The Little Man of Disneyland and His Adventureland Home

The Little Man of Disneyland

Have you ever noticed the tiny house built into the trunk of a tree in Adventureland at Disneyland park? Many guests have wondered who its diminutive resident could be.


Well, our friends at D23—Disney’s official fan club—have the answer! The story of the Little Man of Disneyland, Patrick Begorra, was first told in one of the Disney Little Golden Books. Published in 1955 – the same year Disneyland opened – “The Little Man of Disneyland” introduced the leprechaun, who lives in a tiny house at the roots of a Disneyland tree.
