This week, we shared the news that Mickey Mouse is celebrating his upcoming birthday with a trip around the world where he’ll make surprise appearances in iconic, real-world locations.

During the celebration, you’ll be able to follow Mickey’s adventures right here on the Disney Parks Blog as well as on other social channels, including: Disney’s Mickey Mouse Facebook page, Mickey Mouse Instagram account, or by using the hashtag #HappyBirthdayMickey.

On Mickey’s birthday (Nov. 18) select locations at the Disneyland and Walt Disney World Resorts, as well as Disney Stores around the United States, will distribute commemorative “Happy Birthday, Mickey!” buttons. Check out Jennifer’s original story for more details.
