Rumors have been running for a while about Talking Mickey Mouse at Disney’s Magic Kingdom being silenced. It was confirmed today by cast members that Mickey Mouse no longer speaks to guests. While you can still meet the main mouse at the Town Square Theater, he won’t be able to talk as he is resting his voice for his show appearances.
There are numerous reasons for the change, one possibly being a ‘cost saving’ measure. Another thought was that it was confusing for some of Disney’s smaller guests to have Mickey Mouse talk when none of his pals could. The silent meet and greets are more consistent with the rest of the characters.
Whatever the reason, talking Mickey Mouse will certainly be missed by many. Cast members would not directly confirm if the change was permanent.
