VIDEO: New DJ Making Closing Announcements from Main Street Train Station at Magic Kingdom, ‘Kiss Goodnight’ Has Yet to Return

When nighttime spectaculars returned to the Magic Kingdom, many fans had hoped to see the “Kiss Goodnight,” the closing announcement and changing castle lights, return as well. It did not, but now Disney has added a new way to say goodbye with an uncostumed DJ making announcements from atop the Main Street Train Station.

See the DJ in the video below from Twitter user @MickeyViews.

The DJ also plays music, such as “Party in the U.S.A.” by Miley Cyrus or remixed versions of Disney music. He reportedly reads the closing announcements, including transportation directions from a paper over a microphone. The DJ was present at least two nights in the past week; neither of which had private events or Disney After Hours Boo Bash.

This is certainly a change of pace for Disney. The “Kiss Goodnight” added a little magic to the end of the day; how will guests feel about the new DJ?

  1. You don’t have to go home but you can’t stay here! Finish up that dole whip and head for the exits!

  2. OMG They have literally lost their minds. Are you kidding me? Disney wake up!!!! There is NOTHING magical about someone screaming at you on a loud speaker as you’re leaving. We’re not at the local fair. Honestly, this is now becoming a joke.

  3. well, the new closing announcements seems lame, guess Walt Disney World has to bring back ALL the offerings that were temporarily closed on 2022

  4. Just stop already Disney! I’m so over all this. Bring back “Kiss Goodnight” and do away with the new Genie plus.

  5. This is an embarrassment to the strength of the Disney brand. I may not love the idea of Genie+ but I can at least understand it. Premium experience = premium pricing. This, however, is cheap, tacky and seriously makes me want to cancel an upcoming trip so I don’t ruin my past experiences of Disney being truly magical.

  6. We were there last night and thought it was very weird and just a terrible way to exit the park…like HEA was an amazing end to the day/evening and then there was that weirdness to leave to😒 just leave the rides open for a little to let the crowd go or just play peaceful music like they always do, not whatever that awful noise of the DJ was 🤦🏻‍♀️

  7. What the hell?! This seems like something cheap you would expect leaving a local county fair or something. Every decision Disney has made lately seems to be worse and worse. I don’t even know what else to say right now…….

  8. Absolute garbage. Leaving main street is supposed to be magical, relaxing, and peaceful. At least when it’s not incredibly busy. And an uncostumed CM in the park where show is the most important? Who decided this would be a good addition? We gave up the kiss goodnight for this???

  9. Ah, I know what they are going to do. If you want to see the magical Goodnight Kiss, you’ll have to pay for the extra priced event in order to experience it. Otherwise this is all you’ll get. Falls right in line with all the other things that we’re seeing from the current regime.

  10. I must say that the DJ was extremely annoying and a huge disappointment for me!!! He can be insulting. I also have been hearing lot of angry shouting by ‘cast members’ who are actually acting like angry employs. Hope some magic returns soon!!! Thank you

  11. Each day I can’t wait to see what Disney does that is even more stupid to top the previous day. And unfortunately I’m never disappointed.

  12. We were there and trying to figure out what the heck was going on. Now we know. Let’s just say it squashed any “magic” as we left the Magic Kingdom. Very annoying.

  13. What is going at Disney World, Magic Kingdom. Who is responsible for all this?
    Where is the special Magic going?
    We go every year( except the last two) for three weeks, loving this extra special magic feeling like a child again but this : No please

  14. Jesus Christ… This is not a cheap wedding reception. It’s freaking Magic Kingdom! What are they thinking?

  15. Seriously what happened to music of walts voice no need to yell at us like cattle at the fair.

  16. The absolute tackiest thing Disney could have done. Just play the magical Disney music as people are exiting the park!

  17. He was there on Saturday night. Yelling at people with strollers to use the street rather than the sidewalk. I was honestly confused and annoyed by the disruption. I usually would have been walking out to the “Happily Ever After” soundtrack that follows the fireworks. But I didn’t even notice where the voice was coming from. I figured it was some poor cast member in costume that they had forced into this job. The guy in the t shirt makes it even worse

  18. Hated it! Just some guy up there yelling for everyone to leave. And it didn’t help that everyone was funneled into the cattle shoots to get to the monorail. It was crazy! Nothing magical about it at all!
