As we mentioned in an article a few weeks ago, The Muppet Courtyard, as well as a section of the Streets of America, is in the process of being revitalized as part of Hollywood Studios new Grand Avenue district.
However, it would appear that for now, that the fountain is safe. Various Disney sources have reported as of late that Missy Piggy and friends will be restored back to their former glory and that the fountain will be re-opened as part of Grand Avenue. However, some changes to the Muppet-themed area have taken place including the renaming of the Muppets Theater to “Grand Arts Theatre” complete with a new marquee.
It is expected when Star Wars Land opens in 2019 that Grand Avenue will serve as one of the entrance points to this new land. As we get near the opening of Star War, its safe to assume that more changes will be expected in this area. However, for the moment it would seem that Kermit, Miss Piggy and friends are safe.
