Muppets at Epcot
Written by Mitchell Botwin
There is a new feature available at Epcot. The Muppets have arrived. We were greeted by Professor Bunsen Honeydew and Beaker traveling around the park talking with guests and testing out new Muppet Labs technology. This involved smoke, water, bubbles, sirens and anything else they could fit in the mobile Muppet lab. I forgot to bring my camera, so no pictures. The mobile lab would roll out from imagination and roll to the open area near the bathrooms opposite The Land. The 2 lab assistants keep people back and bring the microphone to guests so they can interact with the Doctor and Beaker. The Doctor would also pick people out of the crowd to interact with.Tweet
The base of the lab is a Segway so it gives it an uneven movement which goes great with the lab. There is no visible controller which adds to the fun. The show ran for about 15 minutes so it didn't feel rushed.
I hope Disney will make this a permanent part of Epcot.
