Park of the Week: Islands of Adventure

Watch The Muppets Declare America's Independence

July 4, 2021, 12:01 AM · Happy Fourth of July to theme park fans across America.

To celebrate the United States' Independence Day, I offer our video of The Muppets Present Great Moments in American History: The Declaration of Independence. Sadly, this fun show is no longer performed at Walt Disney World, but at least we still have video of it. The Muppets celebrate America like no one else.

No matter where you are in the world right now, I hope that you are looking toward a brighter future after the trials of the past year. And I hope that the year ahead offers you independence that allows you all the travel and theme park visits that you have been wishing to make. Happy Fourth, everyone!

Did Disney ever give a reason why they dropped this show? Never saw it, but it looks like a fun and entertaining little diversion. Lets guests watch "actual celebrities" perform in the middle of the Magic Kingdom.

I always enjoyed this little impromptu show…Was a nice little out of the way draw to what’s undoubtedly the slowest area of the park…First saw it in February 2018 and it’s been sorely missed in subsequent trips…Maybe one day they’ll re-work to fix whatever it was that caused them to cancel it in the first place…Seems like it really just came down to cost cutting?
