  1. Did Mickey Sign a Prenup?

    Mickey and Minnie are headed for a divorce—from PhotoPass.

    Disneyland’s Entertainment Division had merged its PhotoPass and Character departments in late 2009. The idea was to facilitate the photographers working even more closely with the characters—much to
