Where's Mickey?

"I only hope that we never lose sight of one thing, that it was all started by a mouse." - Walt Disney




Now that C-man is 18 months old, he is learning new things everyday. We watch at least 1 episode of Mickey Mouse Clubhouse every morning while he drinks his morning milk. He can properly identify Mickey Mouse, Goofy and Donald Duck. He knows Pluto is a dog, but hasn't caught on that his name is Pluto! This accomplishment has made me very excited about our upcoming trip in December! I have prepared myself that he will probably be scared to death of the actual characters, so I started thinking of the other ways he can experience the Fab 5... and I'm not getting too far.

Now that Toontown Fair has been closed for the Fantasyland Expansion, there aren't many ways to experience Mickey and his friends. Here's what I've come up with... help me if you have other suggestions:

~Town Square Exposition Hall at MK shows old Mickey cartoons.
~Mickey's Philharmagic at MK
~The Magic of Disney Animation at DHS, kinda. I guess if you choose to draw a character, you can make it one of the 5.
~Playhouse Disney at DHS. This is what I'm most looking forward to!

Besides 2 attractions at MK and 2 at DHS, I am at a loss. I can't believe there isn't any ride/ attraction at any of the 4 parks that is centered around Mickey Mouse and his friends (besides the above.) Remember, I'm not counting character dining or meet and greets. I'm pretty sure C-man will be scared! Camp Minnie Mickey and the Epcot Character Spot are great for connecting with the Fab 5, but still it's not an attraction in my eyes. I'll restate what I started with:
