    I have a PAL Mickey , but the poor guy seems to have lost his power of speech ( its making him sad ) Do you guys do services for them ?

    Hi there Paul! Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. I'd be happy to assist you today.

    My Pal Mickey - what a fun trip down memory lane! I remember this adorable little friend that would offer helpful theme park information, provide fun facts, and even crack a few jokes as you explored the Walt Disney World Resort. Why did Mickey Mouse go to outer space? To find Pluto of course!

    This interactive plush was discontinued in 2008 and stopped functioning in the theme parks around 2014. Unfortunately, I don't have any magical pixie-dust to help restore My Pal Mickey back to his former glory. I wish I had access to a new voice box to get him speaking again, but I surely wouldn't want to take one from another friend like Gabby Gabby did in Toy Story 4. Fortunately, with MyMagic+, there are so many new ways to experience location based, interactive fun in the Walt Disney World Theme Parks and Resort Hotels

    While My Pal Mickey provided advice on attractions - "I hear there's no wait for Pirates of the Caribbean" - these days, this information is in the palm of your hands with the My Disney Experience mobile app. No need for My Pal Mickey to point out that Belle is in France waiting to share tales of adventure with you; My Disney Experience provides updated, on-the-go character tips and times. 

    If you're still wishing upon a star for interactive theme park fun and trivia, you'll want to download the Play Disney Parks App. While using this app, family and friends can enjoy in-queue games and other experiences while waiting in line at select attractions. It's a great way to pass the time in line for a few of my favorites like Peter Pan's Flight and Soarin' Around the World. As with My Pal Mickey, some features, like Disney trivia, even work at home, so you can enjoy a bit of magic in your daily life.

    I hope this has helped you discover some ways to recapture the fun and whimsy that your old friend provided. Thanks for reminding me of fun times with one of Walt Disney World's most unique souvenEARs! Stop back and see us again anytime you're dreaming of your next magical vacation. We love to help plan!

    Hope to see ya real soon,
