Disney Imagineers Navigate Sexual Tension in Queer Musical Spoof

Jack Plotnick

Jack Plotnick created a wonderfully gay reimagining of Walt Disney's Wonderful World of Color.

Jack Plotnick created a wonderfully gay reimagining of Walt Disney's Wonderful World of Color, the anthology series from the 1960s.

The gay multihyphenate -- known for acting in Gods and Monsters and directing Space Station 76 -- donned drag to portray one of the creatives working for Disney in the '60s.

In the new YouTube spoof, which is spliced with actual footage from a Wonderful World of Color episode, Walt Disney is showing off a model of Disneyland's Plaza Restaurant. Plotnick portrays the painter of the model figurines, who harbors a crush of the animation legend.

At one point, Plotnick's character breaks into song -- "I'm Wishing" from Snow White -- and in pure Disney fashion, finds herself magically transported into the model.

There, she engages in a duet with one of the restaurant workers at the Plaza, also played by Plotnick, who offers her a tray of chicken. The otherworldly sequence ends with a declaration of affection from another coworker, who is spurned.

The video is the latest in a series helmed by Plotnick, with assistance from Jim Hansen and Rene Ruiz, which spoofs Wonderful World of Color and the workplace of the Imagineers, the legendary creators of rides and experiences in the Disney parks. Previously, Plotnick donned a wig to portray beloved artist Mary Blair to discuss the creation of the Small World ride. Other skits focus on the Haunted Mansion and Pirates of the Caribbean attractions.

Watch the videos below, starting with the Plaza Restaurant.
