“Talking” Mickey Mouse Meet and Greets Rumored to be Removed from Walt Disney World

Credit: Disney

There are multiple rumors circulating the various groups and blogs that Mickey the Magician (the talking Mickey Mouse), which is located in on Main Street, U.S.A. within Magic Kingdom theme park, will return to featuring a non-speaking Mickey Mouse.  The current rumor is that we could possibly see this change around May 2018.  One of the reasons that we have heard for this is that guests are getting confused about why Mickey Mouse would talk at one location and then be a non-speaking character at the other locations around Walt Disney World.  The other reason that is circulating is that Disney could be looking to make the change in order to save on costs.


The experience is awesome and one of the most magical character encounters that you can have while at Walt Disney World.  None of these changes have been confirmed directly by Disney, so at this time this is strictly considered a rumor.  We recommend that you get over to meet Mickey the Magician while you can, just in case we do see this rumor come true.

What do you all think of this possible change?  How many of you out there have met Mickey the Magician?

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
