I wasn't really sure what was happening but new it had to be good! Someone then asked "Who is the family with this young girl?" and we were the only ones let under the rope!
We ended up getting a "private tour" of Mickey's house by Mickey and Minnie. (Characters aren't allowed to speak, but two cast members described the rooms to my kids.) A Disney photorapher followed us around and took tons of photos, too. We toured the house and the garden area, and were then taken into an area for private photos! My children loved the one-on-one attention with M & M (probably a good 5 minutes!). What a wonderful memory!!(I never knew about this little secret--I'm guessing it's part of the "Million Dreams" campaign.)
