How cool was it to see video of Mickey Mouse talking with guests and testing some new tricks at Walt Disney World this week? If you were visiting Magic Kingdom Park on Halloween night, there was a chance you could have seen or experienced it first-hand.

Mickey and his pals at Magic Kingdom Park, Walt Disney Creative Entertainment, and Walt Disney Imagineering helped create the video especially for the Disney Parks Blog. Please let us know what you think in the comments.
