Inside the queue is an exhibit titled “Mickey Through the Ears,” featuring artifacts and replicas from Mickey’s history. Right as guests enter, they are greeted by the “Steamboat Willie” ship wheel. Hanging from the ceiling is the plane from “Plane Crazy.” “Plane Crazy” was the first film produced starring Mickey and Minnie, but “Steamboat Willie” premiered first.
