Guess who's coming to Fantasyland?

June 8, 2009, 10:16 AM · Here's an insider's tip for Walt Disney World visitors...

If you're an on-property hotel guest staying up late with the kids in the Magic Kingdom for "Extra Magic Hours," you might want to hang around 'til about midnight.

Why? You never know who might show up to join you for your last ride of the night. (Hint: Bring cheese. Lots of cheese.)

If we do this, we'll definitely have to see who we can find. Any particular place the mouse might be? Our son and niece are both age 12 and I don't see them hanging around Fantasyland.

I was there last night!
