Be A Pirate With Interactive Mickey Mouse

A Few lucky guests each day get to spend special time with Mickey when he is well rested and wanting to be a bit chatty. The day we went Mickey had some pirate fun with our kids. He was very interactive and actually answered questions the children asked. This in no way was a pre-recorded script.

Say Arrr With Interactive Pirate Mickey MouseThis beta run of interactive Mickey Mouse has been going on for several months and is only available on Main Street U.S.A. at the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World during random periods.

From talking to a Cast Member, interactive Mickey Mouse has some very special friends over at Main Gate West, by Animal Kingdom, giving him a helping hand coming out of his shell.

This technology is not completely new as Mickey Mouse has been using facial expressions in shows for several years, but this new technology allows him to interact with the children on the fly and not using a pre-recorded script.

I see this beta as a first step, but I would guess that they are a long way off from making this happen on a regular basis as the technology needs too much manpower and technology to mass deploy across the parks.

The only problem now is that every time the kids see Mickey they want him to talk.

Over the last few years we have been trying to about creating a website that is both fun for us, but has interest for the reader. We thought long and hard, but everything we thought of was not long term interesting to us. We needed something we could love and bring life to it, that is when it hit us, we should start a website about Disney. We knew though that there were many websites out there that already touched on many Disney subjects, we needed something to be different. It dawned on us while building the website that our love of runDisney could be combined with our excitement for all other things Disney to bring to life not only a resource for those who run Disney, but to Disney fans alike. We wanted to bring a bit of magic, and we hope you hang on for the ride as we explore the magical world of Disney World .
