Prince Mickey and Little Cinderella

I am ever grateful to always have my camera around. Shot’s like these are what I live for. Simple and beautiful especially when it was taken from The Happiest Place On Earth.

The story behind this shot was simple.  A Cowboy Mickey Mouse character (with his Minnie) made his rounds posing pictures for the fans at Disneyland Anaheim. A young Cinderella dressed princess approached for a picture and what she got was a kiss on her hand and an impromptu waltz by Mickey. The girl was so small that at one point she was stepping on Mickeys shoes to keep up. A crowd gathered around to “oooooh” and “awwwww” the adorable sight.

Halfway through the dance our Cinderella had a slipper slip, and one shoe fell off. I can tell that she was wearing a size too big “glass” slippers.  True to character, Prince-ahem Cowboy Mickey, bent down on one knee and fitted the petite princess her shoe. The crowd was cheering for her and they continued their dance.    Now who says Chivalry is dead?  This is why I love Disneyland.
