The question over the last week has been: “Will he be returning or won’t he?” We now know the answer. PUSH the Talking Trash Can will no longer appear in Tomorrowland at the Magic Kingdom. His last day working was Saturday, February 8.
PUSH was an animatronic trash can who interacted with guests by talking with them, joking with them, and dancing with them. He was absolutely a fan favorite attraction.
The rumors started late last week. First, we heard he was going away forever, then we heard from the Orlando Sentinel that he was reported to be staying, but it’s official now that the roving trash can is extinct.
It appears that the reason behind the removal is that the contract for the talking trash can act had expired. PUSH had been around for 19 years.
There are no current plans to introduce a similar show back into the park. Disney is advising guests to instead take part in the #INCREDIBLESsuperdanceparty at the Rockettower Plaza Stage.
