And as a special option for consumers, Disney has packaged a version of the DVD to include the exclusive Mickey Mote – a child-friendly handheld remote control, shaped like Mickey ears, that takes children’s viewing experience to a whole new level of play.

Play Set is the ultimate value for moms and equally fun and engaging for kids! The Mickey Mote uses infrared wireless technology and may not be compatible with all devices.
Mickey Mouse Clubhouse: Minnie’s Masquerade starring Disney’s Fab Five -- Minnie, Mickey, Donald, Goofy and Daisy – takes viewers on an all new adventure as they dress-up in their favorite costumes for Minnie’s Masquerade Ball. In this episode, Minnie needs some help getting everything ready for her party including making royal crowns for their costumes, searching for Sir Goofalot’s lost shoe, stringing up paper lanterns and much, much more. At the ball, Professor Von Drake hosts the great Clubhouse Costume Show and gives out prize ribbons to all the friends who have dressed up in some funny and fancy costumes. All it takes is a heaping helping of imagination…and the right Mouseketools.
About Disney’s Exclusive Mickey Mote:
Disney’s Mickey Mote works with any Disney Preschool DVD that includes the Discovery Mode™ feature – an interactive “Watch & Play” feature on the DVD. All parents have to do is program the remote control - there’s an easy and quick set-up guide in each DVD- and select the Discovery Mode feature on the menu screen. Within minutes, kids will be easily responding to questions, throughout the story, about scenes they just watched by pressing one of four color-coded buttons on the device -- a yellow star, green circle, orange triangle or blue square – to click in their responses. Discovery Mode features include two levels of play, which provides more challenging questions as the child grows.
The Mickey Mote can be used with any Disney Preschool DVD that includes the Discovery Mode feature.
To date there are more than 11 titles that can be used with the remote control, just take a look at the backof the package to make sure.
To get straight to the point, my boys and I give it a 5 out of 5.
This is more than just an average DVD. The Mickey Mote that allows your child to watch and play along with the Disney characters!! They get to answer fun questions about colors, shapes, and sized in mode I and then move on to a higher level of play in Mode II. Your child can also enjoy the DVD straight through without using the Mickey Mote.
My boys are 2 1/2 and 7 and are both Mickey fans. They've watched and played along with the DVD every day since the day we received it in the mail. It's a big hit!
I found setting up the Mickey mote to be very easy...even though I fudged it up a bit the first time, I was able to go back and easily correct my mistake by following the instructions from the beginning. Disney offers 11 other titles that can be used with the Mickey Mote.
Disclosure: I received a free copy of the DVD to review. The opinions are 100% mine (and my boys').
