YouTube: Muppet Mobile Lab at Epcot

22 Aug

Orlando Attractions Magazine and Inside the Magic podcast have posted a video to YouTube, showing Bunsen and Beaker’s Muppet Mobile Lab in its latest test run, this time at Epcot. Based on the current video, it would seem they’ve made some real progress since the tests at Disney’s California Adventure earlier this year.

A higher-resolution version is available from OA’s own video page. The Orlando Sentinel has a brief article yesterday about the Muppet Mobile Lab as well.

Dave from MouseExtra is one of many who feel that the Muppets don’t belong at Epcot. I’ve got to agree that they’d make a lot more sense at MGM. But I assume this Epcot run is mostly just a technical test, and an opportunity to get a bit more feedback from guests who interact with the Lab, so I’ll cut a little slack here for Imagineering, and hope that they’re still making the rounds when I’m back at Walt Disney World next week!

Nothing Says “Mexico” Like . . . Donald Duck

28 Feb

The interweb’s abuzz with notes about the upcoming new Epcot attraction, “Gran Fiesta Tour Starring the Three Caballeros.” The DIS Board for example has updated its page on the Epcot Mexico pavilion.

I wish I could remember which podcaster I’m quoting here when I say “nothing says vacation in Mexico like . . . Donald Duck!”
