It all started with a mouse. Now 90 years later, we are in party-prep mode for the birthday of the one and only Mickey Mouse. With a milestone as big as 90 years, one party simply will not do! That’s why Mickey Mouse’s 90th Birthday celebration will span across the globe with a series of events at all Disney Parks sites around the world. These will include the previously announced World’s Biggest Mouse Party – a limited-time, global celebration of Mickey and Minnie. Also included is ‘Mickey: The True Original Exhibition’ in New York City.
Disneyland Paris, Shanghai Disney Resort, Hong Kong Disneyland and Tokyo Disney Resort will host similar celebrations. And, “Mickey: The True Original Exhibition,” an interactive art exhibit, will open in New York from Nov. 8, 2018 – Feb. 10, 2019. This immersive, pop-up art exhibition is inspired by Mickey’s status as a ‘true original’ and his global impact on popular culture and art. From his beginning in black and white in Steamboat Willie to the technicolor world of more than 100 cartoon shorts, exhibition guests will step into an unforgettable journey of Mickey moments re-imagined.
“As Walt said, ‘I only hope that we never lose sight of one thing—that it was all started by a mouse’,” said Bob Chapek, Chairman of Disney Parks, Experiences and Consumer Products. “From ‘The True Original Exhibition’ to a year-long celebration in our parks around the world, we are honoring the deep connection that families and fans have made with Mickey and Minnie Mouse for nearly a century.”
Mickey Mouse’s 90th Birthday is definitely a “mouse”-do this fall!
