Maybe just maybe social media if fulfilling this role now.

When did DeJoy get a job at Disney?

This is all about suppressing the animated character vote.

It's a link to a Disney fan-site, not The New York Times

Relax

Will they replace them with gender-neutral boxes?

And it's not like there's that much to say about it. There have been mailboxes on Main Street USA for people to send postcards back home. Most folks walked right by them without realizing they were there or that they were functional. Or nowadays, what a postcard is. They have been removed, likely for COVID precautions.

That's all there is to say about it. I suppose somebody could try to get an official word from a public affairs office, but it's only going to confirm what people can clearly see. It's not like Disney is going to say "Well, the USPS is taking farking forever to move any mail right now, so we're getting rid of them because the intelligensia is using mail in ballots to give power back to the Deep State so the Bilderbergs can continue gaining wealth and imposing Agenda 21."

Remember post 9-11 when post boxes, bus lockers, and trash cans practically went extinct in America?

Didn't say removing a mailbox over COVID was smart or worthwhile. I've seen a bunch of companies claiming "COVID precautions" when the crap they're doing has absolutely nothing to do with it.

It actually does make sense.  Since the postboxes in the parks actually are Disney property, Disney collects the mail and ferries it to a local post office.  Which costs them labor.
With the advent of cellphones, people aren't buying postcards.  My guess is less than 1% of the level they were 25 years ago.
Same thing with payphones.

Why?  Why have they been removed? I mean why even write an article if you're not even going to address that basic journalistic question
