Muppets 3D -- Do you go?

This is one of those great shows that keeps getting knocked off of our to-do list every trip. We just don't have time, but we really do like it.

You guys need to remind me to go when we're down in WDW!

We do..but it's a favorite of ours! We usually try not to miss it. The only time we've skipped it was during SWW and the line was wrapped around the building. Like so many Disney shows I really love the pre-show as well.

We're like you SpaceAce, I think it's one of the best attractions in WDW, but we still miss it more trips than not. sad

We try to catch it every trip. It's one of my favorite shows.

I wish there was more muppets stuff in WDW. I think they're pretty beloved. It could easily be a star wars-like fan base.

I love Star Wars, but I have a much higher bond with Muppets. I think it goes:

Winnie The Pooh
Other Disney Characters
Muppets
Star Wars

It's awesome that they're all in WDW. I do have fond memories of Rocky and Bullwinkle too though. I wish they'd defect over to Disney too. laugh

I am not a real big Muppets fan but we do usually do it every trip.

I wish the rumors of the Build-a-Muppet (like Build-a-Bear) store replacing The Muppets store in MGM were true..that would be awesome! I'd love to build a Gonzo.

That would be AWESOME. I have a particular fondness for the critics Warldorf and Statler.

This is probably one of the most favourites of my DH, we went during EMH after Fantasmic and there were maybe 50 people for the show. It was amazing.

It's always awesome to get a new feel for an attraction by doing it when there are fewer people there. Of if it's an outdoor ride at night.

We have had bad luck with the DHS EMHs, was the park empty in general or was just no one checking out Muppets 3D?

so completely empty, we walked from Fantasmic to Muppets before we saw anyone else, I kept thinking that we screwed up the dates.

Maybe everyone leaves after Fantasmic. I can't remember if we've tried that. I like DHS at night, but we've had no luck at all with evenings nor evening EMHs. I think we usually avoid Fantasmic nights, but maybe that's exactly the wrong idea.

We totally lucked out and I would definitely suggest it. We were there last year first 2 weeks of October

DHS at night is so great! I love going at night but I hate EMH's at DHS..there are too many people and not enough rides!

I love this show! I'd say definitely try and go on your next visit. My favourite 3D show at Disney has to be Philharmagic though.

I have a hard time choosing!

Very cool series on Muppets 3D over on StudiosCentral.com recently, though:
