Pal Mickey (& Friends) Adventures & Fashions

The DDA adventure travels are winding down. Since there are still many of us that love to see pictures of all the Pal Mickeys showing their latest fashions and sharing their adventures, I have renamed this thread to include Pal Mickey adventures & fashions. This is to include Pal Mickey's disney friends fashions & adventures as well.

Pal Mickey Instructions
Information for buying blank tees for Pal Mickey can be found in post 61 on the top of page 5.


Here is Nicky in his official DDA shirt for his photo identification card.


There are three Pal Mickey's that will be venturing out into the world on their DDA (Disney Design Addicts) adventure. The pals are family members of babytrees (Theresa), my3princes (Deb) and myself (Vicki). To help keep the travels straight, each of the pals is using their middle name as a nickname. Theresa's pal is called Andy, Deb's pal is called Brooksie, and my pal is called Nicky.

Andy has already started his adventure in Vegas with KristineN. When she returns, we'll have her post some of his adventures. Nicky & Brooksie will be leaving in the next week to head to Julia & Nicks Mom and Triplefigs. When KristineN returns, she'll be sending Andy on to kc10family for the 2nd half of his May adventure. All three are booked through the end of the year with some scheduled visits into 2007. There will be a 4th pal starting his travels in June (Julia & Nicks Mom picked him up at WDW while there in May).

This is the thread where we would like anyone to post pictures or outline the pals adventures as they happen. I will be updating this post with their travel itineraries in the next couple of days. For those that take lots of digital pictures, the family members would love to get copies via e-mail or on CD. Our e-mail and mailing addresses are included in the pals luggage.

The boys are going to have so much fun! There are people already planning their itineraries.

ETA: Tommy, the 4th pal, has started his adventure with Julia & Nicks Mom. The itinerary for the pals is on post #3.

ETA 6/27/2006: Tommy contacted me and has requested that he make his permanent home with tinker1bell. He says that he loves me & my family for adopting him but thinks that tinker1bell needs him more than we do since we have Nicky. He was very convincing that tinker1bell has a very loving home so I gave my blessing.

A little history on how Pal Mickey's DDA adventure started. There was this crazy lady who posts on the DDA Trouble Free Zone thread who became addicted to her Pal Mickey and before long, many others were goners as well!

What's worse is I want Disney to come out with a Pal Minnie so I can dress a girl 'cuz there are so many cuter clothes for girls.

I am creating a webpage for my Pal Mickey. I've always wanted to play with webpages but am not ready to create one for the family (too many pictures to scan yet). Here is the link to the beginning of the webpage and a link to his pictures. Don't worry I'm being careful not to spend too much so that it interferes with my DVC plans!!!!

In all seriousness your Pal Mickey looks really happy on his own webpage.

Deb

Deb has since put in as much time getting her pal ready for his adventure. I guess she needs an intervention as well.

I have several in mind for Pal Mickey to wear on our Dec. trip. I'll post them when I get them done.

See, it was the Queen herself that made the first reference to him travelin'.

Did you ever find shirts to fit him that you can iron on? I might have to coordinate his wardrobe - hmmmm....do they make tie dye crocs that small?

He does have his own tie dye crocs now. He also has blank tees for those that want to coordinate outfits for him.

I am probably not going to get a chance to meet most of my DDA friends in person, so I was thinking about having Mickey travel around and meet you instead. You'd be responsible to take pictures, sign his passport, get him a souvenir and ship him on to the next person. I'd provide the money for the souvenirs, pictures (unless you have digital) and shipping. He is going on the DDA trip, Japan at the end of June and WDW with me in December.

If I can't meet you all, at least something that belongs to me can share in your lives for a little while. I'd add to his website with where he's been and post pictures.

Is this totally nuts?
The rest is history. There were so many DDA interested that Deb & Theresa offered to have their pals travel as well. You can also see that there were many people that contributed to the DDA adventure plans.

Andy starts his travels. We rushed him off from Colorado with stuff coming from Michigan and Vermont so that Kristine could have him for her Vegas trip.

Deb goes on a sewing spree. She made pj's shorts & pants as well as blankies for all three travelin' pals.

I ended up creating my own today and made these sleep pants. I need to locate more material in my basement in order to send a pair of pants and a pair of shorts with each one. These are what I have done so far.



Different Pattern in both pants and shorts

Nice start Vicki. My Pal aka "Brooksie" will start his travels soon. He is busy packing his luggage for his first adventure with the Figs. I'm sure he will have lots of fun. Since Denise is waiting for me to make some alterations on a halloween costume I plan to get that done and mail it all together. My goal is by week's end, but life seems to be in control of me right now instead of vice versa. As vicki said we would love to see photos, receive emails or postcards and if anyone cares to chat I know that my phone number will be included. Since I'm not able to chapperone I would love to get to know you all by any means possible. I'll post his pre trip photo once I have him properly attired and packed.

I posted this on the big (no monsters for me) thread and thought I'd copy it here!!

Got a postcard from Pal Mickey yesterday!!! The girls are so loving his adventures!! I just wanted to publicly thank Vicki once again for being the nut that started this adventure. and Thanks to all the families who want to share their vacations with Pal Mickey, you are making it a fun year!!

I can type out his postcard when I get home tonight if you would like.

I'd love to see the first postcard Theresa - could you take a photo of it to post?

I'm really looking forward to one of the boys coming to visit us in England in the summer - we've already planned to take him to the seaside for the day for fish and chips and a walk on the pier

As soon as I figure out where all my equipment is for my digital camera. I hope to find it in this weekend's spring cleaning!!

Well, Nicky has left on his adventure to Kate's. I've had him ready for a week but really had trouble letting him go. I'm going to miss him terribly. You all take really good care of him for me! He finally said, enough already, I want to go see Julia & Nick. He should be to Kate's by Wednesday. Here he is all packed up & ready to go:
