    Some of you know I collect Mickey plush (especially SW) I always go to WDW each year with the intention of buying him....and have never done so yet!
    Last year I was put off by the outfit he was wearing when I saw him

    Do you have a Pal Mickey?
    What are the pros and cons to having him with you all day?

    Back when Pal Mickey was new, DVC members were given the opportunity to "rent" one for a day. I did. Cured me of wanting one.

    At that time Pal Mickey could not get wet (don't know if that's still true) so keeping it dry in the summer, in the parks was a challenge. It defeated the purpose of the whole thing to have to wrap it in a plastic bag and tuck it out of the rain.

    Plus, I couldn't hear it well in many of the noisier settings. The one I rented was off sych too. It told me about the three o' clock parade when I was in the room at WL!

    So, I wasn't impressed enough to buy.

    However, if I had a small child, I'd consider it for the entertainment value while standing on line, alone. I'll bet that parents end up with carrying the toys far more than the children do!

    If I collected plush Mickeys, I'd probably want one to make the collection complete, but that would be about it.

    Now, if they had a Pal Tinkerbell... :D :D

    Actually....that's a great idea to have the character of your choice tell you when the parade is about to start etc. I bet many folk would buy Tink, Donald, Goofy, etc :p015:

    Wouldn't that be great! I wonder when Disney will take your wise counsel? :D

    Steven has a Pal Mickey thanks to someone here.

    I've heard you can get all sorts of outfits for him? He will be coming with us in 2010 so will need a new wardrobe. :D

    I almost bought one last time, to keep me amused whilst waiting for DH as I don't do many of the rides. The cost put me off at the time.

    Oooh, I wish there was a Pal Piglet. :D

    We have a Pal Mickey and he has the Safari and Pirate outfits :D

    Don't think we will take him next year though as my 2 are a bit old for him now.

    They won't carry him around the parks when all they want to do is run from one ride to the next

    I'll end up carrying him along with all the other things they 'need' to take!!!

    I wanted to buy a Pal Mickey for Lexie last December, but her mother said "abosolutely not!"

    It's an ongoing battle--Lexie loves stuffed animals--or plush, as many call them--and her parents detest the things! She isn't allowed to have another one unless she gets rid of one first.
