Donald tries to go to Pleasure Island, but the Coachman thinks he's a spy and chases him with guns. While he is escaping he wishes he was Jiminy's size and that Jiminy was his size. That's the second wish and after a short chase, Donald wishes he was a real boy again. He ends up back in his own bed, waking up from a dream. Or was it only a dream?
