K’s abiding love of all things Disney found a new outlet this fall, as our friends Christy and Laura introduced us to the phenomenon known as MouseAdventure, a scavenger hunt through Disneyland. M joined K, Laura, and Jamie to form a team (against his better judgment? perhaps) and we headed up to the park on a sunny Sunday in late September, bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, and ready to go hunting! We had met previously to make our team t-shirts to go with our team name: we were the Caterpillar Kidz, in honor of Toy Story 3’s infamous playroom where non-age-appropriate toys go to be destroyed by small children, and so each of our shirts had a character from the movie drawn onto it. K’s was Mr Potato Head!
On the day of the Adventure, the three girls all added little-kid pigtails and facepaint to add to the effect, and we were ready to go!
We took one team picture before the Adventure kicked off, and from that moment until we were done, no cameras allowed. So you’ll just have to take our word for it: MouseAdventure was QUITE an experience. There were definitely some frustrating moments, but we ended up doing quite well, plus we spent the rest of the afternoon and evening enjoying the park’s Halloween decorations, riding as many rides as we could, and basically having a fantastic time.
