Today in Disney History, Mickey Mouse made his on-screen debut in the animated short, “Steamboat Willie,” in 1928. In honor of our favorite mouse’s birthday, Disney artist Leo Cardoso developed this brand new desktop/digital wallpaper for us to share with all of you.
I have to say, I think this is one of the sweetest graphics we’ve shared yet in our Disney Doodles series. In it, the brave little mouse Bernard, from the film “The Rescuers,” is saving the day again for Miss Bianca – this time with umbrella and Disney Parks ponchos!
We know how much Disney Parks fans love our animated films and shorts. So today, we’re happy to share that coming in December, Epcot guests can experience beloved Disney and Pixar animated shorts in a new 4D experience located in Magic Eye Theater in the Imagination Pavilion. “Disney & Pixar Short Film Festival” will include a look into the visionary minds behind some of the world’s most iconic animated films today.
Then inside the theater, guests can put on their 3D glasses and enter the imaginative worlds of three animated shorts, which will burst to life on the big screen (and in the theater) like never before.
To make way for this new offering, “Captain EO,” the current occupant of Magic Eye Theater will say its final farewell December 6. Hope many of you are able to come out to see them change the world one more time.
In this week’s Disney Doodle, artist Ashley Taylor imagines what it would be like if Hercules visited Fantasyland at Magic Kingdom Park. No doubt he’d be up for a test of strength. Do you think he could pull the sword from the stone?
UPDATE: This live event has concluded. Please keep your eye on the Disney Parks Blog for future opportunities.
Thanks for joining us for tonight’s live stream of “A Frozen Holiday Wish” from Magic Kingdom Park. The performance will begin shortly. In the meantime, tell us in the “Comments” section where you’re watching from!

Jingle Cruise is again themed as if the Skippers are homesick for the holidays and to add cheer, they decorated the attraction queue and boathouse with homemade decorations, gifts and items from back home. Boats have temporarily been renamed with holiday monikers and the Skippers are armed with seasonal jokes. (Listen carefully in the queue, too – you may hear a holiday-themed radio broadcast playing in the background).
Fans of the Jungle Cruise will have even more to look forward to this holiday season. As we previously shared, a new restaurant called Jungle Skipper Canteen is currently being constructed in Adventureland and is set to open in late 2015. At the restaurant, guests will be able to experience “World Famous Jungle Cuisine” in one of several unique dining rooms, including a crew mess hall and a once-hidden secret meeting room of the famed Society of Explorers and Adventurers.
