The Play Disney Parks app will soon offer a new augmented reality greeting from Mickey Mouse following a 3 night or longer stay at Walt Disney World Resort hotel.

After your vacation, check your mailbox for a letter thanking you for your visit, which will contain a special QR code to unlock a hidden screen in the Play Disney Parks app. 

Play Disney parks is available in the app store, and offers in-queue games while in the parks, Disney trivia, music and more. Check out he video below for a look at the new Mickey Mouse augmented reality greeting.

I hope this doesn't mean they're eliminating those. That would be shameful. EDIT: Disney does TONS of mass-mailing even without those cards. We get at least a dozen mailings a month from them.

I believe those who stay for 3 nights already get a card, this is just adding an AR Mickey code to it. Sending cards to everyone would exponentially increase the number of mailings (and likely create multiple mailings to many guests).

I think that's neat, to be honest. Do a large number of people really stay only two nights there?

This is a little added fun, people! Goodness gracious. Send a YouTube to anyone who dares stay less than 3 nights, and then give to their charity.

“Hi Pal! Here’s your Visa bill. See ya real soon!”

I guess the board didn't approve a ducky williams card for only 2 night stayers. That would dip into the extra billions made from the 20% increase in room rate, new parking fees, and $15 star wars beers.

That seems so silly. I can't imagine anyone adding a day to their vacation to get this, so limiting isn't an incentive at all. And it seems like it's punishing people who dare to only stay 3 nights inside disney, instead of being a treat for anyone who chooses to stay at all.

Stay for less than three nights, NO MICKEY FOR YOU!!!
