    Years ago I purchase a Mickey Mouse stuffed animal that talked to you when you were in certain areas of the parks. Does this still work if I bring it when we visit in August?

    Hello Anita and thanks for bringing such a fun question to us here at planDisney!

    Oh boy!  I sure do fondly remember the plush My Pal Mickey - what a blast from the past!  I'm so happy that your very own My Pal Mickey is still a beloved treasure and prized souvenir of a past vacation to the magic of Walt Disney World Resort.

    Of course, Anita, you are more than welcome to bring along your vintage My Pal Mickey, but sadly his "magical" features will no longer activate when visiting the Disney Theme Parks. 

    As Walt Disney once famously said, “We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we're curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.".  With this grand Disney tradition in mind, almost every Guest now has the magical powers of My Pal Mickey right in the palm of their own hands with the My Disney Experience Mobile App.

    Technology truly has moved on in leaps and bounds since My Pal Mickey stopped functioning within the Disney Theme Parks several yEARs ago.  Now with the My Disney Experience Mobile App downloaded on to their smart devices Guests can easily navigate the Disney Theme Parks with the inbuilt GPS map, order food via Mobile  Food & Beverage Ordering, and Guests can even unlock their Resort hotel room door with the My Disney Experience Mobile App and so, SO much more besides!

    Anita, I understand that this may not be the news you were hoping to hEAR, but it still makes my heart happy to know that you have treasured your My Pal Mickey all these yEARs!  If you should have any further questions about your upcoming August vacation to Walt Disney World Resort, then please do give me a little whistle at planDisney.  I'm always happy to help wherever I am able.

    Have a great Disney day ~ Jane
