Disneyland Gives Mickey Mouse a Birthday Surprise

Mickey Mouse’s birthday is November 18th. This year his birthday was celebrated around the globe in different ways. Mickey visited people and created some absolutely magical moments. On November 18th though, thousands turned out to visit Mickey Mouse and celebrate his birthday at the happiest place on Earth!

The celebration began with buttons that were given to guests as they entered the turnstiles at Disneyland and Disney California Adventure. In the Emporium at Disneyland and also in the World of Disney in Downtown Disney, merchandise commemorating the day could be found. The big event though was the surprise birthday celebration for Mickey Mouse along the parade route. A cavalcade, led by the Disneyland Band, made its way down the parade route before stopping in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle. This cavalcade also included Minnie Mouse (also her birthday), Pluto, Donald Duck, and Goofy in various Main Street vehicles. On the side of the firetruck a banner wished Mickey Mouse a happy birthday.

The band and cavalcade stopped in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle and then Mickey was called out from the castle for his surprise. Once he was surprised, everyone sang Happy Birthday. The song ended with an explosion of confetti.

Once the song was over and cheering had subsided, the cavalcade made its way down the parade route. There were also birthday moments on Main Street, USA and then again in front of the Main Street Train Station. What is your favorite Mickey Mouse memory?
