In order to represent Florida residents and other Disney employees who, in his opinion, disagree with the WOKE mob, Republican and former Disney employee Jose Castillo is running for the US House of Representatives in Florida.
Castillo is in the news for defending a well-liked Disney mascot who he claims is being replaced by a new progressive, WOKE, and gender-neutral character that will communicate with the company’s youngest customers and park visitors.
Castillo spoke to the media in March to provide his thoughts on Disney’s forceful response against HB 1557. While still working for Disney at the time, he asserted that the “silent majority” of the company’s employees backed the legislation, despite corporate offices paying attention to the vocal minority.
In line with HB 1557, “classroom instruction on sexual orientation or gender identity by school officials or third parties may not occur in kindergarten through grade three or in a manner that is not age appropriate or developmentally suitable for students.”
Disney also made it known that they were not at all pleased with the law.
Then, Castillo said to Fox News that “Disney is drifting far away from the ideals that made this corporation the household name” globally.
And Castillo, who is no longer employed by Disney, is using the chance to criticize the company once more. Disney isn’t done with their campaign for new Woke values at their amusement parks.
The new gender-neutral motif will be introduced in the Bibbidi Boppidi Boutiques at Walt Disney World in Florida and Disneyland in California on August 25, claims Castillo.
The services offered by the shop are now described by Disney as “offers magical makeovers to transform Guests (ages 3 to 12) into young princesses and knights, at the Disneyland Resort”.”
“Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique is Disney’s own boutique for guests ages 3 to 12 years old. “Magical Makeovers” are provided by Fairy Godmothers-in-Training who turn guests into royal princesses or gallant knights,” according to a Disney blog post from before the gender change proposal was made public.
Instead of being referred to as “Fairy Godmothers in Training,” cast members at the Bibbidi Boppidi Boutiques at Walt Disney World in Florida and Disneyland in California will now be named “Fairy Godmother’s Apprentices.”

According to Disney Fandom: “The Fairy Godmother is a supporting character in Disney’s 1950 animated feature film, Cinderella. The physical embodiment of hope, she is a kindly fairy that is devoted to making dreams come true for the pure-hearted and noble—an act made possible by proclaiming the magic words, “bibbidi-bobbidi-boo.”
