Walt Disney Imagineering confirmed a rumored attraction featuring The Muppets, which we reported on a few weeks ago. We now have an official name, and a tentative opening date, for “The Muppets Present: Great Moments in American History!” It is scheduled to make its debut in October 2016, in Liberty Square at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida. The show will include an original song among the Muppet zaniness we know and love.
According to the announcement via the Disney Parks Blog, the all new show will feature and include:
“Sam Eagle, the fiercely patriotic American eagle who is forever trying to set a high moral standard for the Muppets, will join Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear, The Great Gonzo and James Jefferson, town crier of Liberty Square, as they gather outside The Hall of Presidents to present historical tales in hysterical fashion as only they can. From the midnight ride of Paul Revere to the signing of the Declaration of Independence, the Muppets appear throughout the day to share with Guests, their own unique take on the founding fathers and the birth of the United States of America.”
I think we can all agree that more Muppets is definitely a good thing, and I for one cannot wait to book a trip to see this new show!
