    (I work at Walt Disney World.)

    Me: “Hello, sir, how can I help you?”

    Guest: “Yeah, is Walt Disney going to be in the afternoon parade?”

    (After a short silence, I realize he’s not kidding.)

    Me: “Sir, I’m sorry but… Walt Disney died in 1966.”

    Guest: “What!? Then is his brother in the parade?”

    Me: “No, sir, his brother is dead, too.”

    Guest: “Then one of his sons?”

    Me: “Walt didn’t have any sons, sir.”

    Guest: “Well then, who’s head of the company?”

    Me: “Bob Iger, sir.”

    Guest: “…then why isn’t it called Bob Iger World?”
    I don't know who is dumber......the guest or the cast member. In every day parade I have seen, there is a "Walt Disney" float in the parade where a face actor portraying him sits at an easel painting drawing or painting.

    Add me to the list, I didn't know that there was a Walt Disney float, but then I've never watched the day parade. I'll have to take notice next time I'm there during the day.

    I'm not 100 percent but it seems the float depicting Disney is not in any parade in the MK currently at least its not in the front of either parade I viewed on recent online visitor videos or a cursory review.

    Also, it appears as if the parade is about to be revamped soon to the Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade with new floats or some new floats to represent the new Fantasy Land Riveting.

    A report in a recent Orlando article on the new parade also reviewed with pics of the one you posted of the Walt float to be in an older parade.

    The float was used daily in the Share a Dream Come true parade from 2001 until 2006, and then in the DIsney Dream Come True Parade from 2006 until 2009. Those were the two parades it was in, i remember waving to him everyday at PAC when i was a CM

    Another thing I can not believe I that in two years I will be moving done to Orlando. This is the scariest thought ever.


    Ahhh I am growing up to fast.

    A lot of disengaged guests in that photo! I saw that base in either DHS or AK parade the past year, now trying to remember which.
