Countdown to 2012 WDW Marathon Weekend #36

#36 - Disney's Hollywood Studios Muppet Vision 3-D

From the Walt Disney World website:
Muppet*Vision 3D is a hilarious 3D film experience featuring most of your favorite Muppets at Disney's Hollywood Studios theme park.

It's time to play the music! It's time to light the lights! It's time to meet the Muppets—in 3D tonight!

Step right up and proceed past a bevy of wooden crates and show props into the warehouse of the Muppet Theater, where some of your favorite Muppet characters—including Rizzo, Gonzo and Fozzie Bear—interact with you via television monitors during a fun-filled 12-minute pre-show extravaganza. Then, make your way into the 584-seat theater—designed to look just like the one from the classic television series—and receive your special 3D glasses for the main show.

As the lights fade and the 17-minute 3D movie begins, stare in amazement as you suddenly find yourself in the center of the action. Reach out and almost touch Kermit, Miss Piggy and the gang—seemingly right in front of you—as you take off on a wacky, behind-the-scenes tour of Muppet Labs. And meet Waldo C. Graphic, the world's first computer-generated Muppet, as he wreaks havoc on everybody in his path, including Sam the Eagle, during his patriotic grand finale.

Muppet*Vision 3D features Audio-Animatronics characters that literally bring the house down around you. Wave hello to the in-theater Muppets—including Statler & Waldorf and the Swedish Chef—and hum along to the various musical numbers and songs. And don't be surprised if you find yourself "blown away" by the show's wonder-filled ending!

Why am I looking forward to Muppet Vision 3-D?
I love the Muppets, I grew up watching the Muppets, quoting the Muppets and just thoroughly enjoying everything about them.  It's so great to have an attraction with our favorite Muppet characters!

This is one attraction where I will tell you that you really can't miss the pre-show.  If you have to wait for the next show, that's a good thing.  There are a ton of great Muppet laughs during the pre-show and it's truly an entertaining wait. 

Take some time to explore the waiting area as well.  There are a ton of fun props and quirky labels to look at and discover.  This stuff is sure to make you smile!

This is a 3-D movie so don't forget to pick up your glasses as you enter the pre-show area.  Before you know it, you'll be allowed in the theater.  There aren't really any bad seats in the theater, but if you manage it, try to get about half way back and as close to the center as you can - it does afford the very best views.

Statler and Waldorf are there to heckle the audience and movie and what would the show be without them? The orchestra is made up of penguins and take a little time to watch them as they are quite cute.

The length of the movie is pretty standard and there are a few good 3-D effects to enjoy.  There are also a couple of effects that are done in the theater that makes it fun for everyone.  Be sure to look up, and behind you at the end of the show.

Honestly, the one part of the movie I don't really love is Waldo C. Graphic - I find him a little annoying at times and not quite in the spirit of the Muppets.  I do understand why they put him in the show and I don't dislike him so much that it detracts from the attraction, but I would have loved to see more classic Muppets and less Waldo...That being said, don't let it discourage you from seeing this movie as it really is fun and entertaining and you will get to see some of your favorite Muppets. 

There are also quite a few quotable lines in this movie, see which ones you find yourself using regularly!

This is a must see for us every time. Even though I have seen the show many, many, times, it never fails to put a smile on my face.
