After a year of waiting we got good news from the Disney Parks Blog yesterday…
Well it didn’t take long for this to happen, in fact I would say over a week is longer than I would have thought. Of course I’m talking about someone disrupting the Hall of Presidents after the new Donald Trump animatronic was installed just 9 days ago. A man in the audience started yelling “Lock him up” over and over again once the Donald Trump animatronic started speaking, and continued as he gave his speech.
Here is a video posted to YouTube in which you hear the guest yelling: “Lock him up”:
Of course you knew someone getting rowdy was bound to happen over all the controversy about the Donald Trump animatronic going into the Hall of Presidents, it was the biggest Disney story of 2017, it was only a matter of time. Disney foresaw occasions like this and even have security guards placed in the Hall of Presidents to oust rowdy guests in such events.
It appears that we found the man yelling during the show and he goes by the Twitter handle: @JayMalsky. He posted his own video to his account showing the situation:

It appears he’d been planning this for some time as he posted a week ago his intentions to go to the Hall of Presidents and throw stuff at the Trump Animatronic:
Will be in Disney next week and def going to the #HallOfPresidents on my last day in the park. Taking suggestions on what to throw at Trump.

We still aren’t sure what happened to him after the incident, and what Disney’s reaction was or if he was thrown out of the attraction. We do plainly hear someone in the crowd yelling back at him: “He’s not real!”, and it seems that there is more activity at the end of the video.
The question is now what should Disney do if more occurrences of this nature happen over time? With so many people angry with the president, it’s inevitable that more and more rowdy guests are sure to start trouble. I personally think no matter where you stand politically, guests and families come to Walt Disney World to enjoy their time off and shouldn’t have to deal with events like this one. Disney should make it clear to all guests that anyone causing a disturbance will be kicked out of the attraction and the Magic Kingdom, period.
How do you think Disney should handle them?
We’ll keep you updated as soon as we learn more about what happened…
I want to know what you think about the yelling in the Hall of Presidents. What steps should Disney take as more occurrences happen? Let us know in the comments section below!
