If you haven't seen the new Muppets Most Wanted movie, you must go! I'm happy to say that the character voices, as well as the movie style for this movie, are very similar to the original Muppets movies of my childhood. There are lots of snarky jokes and cheesy gags. But, that's what makes the Muppets so iconic. Of course, there are also a ton of celebrity guest appearances too, another trademark of the original Muppets genre. Oh, and if you need another reason to go see the film, it includes a NEW PIXAR SHORT! So, don't be late for the start of the film. You don't want to miss it!
I had the pleasure of attending the Disney Parks Blog movie screening at the Downtown Disney AMC Theaters prior to the movie release. It was another great meet-up! We were all treated to some delicious popcorn and drinks.
Our VIP entrance pass was in the form of a great Muppets Most Wanted button!
Fans who attended were asked to "show their Muppets side" by dressing in character. I was happy to oblige with my "ode to the glamorous Miss Piggy."
Surprisingly, I was approached by Sam Eagle (aka Steven Miller of Disney Parks Blog) to go on stage prior to the screening along with a few other fans to talk about our Muppets love. Those of us on stage received copies of the previous Muppet Movie DVD.
At the end of the screening, another surprise was waiting for us...SWEETUMS!
It was a great Muppets day at Disney.

Accessibility: Downtown Disney AMC Theaters are fully accessible. There are elevators to take guests to upper balcony levels inside the theater and special seating areas for wheelchairs/ECVs next to regular seating so that families may sit together.
*For this event, I was a guest of Disney's and did not pay for admission or refreshments. However, my opinions of the film are my own and unbiased.
