In this scene, Karen and Pegasus are no more than a few minutes into their exploration of Disneyland, when they get the feeling that not only are they welcome, but that the place has its own magic. Thanks, again, to yesterland.com for their historical photos. This is a scan of a photo of the Red Wagon Inn as it would have appeared.
Scene 1: Karen and Pegasus Begin Their Disneyland Adventure
“Pegasus! Let’s explore,” she said.
Her faithful steed mosied to Main Street. He walked carefully, so he would not bump into the other guests and the cast members dressed as Disney characters. Mickey and Minnie held hands and skipped along beside them. Donald Duck waved and squawked. Snow White waved one white-gloved hand and blew a kiss to Pegasus. He whinnied and pranced.
When they got to Main Street, a barbershop quartet standing in front of the Red Wagon Restaurant broke into the theme song from Mister Ed. Pegasus did a little dance, as they sang, “A horse is a horse, of course, of course, and no one can talk to a horse, of course, unless the horse is the famous Mister Ed!”
Karen leaned forward and whispered into his ear, “This place really is magical, and we both fit in.”
