Quote from: "WDSfans"MuppetMagique???Posted by Kristof on Tuesday, October 13 2009After recent reports of Disney wanting to include The Muppets brand in the Studios, lots of speculation has surfaced on Disney fan sites and forums rapidly.Over the last few days there have been a range of rumors online, some suggesting that something small like a Muppet Happening, similar to those in the Disneyland Park could be on the way, and a few others are looking towards the Muppet Mobile Labs Living Character initiative that launched in the States a few years ago.However, the biggest rumors are suggesting that Disney and Imagineering are looking at bringing a permanent yet cheap addition to expand the park at a reasonable cost, rather than a temporary addition. A what better attraction ticks all of the boxes than a clone of the hugely popular Muppet*Vision 3D from the US parks (which just happens to be preparing for a re-mastered version in Disney Digital 3D next year)?The bad news however is that Disney want it to be a quick and cheap attraction so that it can be openned in 2011, filling the gap between the openings of Toy Story Playland and the rumored Ratatouille dark ride. This has resulted in a string of rumors suggesting that the 3D attraction will replace either Animagique or Cinemagique in the next year.It is unknown as to which, if either, of the two attractions are more likely to go. The Muppets down-to-earth nature may not be Toon enough for the Toon Studio, and what better place to have The Muppets than next to the television studios; where their careers truely began? But is Imagineering really willing to sacrifice the hidden gem that is Cinemagique, even if it has seen a drop in attendance over the years? Would they?The Mystery Deepens...
Quote from: "DLRP Today"WDS Making a Muppet out of us!? Muppet and STT EXCLUSIVE!Wednesday, 14th October 2009 17:50 GMTAlmost all of the mass online rumors about a new Muppet related project for the Studios for 2011 have been squashed, as a new exciting DLRP Today exclusive hits the net!Since Monday, when the news broke that Disney want the highly popular Muppets brand to be featured at its Paris Parks, a flurry of internet rumors have risen all over the Disney fan community over what is actually in the pipeline. One of the biggest (and perhaps most worrying) came from our partner site WDSfans, which reported rumors of a clone of the popular US attraction; Muppet*Vision 3D replacing either Animagique or Cinemagique as a quick, cheap alternative. However, with exciting news from a DLRP Today insider, we can exclusively confirm that this rumor is not true!So what is going on then?Well, from our insider source, DLRP Today can reveal exclusively tonight that a Muppet themed area will be the next big expansion for the park, pushing the boundaries out and beyond the Studio Tram Tour! Land clearing and construction has already commenced on the project in the land behind the Studio Tram Tour, and the project is set to open in April 2011, at the begining of the Resorts next theme year. The Future!?Even though we do not know what the new Muppet area will include, we can reveal some very exciting news regarding the Studio Tram Tours future too. The attraction, which has been running despite its low guest satisfaction since the park opened in 2002, will close at the end of Summer 2010, when the station and Reign of Fire set will be removed, and prepared for a re-opening with new sets and effects in 2012, in time for the resorts 20th anniversary. We've been informed that this move will not only improve the attraction itself, but will also pave the way for future expansions and projects too!DLRP are expected to make a press release for the new Muppet project available by the end of the week, so make sure to keep an eye on DLRP Today for more exciting news soon.
