Rare Video of Mickey Mouse Dancing at WDW

posted on October 2nd, 2009 by Darrell Fry, Sports Media Director, Walt Disney World Resort

What better way to get an early start on the weekend than with rare video of dancing Mickey.

Hi, I’m Darrell Fry, Sports Media Director at Walt Disney World Resort.

This amazing Mickey dance routine is just one example of the one-of-a-kind experiences that take place at Disney’s Wide World of Sports Complex throughout the year.

We’ll be giving you the scoop on those kinds of experiences and so much more as Disney’s Wide World of Sports Complex transitions into ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex over the next several months as part of the Disney-ESPN collaboration to take youth sports to the next level.

Along the way, we’ll take you behind the scenes at some of the biggest sports events at Disney, such as the Old Spice Classic college basketball tournament over Thanksgiving Weekend, the Home Depot ESPNU College Football Awards in December and Atlanta Braves Spring Training in February.

Essentially, this is a great place to get all of the insider information about the biggest events in amateur sports and some of the marquee names in pro sports.

See you in the huddle …

More proof that Mickey is amazing. That was hysterical.

Great Video!!! I was part of the opening team back in the day. Say hello to the sports sales department for me.

Mickey needs to go on Dancing with the Stars. 😀

That is just amazing! Go Mickey!

HaHa, awesome video!

On a side note, I hope the transition of the WWOS will make a difference and make it a more integral part of the property. Because often when I am at WDW, unless there is a special event going on, WWOS is empty with nothing to do. So, my question is, will it be turining into a special events venue (nothing wrong with that) or a place that the average guest can visit on any day?

I had no idea Mr. Mouse was such a great dancer!


Lee on October 2nd, 2009 at 11:19 am

Haha! That is fantastic! Here is Mickey dancing at Disneyland Paris!
He just can’t stop!

I love seeing these types of clips, where characters do something just a little unexpected.

And if you remember back to 1994, Mickey actually did a little “popping and locking” breakdance moves on top of his float during the Mickey Mania parade in the Magic Kingdom.

Do you remember these classic 80s lyrics from the song?:

“Yo, there! Listen up all you RAD dudes! Walt’s house is rockin’ with the mania on this hit street, with a brand new beat. My main man, Mickey Mouse is bustin’ fresh, out of sight. He wants you to chill hard and bump the bump, while the Mania grooves your mood. Mickey Mania is taking control!”

Go Mickey! Go, Go, Go Mickey!!!


Darlene from GA on October 2nd, 2009 at 12:42 pm

I love this…Mickey got some moves!

I would love to see more! :)


Nathan on October 2nd, 2009 at 12:49 pm

So you think you can dance? I guess Mickey can now we need to see what Minnie can do


victor on October 2nd, 2009 at 12:57 pm

This is the cutest and funniest thing I think I’ve ever seen. Mickey is awesome!


Chris on October 2nd, 2009 at 1:41 pm

That’s awesome! I’ve never seen Mickey that animated when he wasn’t actually ‘animated.’ Very cool!


Shannon from MI on October 2nd, 2009 at 2:15 pm

That was just great! So enjoying this blog!


Krista on October 2nd, 2009 at 2:24 pm

Awww, that is too cute! You go Mickey! :)


JIM from NY on October 2nd, 2009 at 4:10 pm

That is so out of character !


Ian on October 2nd, 2009 at 4:30 pm

This is great! Have tried to post this video to Facebook… but it keeps pointing to the 3rd party video site when embedding the video


Diane from CT on October 2nd, 2009 at 5:02 pm

Go Mickey! Go Mickey!


Melissa from TX on October 2nd, 2009 at 6:32 pm

The only thing funnier than this clip is Lou’s comment with the lyrics from the gone-but-not-forgotten parade song and dance!!


Andrea on October 2nd, 2009 at 7:11 pm

Mickey’s got talent!


Peter on October 2nd, 2009 at 9:23 pm

This video is further proof that I have the utmost respect for Mickey Mouse.


Rosie on October 2nd, 2009 at 11:18 pm

Mickey got a such amazing dance skill


Debbie from GA on October 2nd, 2009 at 11:25 pm

Well….he IS Mickey Mouse you know….

We shouldn’t be surprised should we? I don’t think there is anything he can’t do, right?

This clip reminds me of MNSSHP, where the characters dance. It’s funny to watch them do their versions of current dance moves!

Thanks for sharing!


Karen from MA on October 3rd, 2009 at 2:51 pm

This is just another reason why I love Mickey. He can do anything! Great video!

I love the way Disney stays current! Great video!


Ashlie from MA on October 5th, 2009 at 2:11 pm

That was by far one of the coolest things I’ve seen this month/year/possibly ever!

Thanks for sharing!


Allison from TX on October 6th, 2009 at 9:04 am

That is a great way to start the day! Lots of fun. Who knew he could dance like that!
