# Maximizing Mickey Mouse

Course project

## Description

Mickey Mouse draws crowds from all across the world to Walt Disney World, and the desire to meet him results in long wait times.To minimize these times, we would like to see how many friends of Mickey (people in Mickey Mouse costumes) we can place throughout the Magic Kingdom theme park. Since the experience of meeting Mickey Mouse becomes devalued if a visitor sees two Mickey characters at the same time, we want to avoid this situation. We use a graph theory approach to determine the maximum number of Mickeys and their locations in the Magic Kingdom under the condition that no two Mickeys can be seen at once.
