    I still can't figure this out!

    Mickey Tests Some Magic Words at Walt Disney World - YouTube

    I still can't figure out how Disney does this... But, some part of me doesn't really want to know. This is one of the most magical and amazing things that the Imagineers have ever come up with. I'd put this up there with Bob Gurr's technological innovation inside Abraham Lincoln.

    So lovely.
    I can't wait till I have a child of my own that I can bring to Disney to have a conversation with Mickey.

    I think this is the greatest thing, this is what it's all about, being able to talk with Mickey instead of getting just a nod, I hope that soon all the fav five can talk as well, that would be really great.

    Re: I still can't figure this out!

    I was thinking about this a little more from a tech perspective - I'm guessing they have also added onboard video for Mickey. That would make so much sense they must either be doing it or actively planning to do it.

    I'm kind of thinking they'll keep it limited to the controlled greets, but it's a no-brainer to roll this out. People will go wild over it.

    Creeps me out a bit. Plus, the very LAST thing we need is another reason for the lines to slow down. As it is, families of seven kids, each with their own autograph book, plus too many pictures because everyone but little Johnny wasn't looking at the camera, the line can take forever. Now we want to encourage conversations????

    That's really neat. I'd think they would have to say no autographs or posed pictures for this until the novelty wears off, if ever. You can take pictures while they interact, but no standing still and "Cheese"...ooops, wait, one more...

    Holy cow, man, you are the BIGGEST downer. And remember, I'm just posting my opinion, so it's okay.
