Hey Thrill Seekers,
Now here’s one for your diaries.. The Big Cheese, Mickey Mouse will be celebrating his 89th birthday on Saturday the 18th November (doesn’t seem to age does he, wonder what skincare regime he uses) and wants as many people as possible to celebrate with him. You will be able to join in on the fun at all of the Disney parks around the world!
Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando will be celebrating with very special “Happy Birthday, Mickey!” buttons, a Sorcerer Mickey Cake and lots more merchandise. Guests will also be able to sing and dance along with “Happy Birthday” during Move It! Shake It! Dance & Play It!, Cosmic Dance Party in Tomorrowland and performances by the Dapper Dans. Also, no birthday party would be complete without photo props. These props will be available at all four of the parks for guests to capture this special occasion. Another birthday surprise is that everyone who collects their photos at the parks will receive a folder with a commemorative sticker, how lovely. 😀
Disneyland Resort will host a celebration procession for Mickey Mouse, featuring some of his special friends and the Disneyland Band. It will start at “it’s a small world” pausing for a special moment at Sleeping Beauty Castle before continuing down Main Street, U.S.A., to Town Square. There will be plenty of chances to sing “Happy Birthday” along the way.
Disneyland Paris will also hold celebrations in Main Street, U.S.A. Be prepared to celebrate Mickey’s birthday just before “Disney Magic on Parade,” as well as during the Lucky Nugget Saloon show at Disneyland park and in “Mickey and the Magician” at Walt Disney Studios park.
Visitors to Hong Kong Disneyland will be able to pick up a special Mickey Birthday pin and a special edition Times Guide in honour of everyone’s favourite mouse. At Shanghai Disney Resort and Tokyo Disney Resort, guests will have the chance to sing “Happy Birthday” and join in lots of special photo opportunities.
Leading up to his big day, Mickey Mouse will take off to exciting destinations such as Japan, Canada, China, England, Chile and the United States. He will share magical moments along the way. He will then bring a few more surprises when he visits the Good Morning America studios in New York City on November 15.
We’d love you see all of your favourite Mickey Mouse moments, photos and memories. Here’s my personal favourite when Mickey and Minnie surprised us at breakfast on my recent SuperFAM trip to Orlando!
