This Friday, Disney Parks around the world will celebrate Mickey Mouse’s birthday, and we want you to join in the fun! Take a look at what’s in store for you at each resort.

At the Disneyland Resort, you can sing “Happy Birthday” to Mickey in a special pre-parade moment before enjoying “A Christmas Fantasy” Parade on Main Street, U.S.A. Over at Walt Disney World Resort, you can join some of your favorite characters for a special birthday-themed edition of the “Move It! Shake It! Dance & Play It!” Street Party. Commemorative “Happy Birthday, Mickey!” buttons will also be available at both Disneyland and Walt Disney World Resorts.

If you’re at Shanghai Disney Resort this Friday, celebrate Mickey’s birthday along Mickey Avenue with a special Grand-Marshal pre-parade. At Hong Kong Disneyland, you just might find commemorative birthday stickers and pins and the chance to share a magical moment with Mickey.

Disneyland Paris will host not one, not two, but three full days of celebration and surprises for this special event. Mickey will be celebrating his birthday on Main Street, U.S.A., just before the Disney Magic on Parade and a Mickey cupcake will be available in various locations.

And to celebrate no matter where you are in the world, keep an eye out for Mickey’s new music video highlighting his trip around the world to the new hit song “What We Got,” premiering this Friday on ABC’s Good Morning America.

Use the hashtag #HappyBirthdayMickey on Twitter to show us how you joined in the celebration!
