Hey Disney will allow Guests to ask questions that will be helpful when it comes to getting around and finding things to do at the Walt Disney World Resort. Using Alexa technology for Amazon Echo supported devices, Hey Disney will be able to answer questions on everything from weather forecasts to park hours, while offering a variety of functions like timers and alarm clocks, and more.
In a much more magical spin from your standard Amazon Alexa, Hey Disney will share answers with Guests through a variety of voices from Disney characters like Mickey Mouse, Olaf, Rocket and Groot, Princess Tiana and many more.
