Disney already has nuclear power plant

One Orlando paper says Disney could build a nuclear plant. We say they already have.

WALT DISNEY WORLD, FL — The Orlando Sentinel reported Thursday that current Florida law gives the Disney Company the right to build a nuclear power plant. But Uncle Walt’s Insider can report (and is) that Disney already has a nuclear power plant. And we found out the old-fashioned way: we asked.

Go-Away Green

“Yeah, it’s been there for decades,” says Disney (the company) spokesperson Jun Disney (no relation). “It’s easy to see from the Kilimanjaro Safari, if you know where to look. We just painted it Go-Away Green, and then positioned the animals on the Safari so you’re always looking away from it.”

As it turns out, much of the Animal Kingdom park runs on nuclear power.

“Absolutely, yes,” Disney (no relation) continues. “It’s one of the secrets of Disney magic. We had all of that open space to the north, and a lot of the animals on the Safari are animatronic, so they’re a big power draw. And it’s also great for the handful animals that are real, because they now glow in the dark. That’s what makes the nighttime Safari rides so special!”

More to come?

With the addition of the glowing nuclear-powered bioluminescence of Pandora: The World of Avatar, and the fusion-powered barges in Rivers of Light, the plant is now running near its capacity.

“We’re considering building a second plant,” Disney (no relation) says, “and we may have to hurry, after that newspaper article. Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is going to draw a lot of power!”
