I stopped om the Character Premiere yesterday. They had the Pal Mickeys on clearance for $13.99. I had been looking at buying once since they were $27.99. Glad I waited until it got closer to our trip. Doing the happy dance!! LOL!!

Good morning! I have not heard of the Character Prmiere - is it a website, etc? I'd love to get a Pal Mickey for that price!

Thanks a bunch!

Thanks so much OP! :love2: Just got mine! It must be a brand new markdown, the lady first didn't believe me when I asked if they were $13.99 - she had to go check and even she was surprised!

Does anyone know the difference between the old one and the new one (beside the tuxedo)?

Is it the new Pal Mickeys - or the older ones?

That is such a deal! :wave:

09-04-2005, 01:00 PM
The phone # is 954-871-7161.

It is the older version.

It was a new mark down. They just marked them down last night. I was at the mall and decided to stop in and check. I am soooo glad that I did. I am not sure what the difference is between the new and old version.

Happy to help!! I know that we are all looking for ways to save money so that our trips cost as little as possible for the best times possible!!

Thanks OP! I just called and ordered 2, one for my niece, and one for my DS2. I think I will get my DD 8 a newer version at the parks, and we will carry that one around with us ( I heard they are louder) I was only planning on getting 1 before, so it will be much more peaceful now (no fighting over it) LOL! Thanks so much!

They said it can take up to 3 weeks to receive it, we are leaving in 21 days exactly, I hope they get here. If not they can be souveniers for my nephews.

THANKS AGAIN GREAT BARGAIN!

Do you know where the cheapest place to get T-shirts is?

SheDaisy,

I can't thank you enough for this post! I just order 2 (with shipping) for under $40!!! I wanted to get one for the kids but couldn't justify the cost. When they dropped to below $30 each, I thought about it but still just couldn't do it as we are on a tight budget. But now, WOO HOO! :banana:

Even if the kids don't like lugging it around, it will be a great souvienear for after the trip!

Again, many, many thanks!!!! :cloud9:

Did they say how much shipping was? The lady I talked to didn't know.

tink76
09-05-2005, 10:19 AM
Yay! I am ordering mine now!
She said shipping is about $10
She also said the difference is that the newer one has a bigger vocabulary and talks about some of the newer attractions. But for this price that is okay by me.
Total for one was $22 and some change with shipping

:banana: :banana: :banana: :banana: :banana: :banana: :banana:
Thanks!

I ordered mine. Shipping was 8.95 for one and I believe 10.95 for two. More than that depended on the total.

Hope there are still some left when I call tomorrow--now I can get one for both the girls!!!
Not to sound silly but what do you say when you call? How is: "I heard you had the old Pal Mickey's for $13.99--Would it be possible for me to order two over the phone and get them shipped out of state?" I get very nervous on the phone and like to pre-plan what I am going to say:)

09-06-2005, 02:37 PM
WAH!!!!!!! They currently are NOT shipping to my state (Alabama) due to Katrina. Since we *almost* live in TN, she's seeing if they can ship and will call me back.

Does anyone know if I can get it shipped to my Mom or MIL (TN and SC respectively), would I still have time to get to me by Sept 22?

update....yes they can, but it will be delayed. I can deal with delayed, and if it had come down to it, yes I would have totally understood and "sucked it up" and bought the new one in the parks. Just glad I don't have to now, AND I purchased 2 so the boys don't fight over them.

emnrich
09-09-2005, 08:56 AM
What do you mean by delayed? I ordered on Monday, they charged the card on Tues, so I expect they shipped soon after charging me. I leave on the 20th and need it by the 19th.

Disneynutbsv
09-09-2005, 12:02 PM
Thanks, I just ordered on and the total came to $22.94. She told me it would take 2 weeks to get it. I asked if they have an expedited shipping option because I'm leaving in exactly two weeks...She said she would make sure it went out today. I hope she's right!!! My daughter will be so surprised!!!

09-09-2005, 02:38 PM
What is the difference in the ones they sell at the park vs these? Is it just a different outfit/look?

And what age child (or adult?!) would like these?

GeorgiaAristocat
09-09-2005, 03:12 PM
The store in Orlando still has some, JUST found this thread and immediately ordered one - I think it was $22.94 with shipping (to GA - UPS). Still cheaper than even the previous markdown.

What is the difference in the ones they sell at the park vs these? Is it just a different outfit/look?

And what age child (or adult?!) would like these?

Okay, the difference between the "new" and "old" (as I understand it), is that the "new" Pal Mickey is dressed in a tuxedo and has more jokes/games/new information from the old one. I have heard of people getting these for younger kids all the way to adults. There were some posts about adults finding them annoying, etc. Also some adults found them too cumbersome to actually carry around, so they ripped parts of Mickey off so that they were just carrying the inner workings to get the info (I, personally, would feel AWFUL carrying around a ripped up Mickey with all those kids around, especially since I am unable to pay for the therapy they probably need after being subjected to that horror! :earseek: ) I bought the Pal Mickey for myself (for this trip), but I fully expect to pass it on to my kids when we take them to Disney next year or the year after.

I have also seen other posts where if you take in your "old" Pal, that they can be "updated" in the Parks (to get all the new info, etc.) - I will now need the low-down on that procedure. Can anyone help?

I too ordered mine on Monday, after the tip from the OP, and received it today. That was quick! I took him out of the box and have been listening to his jokes. Dh looks at me and says "did you buy that for the kids, or you?" I think I bought it for me, but maybe I'll let the kids play with it too. ;)

Your old pals can receive updated park operations info such as show times and parade times things of that nature..He will not have or be able to get any information on the new rides that have been built since he was created. I urge you all to go to palmickey.net for all questions reguarding your pals. They are a well informed community of adult pal mickey owners and at least one disney cm is on the site for the best information please check out this site.

So glad you posted this!!! :love2:

I just ordered 3. I was planning to just get ONE, but...LOL You all know the rest of the story!

Seriously, I opted to get the other 2 because of shipping. Shipping for one was $8.95 and shipping for all 3 was 10.95, so it seemed to make sense. And since I have 3 kids...no fighting over him! (Though I don't know that I want to be taking 3 of them all through the parks, but I'll cross that bridge when I get to it.)

I was also told 2-3 weeks. She said that it would probably be much sooner, but just to be safe and avoid disappointing anyone, they were saying 2-3 weeks.

3DisneyKids! That is the same thing I did! I ordered 4, though... After tax and shipping they run about $17 each. These will make great Christmas gifts for other family members! I'm glad I got in on this! THANK YOU for starting this thread, SHEDAISY0088!

Do you know if these Pal Mickey will work in the parks when visiting in a couple of weeks?

hsmamato2
09-12-2005, 06:04 PM
This is a great deal- thinking of doing it... Last winter- we got 2 magical moments pins for 2.00 apiece- they were clearing them out...anyway, they're supposed to light up and twinkle when you have a "magical moment" :rotfl: - it seems that there were sensors everywhere in the parks- and they would go off, and surprise the kids, they really loved it- I think the Pal Mickey uses the same sensors. The pins make no noise, but I'm pretty sure they're on the same system. Question??? Is it a pain to carry the PM's around? How big and heavy are they? I'd worry that we'd lose it... :confused3

Disbug
09-12-2005, 07:23 PM
Hi! nutz4diznee! These should definitely work inside the parks.. That is why I bought mine! I think they will not include info about new attractions, such as SOARIN'... They will still receive the signals from the sensors located around the parks, though! I hope I get mine in time for our trip this October! Yay! F&W and MNSSHP.. Yippee! :goodvibes :cool1:

hsmamato2 The Pal Mickey's aren't that heavy maybe a Pound at the most... There is a clip/strap you can use to secure him... But I was always afraid to lose him as well!

Thank you so much for posting this deal. I bought 2 - one for my DS and one for a b'day gift for my DD's friend. DD's PM cost over $50. I do have a question though. Does anyone know what the differences are between the old PM and the new PM - other than the obvious tux. Does the old one still work in the parks. Does it pick up everything (transmissions) that the new one picks up? Thanks.

Diznenut
09-15-2005, 08:44 AM
the CM who I ordered mine from said they will work in all the parks exactly like the new ones EXCEPT -

When they are made at the factory, they are hardwired with what information they will receive. So, the newest rides (like soarin) will not be available as they were not here when these models were designed. The new ones also have some new jokes. Other than that, they will pick up the same information as the new ones.

Suzanne74
09-15-2005, 11:48 AM
Please please question the shipping. I just called and they wanted my credit card # before even giving me a price. I asked about the price and she told me it would be $25 something she thought. I asked what the shipping charges were and she said $15 :earseek: I told her "my friend" just called and was sent one with $8.95 shipping. She went on hold and came back and said I was right.

So they are still available but don't pay anymore then $9 on shipping

WeluvDisney2
09-15-2005, 12:02 PM
It actually only cost them $4.80 to ship one to Massachusetts by UPS. I paid them $8.95 to ship it. I was not going to complain about the extra $4 though, because it was such a great price to start with.
One more question, does Pal Mickey work in all of the parks, or just the Magic Kingdom? Thanks!

HayGan
09-15-2005, 12:15 PM
$8.95 shipping is for 1
$10.95 shipping is for 2

I'm not going to complain about the shipping at all. It cost me less than $40 to have 2 shipped to my home. It would have cost me well over $100 to purchase them at WDW!

I'm glad I found this thread!

I just ordered 3 for my upcoming family trip (was going to get one on eBay just this morning for $24.99 + $10.95 shipping.)

Strangely, she said that it was $8.95 shipping for the WHOLE order.

I'm just confused about this shipping thing. Whatever works, eh?

I was trying to think of a "Welcome to Disney" gift for my MiL/SiL and DS/BiL but couldn't think of anything - this will be perfect ;)

You also need to keep Mickey pointing forward in the park so he'll get activated at the different locations. We hung ours from a belt loop. When we hooked him on our backpack (he was pointing backwards), we never got buzzed.

I am sure everyone is ' playing ' with their Pal MIckeys when they get them, but incase your not you better check them out. I got three and one of them does not work. He also has some sticky stuff on his nose, looks like a kid was giving him a little bit of love :love: . I called and they are going to send a replacement out with a tag to send this broken one back.

THANKS OP!

I bought one for our upcoming trip today. They said the shipping would be in 4-6 weeks. They are getting a steady stream of calls about this little guy. I thought that the original price tag was a bit crazy. I remember thinking to myself that if I could get it for about $15 that it would be a perfect. Well, I got my perfectly unupdated Pal Mickey.

Quick question though...........can you turn the Pal Mickey off?? Or does it continiously talk throughout the park??

I looked at WDW website and found the Pal Mickey section, but not much info.....thanks

We got ours this week. It has an off/on switch so you can turn it off.

They are pretty cool. My daughter loves hers and its all i can do to keep her out of the Disney box and leave it alone.

He will still play a few games and such (demo mode), but he has to be in the on position to get updates in the parks.

He is in demo mode. Turn the button on and then off to get your pal out of demo mode.

If you forget to have it on and facing forward when you enter the parks then take him to guest relations.

They still have them - I just ordered one! Total was $22.94 with shipping. I'm going to give it to my niece for her first trip in December as an early Christmas present.

The very nice woman I spoke with said that due to the overwhelming demand, Disney is now directly shipping them out. She said it would be upwards of 4 weeks before I got it, but did say she thought it would arrive sooner.

What a great deal!

When Pal Mickey has something to say, he vibrates. You have to squeeze his hand to hear what he has to say. So, they won't all talk at once unless everyone squeezes at once.

GPALANGE
09-30-2005, 01:21 PM
Someone had said if you forget to have him facing forward and on when you walk in the park take him to guest services, and another asked you need to do this? And it was never answerd. Anyone know about this?

poohj80
09-30-2005, 01:26 PM
You can take him to Guest Services or most any store near the park entrances. Ours didn't activate when we entered MGM but as we walked toward the big hat he did so it just took a few extra steps.

TnTWalter
09-30-2005, 02:04 PM
all 3 of them anyway! That plus all the other stuff I'll be lugging around! ;o) I'm going to make this a Christmas present to all of them to 'announce' the trip. They've heard me on the phone and have asked if we're going to Disney World...but I haven't said yes...just maybe someday. I'm so excited. They're 7, 5, & 3.

Okay Here is my experience:

I have 2 kids but also decided one was enough b/c eventually one will get tiered of carrying and pass it to the other. By the end of the week I'll be carrying it anyhow.

I called character premiere (not warehouse). The number I used is a little diff too: 1-904-829-0359 / 1-904-829-2562 (number they called back from). Got right thru, no machine....but I was on hold for a few minutes.

I confirmed the price of the PM and then I was given a total of $40 something for one PM....huh? She said that 13.99 was the price but that it wasn't ringing up correctly. With the volume they've been selling I can't believe she didn't catch that herself! She canceled it (before I gave her my CC # thank goodness) and rerang it properly...$23 something after tax and shipping. She also tested it (apparently they ship out ones from the store...and not directly from disney as another store may be doing AND they had them there...not on backorder.)

About two hours later they called me back. Apparently they'd already sent the PM out (WOW that was fast) and had forgotten to stick my reciept in the box so he let me know it would be coming a few days behind the PM in a seperate envelope. Good customer service IMO.

I ordered 4 for our summer 2006 trip (2 for my girls and 2 for my nieces who are going w/ us) and got them in just a few days. I tested them all - just tooooo cute and can't wait to get them out to play! Now just wondering if I should give them as Christmas gifts to our dds (the nieces are for sure for Christmas) or wait until just before our trip - I think I'll wait....

I've got to spend more time in the Budget Board threads...younz guys are a wealth of information. :banana: Didn't know about Pal Mickey's discounted price until I read it on MouseEars...what a deal. Hope he comes soon, ordered for my DS for upcoming trip but think I'll have to test drive him first!

Few questions...

***What size battery does he use?

***What are his approximate dimensions?

***Is he heavy?

***Does he have any type of hang-tag or loop to affix him to a fanny-pak?

***What are the 5 new rides excluded (other than Soarin')

Anyone else creeped out by the earlier post that described the dismembering of poor, Pal Mickey?:eek:

Just wondering if anyone has taken their "what a great deal" Pal Mickey to the parks yet. I realize that they aren't going to know about new rides but wondered how they were doing on parade times etc. We go in less than 3 weeks and I can't wait to surprise the boys with them.

Yep, sure have and he did great! We had to learn that Mickey needs to be facing forward to activiate but he reminded us when it was 30 minutes to a show or parade and told us when there was a short wait on rides as well as the general park information. He was a BIG hit!

Thanks to you all for this post. We bought one of the original PM when were were at WDW last year for spring break and he went back with us this August. Unfortunetly he was hanging off my daughters purse when we got caught in a downpour. Mickey did not fair well in the rain. We let him dry out but now he just vibrates non stop and doesn't talk. So I just bought 2 PMs, one to give to my kids right before our trip in November and 1 for my niece for Xmas. 2 PMs @ 13.99 each plus shipping of 10.95 = $38.93 almost 1/2 of what we spent on the first one. :cool1:

Thank you so much to the person that posted this! I thought for sure I'd already missed out on this deal but I called and ordered 2 today! She did say up to 4wks shipping because it's UPS ground and they can't guarantee but I'm not worried how long it will take- it will be awhile before we're back to WDW anyway and maybe I can throw these in as a Christmas gift. LOL

This is great! I purchased one of the Pal Mickey's years ago when they first came out- cost a fortune! (IMO lol) This is a great deal and now I'll have one for EACH of my kids so they don't have to argue over who gets to hold it and then get irritated if the one holding it doesn't let them know when Mickey has said something and instead listens to it over and over THEMSELVES. :rotfl:

Even though I was told it would be approx. 3 to 4 weeks they were here in little over a week. I know my kiddos are going to love their new "pal." My 10 year old was really looking at them on our last trip but realized it would take all of her money to buy him. She and the others will be so happy to get them on Christmas morning.

Takinf frm all ears website : "The new Pal Mickey is priced slightly higher than the previous version ($65 plus tax) and is all dressed up in a removable tuxedo jacket. He not only comes with new games and songs, but he also has a brand-new carrying lanyard and a louder speaking voice."
