Disneyland’s Mickey Mouse Penthouse (4 pics)

Disneyland’s Mickey Mouse Penthouse is the ultimate “Mouse Pad.” Decorated with classic Mickey Mouse imagery and three-dimensional artwork, the 1,600 sq ft penthouse includes an open living room, dining and kitchen area, two bedrooms, and two and one-half bathrooms. Photos and sketches from the Disney library are prominently displayed, featuring images of Walt and Mickey rarely seen by the public. My favorite part of the penthouse is the living room, where a giant impression of Mickey Mouse fills the ceiling, as glowing lights enhance the mood of the room. The formal dining area seats eight guests. A built-in media wall is the focal point of the living room, featuring three flat screen TVs and a state-of-the-art home theater system. The master bedroom is filled with luxury amenities including a king-size bed, lounge chairs, and a 37? flat panel TV. The master bath includes a steam shower, Jacuzzi tub, and a built-in TV in the mirror. The main "conversation piece" in the second bedroom is a cutting-edge animator's station, a high-tech table that adds to the Mickey Mouse and animation-inspired storyline. The desk helps budding artists take sketching to a whole new level as they draw their favorite character and watch them come to life through the magic of Disney technology.

Like many dance photographers, Mohamed Taher has a knack for beautifully capturing the body in motion. His interest in movement is evident in his Ballerinas of Cairo series, and the captivating collection of photos also serves a more poignant purpose: it helps women fight sexual harassment and reclaim the city’s streets. After learning about the Ballerina Project, an ongoing series that documents dancers in urban settings across the globe, Taher was inspired to carry out a similar undertaking in the Egyptian capital.
