What is Pal Mickey?
I considered getting one but then came to the conclusion that was brought up by my sister that i shouldn't. She decided I was like pal mickey because as we walked around the parks, I gave random information or said stupid disney jokes. I still think it would be cool to get a pal mickey though, but 60 bucks is pretty steep for me. As far as the autograph books, they aren't all that much. I think they are all under $10 but I'm not sure on that. I was going to get one, but got too excited and sorta made one before I went down.
The biggest thing to me would be having to carry it around....

I love my Pal Mickey, but I loved him less and less as the days progressed. He is fun, but it can get old toting him around. Also, I would put him on the stroller to lighten my load, but then I couldn't hear him.
Having said all that, I plan on buying batteries for the little guy so he can go back with us next week.
I like my Pal Mickey as well, but the novelty of owning and carrying him around wears off quickly. I do bring him to A park at least once when I'm home for a visit, but rarely does he get to go more than once. I have one of the early editions. He was a gift, and I'm not sure I would have been able to rationalize spending that much money for him. You need to remember to turn him off when going into attractions since Pal Mickey likes to talk to you at inconvenient times. I've never been able to figure out why I can barely hear him while I am walking, but in a quiet restaurant he screams, "The British are coming! The British are coming!" loud enough for the people across the room to hear him.

Adult daycare for the kid inside you.
He's a bit heavy, somewhat cumbersome, especially if it's hot. My biggest goof was always leaving him behind in the stroller. Luckily, he was never stolen. He was usually stuffed in the pouch. He's adorable though, especially when you are leaving the park at night. He says he's had a great day with you and gets all sappy and then says he wants to take a nap. My daugther loves him, but I'm the one who has to carry him! Uggh!

I have all three versions of PM so I guess you could say I'm a fan.
My Mickey goes to the parks with me almost every single day we are at the World. He has a place on the back of his head for a clip. I sewed small metal loops to the strap of my backpack and attach Mick using a caribeener. It's a great way to meet people from all over - Mickey can be very chatty. It doesn't hurt that he as a whole wardrobe of cute outfits courtesy of all the naked plush hidden in my closet!
I wanted to like Pal Mickey. I really did. He just sort of creeps me out. Sadly, I give him a thumbs down.
Sorry! Don't hate me! Now, if they had a Pal Cinderella who sang things and handed out compliments like, "Oh darling, I just adore the shoes you are wearing today", then sign me up!
Dreams Really Do Come True
We bought our first one this past August for our 3 year old and he loves him! Most of the time my husband was carrying him....we just simply attached him to one of our DWT lanyards and he wore him around his neck. He didn't complain about having to carry him at all and it was fun listening to our little one giggle when Mickey told one of his corny jokes! We will be taking him back with us each and every trip!
