    I didn't get mine, but I looked at it online.

    Yippee!! We'll be there during the free one day rental of Pal Mickey. I have a feeling that I'll be taking my new little buddy home with me.;)

    I have to ask; I am not the DVC member in my extended family, so I don't get to see Vacation Magic. Could anyone briefly explain what Pal Mickey is, and when he/it is available?
    Thanks!

    i haven't received mine yet. I haven't received my Spring Disney Magazine yet either. Has anyone received theirs? I know this is not the place to discuss this, but I don't know where to pose this question. Any help will be appreciated. Can't wait to get my Vacation Magic.

    I just read the article on-line and I'm not sure I can tell you what it is! LOL! It appears to be a stuffed Mickey that will be able to serve as a guide around the parks, even reminding you of parade times. He will be available for rent or for sale. DVC members are being offered a free trial (with a $50 deposit) starting May 1 so I assume that's when Pal Mickey will debut. I'm not quite sure I "get" what it's all about.

    Now, how did VM get delivered in Scotland before CT? LOL!!!

    Our family was asked to test the Plush Mickey back in October 2001 and give our opinion. I have been waiting for him to officially come out ever since, we signed a confidentiality agreement and were given $50 Disney Dollars to test him and tell them what we thought and give suggestions It was really cool and the kids enjoyed it. They have sensors all around the park so that Mickey knows exactly where he is. He will tell you things based on where you are in the park.

    PamOKW... I was afraid someone would show up at my door in black coats and drag me away if I told. I am really glad they have released it now so I can talk, it has been difficult.

    Patpat15... This is a plush talking Mickey that will be avaliable at the parks this spring to either rent or purchase. There are sensors installed around the parks that Mickey kind of "reads". Like when we were over at Peter Pan, he told us "hey, there is no line accross the street at Its a small World, why don't you head over there next". He will also tell you trivia and start times of parades.

    It was really cool and the best part was they paid me to try him out, I would have paid them!

    After reading the thread, I was curious. So I visited the members site and previewed the Vacation Magic. We'll be at WDW during the trial, free day offer. Think I'll try it out!

    BTW, weather in South Louisiana was 75-ish yesterday! Had the AC on at work. Rained heavily today and will be cooler, high 50's tomorrow!

    O-o-o-o-o, Terry, you guys sure were lucky! Like Pam, I'm amazed at your ability to keep it quiet.

    With the deposit being $50, I wonder what the purchase price will be. I just know the little fella's going to have to come home with us.

    Pat

    293 days and counting . . . again!
