Background Info For Mickey Mouse:
Mickey Mouse is an animated character that Walt Disney and Ub Iwerks created in 1928. He is an anthropomorphic mouse. Notably, he is a cheerful optimist with an adventurous and mischievous streak. In fact, estimated as standing 2′ 3″ (69 centimeters) and weighing 23 pounds (10 kilograms), Mickey is easily identified by his round ears, red shorts, falsetto voice, white gloves and cartoonishly large yellow shoes.
For 90 years, Mickey has been the cornerstone of the Disney empire. His success paved the way for numerous breakthroughs in both the art of animation and the entertainment industry. Mickey’s significance in pop culture came simultaneously with his public debut in Steamboat Willie. Indeed, in his first film, he wowed audiences with his cheerful smile and scampish personality.
From there, Mickey rapidly rose to the top of American culture. In fact, The Mouse is the most popular and recognizable cartoon character in the world. He’s since appeared in over 130 films and has received a combined eleven honors from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. In 1978, Mickey became the first fictional character to get a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Background For Sorcerer Mickey Mouse:
Sorcerer Mickey Mouse is the magical form of Mickey Mouse, and his most famous role. Further, Mickey Mouse as a sorcerer first appeared as the main character in the animated 1940 film Fantasia. By the time Fantasia started to be made, audiences were annoyed because Mickey had nothing but good luck unlike his friends Donald Duck and Goofy. Importantly, when audiences started to ignore Mickey, Walt Disney decided to cast him as the main character in the film Fantasia. In fact, the plan worked and Mickey once again became popular. Notably, Mickey was also given a new design. His circle body was changed into a pear shape and his nose became smaller and fans say Disney made him cuter. Thus, Mickey was transformed into a magical character that most people see today.
Background Info For The Great Movie Ride

Overview/History Of The Great Movie Ride:
If you’re a movie buff, you didn’t want to miss seeing some old favorites in the Great Movie Ride. Noteworthy, Disney housed this attraction in a full-scale replica of Hollywood’s legendary Graumann’s Chinese Theater. Also, hand, foot (and paw) prints of popular Disney stars and characters were in the cement outside the theater.
Importantly, the line for the Great Movie Ride was one of the more entertaining lines to wait on. Indeed, the theater “lobby” really impressed the guests. For instance, the first part featured movie memorabilia such as the carousel horse from Mary Poppins and one of the three pairs of ruby slippers from the Wizard of Oz. Next, you weaved back and forth while watching movie clips on the big screen. Notably, some of these were a glimpse of what The ride recreated inside.
From here, you entered a cavernous set where “ushers” directed you to the large trams. In fact, these were actually two sets of trams that split up early into the show. Noteworthy, depending on which section you were in, either a gangster or a Western bandit hijacked your tram while your hapless host/hostess was left behind.
