Video: Silent film tribute to Mickey Mouse in his new Town Square Theater meet-and-greet in the Magic Kingdom

in Disney, Entertainment, Theme Parks

Since the new Town Square Theater recently opened at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom, plenty of pictures and video have shown up online (including our own), showing off all the the details found throughout the new Mickey Mouse meet-and-greet.

But given the turn-of-the-century Victorian theater theme of the new location, it simply didn’t seem right to present it all in vibrant color with stereo sound using the latest camera technology. So today I offer a different sort of look at Mickey’s new home in Town Square Theater.

Enjoy the silent film-inspired video below taking you on a tour of the new Town Square Theater and meeting Magician Mickey Mouse:

Town Square Theater also currently offers visitors a chance to meet and greet with the Disney Princesses until their new home is ready as part of the New Fantasyland expansion. It also features the first-ever use of Disney’s Fastpass“>Fastpass system to reserve character meet-and-greet times. So far, wait times have been low for both meet-and-greets, so it seems the Fastpass system is doing its job of keeping guests happy no matter which method of visiting they choose to use.

But even with all the new technology keeping wait times down, it still feels most appropriate to me to witness the 1901 character meeting through the fun filter of the silent film above.
