Nov. 18 was a big day for Mickey Mouse fans at Tokyo Disneyland — and a long one. It was the 90th anniversary of Mickey’s debut, and the character was at the theme park’s Mickey’s House to meet his fans at the Meet Mickey attraction.
But so many people came to meet Mickey that some had to wait for 11 hours to enter the house, according to fans.
At one point, a sign in the theme park outside Mickey’s House said “660 minutes.” The sign let people know how long they may have to wait to enter the attraction.
Oriental Land Co., the theme park operator, did not organize a special event at the attraction, “Mickey’s House and Meet Mickey.” Visitors can see Mickey’s kitchen and living room. They can also ask for a photo with Mickey.
“There is no official record but we are not aware of any waiting time reaching 11 hours” before, said a spokesman for Oriental Land Co. (Kyodo)
