Chronology Kingdom Hearts


Donald and Goofy lead Sora to the Gummi Ship. While marveling in the ship's features, he is stopped by two chipmunks. Donald introduces them as Chip and Dale, the ship's mechanics. As they enter the cockpit, a cricket garbed in grand captain attire, introduces himself as Jiminy Cricket. The Gummi Ship blasts off, shortly arriving at a new world.

The trio literally fall down a hole into this new world, where they see a White Rabbit. This White Rabbit hurries past them, mentioning how he is late. Donald stands up, telling the group to follow the rabbit.

Miscellaneous trivia[edit]

  • As Sora first enters the Gummi Ship, Chip and Dale hit him with a mop, telling Sora not to make a mess of the place.
  • Before the group enters Wonderland, Goofy and Donald tell Sora to look to the left and right of the Gummi Ship. Sora later adds to look down.
