I love the Muppets, so this is always a fun show for me to see! Even if you don't like the Muppets this show will make you laugh! Although it's age is beginning to show, this is one of the Studio's best attractions. Be sure to check out all the cool stuff in the pre-show!
"Disney Magic Closed for Repairs"

I have always enjoyed the "4D" attractions at Disney, but it seems as though Disney's maintenance program involves making sure the film is running in the projector. When we saw this today, the water spraying gag was completely gone, the bubble machine appeared to be working only for the left side of the theater, and the entire show seemed rather effectless beyond what was on the screen. This most recent trip to Disney has shown a disappointing lack of attention to detail that used to be the hallmark of Disney World. It's better than it being closed, but still.
"Love it! Needs an overhaul, though."

I've always loved this attraction yet it is outdated and should be updated and revamped, much like Star Tours. Remember, this was the same film from over twenty years ago!

-Ladies and gentlemen, we have an unexpected suprise. I, have the great honor in introducing, the one, the only, Mr. Mickey Mouse!
-Dah, dah, dah, dah, dah, dada! Hello! Hi there! Welcome to my park! How you doin'? Hello!
-Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa! You're not Mickey Mouse, you are a rat!
-Rat, shmat! Besides, they're tourists, what do they know?

This show is probably the funniest at Walt Disney World and is a must do during every visit!!!

Like most shows in DHS, this one is a bit dated. It's still fun for just about anyone, but could use some attention. The upcoming movie would be the perfect opportunity to do so as the Muppets would establish themselves with a younger generation of park/movie-goers.

I hope with the new movie coming out soon that this attraction gets more attention. Unlike 20 years ago Disney now owns the Muppets so hopefully there is a big push and an updated show, like they are doing with Star Tours.

I hope this show never leaves because there is not a whole lot up
muppets out there. I think it needs better 3-D and some updating.

I LOVE the Muppets, and I love this show. Unfortunately, as other reviewers have noted, it seems to be getting a little worse for wear. I really hope that it gets some TLC/spiffed up for the coming years, but it's still a great, entertaining, and hilarious show! Well worth seeing!

The reason the rating on this is so low is because many of the reviews are from before there were WDWMagic ratings and thus they are given automatic zeroes.

Hilarious, juvenile, and playful. It will put a smile on your face.

I consider the Muppets to be the best show in Disney and the #2 attraction overall. The array of special effects are dazzling, the preshow is the most creative and the funniest at any theme park, and it's all light-hearted fun. The 3D technology is beginning to show its age, but the experience is so immersive you'll forget that quickly.

Hi folks ... I am all for keeping the old standards. I love the theming and I love the muppets. The 3D is okay, but the screen flickers noticably ... there are lines in the film (at times).

The waiting area is cool --- and the idea of a pre-show was great for that time --- but it's not quite as clever or cutting edge of a pre-show like Monsters Inc Laugh Floor. The water didn't even squirt (as expected) ... and the lighting effects for the fireworks etc seem a little dated.

I love the Muppets ... and would love to see a new MuppetVision presentation --- and no need to add a gimicky computer generated non-muppet who doesn't exactly fit.

I love the guys in the seats and the animatronic Muppet --- I say ... more Swedish Chef ... or at very least ... add a few more effects.

Muppetvision is hilarious from the preshow to the actual theater. THe effects are realistic but sort of old. The storyline is great. The whole thing is a blast. A must see! One of the best 3D show at WDW.
"Seats are TOO SMALL"

I love the muppets. I was so excited as I went into this great theater and then, I got to the seats.

What is up with Disney putting in all these really small seats? Why not just put in long benches like in the Country Bears or Hall of Presidents? You still get the same number of people, maybe even more, instead of these little seats that are so uncomfortable that your more focused on how bad your hips are hurting than the show.

Again, another great show that I won't be going back to because the seats are too small for people that are heavy or have any size to them.

Ok, now this really is a good 3D show. Make no mistakes, you will have a ball and kids will bein heaven, but it's no Tough to be a Bug.

One lovely moment...Miss Piggy singing and falling bubbles! One Two Three...ahhhhhhhhhh!

Not a great storyline, and I disliked that the camera wasn't stationary. In other words, it didn't look as if the screen were an actual stage like in Honey I Shrunk the Audience and It's Tough To Be A Bug. Nevertheless, I enjoy anything w/ the Muppets, and I try to see this out in Anaheim as much as I can.
SPOILER AHEAD!! -- Favorite line in any attraction;
Waldorf "Hey look at the guy w/ the Goofy mask!"
Stadler "Uh, that's not a mask."
Waldorf "Oh, sorry lady!"

I just saw this show after I don't know how many years and I forgot how cute it was. The pre-show kept us laughing and the show was also a lot of fun. The only problem I see with it is that it definitely needs some updating or tuning up. Anyhoo, definitely a good show for the entire family.

Hey, all I can say is MuppetVision 3-D is and hopefully always will be my favorite 3-D show in all of WDW. A sad little sidenote: This was one of Jim Henson's last pieces of work with the Muppets. He is missed and will be greatly remembered

This is one of the best attractions at MGM-Studios! Alright already----please buy the Muppets! This has one of the best pre-show/que areas in all of WDW! You should skip the first available show to look all around the adorable pre-show/que area! The theming, story, and 3D effects are awesome. A must do every visit. I love the Pittsburgh joke!

This is one of my all-time favorite attractions at the Disney-MGM Studios. The queue area is always entertaining, from the props to the constant TV Preshow. The 3-D presentation is purely entertaining; an orchestra of penguins, the heckling Muppets in the balcony, the mix of AAs and complex SFX, and even the blowing up of the theater. A quality attraction!

This is a great attraction, but with the additions of "It's Tough to be a Bug" and "Honey" the effects already seem outdated. This by far is the most kid friendly. You will definatley leave having a smile on your face, but I believe the other two 3-d shows are better.

This is *the* best 3D show on Disney property, and with Honey, I Shrunk the Audience and Tough to be a Bug as competition, that's really saying something. Even non-Muppet-fans will enjoy this, but true Muppet lovers will find themselves in a vast heaven of Muppety silliness. If you have the time, stop and read *everything*. There are fun posters all down and back up the long queuing area on the side, fun doors to read as you go into the preshow area, and tons of crates to read and fun props to look at in the preshow area. Keep going back...you'll keep finding new things. There are lots of little unexpected Muppet touches all over the building, too. This has IMHO the best and most intricately designed preshow and queue areas in all of WDW. And for a hardcore Muppet Show fan, nothing compares to when you step into that theatre for the very first time.

Even with It's Tough to Be A Bug, in my humble opinion, the Muppet's are still kings of the 3D movies. With tons of jokes and memorable characters, these guys put on a great show. The pre-show may be the best part of the whole experience. Try to get there right when the pre-show starts and you'll be entertained and won't even realize you'll still in line for the true attraction. The only thing this ride needs is a possible update. And with the anniversary of the Muppet Show coming up, it would be a great time. Plus, it would great having Pepe in the act.

This is the oldest and best 3-D movie still playing at Walt Disney World. The effects are spectacular combining not only a wonderful film but plenty of in theater effects, live performers, audio-animatronic characters, and all the zaniness you would expect from the Muppets. The pershow is one of Walt Disney World's best making your wait almost as fun as the actual attratcion.

The combination of Jim Henson's Muppets and Walt Disney World's Disney-MGM Studios makes for one of the best attractions in WDW and one of the best 3-D attractions around. Using various techniques including animatronics, live characters, and 3-D characters the show is a tremendous amount of fun. Don't forget to check out old geezers Statler and Waldorf in the balcony as they insult the program and turn around to see the Swedish Chef as he gets involved in the zany mishaps. Truly a great show.

Simply put, this is THE funniest attraction in all of WDW. Kermit and the gang provide a humorous pre-show (watch for Rizzo the Rat) and a side-splitting in theater show. Statler and Waldorf join you in the theater (in their classic balcony seats) and add witty commentary along the way.
