When Coco Met Minnie Mouse- A Love Story

In honor of Coco's 2nd birthday we visited the house of the mouse. It was Landon, Coco and MY first visit. Yes I know, how could this be? I'm not big on crowds, or rides....I digress.

Coco had the time of her life from the start. She was delighted by the sounds and look of Disneyland. Little did she know she was going to meet her idol!

We went to Toon Town and bestie had saved a place for us in line. In THE LINE. THE LINE TO MEET MINNIE MOUSE. At first it was fine, but then Coco caught site of her. "Meenie Mow!!! Meenie Mow!" she squealed. She tried to charge the line, circumvent the system, but there were way too many six year old girls blocking her path. She would have to wait, the unbelievably long ten minutes. She screamed, she wailed, she tried to claw my eyes out. People stared, she didn't care. She had to get to her.

Suddenly we were one person away. It was almost cruel to be this close. Coco cried and cried for her "Meenie Mow", but then, the seas parted, Minnie was in full view. I carried Coco over to meet her one true love...and I promptly handed my child over to her.

Yes that is me falling apart at the site of my child living her dream. I was a mess. Coco began kissing Minnies nose.

It was hard to interrupt her, she really just wanted kisses and no picture. Alas she finally turned for the long awaited shot.
But really she wanted to stare at her.


I cried on the "It's A Small World ride too, but that's another story. Thank goodness for sunglasses!

Hey! I'm sorry it has been so long since I've been by.

Love this! I definitely get how you would tear up seeing your precious babe meeting a favorite.

And I hear you on the crowds, but I can't wait to take my little one to Disneyland one day - such a Southern California childhood institution!
