Muppet*Vision 3D Full Show at Disney’s Hollywood Studios

Enjoy the full show (the pre show and the actual show) of Jim Henson’s Muppet*Vision 3D at Disney’s Hollywood Studios! I’m so glad Muppet*Vision 3D is still around. There is so much to love about it if you like the Muppets as much as I do! For those of you who don’t know, this was one of the last projects Jim Henson worked on before his sudden passing on May 16th, 1990. I really hope that the show will be at the Studios for many more years to come!

Muppet*Vision 3D is a 3D film attraction located at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Directed by Jim Henson, the attraction consists of a pre-show which then leads into Kermit the Frog guiding park guests on a tour through Muppet Studios, while the Muppets prepare their sketch acts to demonstrate their new breakthrough in 3D film technology. The show, however, completely unravels when Dr. Bunsen Honeydew’s experimental 3D sprite, Waldo, causes mayhem during the next portion of the show.

The attraction—which opened as Jim Henson’s Muppet*Vision 3D on May 16, 1991 at Disney’s Hollywood Studios (then Disney-MGM Studios)-incorporates the 3D film in conjunction with in-theater 4D effects, such as Audio-Animatronics, lighting, projections, smoke, soap bubbles, and a live full-bodied performer.

Muppet*Vision 3D is the sole attraction of Grand Avenue in Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

The show was one of the final Muppets projects with the involvement of Henson, as well as veteran Muppet performer Richard Hunt, and was the last time they performed their characters.

The attraction was once sponsored by Kodak upon opening in 1991. However, in 2012, the company declined to renew sponsorship and by 2013, all references to Kodak were removed.

As for what has changed for the Muppets ride over the years, which is actually not that much.

A few years after Disney’s 2004 acquisition of The Muppets, Jim Henson’s name was removed from the building’s original sign.

David Gumpel, director of the original pre-show, reported on his blog that he directed a new version of the pre-show in November 2008 for the updated attraction. (Promising something new for the Muppets at D23 in 2008, but it never happened) Gumpel did not indicate when the new pre-show was expected to debut.

The only update since: From March 2014 to December 2016, the pre-show was edited to include Constantine, the villain from Muppets Most Wanted, to promote the new film. Likewise, in September-October 2021, the majority of the pre-show was replaced with a promo for the Disney+ special Muppets Haunted Mansion, hosted by Pepe the King Prawn.

A new pre-show and other queue area updates were also planned.

The attraction was closed at Walt Disney World from April 24 through May 14 for the update. The new pre-show was not included in the update.

In 2009, it was announced that Muppet*Vision 3D would receive an update at both the Florida and California parks. The film would be remastered and reissued in Disney Digital 3D.

In 2016 and 2017, other changes were made to the area. In February 2017, the yellow hot air balloon with Kermit the Frog’s face that was perched on top of the building was removed. Several months later, a new marquee replaced the old signage, renaming the building as the Grand Arts Theatre.

In Walt Disney World, the fire truck used in the film’s final sequence was situated around the corner from the attraction’s exit. It has since been removed to make way for the Stage One Company Store.
