    Sad new from the Magic Kingdom, PUSH the Talking Trash can that interacts with Guests in Tomorrowland, is no more. Disney have confirmed that the contract has expired and there are no further negotiations taking place.

    PUSH was great fun and a well loved addition to Disney and he will be missed.

    Have you had any interactions with PUSH?

    I know, Disney were asked to confirm or deny and the day before they said he wasn't going anywhere, yet they've removed him. A sad loss as far as I'm concerned.

    While I never really went out of my way to try and find Push, it was fun watching him interact with the children and adults alike.

    Oddly enough in all the times that we have been to WDW, we only saw it once and that was on our recent trip a few weeks ago.
    It sure got a lot of attention at the time and it was very amusing to watch.

    We saw PUSH quite often and have some great video of 'him', Stitch and hubby in a quiet area of MK.
    We used to play 'spot the guy doing the talking'
    He was often right under our noses.....so close we didn't spot him for a while!!!

    Oh no... slowly but surely the old favourites are being done away with :( Do they think we don't notice? Newbies won't know the difference though so that's all that counts I guess :(

    The talk is, that the man behind Push started the rumour on twitter and facebook. His contract was due to end and he obviously thought Disney would pay him more because of the public outcry and publicity.

    According to another source, he has let his copyright lapse so there maybe a chance that Disney are thinking that they can make something better than Push.

    It will be interesting to see how this turns out.

    He gave my mom and step dad a special fastpass on their wedding day.

    It could be used on any one ride at any time at walt disney world. They used it for Soarin'.

    We were waiting for the parade and he noticed my moms wedding mickey ears and he started to talk to her. He disappeared and came back with a fastpass.

    He then moved down the street and tried to play skip rope with two cast members.

    My mom still talks about it now. She will be sad of the news lol
