Warning to anyone who believes the theme park characters are real and not humans in a costume: don’t read this article. Or this warning.

WALT DISNEY WORLD, FL — Disney Cast Member Fabiana Cooper, whose name is being withheld for employee discipline reasons, caused a stir yesterday at the Magic Kingdom. Disney (the company) spokesperson Jun Disney (no relation) gave Uncle Walt’s Insider the details.

“The unnamed Cast Member [Ed.: Fabiana Cooper] misunderstood the new rules,” said Disney (no relation). “We had announced that masks were no longer required throughout Walt Disney World, except on public transportation. This particular Cast Member [Ed.: Ms. Cooper] thought that meant even the costumed characters did not have to wear their usual head gear.

“And because you-know-who [Ed.: you-know-who] ‘works with’ Mickey Mouse, she caused a bit of a stir when she came onstage without wearing Mickey’s head.”


Dozens of guests, if not hundreds, were traumatized before Ms. Cooper was ushered offstage.

Because of the trauma, Disney (the company) is breaking out its memory erasure technology, last used after Cinderella Castle partially deflated. The company has promised to provide free churros to any guests who still remember the incident after “treatment.”  

“In the Cast Member’s defense,” Disney (no relation) allowed, “Mickey is fully vaccinated, and wasn’t on Walt Disney World transportation at the time. The rule probably should have been a little clearer.”
