It has now been confirmed that the brand new Muppets Present… Great Moments in American History show will start on October 2nd 2016! This just so happens to be the day we are in the Magic Kingdom for the start of our October trip!

Orignal story:

So we get no Muppets for years, then Muppets movies and TV shows, then Muppets TV cancellations and now two pieces of Muppets news at Walt Disney World in quick succession!

Starting in October 2016, The Muppets Present… Great Moments in American History will a brand new live show performed outside of The Hall of Presidents at the Magic Kingdom Park.

Sam Eagle will be joined by Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy,  Fozzie Bear, The Great Gonzo and James Jefferson (who is town crier of Liberty Square) to perform this brand new show.

As these iconic characters all gather outside The Hall of Presidents they will retell history in typical Muppets format where I am sure hilarious results will follow.

Historic events will include the midnight ride of Paul Revere to the signing of the Declaration of Independence with their own take on the founding fathers and the beginnings of the United States of America.

The show will feature an original Muppets song and will play multiple times throughout the day.

Walt Disney World is getting more and more Muppety goodness and I can’t wait to see them take centre stage at the parks again!
