“Hi Dad,
We will be going to WDW on August 13th. My 10 yr old is crazy about Peter Pan and saw that in years past you could get pictures with the character in front of Peter Pan’s Flight. Is that still possible?

Also, she wants to see the Muppet Mobile Lab that sometimes appears behind Spaceship Earth. Would you know if that still appears in EPCOT? Thanks so much for any help you can give. She is really looking forward to seeing these 2 things and any info I can have beforehand may prevent her from being disappointed on our trip. Thanks!”

It could happen, maybe

Wow, you almost tripped me up on these. I have to say, I’ve never actually seen Peter Pan and friends around Peter Pan’s Flight or the Muppet Mobile Lab in EPCOT, but…

After a little research (Dad’s crack researcher) I found that both are actually real and still happen.

Peter Pan and Friends

Peter Pan and Wendy will sometimes come out near Peter Pan’s Flight in the afternoons and tell stories about how the beat the dastardly Captain Hook.

You can find times (usually between noon and 3:30) on the Disney World website.

Muppets Mobile Lab

The Muppets Mobile Lab Show

The Muppets Mobile Lab show was introduced several years ago. It still happens but finding out when and where is not easy.

Muppets Mobile Lab is not a scheduled show. You won’t find show times on the Disney app. The show is not listed on the Disney World website. Show times are not published on the maps.

Oh, and while for years the show was found behind Mission Space it’s now either at the EPCOT Character Spot or over around Mission Space.

To find out more I’d pop into Guest Services in EPCOT (located close to Spaceship Earth) and ask if there was a show today. They might know, they might not.

Destinations to Travel

Dad’s Bottom Line

Peter Pan storytelling and Muppet Mobile Lab are both still available, at least currently. You can find information for Peter Pan easily on the Disney website. Finding out out Muppet Mobile Lab is a bit of a challenge. Good hunting.

I was in EPCOT in January 2018. The Muppets Lab show happened in front of the Fountain of Nations next to the Pin Traders.
