Eleanor turned four this month, and Disneyland was what her heart desired. Seeing the expressions on her face when she met Mickey Mouse, and her favorites characters were priceless. Join us for a fun filled day at the “happiest place on earth.”
Our first stop was Toontown, where Pluto greeted us. Pluto, also called Pluto the Pup, is a cartoon dog created in 1930 at Walt Disney Productions. Walt was inspired to create Disney’s top dog by remembering the personable pooches he met while living on the farm in his childhood home of Marceline, Missouri. Ever since Pluto has, as Walt put it, been “working hard and trying, but usually not succeeding, in staying out of trouble.” Pluto is Mickey’s pet.
Meeting Alice was Eleanor’s favorite experience. Alice in Wonderland is a 1951 American animated musical fantasy-adventure film produced by Walt Disney Productions and based on the Alice books by Lewis Carroll. The 13th of Disney’s animated features, the film premiered in New York City and London on July 26, 1951. The Mad Hatter wished Eleanor the happiest of birthdays.
A day at the Magic Kingdom is not enough time to see all Disneyland has to offer, but we made the most of it. “It’s a Small World,” walking with the “Beast,” meeting “Snow White, Rapunzel, Cinderella, and Minnie Mouse,” riding in the tea cups, pictures, popcorn and souvenirs made this the best day ever!
