Even if your parents are Penélope Cruz and Javier Bardem, Mickey Mouse is still a pretty big deal.

Cruz and Bardem brought their 2-year-old son, Leo, to the Disney Live! Mickey’s Music Festival at The Theater at Madison Square Garden on Thursday.

Leo was “over the moon” to meet Mickey Mouse backstage, an onlooker tells PEOPLE. “Their little boy was beyond excited that Mickey Mouse was actually standing right in front of him – and not on TV.”

The proud parents – who are expecting their second child – took pictures of Leo hugging Mickey and “got a kick out of how excited he was to meet Mickey Mouse.”
