Woke Disney: What in the Name of Jiminy Cricket Is Happening?

Disney World has canceled Christmas.

"Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party," an extremely popular Yuletide tradition, is going to be rebranded. Instead, the Magic Kingdom will host a nighttime show.

The new "don't call it Christmas" event is called "Disney Very Merriest After Hours" — a generic, holiday-themed celebration.

Whoever came up with that idea deserves a lump of coal in their Christmas stocking.

Disney did not provide an explanation for the change, but in recent days the woke imagineers at the Magic Kingdom have made national headlines by culturally cleansing many popular rides.

Among the "offensive rides" that have been updated are "Pirates of the Caribbean" and Splash Mountain — a ride inspired by "Song of the South." It also plans to update the "Jungle Cruise" over concerns about the depictions of natives.

There was even controversy surrounding Prince Charming's life-saving kiss that awakened Snow White from her slumber. The #MeToo crowd took issue with the 'unwelcomed' smooch.

Disney also eliminated the words "ladies and gentlemen" and "boys and girls" from recorded greetings at its theme parks.

In April Disney announced it was adding "inclusion" as a key component of its customer service. "We want our guests to see their own backgrounds and traditions reflected in the stories, experiences and products they encounter in their interactions with Disney," the company said.

The original introduction included, "Good evening, ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, dreamers of all ages." Now, the greeting is "Good evening, dreamers of all ages."

And how can we forget that Disney wanted its white staffers to complete a "white privilege" training workshop? What in the name of Jiminy Cricket is going on?

Disney fans are beyond outraged over the Cancel Christmas news, accusing the Magic Kingdom of appeasing critics.

"We can only believe that Disney is continuing to follow the stupidity already shown in changing cast costumes so as not to offend, or erasing all gender in their traditional welcome and greeting that included both boys and girls," one angry fan wrote on Facebook.

"Disney, I have been your biggest Mouseketeer fan for 46 years but you are losing many of us who actually keep your business going while you try to appeal to critics and the habitually offended. Get it together or just shut down completely, because you will NEVER make those kinds of people happy."

Another Mouseketeer noted, "I’m all for equality and respecting people’s differences, but now they’re taking away cherished traditions from the mainstream in the name of extreme political correctness."

It is not exactly clear what’s going to happen during Disney World’s after hours show. Will there be Christmas trees? What about wreaths or a Nativity scene? How about the beloved candlelight processional?

We simply do not know the extent of the cultural cleansing of Disney's "holiday" celebration, but don't be surprised if it lands somebody on Santa’s naughty list.

"Our Daily Biscuit" — now topping the book charts. The Biscuit book is now the number one Christian inspirational book in the nation. You can order a copy right now at ToddStarnes.com.
