Hi! I'm new to the site and enjoy reading postings.
I was at DL on Tuesday. I was looking for a bottle of water from one of the vendor carts as I was walking through the hub in front of the castle, just a few minutes before 11am) when the park made an annoucement. It said that in 'just a few minutes' (you know how dramatic the 'disney god' is on the announcements they make, with the deep voice and such) that Mickey would climb the Matterhorn. I quickly looked through my daily entertainment schedule to see if it was listed, I thought I knew all the daily entertainment listed, and it wasn't there. My buddy and I waited around for the handful of minutes and then the music came up and about half the people around the hub turned their eyes to the Matterhorn. And, there he was about half way up, along with Goofy and Minnie. The announcer explained, in funny phrases with each word beginning with the same letter or sounding (like and now Mickey Mounts Magestic Matterhorn Mountain, get it?). Minnie did cheers that rhymed. And, finally Mickey got to the top and planted a special 50th Anniversary Flag on the top. It lasted about 15 minutes. It was funny and entertaining, a lot of kids were really excited. I suggest any true Disney fan to check it out.
My questions are: Has this been happening each day this summer? I have been there at least 12 days this summer season and not seen this?
Is this something that was just added to the 50th celebration in the past few days?
Why is it not in the schedule on the brochures or on the website?
One last note. I just happened to be in the Hub again around 2pm and they performed the Mickey's Matterhorn again.
Thanks for your time fellow Disney fans and "Have a Disney Day!!"
