Sad news park fans, the Kermit the Frog hot air balloon that has been floating high above MuppetVision 3D is set to be removed within the next few weeks.

The balloon is apparently being removed due to it being visible to guests who will be in Star Wars Land. It turns out Disney don’t want the balloon to remove guests from the atmosphere once inside the land.

It is sad to see another icon disappear at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, no word on whether this 26 year old balloon will resurface somewhere else in the park just yet. It seems unlikely…
