    Hi Kristen, Have you had any opportunity to ask a Disney representative if Woody and Jessie really fall down if someone yells "Here comes Andy?" What about Dug, does he really point if someone yells "Squirrel?" I would hate to spread a

    Hi Raymond!  Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  As a matter of fact, I just had this discussion with a Disney Cast Member very recently, and this is what I was able to confirm:  Disney loves to make Magical Moments happen randomly for families visiting Walt Disney World and it's theme parks.  One time, there was a family who did in fact call out "Andy's coming" while visiting Woody & Jessie.  Both characters spontaneously dropped to the ground and became still.  Of course, the family involved loved it, and someone happened to be filming and put it on You Tube.  This became a viral sensation and now of course, everyone wants the same thing to happen to them.  However, like all Magical Moments, they usually are a one-time only event, and due to the logistics of Woody & Jessie falling to the ground every time someone calls out "Andy's coming!", it just wouldn't be possible, or safe, for them to do so. So unfortunately the answer to your first question is no.  

    However, I do have a more positive answer for your second question regarding Dug; he may in fact point and stare straight ahead if you mention "Squirrel" to him, so that may be a fun one to try in the future.

    Thanks again for your question Raymond, and I hope this helps to clarify how those fun and mysterious Magical Moments occur at Walt Disney World.  Please come back to the Moms Panel and ask me any other questions you may have - it would be my pleasure to answer them for you!  Have a magical day!
