There is this Little Golden Book, written in 1955. It tells the story of the birth of Disneyland and the little man who lived INSIDE the park. Yes, he LIVES there! Still, to this very day! You CAN still find his home.
I was convinced it had gone away, that I would never find it. Or I figured it was in Walt Disney World, NOT Land. So when Cassie and I were ‘home’ this November, I went on a Little Man’s house hunt.
And I found his house. It is in Adventure Land, right near the Indiana Jones Ride.
And once we found it, I started squealing. I was so excited! It was THERE! I FOUND IT!
And because of my commotion, so did everyone else. You can see the picture above…once I got excited, everyone climbed through the strollers to take a gander. Wonder what they would have done if I would have made that much notice about the Disney cats I saw this trip. However, there were people taking pictures of them. I found that strange.
It honestly isn’t easy to find. I had to search. People looked at me oddly. But I’m so glad I just did it! I almost gave up!

Imagine if you will…
It is 3:57 am…you just climbed into bed. You’re exhausted and you know the kids will be up in a few short hours. Your goal is to catch some zzzz’s before ‘Santa’ comes and the kids jump on you.
Nope. Kids jump on you at 3:58 am. Been there done that. And they are so excited…they is no way they are going back to sleep! They drag you out to the family room, squealing about what Santa has brought them.
It is a small box. About the size of a Little Golden Book. They look a little disappointed…but hope remains as they rip the paper to shreds!
“It’s a book” is all you get….but you smile because you know what it means.
“What’s the title?” You ask, slyly.
“Little Man of Disneyland.”
“Hmm, he lived IN Disneyland?”
“According to the book. This is horrible!”
“Well, how about we go visit him and ask him why he gave us a simple book for Christmas.”
“But he LIVES in Disneyland. We’d have to go there.”
Now you wait as the light shines in their eyes and they start jumping up and down and screaming!
BEST CHRISTMAS EVER!
