Only one attraction at the Walt Disney World Resort features The Muppets, so for a guaranteed sighting of these favorite characters, Guests will have to visit Muppet*Vision 3-D in Disney’s Hollywood Studios. In years past, The Muppets could be spotted in Liberty Square in the Magic Kingdom, where “The Muppets Present…Great Moments in American History,” a short show performed in the windows above The Hall of Presidents.

The Muppet Mobile Lab, a free-roving show featuring Muppets as Audio-Animatronics, previously ran in EPCOT, but it has been spotted in a couple of years.

During a recent trip to Walt Disney World, Gonzo the Great and Walter took a spin on Journey Into Imagination With Figment, where Gonzo even shared how his friendship with Figment goes way back.

There might have been some disagreement over whether or not Figment (and his friendship with Gonzo) is real, or just a Figment of his imagination, but we’ll let the fans decide what’s really going on here:

While it looks like Gonzo and Walter did have a blast riding Journey Into Imagination, it does make us wonder whether we could be seeing more of The Muppets at Walt Disney World in the future. At Disneyland, The Muppets have appeared on Main Street, U.S.A. during the holiday season, and while it was specifically for the 30th anniversary of The Muppet Christmas Carol (1992), new photo ops featuring the characters debuted at the Magic Kingdom for last year’s Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party.

Will we end up seeing more from The Muppets soon? Only time will tell, but we will keep you updated if any new developments arise here on Disney Tips.
