It looks as though, for better or for worse, we will soon be losing the beloved-but-dated Muppet Vision 3D to (most likely) Monstropolis. To me the decision makes sense and is an easy one to make, especially considering the E-ticket Door Coaster is about as surefire of a hit attraction as the imagineers could think up. While these developments are exciting, it does leave the parks without one of the longstanding staples; The Muppets.
A couple years ago, we got a glimpse at how the Muppets can be and still are popular in today's market with "The Muppets," and with a sequel in the works it appears that they are gonna stick around for a bit. But now there will not be any attraction to house them, and they will likely live on only through park merchandise. So the question becomes, what should Disneyland do with the Muppets?
I have a couple ideas, but the one I seem to like the most is a dinner theatre idea. Something where people can make reservations for a meal and enjoy a show with live-action Muppets as they dine. The theatre would not even have to be in one of the parks, necessarily, but even just in Downtown Disney so that locals can get in on the action. Showings could be subject to demand with the ebbs and flows of the seasons, and the show could change pending on seasonal celebrations as well. I can see the marquee now, advertising the new Muppet Theatre presentation of "The Frog Who Came to Dinner."
What other ideas do you have for finding a home for The Muppets?
