Kermit Balloon Officially Removed from Disney’s Hollywood Studios

We reported previously that that Kermit balloon that was on top of MuppetVision 3D in Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Walt Disney World was rumored to be permanently removed.  We have received confirmation that the balloon is officially gone and no longer there.  The reason for the remove was rumored to be the fact that the balloon was visible from various focal points in the park, which would interfere with the new themed lands that are being built.


There has been no word that MuppetVision 3D will close.  With the renovation to change up Pizza Planet into a Muppet-themed pizza location, we expect that the Muppets will continue to have some presence at Disney’s Hollywood Studios for at least a little while.

As always, we will keep you posted as we learn more about upcoming changes to the park.

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
