#SavePush

Contract disputes could send Push the talking trash can to the scrap heap! Inside the Magic has started a campaign to save this cute little guy. Let's all do our part to help out!!

We've been lucky enough to see PUSH our last few visits. It's hilarious to watch the interaction with both adults and children. It would be a real loss to see this go.

I do believe there are a couple guys that are Pushes helpers. They both can't have contract disagreements.

My understanding is that PUSH doesn't belong to Disney. The contract dispute is between Disney and the company that owns PUSH and some other items that are used by Disney...not the employees that handle PUSH.

Maybe Disney should do their own version and call it "Shove". So when Push comes to Shove...

Seriously though, I think Push is awesome! I've seen him twice. It's just such great idea and so entertaining. Everyone loves Push!

The funny thing is that the first time I encountered Push, I didn't know anything about it. I just suddenly saw this trash can running around talking. I was like "What the ?????". I was laughing so hard when I saw what it was doing. laugh

Thank you. I get it now. I'll admit I was confused by the whole contract dispute.

I'm kind of in a love hate relationship with Push right now. He'd better apologize before he leaves, if he leaves or if he haven't left yet. I haven't seen him out at all lately and he's not listed anywhere.

I saw Push doing it's thing 2 weeks ago. If I knew it was on the way out, I would have stopped and watched the whole show.

The Mouse pays little heed to what guests want. Once they make up their mind something will go, nothing can stop it. There was an huge, organized, concerted effort to Save the Adventurers Club and it was completely ignored.

He was making fun of us that work fastpass+ saying we do nothing all day but stand there and look pretty. He said that Starbucks is so expensive so they can pay us to stand there. He also said that they may need to add a second Starbucks to help pay for us.

I also saw the post/thread where Disney have said he isn't going anywhere.

We have seen him once and he was really funny, thankfully he didn't make fun of any CMs when we saw him.

I think he might have a sarcastic side and that's what that was. I don't think he meant it. He did it multiple times and to get attention.

He did. I did laugh at most of it and went along with it.

I did see Push backstage today and he asked for a group hug. One of my co-workers said today is his last day but also Disney sort of said he's not going anywhere. Not sure what the official word is.

Hmm...maybe Push is a middle child. They're the ones that are supposed to act out to get extra attention, right? laugh

I am sorry to hear this but as a side note I really think those Imagineers would have had the capability to design and build their own PUSH, without having to lease it from another designer.
After all the Imagineers lists of accomplishments are a mile long, just saying..

Coming from someone who loathes the dance parties everywhere in the bubble, it's obviously not good news for me. gaah yuck

I never had the opportunity to meet PUSH but for park guests who did, it had to be a thrill getting to interact with him in Tomorrowland. The videos I saw on YouTube were moments I swear I would never see at a regular theme park. The way I see it, it's a lose-lose situation. Disney's PR looks really bad because they told a major newspaper like the Sentinnel PUSH was not leaving but now look at the result and the park guests lose out on another little thing that makes WDW stand out. All that's left are the memories PUSH brought to park guests and here are a few I found on YouTube:

Part 2 of the 2nd video is here:

However, if someone managed to copyright the idea before, Disney would not have the legal right to design their own Push. Disney knows better than anyone the value and laws of intellectual property. They pretty much wrote the book.
