Interactive Features Finally Being Installed on Fab 50 Character Statues at Walt Disney World

At Magic Kingdom this morning, we noticed speakers have been installed at some of the Fab 50 statues. It was originally announced that these statues would be “interactive” and it looks like preparations for that have finally begun.

The speakers are small and black.

We noticed the speakers at each one of the statues in the Hub. You can see this one in the flowers below Minnie’s foot.

Over in Tomorrowland, Stitch also has a set of speakers on the purple wall above him.

The outside of the speakers are also purple to blend in with the wall.

And Lady and Tramp have a speaker blended in with the flowers.

We still don’t know exactly how we’ll be able to “interact” with the statues. The speakers are an indication that maybe we’ll be able to hear the characters speak.

The Walt Disney World website says we’ll be able to interact with them in “surprising new ways.” And when the new MagicBand+ system was announced, it was also announced we’d be able to use our MagicBands to interact with the statues.

Are you excited to interact with the Fab 50 statues? Let us know in the comments.

  1. Oh, hurry, hurry Disneyworld!! Our trip is in 3 weeks and I’d LOVE to buy 4 of the new Magicband+ units so we can interact with these golden lovelies!!!! Please release them on March 1st to coincide with the upcoming Epcot Flower and Garden Festival and the maiden guest voyage of the Galactic Starcruiser!! You may never hear me say this again but please, take my money!!!!!!!!!!

  2. It seems like they were still trying to prefect them during this time. And now it’s all finally ready.

  3. We’re already 6 months away from the 50th and now they’re getting the 50th statues interactive? I suppose they will introduce the Tron coaster Oct 1st for the 51st at this rate.

  4. They need to interact with a brush and soapy water to clean the bird poop off! Now that’s interactive!!!

  5. Is this an indicator that MagicBand+ will be released soon? Its been shared that they will interact with these statues.

  6. Look for them to read the number from your magic band, do a database lookup, and say “Hello, Timmy! Welcome to WDW.”
