The Muppets are back, but will they take more of a place in Disney's theme parks?

Although there hasn't been a Muppet movie in over a decade, there have been viral videos from the Muppets. To top it off, the Muppet movie trailers have been clever spoofs of other movies coming out this year.
With their new movie debut, The Muppets represent a side of Disney that we haven't seen before - hip, clever banter, low brow jokes and excessive explosions (sans pirates). This, of course, leads to the question, will we see more Muppets in the parks?
Muppet Vision 3D is a favorite amongst fans, despite that irritating Waldo. Could we be seeing a long needed update on the attraction?
There was also that technical display of awesomeness with the Muppets Mobile Lab. If you have never seen video of that, you should.
The area around Muppet Vision 3D was a planned Muppets land. There was to be a live Muppet show and a Muppet dark ride. When the merger of Jim Henson Studios never came to be after Jim Henson's untimely death, the area remained largely undeveloped except that now out of place Pizza Planet restaurant.
Could we see this long lost attraction ideas return? Could we see a brand new ride idea for the Muppets? Who knows, but lets hear your ideas.
