Best Attraction: The Muppets Present...
THE MUPPETS PRESENT... GREAT MOMENTS IN AMERICAN HISTORY
If you’re in Magic Kingdom and finding yourself to be in a particularly patriotic mood—only to learn that the Hall of Presidents is currently closed (they are adding the animatronic of our new president and set to reopen at the end of June)—then, you are in the right place for a fun new show featuring the Muppets!
The Muppets Present...great Moments in American History is a live show in Liberty Square that mostly takes place in the second-story windows of the Hall of Presidents and the Heritage House, which is adjacent to the Hall of Presidents. Everyone has a great view, since you watch the entire show looking up at the windows!
There is no Fastpass+ for this experience, as it is simply the “walk-up and enjoy” kind of entertainment. The live show plays several times a day, so be sure to check the current Times Guide, or the My Disney Experience App to find the show times during your visit.
There are actually two different shows to be enjoyed; there is the “Declaration of Independence” sketch, and the “Midnight Ride of Paul Revere” sketch. Each show is approximately 7-11 minutes long and features Sam Eagle, Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Gonzo, and Fozzie (and some chickens!). In the Declaration of Independence version, the town crier, James “J.J.” Jefferson, also plays host to the show.
The Muppets hilariously narrate and reenact the events that unfolded during these two significant times in American history. Sam Eagle’s intense patriotism provides many jokes
that hopefully all will find funny (“Greetings my fellow Americans… and OTHERS”).
The Muppets are actual puppets being puppeteered by Cast Members alongside a prerecorded track.
Who will love it?
Both Americans and OTHERS (sorry, I couldn’t help it!) will find the slapstick comedic style of the Muppets to be entertaining. All kids love puppets, though the littlest ones may not understand the subject matter, the puppets are still silly to watch. With many showings throughout the day, this is a fun entertainment option to catch as you’re making your way through Liberty Square.
No tips here really, other than to consider the fact that you’ll be standing and looking up for 7-11 minutes, so consider finding a nice viewing spot with shade if you are watching in the middle of the day. Try catching the show more than once to be able to see both versions.
