Super-fan rides Splash Mtn with ‘Trump 2020’ sign, remains undaunted when Disney World lays down the law

A Disney World pass-holder found himself banned from the theme park after he held up a “Trump 2020” sign while on a ride.

Dion Cini was banned from all “Disney World properties” after he rode down Splash Mountain with a “Trump 2020” sign and a “Keep America Great” sign on Expedition Everest, WFTV reported.

Cini shared the news on his Facebook page last week.

But this isn’t the first time Cini has had to relinquish his Disney World privileges.

His pass was taken away in September after unfurling a giant Trump reelection banner over the train depot in Magic Kingdom’s Main Street USA area, a stunt that he said was worth it even though he lost his pass after 24 years.

He was allowed to re-enter the parks however,with the promise that he would not hang banners with the intent to “incite crowds.”

“They never mentioned the fact that there was some kind of safety issue on the ride. That I was holding up a sign and I shouldn’t be doing that,” Cini told WFTV on Monday.

Disney rules do not allow “unauthorized events, demonstrations or speeches, or the usage of any flag, banner or sign for commercial purposes, or to incite a crowd.”

“And I wanted to actually abide by their rules, and not hold up a flag to incite a crowd, but I kind of wanted to test them,” Cini said. “I just really wanted to find out whether or not it had to do with unfurling a flag, or what was written on the flag.”

Cini’s love for Trump has frequently put him in the middle of controversy as the former Marine who lives in New York’s Upper West Side regularly rides up and down the Hudson River in a boat with a flag that reads “Trump 2020,” according to the Orlando Sentinel.

He even held a “one-man rally” in front of New York’s Trump Tower last month.

There’s no telling if Disney World will have another change of heart after banning Cini from all Walt Disney World properties, including theme parks, water parks, resorts and Disney Springs. But that’s not slowing down the Trump fan, as he revealed to WFTV that he will soon be unfurling a bigger 50-foot wide flag somewhere in the country next week.
