Come and join us for another installment of the WDW-Memories podcast, where I try to make it possible for you relive your Walt Disney World Memories when you can’t actually be there.

I love this time of year, snow, presents, time off… what could be better. I know, MUPPETS!
So it’s been Muppet mania every where you look right now. It seems the Marketing guys are getting bonuses for the number of different ways they can push their product, and I think they’re going to get a big bonus. So I figured that this would be a perfect time to share with all off you an old video I have of a long lost attraction. I didn’t realize how unique this attraction was when I first saw it, or even until recently.
Here Come The Muppets was a temporary stage show featuring all your favorite pals in one place. Today’s memory was from Summer of 1990. My dad, brother, sister, and I are back in the Disney-MGM Studios. We’ve seen a few attractions already and decided to see this new Muppet thing. I’d read somewhere that Disney and Jim Hensen were working on a collaborative thing, but that would still be in the future, so this show as a little surprise to me. In any case, we’re going to join this memory in the waiting lobby. There is a small TV, which is a little hard to hear, but we’ll start by watching that. Then we’re ushered in to the main auditorium where we turn the camera back on, a few seconds into the show. You haven’t missed much but Kermet walking on stage.
