Oh, the magic of technology!

Visiting your favorite mouse and friends is getting a little more interactive. Videos have been popping up featuring Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse and Donald Duck speaking to guests. No more awkward staring and head movements when addressing the magical mouse, because these characters can now interact in real time.

These speaking characters are being tried out inside Disney California Adventure Park, during a meet-and-greet experience. Mickey has been given these speaking enhancements before, but this is the first time guests will be able to have a convo with Minnie Mouse and Donald Duck.

If I was able to speak to the big cheese, Mickey, when I was little, I would have gone crazy! This new feature is such a delight to hear for the future of the Disney experience. Now, your kids can remain speechless, while the characters just throw lines out and blow their minds.
