"Who's the leader of the club
That's made for you and me?
On our last day at Magic Kingdom, we always stop by to say "See ya real soon" to Mickey. The Magic Kingdom Mickey is very special, not just because he's a magician, but because he is more interactive than most...Mickey uses his magic to talk to you.
Sadly, those days have come to an end, and Mickey no longer can talk to the guests visiting him. Perhaps budget cuts or he's run out of magic in his wand, but we are sure going to miss him. There was something really special knowing that when Mickey was saying, "Hiya Pal!" he was saying it to YOU.
The reasons we've heard for the change was it was too confusing then when other characters didn't talk, or during other times Mickey couldn't talk, like when he visited Animal Kingdom. We always just assumed that Magician Mickey used his wand to speak, and without it, he was silent and never thought twice about when he couldn't talk. I guess that Disney Magic wasn't something others wanted to believe in!
Perhaps one day, Mickey will be able to talk with others again, but for now, he's gone back to being a wonderfully interactive, but silent, friend at Disney. That makes me a little sad, and I'm not sure our next visit with him will be nearly so fun.
"Now it's time to say goodbye
to all our company...
M-I-C (...you real soon!)
K-E-Y (Why? because we like you!)
So long Mickey! We're going to miss your awesome voice and the incredible interaction it gave.
