Monday's Memory: Push the Trashcan at Magic Kingdom

On our last trip, I had the pleasure of "meeting" Push the Talking Trashcan for the first time!  I had seen him from a distance before, but had never been able to interact with him.  For those of you who don't know who "Push" is, he's a trashcan in Tomorrowland at the Magic Kingdom that can hold your trash, move around and have conversations with guests in real time!  In the picture below, Push (with the blue push flap) had just said, "AHH!!  My mom and dad!" Talking to the two "real," stationary trashcans outside of Mickey's Startraders!

The funniest part of watching "Push" is seeing guests interact with and be surprised by him!  Many times he will catch the adults off guard and you'll see an awesome reaction by the adults, but the best is seeing the kids try to figure it all out!  C-man had the best time chasing him around!  In the first picture, you can see he was trying to see if someone was in the trashcan.  Then Push heard me call C-man by name and Push yelled out his name!  This totally blew C-man's mind, as you can see in the right hand picture!  

I've heard there is another "Push" at Epcot in Futureworld, but I have not experienced him.  Other Hidden Gems at Walt Disney World include Pipa, Wes Palm and DiVine.  "Pipa the Recycling Bin" is at Rafiki's Planetwatch and she encourages guests to recycle and "Wes Palm," the talking palm tree, is at Animal Kingdom in the Oasis area.  I've read it's best to find him early in the morning before 11:30am.   DiVine, at Animal Kingdom,  is a woman dressed as ivy who walks on stilts and blends in with the foliage.  My goal is to experience all of these unique "friends!"

Have you seen or interacted with any of these "characters?"

  8. This is cool, I've never seen Push before. I have seen DiVine, but I wish I had more time to stop and watch. The kids were on a mission! I've also seen the custodial team drawing Mickey on the ground, but again, we were on a mission so I couldn't stay until he was done.
