Hahahah awesome man. Fight performance art with performance art, I always say.


#3

When I was there on Dec. 22nd, a lone woman in the capacity crowd gave an abbreviated, though clearly supportive, cheer after Trumpbot spoke. I was disappoint.


#4

Disneyworld better fasten their seatbelts securely for the next few years on this ride. This will be far from the last time this happens.


#5

A hero comes in many shapes and sizes!


#6

He could have saved a lot of time and money and not freaked out any kids by just yelling at him through the TV.


#7

Disney Security:

Cross between Mayberry RFD, old school gas station attendant and a Marine Honor Guard.

Of course!


#8

Wait a minute…

Jay Malsky knew he’d never get close enough to Donald Trump to heckle him in person, so he did the next best thing…

Next best thing? I don’t know, I think that the animatronic might be smarter than @realdonaldtrump


#10

I don’t know about locking him up, but a restraining bolt might be prudent.


#11

Indeed. He’s more harmful than an IKEA dresser.


#12

You could probably sneak in a raspberry, loud cough, or other quick noises (especially easy to sneak in, if they’re natural like a cough) without getting caught. Come with a bunch of friends, sit separately, and disrupt the speech that way.

If that’s your sort of thing.


#13

First, I’d check if it was another IoS talky-toy with open Bluetooth.


#14

Why were you disappointed? Only one? Can you imagine her embarrassment?


#15

I love it that Disney security is code named “The Mouse” within the park. As in, “You better behave or else we’ll call The Mouse in after you!”


#16

Disney Jail” is the stuff of (urban) legend for teenagers who grew up in Southern California. I always pictured the place as a terrifyingly antiseptic white-tiled cellblock off the utilidors somewhere in the bowels of the park.

The treasure pile at the entrance to Pirates was the focus of another legend: the resting place of Walt’s cryo-storage unit.

Then there were the rumours about the brothel attached to Club 33.


#19

Tell me more… :smirk:

I don’t think I made it through a single show with Bush Jr.’s animatronic without someone yelling at it, and during Obama’s first year or so, there was always a heckler. I’ll likely just avoid the Trump version — I don’t like waiting for some doofus to heckle a robot.
