Disney’s ‘Mayhem at the Mansion’ Augmented Reality Game Now Available for Download

Disney's 'Mayhem at the Mansion' AR GameConfirming an earlier report by Stitch Kingdom, although the game has not yet been officially announced by Disney Parks and Resorts, the iOS version of Disney’s ‘Mayhem at the Mansion’ is now available as a free download from the iTunes App Store.

As we previously pointed out, the idea behind the augmented reality game is to go to certain locations marked on the Magic Kingdom’s Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party event map, find one of the hitchhiking ghosts who have escaped from the Haunted Mansion and capture them using the ‘spectre collector’ in the app. Interactions can be saved and shared before returning the ghost to his rightful place back at the Haunted Mansion.

Disney Parks Announces Casting Sessions for ‘Big Hero 6′ Hiro Hamada Role

Hiro Hamada from 'Big Hero 6'Just a few hours after officially confirming meet and greet character appearances by Hiro and Baymax from Disney’s upcoming animated feature Big Hero 6 (November 7, 2014), Disney Parks and Resorts has issued casting call notices to fill the role of Hiro.

Although the characters are expected to begin making in-park appearances beginning in the fall, the casting notices fail to mention approximate start dates for the roles, but also note that all look-a-likes (face characters) are expected to perform meet and greets in full costumes as well, so the start date of the position does not appear to directly reflect that of the Big Hero 6 meet and greets.
