    A couple years ago, while my husband and i were on our wedding anniversary vacation at WDW, near the castle at magic kingdom we saw mickey mouse playing with some kids in the grass area thats fenced off. Is that something you book?

    Greetings Ashley!  (love the name!)

    Having time to run around with Mickey Mouse in front of Cinderella Castle seems like a dream come true for any child (including the young at heart)!  

    As far as I am aware, this is not a character interaction that can be booked or planned.  My guess is what you witnessed was a "Magical Moment" (or as I like to call them-"Random Acts of Pixie Dust").  These moments happen randomly around Walt Disney World Resort with Cast Members and characters alike.  There's no rhyme or reason as to when and why they happen,  which makes them all the more special.  Think of it as an extra special sprinkling of pixie dust!  

    I was lucky enough to experience one of these Magical Moments on my honeymoon.  We were pulled off of The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror by a fantastically creepy bellhop at the Hollywood Tower Hotel and told a man named "Freddie" wanted to see us.  We were transferred to another elevator and rode all by ourselves!  At the end of the ride, we were presented with a small certificate commemorating the moment.  It 's definitely something we'll never forget!

    Thank you so much for your question, Ashley!  Have a magical day!
