Muppet Mobile Lab returning to Epcot this week

Oct 03, 2016 in "Epcot"

It has been a big week for the Muppets at Walt Disney World, with the opening of 'The Muppets Present... Great Moments in American History' yesterday at the Magic Kingdom, and now the Muppets are heading to Epcot.

The much-traveled Muppet Mobile Labs are planned to return to Epcot this fall, with appearances expected to begin as soon as this week.

Part of Walt Disney Imagineering's Living Character initiative that began over 10 years ago, Muppet Mobile Lab is the successor to Lucky the Dinosaur. Featuring two audio animatronic characters, Doctor Bunsen Honeydew and Beaker, the show rolls around on a Segway-type platform, performing interactions with guests around the park.

Although the Muppet Mobile Lab has appeared at Epcot before in 2007, it has since travelled around the world, to Disney California Adventure, Hong Kong Disneyland, and at various Imagineering presentations and events.
