PUSH No More

by josh on February 9, 2014

I don’t usually run news-y posts like this, but the website relies on controversy to push (get it) pageviews so here you have it.

I guess PUSH came to shove.

While little more than a remote controlled car with an operator speaking a handful of feet away, PUSH had a lot of heart and was one of the more unique entertainment offerings at Walt Disney World. Fortunately, Magic Kingdom still offers a “rich mix of atmosphere entertainment throughout Magic Kingdom, such as the new “#INCREDIBLESSuperDanceParty.”

Yes, it really is called that.

Push joins recent departures, including Miyuki in Japan and the Ziti Sisters in Italy over at Epcot. Miyuki left on her own accord, while the Zitis reportedly were cut from the budget to support the Frozen ladies. We all know the theme park business runs on razor-thin two-billion-dollars-per-quarter profit, so these cuts are unsurprising.

Bye Push. Miss you <3

Josh, I would love to hear more about fast pass +. Tons of bad reviews all over the place but with no real descriptions on how it works in all of the parks. I’m going in May and I’m kind freaking out about what will happen.

The Incredibles dance party was painful to watch.

The prices just keep going up, while all of the “extras” just keep being slashed.

Meanwhile Universal is investing millions of dollars per year to update their parks.

Don’t forget Remy and his handler left Chefs de France in November.

…but – but – they are adding these great things like “dance parties” to replace these losses, right?. I mean, dance parties are certainly what WE go to Disney for, after all.

When Pluto is a part of the Dance party and not Mrs. Incredible (who seems to have a problem with keeping her “face” on) then I love the Dance party in Tomorrowland.

I think I only saw PUSH once, and not for long. It’ll live forever on YouTube. I’d be more upset about Remy leaving the French restaurant – saw someone comment on that here. I got to see him once and took his picture, but the kiddo wasn’t with me so she’ll never get to see him “in person.” Oh well…again, YouTube. Thanks to people for posting the OrlandoSentinel link(s)…through one of those there were pictures (in the “related” section on the left) of close-up details of the Seven Dwarfs Mine Coaster, which I loved seeing. Can’t wait until THAT is open!

When our daughter was 2 years old, we took her to wdw for first time (animal kingdom, epcot, and magic kingdom). At the end of the trip, when asked what was her favorite part… she said the talking trashcan was the best part.

Josh, are you trapped underneath something heavy and can’t get to the computer? Do you need help?

Push has eaten Josh. That is why there have been no posts in over 1 week.

My over-riding memory is watching some little darling, complete with princess dress, kicking seven bells out of him while he made haste for an exit. Ahh, the memories!

I saw PUSH at Hong Kong Disneyland. He drew a big crowd. I couldn’t understand what he was saying (speaking cantonese…I think) but he had the whole crowd cracking up.
