Walt Disney World is billed as “The Most Magical Place On Earth,” but for one brief moment this week, it became the place to “Make America Great Again.”
A guest smuggled a large banner into the Magic Kingdom in Florida, that read, “Re-Elect Trump Keep America Great 2020,” which he then hung outside the Main Street Railroad Station, according to Circa.
A photo of the incident was shared on Instagram.
The caption read: “Please Check your bags for selfie sticks and political banners. They are not allowed in the Magic Kingdom.”
“People stopped and stared, and a cast member at the park asked the man to take the banner down,” the website reported.
A social media user shared a photo of the banner on Twitter.
“Magic Kingdom adding new decor and changing the party name to Mickey’s Super Scary Halloween Party,” the caption sarcastically noted.

A New York man identified by Newsweek as Dion Cini said he was behind the banner.
A longtime Trump supporter, Cini said he was looking for a “viral effect” in showing support for President Trump.
“There were security guards watching me,” he told Newsweek. “If they wanted me, they could have grabbed me. Now, if they do come after me or ban me, it will be for political reasons, not policy.”
