    Minnie's House in Toontown looks just like what you might imagine the world's most famous mouse girl's house would look like, cute pink and lavender bungalow. The cute fest starts at the heart-shaped gate set into a pink picket fence. Look for the heart-shaped windows and the bow on the mailbox.

    Inside you can check out Minnie's reading material which includes magazines like Mademousele and Cosmousepolitan. You might also notice that she has been browsing the Jessica's Secret catalog. All of the rooms have interactive features if you look for them.

    In the kitchen, you'll find every cheese know to "mouse-kind" in the Cheesemore refrigerator.

    You can walk through Minnie's place, but may not be home. She is usually at breakfast at the Plaza Inn. She goes out to be in the parade, and she often leaves in the early afternoon. Check your favorite app or the daily schedule sheet you get at the entrance to find out her hours. If she's away when you call, you'll have to find her somewhere else in the park.

    • When Minnie is greeting guests at home, think of a fun question to ask, and you might get to linger a little longer while she answers it. Her birthday is November 18 (the same day as Mickey's), so that would be a good day to say Happy Birthday.
    • Kids especially like Minnie's kitchen, where you'll find a cake baking. You can make it rise and fall by turning a knob. Try the microwave to make things "pop."
    • Check out the details: the names of books in the bookshelf, notes on the refrigerator and the "diet" cookies. As you go out the back door, look at the cupboard on your right you will find a book entitled,"Elvis: What Happened?
    • Look for hidden Mickeys. In her craft room, there's one in the portrait of Clarabelle Cow. 
    • Make a wish in the wishing well out back. Say it out loud, and you might hear someone talking back to you.
    • If you look closely at the hills behind Minnie's House, you may notice that the trees are shaped like the letters WDI. That stands for Walt Disney Imagineering.
    • During the holidays, Minnie puts up a silver and pink tree in her front yard. You might notice a hidden Mickey on top of it.
    • Reviewers at Yelp give Minnie's House a high rating, but not quite as high as Mickey's House next door. They say things like "it's absolutely darling" and "worth waiting for if it makes your kid happy just for a moment." You can read more of their reviews here.
