Meet the Stars
This show that you will find in New York Street opened in 1991 and we have been to see it every time we have visited Hollywood Studios since its original opening. It is enjoyed by all members of our family from the Grandparents down to the youngest child.
The theatre that it is staged in holds nearly 600 people so do not be discouraged by large crowds queuing; you only usually have to wait about 15-20 minutes for the next show.
To get the full effect of this show you will have to wear special 3D glasses to enjoy it properly. Young children who are a bit apprehensive about the show are often better not wearing them initially then you may persuade them to put them on later in the show. Our youngest girl used to find some parts of the show, particularly the conclusion very loud. We used to remove her 3D glasses and close her eyes.
This three dimensional film includes Miss Piggy, Kermit, Gonzo, Sam Eagle and many other familiar Muppet faces.
While you are waiting to go into the show you enter the theatre’s "warehouse”. Here you will have the opportunity to browse among prop boxes filled with goodies that belong to the Muppet stars. On overhead monitors you watch a very funny video that lasts about ten minutes. See if you can spot the Hidden Mickey in the pre-show video, it is just after Scooter crosses the screen for the second time.
Look out in the pre-show area there is a sign that tells you the key has been left under the mat, if you look down, you'll find the mat, and there really is a key under it!
Sweetums, a scary-looking but very friendly monster, walks around the front of the theatre during the show. If you think your child might enjoy seeing him up close, try to sit toward the front.
As you relax in your plush chair in the theatre and put on your special 3D glass you will be blasted with a burst of air and suddenly you will find yourself in a shower of soap bubbles. The bubbles continue at various times throughout the show.
In the Muppet Laboratories Dr. Bunsen Honeydew and his assistant, Beaker, begin the demonstration with disastrous results, accidentally releasing a 3D character called Waldo. Things go from bad to worse, as the Swedish Chef commandeers the projector in the rear of the theatre and Statler and Waldorf heckle from their box seats.
The show comes to a noisy conclusion, with cannons exploding, fireworks blasting and penguins squawking in a hectic but happy ending.
As you leave the show Kermit and Miss Piggy sometimes greet guests at the exit. Other characters can be found throughout Disney Hollywood Studios, be sure to check your daily Guide Map for times and locations.
