Any opinions about it?
think you rent on for $8 a day to see if you really like it.
It looks like fun let us know how you like it if you get it!
I got this off the All Ears site:
Where you'll find it: Pal Mickey is available at resorts and selected theme park gift shops.
Pal Mickey is available in Spanish at these locations: Main Street Cinema - Magic Kingdom; Darkroom - Disney-MGM Studios; Camera Center Epcot; Disney Outfitters - Disney's Animal Kingdom; Once Upon A Toy Downtown Disney Marketplace for sale only, not rental.
How much it costs: Pal Mickey may be rented for $8/day plus tax. When you rent Pal Mickey, a Cast Member will charge your credit card with a $60 deposit. If you return Pal Mickey before noon the following day, the $60 deposit will be refunded and you will be charged $8 plus tax. (You may also rent Pal Mickey for several days: $16 plus tax/two days, $24 plus tax/three days, $32 plus tax/four, five or six days). If you decide you want to buy Pal Mickey instead, he costs $56.33 plus tax (in other words, $60). Should you want to keep Pal Mickey after you've rented him, your $60 deposit will be used as the total purchase price.
Is Pal Mickey worth the money? Also, is there a website that gives a demonstration on what he does. I would like to know what kind of info it gives and hear his voice.
I'm buying one in october, so I post a full detailed review and a sound clip once I get back.
Here is a link to Pal Mickey that lists what he does at each of the parks.

Reason: Added Pal Mickey Link
I bought a pal Mickey last year when they came out and I loved it. Also when we went back this year we took it where they are sold and everything was updated for free.
We have a Pal Mickey too and love it. Got it last year. It wouldn't do anything at first, so thought I got a dud, but when I went into a store to see if I could exchange it, she said that it wasn't programed. Did it right there. What was fun, is lots of people came up and asked us about it. That was fun.
Call me weird,but WHAT'S A "PAL MICKEY"? I've never heard of it and when I got on this site,i've seen it mentioned alot! Can anyone describe "him"?

I have one. He's basically about a 10 inch plush Mickey that is interactive throughout the parks and at home. For example if you ride the Haunted Mansion, Pal Mickey knows you are there and will say stuff about the Mansion. He even tailors his somewhat corny jokes for the are of the park you are in. His nose acts as a sensor so he knows where he is at.
He also lets you know where characters are, parade times, etc.
He'll also play games away from the parks. They sell home all over WDW, every resorts and usually 1-2 places in each Theme Park. He's been around for well over a year now.
always plotting, planning, and looking forward to our next adventure...
I know he was there in Summer 2003, but as I didn't know what a Pal Mickey was, I thought it was just an outragesouly priced stuffed animal...go figure, an expensive item at WDW...
Por favor mantanganse alijado de las puertas.
I get it,I've seen it and didn't know it was the amazing Pal Mickey. It sounds cute!!! Thanks Mandabella!
Arrangements for Pal Mickey
Sounds like Pal Mickey is great! Is there any way I can arrange to have pal mickey sent to our room so it's there when we get there with a note from Mickey (or a nice cast member saying welcome to the park) ? If so, how can I arrange it? Is it worth the money or is there a better souvenir I should save and spurge on instead of the pal mickey?
Rumor is that they've been using the Pal Mickey to track guests in the park, as well. They have tracking that shows when each goes off, so it's been used as a tool to track how guests travel through the parks -- what they've apparently found is that most guests with one will go straight to Mickey's Toontown Fair for a visit with Mickey first thing in the morning. So, these statisics will eventually determine times when events go on, what times things should be open, etc. Seems like the data can be a little too sketchy, though. But that's just my opinion.
