It’s no secret that I love Disneyland, and part of the reason is that they always seem to come up with new ways to make every experience magical. Tokyo Disney Resort seems to be the most innovative of the parks because they truly love to make guests feel special. It was at this park that custodians first came up with the crowd pleasing idea of painting characters on the ground with water, so it makes sense that they came up with something just as remarkable for people to gawk at while parking their cars.
In the video above, you can see cast members methodically dropping traffic cones in the parking lot. At first, it looks ordinary: conducting the many miles of cars in a long queue for parking. But with a few minor adjustments here and there, suddenly the cones start to take shape—a familiar, mouse-like shape.
It should be noted that these cast members are extremely efficient. Even though the video is sped up you can still tell that guy in the back of the truck is laying down those cones like nobody’s business. Traffic maneuvering is no easy task.
In the end the cones take their final form as a large, easily identifiable Mickey Mouse head. Then comes the sweetest part of the video when the cast members wave to the arriving guests on the monorail.

The official Tokyo Disneyland Resort youtube channel also released a video of the same parking CMs putting together a traffic cone homage to Duffy the Disney Bear, who is hugely popular overseas, almost more so that Mickey Mouse.
Would you smile more if the traffic cones directing you were in the shape of Mickey Mouse? Let us know in the comments!
