Muppet*vision 3-D, more appropriately, 4-D, can only be seen at the Disney's Hollywood Studios in Walt Disney World, Orlando, FL and also at California Adventure at the Disneyland Resort, Anaheim, CA. This "4-D" film begins with an entertaining 15 minute pre-show in the waiting area. The movie is shown in a huge theater on screen that is twice the size of a typical movie theater. 3-D glasses are required to see the film correctly. Antics abound in this hilarious show that is true to the classic Muppet Show. Kermit narrates while we visit the Muppet Lab which, of course, has its difficulties. This is where we meet Dr. Bunsen Honeydew's newest discovery, Waldo - the spirit of 3-D, who causes some trouble. Next, Miss Piggy sings a song where Bean Bunny tries to improve the show. Bean Bunny's good intentions do not satisfy Miss Piggy, and disheartened, he runs away with Waldo and the search is on in the theater. Finally, Sam Eagle is in charge of the grand finale, "A Salute to All Nations... Written by

Hey, Waldorf, what is this anyway?
Oh, it's one of those 3-D movies. Better put on your glasses.

Hey, check out the guy in the Goofy mask.
That's no mask.
Ooops. Sorry, lady!

This 1990 Disney-MGM Studios attraction combines everyone's favorite puppets with the magic of 3-dimensional design to create a completely creative and fun show!
Welcome to the Muppet Lab, where anything can (and does!) happen. Here, Kermit and gang want to show you everything crazy that happens here, and the perk is--you feel like you're really there!
As you enter the building, the attendants hand over "safety goggles" (3D glasses) to wear during the show. They pack visitors into a large warehouse room, with props everywhere. The monitors have a terrific pre-show playing that gets the audience prepped. Momentarily, the doors open, and everyone files into the large auditorium, where the audience is exposed to a private tour of Muppet Labs, guided by Kermit the Frog, of course, with a fabulous show planned for the visitors. I saw this attraction for the fourth time on my fourth visit to Walt Disney World in March 2002, and I still love it! Kermit the Frog is my favorite character of all the Muppets, and he is TOO MUCH FUN!!! The jokes never grow old, and the sense of the action is what keeps this attraction fresh! I particularly love how Beaker causes some sort of catastrophe, and how Miss Piggy has contempt for Rizzo the Rat, who she flings across the stage!!!! The two critics Waldorf and Staler, as always, critique the Muppets, and this time they are perched in the balcony in all their animatronic glory. I also thought it was funny when that big freaky Muppet, Sweetums, comes into the crowd with a flashlight looking for Waldo Graphic, asking if he' there. Everyone begins yelling, so I screamed "He's back here!" Miss Piggy's song, "Dream a Little Dream of Me" was so good, especially when the bubbles came down from the ceiling. My best friend and I were laughing constantly on the recent visit, especially when Miss Piggy threw Rizzo into the pond, and at Fozzie's pie through. I cracked up at Gonzo, but then again, I always have. Sam Eagle's "Salute to All Countries, but Mostly America" was good, and you know something horrible is gonna happen, but I won't say exactly what.
Despite the age of this attraction, it is too much fun, and holds up well. I highly recommend this attraction to everyone, especially Muppet fans. Definitely hit the Muppet Studio Store afterwards, since they have AWESOME Muppet merchandise. Also, get your picture taken with the giant Kermit statues and get shots of the signs and fountains. This is the most fun you'll have with 3D.
Walka-walka! [Pie in your face]!!!
