Talking Mickey

I Just had to post that I saw Talking Mickey Yesterday at the Magic Kingdom

I was with my cousin, who has never been too the magic kingdom except for 2 days earlier for MNSSHP
We decided to visited Mickey before we left to go home
while we were waiting to go into the room with MM, a cast member came out and asked us if it was ok to video are visit for internal use only. Well I didn't think too much of it. We go in and I was a little sad because it was just Mickey and not Minnie too, then he started talking. I got really excited
I videoed the family in front of us, and texted my husband, who was so jealous
I told Mickey it was my cousin's birthday and and had everyone in line wish her a happy birthday.
SO COOL too be a part of

Very cool!

I've seen video of Talking Mickey at Disneyland good to know he is coming to MK at some point too!

I've seen video a year or so ago of talking Mickey and just about cried. It's amazing too I haven't the slightest idea how they do it and I don't know if I want to know. I mean Mickey is standing there talking and blinking, it sounds creepy but he looks real! Just so cool! It's enough to want to take a trip just to meet him myself. I always make sure to meet Mickey when I go to any Disney park, he is still the idol of my childhood!

That's a really special happening Pam. I'm hoping that Disney can perfect this technology and deploy it widely. Imagine being able to talk to Mickey!

I hope this happens more and more often soon! As my son gets older I know the question of why Mickey doesn't talk will be coming, I dream for the day when he walks up to Mickey and says hi Mickey and Mickey answers back Hi Evan!

We did it Disneyland, in the knowledge that most of the people I talked to thought it would be a financial disaster - closed and forgotten within the first year. Walt Disney

Well...for anyone that is interested here's a patent Disney filed back in 1994 with at least an try at this technology.I'm sure they have made a few improvement, but still a very interesting read.
