When was the last time Muppet*Vision 3D received an update?! 1991 when it opened…All jokes aside, the preshow was updated for a little while to include characters and skits from the last Muppet movie, but with all of the excitement buzzing around the upcoming Muppets Haunted Mansion special, this is some big news!
Earlier today Disney released the official trailer for Muppets Haunted Mansion, and now we are excited to share some additional announcements fans can expect ahead of the special’s October 8 release date, including a new preshow for Muppet*Vision 3D at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
The pre-show will feature exclusive content from Muppets Haunted Mansion, and will debut at the attraction on October 1, 2021 (the 50th anniversary of the Walt Disney World Resort), just one week ahead of the special’s Disney+ debut.
