M is for Mouse!

The kid in me just couldn't resist a trip to Tokyo Disneyland to visit my two favorite mice in the whole wide world! Minnie Mouse and Mickey Mouse.

It was one fine spring day when the family decided to visit Tokyo Disneyland. We were greeted by Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse and the gang with a short welcome parade.

Beaver Monk gave us his blessings and posed with us. Behind us is the famous Merry-Go-Round.

Would you believe that this Mural is made of glass? Reminiscent of the story of Cinderella, this Mural depicts a scene from the Grand Ball. Cinderella was on the run, leaving behind her glass slipper.

Celebrating 25 Years of Tokyo Disneyland, the Jubilation Parade showcases your most beloved Disney characters from Mulan to Mickey and Minnie to DuMbo to the Mermaids and more... And here is Minnie in her royal gown. Look who is accompanying her! No other than her fairy godMother.

Of course, our visit will not be coMplete without visiting Toontown, more particularly, Minnie's and Mickey's houses. And because they are so famous, you Must wait in line for 60 Minutes or More just so you can enter their charMing hoMes.

First stop was Minnie's house. And while we were waiting in line, we decided to get a shot near Minnie's charming windows.

It was almost dark when we finished touring Minnie's house. And off we go again to stand in line for the next stop.

What??? We so badly wanted to Meet Mickey that day! But this sign says you Must wait for another 45 Minutes before you can enter and finally see hiM! Whew! At this Moment, I was all aching feet and baby Sam was getting a little gruMpy.

And here's Mickey's Mailbox! I bet it contains all sorts of Mail froM his fans around the world, not to Mention those Mushy love Memos from Minnie. :D

FInally, the faMily was able to Meet Mickey Mouse! Garbed in his wizard robe, it reMinded Me of Fantasia... And look at us - we were all beaMing and quite excited to have finally Met Mickey except for our baby, who at this tiMe was wailing due Mainly to exhaustion. Or perhaps she got scared of Mickey's big ears, big eyes, big Mouth, big nose and all.

So was it all worth it? You bet it is! After all Meeting Mickey Mouse was why we caMe to Tokyo Disneyland for!
