A decent attraction is needed. The 3D film is iight the first few times but I rather see a Roger Rabbit type "Muppet Mayhem" kind of attraction. I wouldn't mind if they knocked down Muppet 3D in place of an attraction.
How come it is always me who ends up on the 'other' side of things?
**checks page 313 of 'Dianetics', muttering, "What's wrong with me?"**
Here it goes: I was never in love with non-Disney franchises having prominent representation in the Parks. I certainly realize that the Muppets have been 'acquired' by Disney. These characters however are famous as non-Disney entities.
More reliance on non-Disney entertainment seems a poor precedent to set. The 'Star Wars' franchise is still a Lucas property, more the reason to limit its influence in the Parks. Would it be cool to have Kermit and Vader running around the Park? Maybe, but ultimately I believe it is a dangerous foundation to build upon thematically.

I kinda' agree with you Fo. I think first Disney needs to really put out better quality movies, in order for those characters to be represented in the part. The last few years have really lacked and they've relied on Pixar too much. Because their movies have been lacking, character recognition isn't high. I don't know how Disney can fix the problem, except write better scripts, don't rely so much on computer animation, and write characters that resonate with kids.
That being said: I am a huge Muppets fan. I love the Fraggles. Big Bird was my first crush. Oh! And I am a 2nd generation Muppets fan (my dad looks like Honey Dew, but loves Beaker.) so if I could see the Muppets (not the 6ft tall Piggy, but a normal sized Gonzo... like a real puppet sized one), I'd be so starstruck. The Muppets 3D lacks though.
