    Fun Character Secrets!

    When I went to DisneyWorld recently, I noticed some non-cartoon "characters" around the park. In Tommorowland, there was a talking trashcan that tried to make it's way up the escalator/ramp. It was very funny and cute. Also, in Animal Kingdom there was a talking palm tree that was very cute. There is also a vine lady that we saw inside the AK. She was really cool.

    Have you seen any of these? What were your experiences with them? Are there any more fun characters like this around the parks? Where are the people that control them stationed?

    The talking trash can is "Push", the palm tree is "Wes Palm" and the vine lady is "DeVine." They are great fun to interact with!

    I've also seen a robot and a trash can in Epcot.

    People controlling them? Nope, Disney magic

    How about the talking fountains at Epcot? I looked for them last week but couldn't remember exactly where they were. Are those still around?

    We did get to see Wes Palm at AK though! Little kids, including mine were having lots of fun poking at it and then would run away and scream when it'd go towards them.

    I've seen the fellow who controls the trash can...i think i have a pic of him somewhere - i'll try to get it up - he stands pretty close by but he is dressed like a tourist so he blends in...I love watching the little ones interact with him

    I love the talking fountains. There was one outside the bathrooms across from the area between the land and Imagination pavillions, but i dont know if it is still there. I caught my friend off guard last year with this one, but when i told my family they should drink from that fountain because it would talk to them, it didnt talk back at all. It might have just been off for awhile because something was wrong, but it was bad timing cuz my family was wondering why i heard drinking fountains that would talk to me, something related to hearing voices in my head? But those were cool cuz they would say things like "leave some water for the fish"

    T.Rex and Roxie walk around Dinoland in AK a lot. They're Chester and Hester's kids in costume to perform for you! Roxie is green and loves being a dancing diva, so if you see her and her big red lips, strike a pose! T.Rex is Roxie's brother. He's blue and has dreams of being a rockstar someday. If you see him, don't be shy to air guitar and rock out with him! They are atmosphere characters, much like Push and Wes Palm.

    What about Lucky the Dinosaur in AK that walks freely around with its handler? I at least think its name is Lucky.

    Another line I remember was "next time, try it with a twist of lime" and of course the toilet flushing sounds.

    I love Push! I have seen all three (Push, Wes Plam and Devine) but Push is my favorite. I like the talking fountains too. The one I found was just outside of the MouseGears store right next to the fountain.

    I pick out the guy controlling him every time.
    He usually has one hand in a messenger bag (w/ a park map sticking out of it)
    and his sleeve up to his mouth (where the microphone is)
