Sad news for fans of Walt Disney World. The Honorable Mayor of Main Street USA, Christopher George Weaver, passed away on Christmas Eve. He was aged 84.
Mayor Weaver is perhaps best known to Disney World visitors as the gentleman who oversaw the (now defunct) Welcome Show at the Magic Kingdom every morning.
Weaver’s distinguished performing career spanned 60 years, with 26 of them spent at Disney.
Mayor Weaver’s passing has sent ripples through the Disney fan community, with many posting remembrances and anecdotes on social media.
Sad to hear of the passing of Main Street, USA’s Mayor George Weaver. He always greeted me and every guest with a smile on his face, was an exceptional Cast Member, and I’m sure made Walt proud. Main Street don’t be the same without you. pic.twitter.com/QZVpUEw2mF
