The folks at DisneyWorld have a clever, new way of keeping guests happy and content in the Magic Kingdom -- "Pal Mickey." This ten-inch plush Mickey Mouse is actually a portable information kiosk, providing guests with news on park attractions, the length of lines, tidbits on Magic Kingdom history and more.

The doll is packed full of the latest advances in wireless communication technology, and functions in all four of the Disney Florida Resorts.

Get you minds out of the gutter! It's Mickey for pete's sake!
