The following article, Disney World Stops Announcing ‘Ladies and Gentlemen’ Because its too ‘Gendered’, was first published on Flag And Cross.
Woke Disney World in Orlando, Florida, has stopped saying “ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls,” because it is too “gendered” and not “sensitive” enough to “other” genders.
Saying it is a place that is “where everyone is welcome,” Disney World has axed its longtime announcement, Business Insider reported.
Instead of the “Good evening, ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, dreamers of all ages” the new introduction heard staring last year 2020 is, “Good evening, dreamers of all ages,” employees told the Insider.
Employees were told of the new intro at a recent “cast member” meeting.

Disney refused to comment on the change but has noted that it has been changing its park experiences to include “inclusivity.”
For instance, Disney has said that one way it’s improving “inclusivity” is providing “greater flexibility with respect to forms of personal expression” of cast members in its musicals and shows “surrounding gender-inclusive hairstyles, jewelry, nail styles, and costume choices; and allowing appropriate visible tattoos.”
“The world is changing, and we will change with it, and continue to be a source of joy and inspiration for all the world,” a letter telling employees of the possible changes said.
Business Insider added:
In June 2020, Disney announced that it would turn its Splash Mountain attraction at its US theme parks into “Princess and the Frog”-themed rides.
The update was announced shortly after an online petition was created with the goal of encouraging Disney to ditch the ride’s music and characters from “Song of the South,” a 1946 Disney film that’s been widely criticized for its racist plot and imagery.
The company also announced in January that it’d be removing racially insensitive scenes from its classic Jungle Cruise rides.
Once again, the radical gay agenda takes precedent over everything else.
