a peek at the celebratory Pie Day lens, where Fozzie appears, and then you can smash a pie in your face.
Here we can see Waldo C. Graphic, the special 3D character from the attraction. This lens features many small Waldos flying around your head.
The third option, as seen here, comes from the scene featuring Miss Piggy.
Check out the official Twitter post above to see the MuppetVision inspired PhotoPass Lenses in action.

MuppetVision 3D is an attraction at Disney’s Hollywood Studios where guests sit in an interactive theater while watching a 3D film starring the Muppets. The attraction, features the Muppets, including Kermit, Fozzie, Miss Piggy, Gonzo, and several other characters from the classic show.
In one scene, while Bunsen Honeydew and Beaker are working in their lab, they successfully bring a new character to life called Waldo. Bunsen calls him the “first living 3D effect”. Waldo then joyfully announces that he is the “spirit of 3D”. He then begins to play with the audience using various 3D effects that make the audience members feel as if he is only interacting with them.
Other memorable moments of this attraction include Fozzie getting a cream pie to the face and Miss Piggy performing the song “Dream a Little Dream of Me,” where Bean Bunny seems to ruin the show. The new PhotoPass lenses feature elements from the scenes mentioned above. For a complete history of MuppetVision 3D, check out our Timekeeping series.
