Best At­trac­tion: Talk­ing Mickey


WDW Magazine - - Content - BY TRI­CIA KEIERLEBER

When you en­ter the Magic Kingdom, im­me­di­ately to the right on Main Street, U.S.A., you will find the Town Square The­ater. From park open­ing to clos­ing, you can meet the mouse that started it all, Mickey!

Lo­cated in­side the the­ater, guests of­ten don’t mind a wait, giv­ing them refuge from the harsh Florida weather. As you can imag­ine, this unique ex­pe­ri­ence is so un­for­get­table that Fast­pass+ is avail­able. While you are in the the­ater, you can also get hop over to meet Tin­ker Bell, or catch a de­li­cious meal at Tony’s Restau­rant. The the­ater also houses gift shop (af­ter meet­ing the char­ac­ters you will exit through it) and the Camera Cen­ter shop for all of your pho­tog­ra­phy needs and serv­ing as Dis­ney Pho­topass Head­quar­ters.

You will find steps lead­ing up to the the­ater, along­side a wheel­chair ac­ces­si­ble ramp to the right, (near the en­trance lo­cated just af­ter pass­ing un­der the train sta­tion).

Be sure to plan to meet this mag­i­cal, talk­ing Mickey on your next WDW va­ca­tion! It will surely be a talked about mem­ory for many years to come!

This is a very spe­cial meet-and-greet! Ma­gi­cian Mickey cer­tainly has magic up his sleeve and he knows how to us it! He is also the one and only talk­ing Mickey in the parks! That is right, he talks, and his eyes and mouth move as well. This fully in­ter­ac­tive, mag­i­cal meet-and-greet is one that guests of all ages will not want to miss. My fam­ily and I usu­ally plan to meet him a few times each trip be­cause he is so much fun! Pho­topass Pho­tog­ra­phers are there to cap­ture the magic, which leaves your hands free to get it all on video! I do not video nearly as much as I would like, but I al­ways re­mem­ber to record this ex­pe­ri­ence!

Our first meet­ing with the talk­ing Mickey was so mag­i­cal! My daugh­ter, Ann Marie was dressed as Aurora and Mickey asked her to dance! He took her hands and be­gan hum­ming “Once Upon a Dream” from Aurora’s movie Sleep­ing Beauty. That's right! He not only danced with my daugh­ter, but pro­vided the ac­com­pa­ny­ing mu­sic as well! If that is not the def­i­ni­tion of Dis­ney Magic, I don’t know what is! She also met him dressed as Tiana, and on our most re­cent trip, she met him as Min­nie Mouse! With each cos­tume, he in­ter­acted ac­cord­ingly. He bowed to my princess, and he was thrilled to set eyes on his long­time love!
