"Hey Disney" Voice Assistant Coming To Walt Disney World In 2022
News - WDW 28-Sep-2021
Disney has partnered with Amazon to create a custom voice assistant called "Hey Disney" based off Amazon's Alexa. It'll be available on Echo devices that will be installed at various locations at The Walt Disney World resort. "Hey Disney" will be primarily used for customer service inquiries, including helping to answer park related questions. Disney says this new wake word will "make the Alexa experience more magical." So instead of shouting for Alexa, you say "Hey Disney" and you can ask Disney Parks related questions.
"Hey Disney" will be complimentary on Amazon Echo devices in Disney Resort hotel rooms at Walt Disney World Resort starting in the year 2022. It'll be available to purchase to add to your own Echo devices at home shortly thereafter. Otterbox's Mickey stand (pictured above) will be able to pre-order in the US this week, but it's unclear if this will come to the UK at this time.
