Fans Hilariously React to Disney Executive’s Mistake Correction

Mistakes happen. But, when you’re the brand new Senior Executive Vice President and Chief Corporate Affairs Officer of The Walt Disney Company… well, a mistake isn’t easily forgotten. And when trying to correct that mistake, things tend to get even more befuddled.

On February 22, 2022, Disney Executive Geoff Morrell took to Twitter and mistakenly leaked the grand opening of Walt Disney World Resort’s highly-anticipated roller coaster attraction, Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind. He quickly removed the tweet but of course, screenshots of it were everywhere across Disney fandom.

In the initial tweet pictured above, Morrell noted “Check it out starting Memorial Day weekend!” This tweet was pulled and then reposted with a new tweet (below) that says, “Coming Soon!”

The former BP Executive and Pentagon Department of Defense spokesperson has only recently become a Disney Executive, so maybe he didn’t know the process? Either way, fans aren’t letting it slide.

While we actually feel bad for the guy, the comments to the reposted tweet are rather comical. To the comments…

Of course, enter Disney CEO Bob Chapek into the discussion.

Yes, we’ve all been there!

What’s a mistake without a few GIFs to hilariously follow it up.

A little Marvel Cinematic Universal Agatha Harkness wink always brightens the moment.

This will be difficult. Disney fans never forget anything.

No take-backs! Seriously, Disney, don’t take back our Memorial Day weekend hopes.

Yes, Iron Man, of course, we noticed.

Even a BP pun made it into the comments!

Well, regardless of what Disney decides to do or not do with the Geoff Morrell mistake, we’re sure he’s hearing it from his fellow Disney Cast Members.

In the meantime, we’re keeping our fingers crossed that Memorial Day Weekend will be the actual grand opening for EPCOT’s Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind. Keep your head up Morrell!

About Mike and Jamie Sylvester

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and RunDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 16 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
