"I only hope that we don't lose sight of one thing - that it was all started by a mouse."
Hi there! I'm Kirsten, just another 20-something year old (princess) with an affinity for all things Disney. I have a Disneyland annual pass, an unhealthy obsession for Mickey Mouse, encyclopedia-like knowledge of Disney movies, and way too much time on my hands. Add that all up and you get Mickeyandminnie!

calitexanunwritten: You were like the very first blog I followed when I got a Tumblr. I am going to WDW for the very first time in the next 11 days and am super nervous. I have only ever been to Disneyland in CA (where I am from) and then briefly visited Disney Paris this past summer. Any suggestions/tips? I hope it lives up to my expectations and blows Disneyland out of the water (even though Disneyland is like my entire childhood).
ha-lay-na: Following you on instagram was one of the best decisions I have ever made! I love every one of your photos. It's like, a little taste of heaven (aka disneyland) every time they pop up on my feed. It's truly a breath of fresh air. Thanks so much for sharing Disneyland with us, Kirstie! You da best gurl
joycouture: Hi Kirsten! I go to a University about 15 minutes away from Disneyland and just bought my Annual Pass (YAY!). I was thinking of trying to go to Disneyland to do homework, making hw 10000x more fun! I was wondering where you think would be the best study spots in Disneyland and California Adventure? Also I love little cozy cafes, are there any there I should check out? Thank you!
Doing homework at Disneyland = BEST IDEA EVER.
Here are just some of my favorite cozy potential study spots:
The picnic tables + chairs behind the corn dog stand along Main Street [i.e., where I was sitting when I took this shot]. It’s relatively secluded and right near the Cast Member entrance so you often see characters walking in and out.
The Hungry Bear restaurant in Critter County. I love to hang out here and feed the duckies while watching everyone walk by on their way to and from Splash Mountain.
The Court of Angels in New Orleans Square. [Admittedly, it’s not quite as hidden or forgotten as it once was since they often use it for character picture ops now, but I still love it.]
The pathway behind Thunder Mountain that leads to Fantasyland. It’s usually very quiet and lined with benches where you can rest and get work done.
The tables outside the Riverbelle Terrace [i.e., where I took this shot]. Perfect for people watching or homework doing.
My advice? Go exploring! I’m sure you’ll find tons of little Disneyland nooks & crannies that’ll make doing homework seem like blessing, not a chore. :)
Animation Academy (the room with the screens and the medley of Disney song perfection), the benches lining the walkway between the Boardwalk and the Silly Symphony Swings, the tables way in the corner behind the little shack that sells clam chowder in front of Haunted Mansion…
Just go down Buena Vista Street, make a left into the Hollywood Backlot and then make your way halfway down the street to the Animation Academy. Inside you’ll find the Sorcerer’s Workshop, along with a lot of other cool semi-hidden goodies, like the Toy Story zoetrope and Turtle Talk with Crush.
