    THAT IS AWESOME! The characters really come to life. I wonder how the heads work and how much more weight it adds? Can't wait to check that out in April.

    That is AWESOME. I wonder if they are using remote signals that would allow them to use it in other shows and character meet and greets. That would add quite a bit of bulk to the heads though. Disney still never fails to amaze me. Bring on the future!

    Very cool. I have always loved the characters the way they are and think the CMs do a wonderful job of expressing themselves without moving mouths and eyes, but I think this will broaden their performances even more.
