Despite probably not being able to see it until we raise some significant money for an Orlando trip, we’re pretty excited about the upcoming Muppet attraction at Walt Disney World. And look up there! We have our first official artwork, featuring none other than Sam the Eagle, flanked by some Muppets cosplaying as historical figures.
We also have an official description, as provided by the Disney Parks website:
Great news for all you Muppets fans out there! Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear and The Great Gonzo arrive at Magic Kingdom Park on October 2 for the opening of their all-new, live show “The Muppets Present… Great Moments in American History.” Hosted by James “J.J.” Jefferson, town crier of Liberty Square, and Sam Eagle, the fiercely patriotic American eagle who is forever trying to set a high moral standard for the Muppets, this wacky new show is set to take place several times daily, just outside The Hall of Presidents.
Throughout the day, J.J. and the Muppets share their own unique take on the founding fathers as they recount the tale of the signing of the Declaration of Independence, complete with an original song and plenty of humor. At other times, you may catch the Muppets’ version of the midnight ride of Paul Revere, presented in hysterical fashion as only they can.
If you like some hijinks with your history, be sure to check out “The Muppets Present… Great Moments in American History” this fall at Walt Disney World Resort!
So it sounds like we’ll be getting multiple shows, keeping people coming back to Liberty Square over and over again. Or, as I would do, just camp out for the day. That’s a great use of one’s time while in the happiest place on earth.
Hopefully we’ll get some more photos and (dare I dream?) video soon!
