The Little Man of Disneyland

Did you know about The Little Man of Disneyland? It’s a Little Golden Book about Patrick Begorra the leprechaun. It was published in 1955, the same year Disneyland opened. He lives in a tiny house at the root of a tree in the park. You can find the tree in Adventureland. Keep your eyes open, it can be hard to spot! It’s so fun to look for, though!


When we found his little house, someone had left a surprise! It’s not uncommon to find hidden gifts that people leave behind for others to find throught the parks both here and in Florida. We noticed someone had left this cute little ornament behind for someone else to find and take home with them. It was glass, and we would have had no way to get it home safely, so we left it behind for the next person to find. What a fun souvenier!

Be sure to look for Patrick Begorra’s little house next time you are in Disneyland!

I am a mom of 2 boys ages 11 and 14, and have been married to my wonderfully supportive husband, Brian for 14 years. I work full time in the billing department of a large opthamolgy practice in Michigan. I have not just a love for all things Disney that started from birth. My boys sometimes call it my Disney problem, but my husband and I fondly refer to it as my Disney passion. I have a side gig as a travel advisor. I can help plan almost any vacation, but as you can guess, I specialize in Disney and Universal.
