That just shows you what the over-sensitive world we live in is like.

Makes me wonder if they're ever going to put the animatronics back.

And what about that gator in It's A Small World, huh? In the Africa section,
I believe. Holding the umbrella in the "rain forest".

That going, too? :?r

Don't forget about the final section on Peter Pan's flight...

I understand that the news was shocking but this decision is a bit over the top, in my opinion.

Hope this is just a temporary thing, Disney really shouldn't touch the classic rides other than maintaining them. Still a salty sea dog about the changes they made to Boy-scouts of the Caribbean.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Here is another article, and just to be clear it says they removed Louis the gator from Princess and the Frog from the new Castle show before the show opened, which could have been unrelated, and that the Tic Toc Croc float has been absent in the parade per some guests. The article says that jokes from jungle cruise, which I get, and references to the crocs on the Safaris ride have been absent but it doesn't say anything about the animatronics on rides being removed yet.

Had an interesting/great day at the park this past Tuesday:
- got to the park (across the lake) by 8:30am
- hit up Seven Dwarfs with about a 10-15 minute standby wait
- after much bickering within our family, we ended up waiting for Peter Pan (I lost my vote!)
- 15 minutes in, announcement that the ride was temporarily not running
- stuck it out, and made it on after 45 minutes
- pissed that we killed an hour for Peter Pan!
- headed to Space Mountain via Fast Pass, and 10 minutes in- guess what? Temporarily not running, all guests were exited out, and provided a paper Fast Pass....."complained" about our previous Peter Pan encounter- and were provided another set of paper Fast Passes
- at that point, we had 2 "electronic" Fast Passes, and 2 paper Fast Passes
- head to the Haunted House (to use a set of our paper Fast Passes we were provided), and the attendant didn't bother to take them (guess I could have ponied them up, but didn't, with no guilt!)
- same thing happened on 2-3 more occasions.....we had our paper Fast Passes in hand, and the attendances didn't bother to take them!

Bottom line- b/c of those paper Fast Passes, we basically had walk ons all day! I guess with the Magicbands, the staff doesn't pay a lot of attention anymore? Eventually the paper Fast Passes were collected, but we used the last set around 9pm.

PS- seemed like a good amount of temporary ride closures throughout the day on numerous attractions.....is that common?

No matter the park, There are so many variables involved with even the simplest ride system that it's the equivalent to a crap shoot. Some days everything will work perfectly, other days a whole park will breakdown throughout the day. I wouldn't read into it except you just happened to be at the wrong place at the wrong time twice.

^^ To me it just seems like you can't control yourself from being an asshole even at the happiest place on earth. Taking advantage of other people's trust is only going to take good things away from all of us. That happened to me at Shanghai too, and I gave my paper fast pass to the CM at the exit because that's common sense! SMH

https://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2016/07/the-muppets-are-coming-to-walt-disney-world-resort-this-fall-in-an-all-new-show/

Beginning this fall, the Muppets will be visiting Magic Kingdom Park, where they’ll take part in an all-new live show, “The Muppets Present… Great Moments in American History.”

Sam Eagle, the fiercely patriotic American eagle who is forever trying to set a high moral standard for the Muppets, will join Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear, The Great Gonzo and James Jefferson, town crier of Liberty Square, as they gather outside The Hall of Presidents to present historical tales in hysterical fashion as only they can. From the midnight ride of Paul Revere to the signing of the Declaration of Independence, the Muppets appear throughout the day to share with Guests, their own unique take on the founding fathers and the birth of the United States of America.

Featuring an original song and plenty of wacky Muppets humor, “The Muppets Present… Great Moments in American History” will make its debut in October 2016.
