Someday Disney may be just a mere shadow of what it once was. That would be sad.

I will miss Push. My grandchildren always had a great time when they got to see Push.
This ^ ... much of what I love about Disney are the small things like PUSH. It is sad to see these things going away. PUSH, Remy at Chefs De France, the Ziti Sisters, Four 4 a Dollar singers at Beauty and the Beast, waking up Tinkerbell at MK... Sad.

GOOD NEWS!!!!


Disney told the Orlando Sentinel that PUSH isn't going anywhere! Do you think they had plans to remove him and changed them based on the response from fans?

Orlando reporter Jason Garcia talked to Disney and according to him PUSH isn't going anywhere!

Nikki you just made my day!

Do I think fans helped...for sure. If Disney doesn't come out and say we never intended for this to happen and it was purely a rumor gone wild then you have to believe that they intended for him to go. I know after I heard about it I posted on FB, Twitter, and emailed Disney. Imagine if everyone did that...or even half!

This is getting stranger and stranger.

I just heard another rumor saying PUSH's last day was yesterday despite Disney telling The Orlando Sentinel that he wasn't going away. Now cast members are supposedly saying that Disney did, in fact, confirm PUSH is gone. Again, a rumor, but that means then...

Rumor came out.

Fans responded.

Disney tells Jason Garcia at The Sentinel that the rumors are false.

Disney lied.

Disney removes PUSH.

I'm not buying it. What do you guys think?

What's next, Lights of Winter?

LOL!

Someone just told me that she heard it had to do with contract negotiations and the like. There's a possibility that the original rumor was put out there by the employee in order to drum up support and encourage Disney to renew. Rumor, again, but good LORDY.

Well Disney didn't lie they said they wouldn't get rid of push they never said they wouldn't retire push he can still be seen in every park just stand next o a trash can it might be push. Maybe they could move him to a corner in golden oaks or a retirement community so he can enjoy his lays few years before he get repurposed into something else.


It sad he tried to lead the fight to find out what happened to the talking palm tree and his cousin the recycling can in ak and they give him the axe I guess he asked to many questions and tried to get to many people to write Disney.

This explains why CMs were telling guests what they were--official orders, seemingly screen-capped from the CM webpage:

With the recent PUSH merchandise that was unveiled, this has me surprised and now truly concerned about Figment (who also had new merch recently).

I'm making a prediction that the new WDW trash can salt and pepper shakers will be released this week. Just watch.

That definitely looks like a notice from the Hub.

I like Q5 - apparently they realized they lied.

It isn't so much that PUSH is gone...I could have accepted that (as much as I dislike it), but I'm more upset that Disney lied about it the day before.

The "contract" thing has me puzzled. If it was for the performer, I'd expect that they had more than one, and could have trained others. If it was for PUSH, then it wasn't a creation of WDI? Or they are using it as an excuse...

It's possible, considering the other recent entertainment cuts we've been hearing about. But it also seems like a thousand different 'facts' and 'rumors' are being thrown around with this one, so there's not a lot of solid evidence on what to believe re: WHY there was a rumor or WHY Push was canned.

I do not think Disney would have CM's talking about contract employees vs CM's. That makes no sense. Talk about spoiling the magic. Push is on an extended leave for refurbishment. I do not hear CM's saying that Spectromagic's last performence was on x-date and the equipment was old and crapped out.
