The Muppets have returned to the Magic Kingdom as it begins its holiday season. Kermit, Miss Piggy, Fozzie, Gonzo (and chickens of course), and Sam Eagle have all returned for the merriest time of the year.
Today, guests visiting Liberty Square saw Kermit and the gang in the windows they once inhabited for The Muppets Present … Great Moments in American History. Now instead of the windows being decked with patriotic bunting, they are instead decked out for the holidays. The Muppets themselves appear in the winter and silently interact with the guests below and with each other. This leads to little magical moments that are almost skit-like from the Muppets in the windows.
The arrival of the Muppets in the windows continues the trend of socially distanced character photo opportunities that are found around the park.
The Muppets are back out in Liberty Square! 🎄
They’re not speaking, but are doing short skits and taking physically-distanced selfies! pic.twitter.com/vaZtWyD5V4

The Muppets Present … Great Moments in American History was a live show that opened in Liberty Square at Magic Kingdom on October 2, 2016. The two versions of it told the story of The Midnight Ride of Paul Revere and The Declaration of Independence. The show continued until October 5, 2019, when it went on a three-month hiatus. It returned briefly for a seasonal run during Christmas Week later that year. Its final performance was on February 17, 2020.
