Magic Kingdom unveils Trump campaign ad on Main Street USA.
WALT DISNEY WORLD, FL — Since the earliest days of Disneyland, Disney theme parks have sought corporate sponsors for many locations and attractions, but politics were off-limits. But, as with the prohibitions against alcohol and Cast Member piercings, the restriction against political ads is going away.
Disney (the company) spokesperson Jun Disney (no relation) spoke with Uncle Walt’s Insider.
“Disney Parks and Resorts and Spas is [are?] always looking for ways to make the guest experience better while generating revenue,” Disney (no relation) says. “We’d always tried to keep politics out, because guests visit our parks and spas to escape the outside world. But then Trump offered us a lot of money.”
For now, at least, the ads will only be in the US parks (Florida, California, and Michigan). Disney plans to keep the political messaging even.
“Mr. Trump naturally gravitated towards sponsoring Main Street USA, since it celebrates an America that never existed.
“We’re still working with the Democrats on their ad. The more socialist among them want to sponsor Fantasyland, while those in Congress are strongly inclined towards Storybook Circus.”
Is this a natural result of allowing alcohol? Let us know in the comments below!
