The “Talking” Mickey Mouse meet and greet, one of the more popular attractions at the Magic Kingdom, may be massively altered in the coming months.
According to Cast Members at Town Square Theater, Disney will soon be silencing the Mickey at the meet and greet location on Main Street U.S.A. This decision likely has been made for a variety of reasons, some being technical difficulties and overall guest confusion since other Mickey characters in the park do not talk to guests.
There is no definitive date for when Mickey will go silent at the Town Square Theater location, but Cast Members are speculating mid to late Spring, 2018.
Mickey will continue to meet guests at this location beyond the changes in the Spring, but he will likely no longer communicate with guests.
