MuppetVision reopening report

May 15, 2010 in "Jim Henson's MuppetVision 3-D"

MuppetVision 3D opened this morning after it's refurbishment. Great news for MuppetVision fans, no changes to the preshow or main show. Most importantly, the new projection system looks fantastic. The colors are vivid and bright, and the picture quality is superb. The theatre has brand new seat fabric and what feels (and smells) like new carpet. The long missing smoke blast from the edge of the screen is also back in action. The overhead fireworks were not working, but this may well have been a technical issue as the attraction was late opening (9:45am). The sponsor remains Kodak, on both the building exterior and in the pre-show. The pre-show contain some new surrounds on the overhead monitors (see photos below), and it also looks as though the video is now digital (there are some small digital artifacts on the video). Overall it has been a great refurbishment, the show is just how it has always been, just that bit fresher and better. Great job Disney!
