We took Boy Wonder to Disneyland for the first time when he was 3 years old. He had but one goal in mind that day, to meet Mickey Mouse.
Now as you know Mickey Mouse is a pretty famous dude err, mouse and children from all over the world flock to Disneyland to meet him in person. Although we were Orange County locals, we were there to meet him too and it was going to be grand.
Now maybe my husband and I didn’t know what we were doing (wouldn’t be the first time), but we had no idea where to find Mickey Mouse. We scoured Toon Town, perused Mickey’s house and yet he was nowhere to be found. Disneyland autograph book and jumbo Mickey pen in hand, Boy Wonder patiently followed his clueless parents as we traipsed all over Disneyland looking for the mouse in charge. While we were lucky enough to have a chance encounter with Pluto and Winnie the Pooh, we unfortunately left that day without Mickey’s autograph.
