Disney World Pulls Greeting 'Boys and Girls' to Be 'Inclusive' (VIDEO)


By Cassandra Fairbanks

The Magic Kingdom fireworks show at Disney World has removed their classic greeting of “boys and girls” to be more “inclusive.”

The fireworks show has traditionally opened with “ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls,” but they will now be opening with “good evening, dreamers of all ages!”

Disney World employees were invited to a “cast member” preview of the “Happily Ever After” fireworks show on Wednesday. The show was the same, but the opening was noticeably different.

Fox News reports that Jack Wagner, known as “the voice of Disney,” estimated that he “uttered the phrase over 8 million times during his two-decade tenure as park announcer for Disneyland, Disney World and Tokyo Disneyland.”

While Disney World has not yet commented on the change, a similar update was made at Tokyo Disney Resort in March and the park said that it was to be more “gender inclusive.”

“We want all guests to have a fun and comfortable experience at Tokyo Disney Resort, and we hope this change will make guests of all gender identities feel more comfortable when they visit our parks,” an Oriental Land Company spokesperson said in March. “In consideration of these ideals and in light of changing social norms, we decided to make this change.”

In January, Disney World removed “offensive” depictions of native people from the Jungle Cruise ride to reflect “the diversity of the world around us.”

In June, they announced they will be changing Splash Mountain to a “Prince and the Frog” themed ride because it was based on the 1946 Disney movie “Song of the South,” which has been deemed problematic and “racist.”

Fox News reports that Disney Parks around the world have also featured same-sex couples and children with disabilities on the cover of park guide maps. The Walt Disney Company also introduced “inclusion” as its fifth key in cast member training in September 2020.

    I guess if there’s anywhere to play make believe it would be Disney world. Too bad it taints my childhood.

    :Hello all you fucking freaks, and welcome to Woke Disney World, where all of your ridiculous bullshit hopes and fruity dreams really do come true!”

    From the NY post story “Disney will also be donating $400,000 to nonprofits Make-A-Wish, Starlight Children’s Foundation, Boys & Girls Clubs of America and the Nature Conservancy.” So remove boys and girls from the greeting, but donate to boys & girls clubs of America? I don’t really care all that much, but this just seemed strange to me.

    Glad I went to it in the 60’s and 70’s… Now it just seems to be an adult park which lets in kids for sorting and future breeding. Sad.

    Gross

    From now on, they’ll just call everyone “Comrades.”

  8. Rumham says:

    This is non news.
    The only element that is, is the fact that it took this long to make the change.
    Being that Disney is the “wokest” when it comes to this type of insanity.
    I keep repeating to everyone, “the emperor wears no clothes.”
