You know that once you finish moving, you are not allowed to assert or imply that that your "trip" was "ruined."

They say the longest trip begins with a single step. Presumably that's true for the shortest trip as well.

I am sad that Push will be gone. Push was a charming edition to Tomorrowland.

It was hilarious to watch the kids stick their heads in to see where that voice was coming from.

I hope that something better entertainment wise is coming but I will believe it when I see it.

At least I can continue to enjoy him on youtube.

I enjoyed watching kids interact with Push - it was cute and a nice break for me.

It won't ruin my trips but it's a shame that Disney is getting rid of yet another small piece of magic in the parks.

Think of all the children that didn't get to laugh, run around, try to figure it out.

Someday Disney may be just a mere shadow of what it once was. That would be sad.

I will miss Push. My grandchildren always had a great time when they got to see Push.
I agree with Kathy. At Disneyland, besides Push, there was Lagniappe, who was a mime that rode a unicycle in New Orleans Square. He made a lot of people smile, and I still miss seeing him, though it's been years. Also, I would stop to watch Push interact with guests or characters, and we used to have Lady Devine at California Adventure. My trips were definitely enhanced by watching these characters.

Hoping for a Push 2.0

Hoping as someone mentioned earlier that he will be upgraded to interace with the MB, otherwise it will be sad to lose that lil' piece of Magic from the MK. I love the attraction rides but I also love all the little bits of things I can see or do without the hassel of a line.

Good choice of words. I agree that they are enhancements so no it won't be a deal breaker for me but clearly this is yet another sign of things to come. Aren't the little things what makes Disney so special for all of us? Unique experiences, attention to detail etc.?

It sounds like a contract dispute from what I've read since it's contracted out? Not sure the validity.

To be honest...as a PUSH lover I would be alright with this. Not a bad idea.

I think it would be cool if PUSH was upgraded like someone mentioned to a 2.0 that was able to interact with the Magic Bands....That would enhance the experience.....maybe we are overreacting and they are just refurbishing PUSH I'm going to try and be hopeful!..........

Honestly, IMO if they were just upgrading him Disney would have just said that to avoid this outcry from fans.

I really wonder who is next to get the ax. Mayor of Main Street? Fire Chief? Piano Players at Casey's? Voices of Liberty? All of these players are key to keeping the Magic in the World. Disney needs to take a hard look at these groups before they make a decision.

I don't mind when Disney removes little stuff like this. The problem I have is they never tell us if they are going to replace it with something else. It's almost like budget cutting through attrition. I know customers (guests) really don't have the right to know this information, but it's almost like we should know because we are more than just guests; we are their fans and most loyal customers. That's where things get fuzzy with Disney and their guests.....It's the communication that comes out of Disney; which, at times seems very cryptic. For example, you are removing Push. Why can't you tell us why you are removing Push? What's the big secret? Just tell us and if you know what you're going to replace Push with tell us that too. It's not so much Disney's decision to remove small attractions it's their communication. Just my 2 cents.

FWIW, I have not been able to locate PUSH since 2010. One of those things I seem to miss. Mainly, because Tomorrowland really needs a makeover.
