Disney’s Imagineers really test the bounds of technology as they make incredible feats with their creations featured at the Disney Parks, the Disney Cruise Line, and beyond!
We all know and love features like the shadows during the queue of Peter Pan’s Flight and the immersive environment of Animal Kingdom’s Na’vi River Journey, but there is SO much new technology in the works right now. We’ll see facial recognition, a walking Baby Groot, massive human-controlled character puppets, real lightsabers, and more! And, now Disney is working with Amazon to bring a bit of that awesome technology into your home with the brand new “Hey, Disney!” feature on Alexa devices!
The interactive element on the Echo will allow fans to connect with their favorite Disney, Pixar, and Star Wars characters at home, a Disney Resort, or wherever they may go!
“Hey, Disney!” is in the works and once it debuts, it will have “authentic character voices, unique audio environments inspired by our films and destinations, and more than a thousand magical interactions to discover.”
However, that’s not everything that “Hey Disney!” will offer, because plenty of surprises are in store for Alexa users both big and small.
Big news! Starting next year, fans at home and Disney Resort hotel guests at @WaltDisneyWorld will be able to use an @Amazon Echo device to interact with some of their favorite characters just by saying…“Hey, Disney!” Find out more: https://t.co/yZXa0hjT3f pic.twitter.com/yj9x6YBYHY
