New Interactive Toy Keeps Walt Disney World Guests Entertained and Informed During Theme Park Trips

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- He’s the ultimate insider at Walt Disney World Resort, a cheerful friend who helps enhance a theme park visit with timesaving tips and fun facts. Who is he? Pal Mickey!

Available for rental or purchase beginning in April, Pal Mickey is a talking Mickey Mouse toy that will keep guests entertained and informed by recommending theme park attractions, offering reminders about parades and show times, sharing stories, playing games and helping locate Disney characters in the parks.

The interactive toy will be available to all guests as a daily rental for $8 per day plus tax and a refundable deposit, or as a $46.94 purchase plus tax at merchandise locations in each of the Walt Disney World resort hotels starting in April.

Pal Mickey will be offered at select locations in Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney-MGM Studios and Disney’s Animal Kingdom beginning in May.

According to the press release, Pal Mickey will be your own personal plush tour guide. A squeeze of his hand will evoke suggestions, park tips and even jokes. Pal Mickey will be able to recommend attractions with short lines, locate characters in the parks, tell stories and play interactive games to keep you entertained while you wait in line, and remind you of show and parade times.

Hope this helps!

Pal Mickey rocks! He's so fun to play with and very helpful for wait times and such. He also plays games with you, and gives you info that even some of the most well informed CMs don't know.

I had fun with him every since I got it in May. During July 4th when thh crowds were large I enjoyed just walking around the park and seeing where he went off and what he had to say. Very much worth the $50 for him. Some of his jokes are just down right awful.

hehe we're having fun with our "loaner" ones. We have two at Fantasmic that we can check out to carry around with us while we're working. I had a scared little boy in the entry plaza and said my Mickey wants to tell you a joke...so I let him hold him. Mom, not speaking much English, says "present? thank so much" me "umm, no I have to have him back" the kid starts screaming and they were going to hand over the $50 to buy mine. It was crazy. Too bad I couldn't have sold that one, I don't think I'll ever let any of the guests hold mine again!

Oh my. people expect everything from Disney sometimes. I have had more cast members run up to me to hear a joke from him than I ever expected. The first few that did it scared me. I really wasn't sure what they were doing at first.

Yep that was it.

I was walking through MGM (just got off tower) and was near the Traffic/times board at Hollywood and Sunset. Someone else had one and he started shaking. That was the end of it for my roommate and I. We found the nearest cast member and had to get one. Went to the Darkroom got one and have been hooked since.

Yes! Just at the start of the park (Oasis) he has about 30-40 things to tell ya.

Are there any rides he activates on? I know the Haunted Mansion at MK he does. Any others?

As far as I know, he's not supposed to ativate on any rides because they decided that it would take away too much from the attraction. He does say something joke wise or info wise at most if not all of the rides.

as for the HM thing, I have no clue, I haven't taken him on it yet. That wouldn't be a bad place for activation.
