Alright, I watched the video and the repair made sense. My mechanic had disconnected the cable but it was still sitting in the same spot where it caused the problem.
I didn't have any bag ties in the house so I put the cruise control cable back in place as demonstrated in the video and wrapped electrical tape around the connection. That seems to have done the trick - I took the car out for a drive and it seemed to work perfectly. I got it up to about 80kmh and the revs came down as soon as I took my foot off of the gas.
This should do the trick until the part arrives at my mechanic's shop. The car is needed Tuesday, and possibly Monday as well, so it should drive fine on those days even if the part still hasn't arrived from Ford.
Thanks for posting that video, it was a great help.
