Disney Parks to Celebrate Mickey’s Birthday on November 18


2018 will mark Mickey’s 90th year and the Disney parks are planning celebrations on November 18–the anniversary of Steamboat Willie.  On November 18, 1928, Steamboat Willie was released and Mickey Mouse starred in his first theatrical released film.

The birthday celebration will kick off on November 18, 2018 and will continue into 2019!

If you are at one of the Disney parks on November 18, expect special treats, merchandise, photo opportunities and more!

The Disney Parks Blog announced a special on ABC and Mickey Mouse animation shorts:

“But that’s not all! Disney will keep the party going with a star-studded celebration on ABC dedicated to Mickey Mouse, an extended-length birthday episode of Disney Channel’s Mickey Mouse animation shorts and dozens of new books, arts and crafts and comics from Disney Publishing as part of Mickey’s 90th birthday celebration. A new show, Disney On Ice presents Mickey’s Special Celebration, will also begin touring throughout the Asia Pacific region this July.”

If you are a member of D23, Disney animator Mark Henn will be painting Mickey Mouse’s official 90th anniversary portrait, and it will appear on the cover of the fall D23 magazine.
