Wow. I can see this happening though since on several of my trips, I have gotten non-talking Mickey. I thought it was a technical problem, but now I can see that being them trying to save money.
How does this save money? There's still the same number of CM's. The same costumes. All it might save is a bit of wear and tare on the electronics that talk?
I had a grievance filed on me once for giving union members a raise. Entire HR investigation for increasing their pay. One of the most asinine things I have ever been a part of.
There is a CM behind the controls of the talking. So now you only need a handler and the person inside instead of that person behind the controls.
That kinda sucks. I can see how a kid would be pretty wowed if MM knew the child's name or whatever it is that talking Mickey does. Seems like really tiny cost savings vs. the cool factor for guests.
Agreed but this is Disney after all.
That's a ROI that seems like a dumb decision though. Happy clients are returning, spending clients. The "wow" factor vs. the cost seems like bad business to me which is why I'm surprised.
WOW I know something I will be getting a FP+ for in March
Have you confirmed it is a result of cost saving? Or is it possibly the end of a test run on the concept? He types as he dons his rose colored glasses.
I have it confirmed from a very close to the situation source. They are justifying it by saying guests get confused that he only talks at one location and instead of upgrading the other locations they’ll just cut this one.
Hmmm do I plan on booking a last minute trip if passholder previews are released OR proactively book something in June and secure FP+. Decisions decisions
Enzo’s Hideaway opens tonight!
I have always found it strange that there has only been one location with Talking Mickey. The question I really have now is, will they downgrade the characters in the Castle Shows? Talking Mickey isn't in Fantasmic or in the parades.
No the talking Mickeys in shows, parades, etc. will stay as they are pre programmed.

I do like that the inside of that mug reads "I am the terror that flaps in the night!"
