Yay for an update!

I love the Muppets area of DHS, but I've never been able to love the show as much as Philharmagic. The Muppets fountain is one of Disney's best though!

Such cute photos in front of Sci Fi!

Loved your update. I think the Muppets are so fun and I love everything about that attraction - the queue and the actual 3D movie.

Love the youtube link you posted to the Moooooopets! Love that song!

Awww, I love the Muppets! And Muppet Babies! I used to watch that all the time!

Haha, I love the randomness of this update, it's all over the place, but in a good way!

I'm not a big fan of the Voyage of the Little Mermaid either, I mean, I liked it, but I've never felt the need to see it more than once. It just seems like they could have done a lot more with it, you know? I cannot WAIT for the Little Mermaid ride in MK!

I enjoyed the picture trip through Hollywood to start my Monday morning.
It's fun that interest in The Muppets has come back since the movie came out.

Next Monday morning, I'll be in Animal Kingdom.

But it will be for real!

Oh my gosh, I seriously thought that I was the only person on the planet who doesn't the Voyage of the Little Mermaid.

I mean....first off, the only time I went to see it was when it had just rained on a freezing January trip (literally freezing....it snowed!). And then you go in to what you think is a nice warm theater, and we literally got soaked. I didn't sign up to actually go under the sea!

Then after the first song or two, which were decent.....they sum up the whole last two thirds of the movie in a quick couple minutes of video montage. We were just sitting there going, "uh....what just happened? What happened to the PLOT?"

It's become this huge joke between me and my sister and uncle (the other two who were with me)....but then I see on DIS how everyone seems to love it. And I just don't get it.

Also....Waldo bothered me immensely, and Once Upon a Time is one of my new favorite shows.

Basically, if we hung out in real life, I think you and I would be best friends.

I obsess over The Little Mermaid too! However I saw VotLM yesterday and the girl playing Ariel was terrible! All of her timing on the song was way off. Nobody can top Jodi Benson!

Little bit late but I'm joining! . I'm the same when I'm in disney. Love being able to re-live my childhood, being able to forget about all the stresses of work ect.
I get major Disney blues when I get home and they pop up at random (typically when I'm having a hard day at work). I love reading trip reports to feel the Disney magic even when I'm not there. Can't wait to read more

Wow, I missed a lot while I was on vacation, but I'm all caught up!! Your pictures are so fantastic!! Love them all!

Fortunately/unfortunately, when we met Buzz and Woody, we were very near the front of the line, as we waited prior to the 9:15 opening, after riding TSM. The CM was not the most understanding/patient/kind CM and hurried everyone the the que line, not allowing any pictures at the photo stops. We snuck one or two, but very disappointing.

Looking forward to more of your pixie dust!!

Or, "And now, the 3 D's! I'm Dorothy! I'm Dinah! ...and I'm Max. Yeah, Debbie was sick, so the union sent me."

I'll stop for now, but I really could do this all day.

Yeah, I do think Waldo gets too much of the spotlight in the film, but he is cute. Personally, I'd always take more Rizzo or Pepe though! ("What's with the giant egg?" "Shh, it could be filled with chocolate, okay?")

Awww, Muppet Baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaabies! I used to watch that ALL the time! And yes, baby Rowlf is definitely the adorablest!

AHHHH! I love Muppets Take Manhattan! I found it on DVD for $5 at a grocery store a few years ago and it was basically the best day ever!

Muppet Vision is definitely a must do for me! I get what you mean about Waldo, though. But then I read that Muppet Vision was the last project that Jim Henson worked on before he passed away, and all was forgiven.

I think we share the same brain. I'm also not a VotLM fan! My big complaint is that the film quality is so poor. I mean, they've digitally remastered almost every Disney movie now, you'd think they could update the film in their own attractions.

(and WOAH! I've never been first to post after a TR update! I feel so cool. )
Oh okay! I arrived on the 14th last year. Haha. I totally understand short trips, don't even worry about it! I hope you'll be able to go too!

That's so awesome! That one and the original Muppet Movie are my favorites.

YES, exactly. That's another reason why I grew to love it so much. It's so sad to think about that though!

It really is. I agree with that completely. Plus, it's such a choppy story, and correct me if I'm wrong, but King Triton never even shows up as far as I remember! I was just very disappointed with that show.

Hahah congratulations!

It does indeed! I honestly think that this was the best time I'd ever had at that park!

Aww thanks! Aren't you sweet. Hahah I don't even know if you should bother with it! You don't get nearly the entire story. It's such a bummer.

I totally agree with you on the space used for Lights, Motors, Action... even though I am such a huge fan of Hollywood Studios in general and as a whole, I wish they would work as hard on some other things as they do with like Toy Story Mania and Tower of Terror... the potential is ENDLESS!!

I can't believe you saw a real live DEER. Jess and Kristen would fall over.

The cupcakes at Contempo look AMAZING. I have had them all on my list of things I must try for a long time. I don't know how I'm going to eat all these cupcakes I need to eat in 8 days, but I am going to make a valiant effort!

hahahaha ME TOO. I feel like I'm always trying to think of a new way to write about how excited I was, maybe a way to rephrase things, but it always just goes back to me being like yeah, I WAS SO EXCITED.
Yay! Hahah I'm glad! It's insanely soon! I'm so jealous!!!

Exactly! That's my problem with it, really. There IS so much potential that it's not living up to and it makes me sad because it could be so much more amazing than it already is! That park could easily be my favorite if a few things were different!

I was way too excited about seeing Bambi. I mean, there are deer in my backyard A LOT, but seeing one at Disney was so much more exciting.

You can do it! I'm rooting for you. CUPCAKES! I promise, the Contempo cupcakes are just Heavenly!

I know! There is basically no better way to convey excitement than saying you were excited! I'm always looking for other ways to say it too, but then I'm like... whatever. Everyone understands.

Thank you! Yes, that show was the best thing ever. I used to watch it all the time because we weren't allowed to watch very many cartoons!

Oh goodness, you must! It's great, once you get past stupid Waldo. (I really don't like him.) Wait, 12 days? Are you serious? AHHH that's so exciting! I honestly think everyone I know is going to Disney in the next month or so. I'm very jealous!!!

2. I do not know why there is a dinosaur in the lagoon... it seems odd to me as well.... now- considering I've never really thought about it before.

Question- Did you check for the key under the mat at Muppet Vision? I knew about it the last time we went, but did not look because the line was moving too quickly.
YAY. Muppet Babies was way too awesome. Hahha I always wondered that too! You're too funny. I really have no idea.

I think it's weird, but awesome. I love Gertie. I just don't understand her presence. Haha!

No I didn't ! I didn't even think about it because I was jamming to the area loop music. (Seriously.) I'm sure I wouldn't have had a chance to do it if I had thought about it because we went straight through to the pre-show area and there were a lot of people coming in. BUT, I'm glad you reminded me because I definitely want to look for it next time!

I miss Muppet Babies too. Used to be part of my daily viewing routine. Along with Gummy Bears......oh, and Wuzzles......

I was just thinking about the fact that OUAT premieres tonight! I'm soooo excited! Everyone knows! GGAAAAAHHHHHH!!!!!!!

I know I will adore the Little Mermaid ride too. I basically love EVERY dark ride!
Oh, good! Always be prepared.

I think it's definitely my favorite Muppet movie! Hahah it's seriously the cutest thing ever.

It was the best cartoon! It was one of the few we were allowed to watch there for a while. Okay, I've heard of Gummy Bears, but I didn't ever watch that one! (No idea why.) I've never heard of Wuzzles though.

Oh my gosh, did you watch it? It was phenomenal.

Dark rides are amazing already, but base one entirely off my lifelong favorite movie, and it's gonna be a hit with me. I probably will want to ride it at least 3 times in a row. Not that doing so will be possible, but it's worth a shot, right?

Once Upon A time !!! I love it, too !! I can't wait to see tonight's season premiere - YAY !!!
Nooooo! You must try! I don't see how it's possible to not be into the Muppets! Yall should give it another try!

The premiere was FANTASTIC! Ahhhhh.
