Disneyland 2014 - Toontown

This is a classic moment.  One I've never captured on camera before. On our way to Toontown, we stopped by to say hi to Woody.  Troy and Teo had talked about hugging Woody all day.  Troy had hugged him last year and Teo was afraid to do so.  So he was mentally preparing himself all day to go up and hug Woody when we saw him.  And on queue, Woody was right where we expected him to be.  And this photo documents the moment where it dawns on Teo that he was not going to be able to convince himself to get out of the stroller again this year.
It is dawning on him that he wasn't going to be able to do it.  You can see it in his eyes.

But he's only 3 and I can tell you what:  He will be thinking about this moment every month this year and when we come back when he's 4,  I have no doubt he will hug Woody!  He will conquer his fear and it will be a landmark point in his young life.  It will give him courage in the coming years.  A rare moment caught on camera.

All the adults got a kick out of this.  Pluto had to hold the signature book this close to sign it.

The baby looks like it is crying, but in reality it was laughing and really really thrilled to be touching Pluto's nose.
Mickey's house!  Let's go in...

We had just walked by a huge mirror on the wall that frightened Teo really bad.  I couldn't figure out why, but later on my wife told me that the figure of the evil queen from Snow White appeared in the mirror.  That would have frightened me too.
To get a photo with Mickey, we waited in this movie room attached to Mickey's house.  We slowly made our way forward and had the photo taken.  (see last photo in this post)
