Stephen Colbert Calls Out Disney on ‘The Late Show’ For Declining Service Due to Lack of Parking Lot Trams

Stephen Colbert, comedian and host of “The Late Show,” made a dig at Disney last night during a short segment about the effect of COVID on the service economy. He specifically noted the fact that Walt Disney World reopened more than a year ago, but the parking lot tram service has yet to resume.

Citing an article from NPR, Colbert highlighted the increased demand on guests who may have to walk long distances to reach the theme park entrance.


In typical late-night talk show fashion, Colbert takes the opportunity to crack a joke. He jests that Disney has turned the parking lot walk into an attraction called “Simba’s Boiling Asphalt Stroll.”
