When MissMalini got the invite from Disney Channel to join a junket to Hong Kong Disneyland, there was only one person who she could think of sending – Me!

Those who know me know my love for cartoons, anime and animation! So when she told me to pack my bags, I was so thrilled, I almost jumped over the moon.

Of course, since its Disney Channel, the entire trip was organised around a contest – Disney’s Jet Set Go! People had to enter a contest while watching the channel and had to give a missed call to a certain number. The ones who gave the most missed calls, won an all expenses paid trip to Hong Kong Disneyland, along with their family members.

But going to Disneyland – “The happiest place on earth” – is not a simple get-up-and-go procedure. There has to be some drama and celebration around the entire journey. So the folks at Disney have hired a special Jet Airways aircraft which has been specially painted with Disney’s most iconic characters on it – Donald Duck, Daisy Duck and Goofy. It was unveiled earlier today in Mumbai with all the winners and their families in attendance. The event was hosted by Shruti Seth.

The children were hugely excited and apart from posing with the plane in the background, they also posed with their favourite stars from Disney Channel’s TV shows. Among them were Cyrus Broacha and Siddharth Coutto.

And finally, to add a huge dollop of excitement, Disney’s most famous lovers, Mickey and Minnie Mouse made an appearance as well. They were a just a teaser to what people can expect at Disneyland, tomorrow and day-after!
