But I am more impressed that it appears Disney has paid the City of New York for something that has been done only one other time. Close Times Square to make it seem empty for the "set-up" by Mickey.
Bonus points if anyone else knows what other time this was done.

This will be very popular in Times Square, but in the parks I would expect to meet the characters "for real."

Maybe something like an advanced Xbox Kinect game where the players interact or even become the Disney characters on-screen.
