Review: The Muppets Present… Great Moments in American History
Despite a spot on Magic Kingdom’s daily time sheet, “The Muppets Present… Great Moments in American History” has largely become a hidden gem of Liberty Square. Nestled between “The Hall of Presidents” and “Heritage House” this Muppets presentation is a comedy your whole family is sure to enjoy.
Join Town Crier James Jefferson as he recounts the story of the American Revolution, led of course by the most patriotic puppet in the world: Sam Eagle. For fans of “Muppet Vision 3D”, the ensuing tale is reminiscent of a “salute to all nations, but mostly America”; a show created with good intentions that starts to go awry. It really is an amazing sight when Sam Eagle emerges from the top of “The Hall of Presidents” calling on Kermit, Miss Piggy, Fozzie, and Gonzo to join him in his salute. In true Muppet style, the midnight ride of Paul Revere, the events of the Revolution, and the signing of the Declaration of Independence are recounted despite many mishaps that cause Sam to see “red, white, and blue”.
This show is not to be missed. It is the perfect way to wait for your next FastPass or the next showing of Royal Friendship Faire. It is safe to say this show is memorable for the whole family. I saw the show for the first time over Christmas with my family that consisted of my parents, uncle, and siblings. All of them laughed and joined in the fun and were thoroughly satisfied with the show. The highlights of the show are Miss Piggy’s many costume changes. As always, she demands to be the centre of attention and changes her attire to suit her needs.
While there are no seats, sitting on the ground or standing still provides good views as the show takes place on the upper levels of the buildings. With classic Muppet humour, Disney charm, and an original song, “The Muppets Present… Great Moments in American History” is a show you don’t want to miss.
