Disney responds to rumors of PUSH the talking trash can leaving Magic Kingdom
Feb 7, 2014
Rumors have been swirling on the internet that PUSH, the talking trash can in the Magic Kingdom, will be going away permanently this weekend. PUSH has been a popular attraction in Tomorrowland for 19 years and fans were outraged over the possibility that he might be leaving. PUSH "walks" around Tomorrowland, stopping guests to joke, chat, sing and even dance with them. It's always fun to watch him startle unsuspecting guests as they try to throw their trash away in him and he quickly draws a crowd.
After Facebook pages, Twitter hastags and discussion board threads exploded, begging Disney to save PUSH, the company officially responded. A Disney spokesperson said there was "nothing to the rumors and PUSH isn't going anywhere." Fans aren't sure if the rumors were false or if Disney was actually planning to retire PUSH until they saw the outpouring of support from fans. No matter what happened, fans can rest easy knowing that PUSH will still be around to have fun with Walt Disney World guests.
