  • Pal Mickey [and Figaro Fries]

    Hey all I just saw PAL MICKEY I WANT ONE. But my question is are they worth it and should I wait till my trip to WDW in may to buy one? I see them on ebay and the main problem I have there are is it says it will tell you about parade times but as I recall disney likes to change times some times so does this mean Pal Mickey will change when it goes in to the park? Still a little confused by it. How does it know the ride wait times? Wifi? Just wondering. But I still WANT ONE .

    And I might get in trouble but what are Fargo (think that's right) Fize (Ya I now I am wrong on that spelling) the frize with I think it's ranch on it. I gotta try them at WDW.

    Any help on this would be great

    I know some people who had them during Invasion II were actually getting quite annoyed with Pal Mickey.

      Pal Mickey is VERY cute. He vibrates and says "Gosh" every time he wants your attention. Then you squeeze his tummy or hand and he'll tell you something about the park you are in or let you know that he wants to play a game with you: "I feel like singing. I'll start the song and you finish. If you want me to sing it for you, squeeze my tummy."

      A couple of problems - He NEVER shuts up, and it can be difficult to hear him in crowded areas.

      On the plus side - He is VERY cute and an interesting diversion when you are caught in line somewhere.

        I think they are an expensive gizmo for lonely people who do not have a date. Personally, they annoy me. I much rather rely on the guidemaps to plan my day, as opposed to Mickey going off every two minutes to remind me I am going to miss the 3pm if I don't rush.
        One thing I have to say for PalMickey though... he has nicer costumes than the WDW CMs themselves, and he wears them better too.

          My 6 year old loved it. Yes, it's a novelty and my kids had fun playing the games and hearing the jokes. But, for $70.00, I'd rather get a huge plush mickey and buy a joke book instead.

            No, Infrared. His nose is the receiver, and there are transmitters inside the parks. I picked one up this trip. Thought the Pal is delightfully cute. However, unless your going to the park with a backpack, he can be an extra thing to carry.

              At least he's a cheap date. $70 and you don't have to feed him.

              Or less, if you find him at the outlet.

                Pal Mickey has a receiver in his "nose" area, where he picks up triggers to provide his spiel. He pulls a update at the entrance to each park when you enter, and yes he never shuts up until you switch him off. I have one of the original first generation Pal Mickey's and he's held up very well over the years. Only thing is he can drain batteries while in WDW so keep extras on hand. When he starts acting weird replace his batteries and if needed take him to one of the stores that sell him to be "reprogrammed".

                The only other thing is, well he's not as much fun when at home. We did have a good laugh once when at the airport on our way home when he told us the parade was about to start... So yes some of it is programmed in at park entrance while other is done by some sort of proximity trigger.

                  And I bet he doesn't shut up in the HM foyer and strethcing gallery too! )

                      Mine has a power switch on the back... not hard to shut the little guy off if you want some quiet time. He only speaks when he's triggered by one of the IR transmitters or at pre-determined times.

                        I have PM, but I bought him with a pretty good discount. Yeah, he tells some pretty corny jokes, but he did tell me something pretty funny when we were leaving Pirates! He's not supposed to go off during a ride, but I think he said something once while I was on something, I can't remember. I plan on taking him with me this year and attaching him to a lanyard, then I can display my Christmas pins as well.

                          I was thinking of getting a Pal Mickey as a Christmas gift for a 4 year old & 9 year old. Where would be the best place to purchase one? With outfits? do they sell them at disneyland for Disney World? Or vice versa?

                            I don't think they have Pal Mickey at Disneyland. But you should be able to order one through
                            WDW merchandising at 1-407-363-6200

                            Just tell them what you are looking for and you can purchase it over the phone.

                              just remember to add shipping when ordering from deliver ears. We have two pal mickeys. one version one, and the other the newer version. they can hook onto a belt buckle when you are walking around the parks. the only problem we have with them is forgetting to bring them along.
