    I can confirm that it is, in fact, under construction at DHS right now.
    You'll be able to build your own Muppet by picking a body, eyes, nose, hair and cloths.
    Don't know when it is scheduled to open yet, but from the looks of a pic I saw, it looks to be VERY soon.

    I've been hearing about this shop for quite a while now, from what I remember. Glad to hear it'll finally be opening soon.
    Really, Walt? Disneyland is MY land? Why would I want a silly little land when I can have the WORLD.

    Re: Muppets What Not Shop

    I have one of those muppets. You can get them in NYC at FAO SHWARTS(I think that is how its spelled.) They are very neat. You get to pick body shape and color, eyes, nose, mouth, hair, and even clothes. It takes a while to pick it out though as they cost about $115 a piece, and you want to make sure that is how you want it. Once you picked everything out, it takes them about an hour to build, depending on how busy they are. Remember though, this info is about the shop in NYC, so it might not be accurate.

    So this is essentially like the Build-A-Bear of Muppets?

    Yeh in a way... I live on Long Island, and go to the city often... the FAO Schwartz in Manhattan has one, the last time I checked... It is cool because you can really have creative control on your very own muppet what not...

    Re: Muppets What Not Shop

    Ooooh, that's exciting! I wonder if that's part of the reason why Muppet Vision 3D is closed for refurbishment? I've always wanted to make one of those in NY and haven't had a chance. I'd rather make it in WDW anyway!
