Seriously. Andy isn’t the owner of the toys, Bonnie is. And they walk around every day, and people KNOW they’re toys that can move. They’re not going to stop talking to that family they’re with just to drop when they know Andy isn’t coming.
But if you’re good at your job, you do. Or did. It’s happened, from what i’ve seen.
‘But if you’re good at your job, you do.’
Wow, um, NO. Regardless of whether or not they ‘drop’, every character is flawless in their role.
Consider reasons why Disney may not want them to do this. First and foremost, safety. Those costumes are only going to cushion so much. Imagine if the performers fell incorrectly and injured themselves, or someone else.
Second, there is no reason for their dropping. As the caption states, these toys are surrounded by people all day, every day. While Andy and Bonnie are their owners, and it makes sense that the toys would want to be immobile if they think they’d appear, they know that people around them know what and who they are. Dropping wouldn’t make much sense.
Lastly, just because it’s happened doesn’t mean it will, or should again. Last I checked, World of Motion happened. Figment and Dreamfinder as walk-around characters happened. Magic Kingdom as a dry park happened. But none of those attractions/operations are around today. The parks change. Their policies change. Don’t hold Disney to a standard/expectation from years ago and then become defensive when they explain that things are different now.
I just want to add that it is indeed a safety hazard. Both for the character’s friend and the character themselves. They’re not supposed to sit down at all.
