Walt Disney World’s new gondola system has… too much character?
WALT DISNEY WORLD, FL — Just months from its projected opening, the Disney Skyliner and Spa gondola system has encountered a new snag. Rather than leave the vehicles wrapped as originally planned, they decided to decorate each ride vehicle with cartoon characters.
One problem: no one told the designers that they were limited just to Disney characters.
There’s variety, at least
Ride vehicles show characters from such non-Disney properties as Shrek, the Flintstones, H.R. Puff-n-stuff, Star Trek: the Animated Series, He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, Sesame Street, and for some reason, Chip and Joanna Gaines from Fixer Upper. [Ed.: We thought Chip Gaines was a Disney character.]
Disney (the company) spokesperson Jun Disney (no relation) had a brief response: “Oops.”
The opening of the gondola system is expected to be delayed for several additional months while new graphics are created.
UPDATE: There will be no delay after all! Disney (the company) has just solved the problem by buying all of the companies who own the previously non-Disney characters!
Wait, is the Anastasia gondola Disney or non-Disney? We can never remember. Comment below!
