Following the debut of the popular Wishes Come True Blue color collection, we continue to celebrate the 40-year anniversary of Disney and Make-A-Wish® with a lovable Mickey Mouse plush – which unlocks yet another donation to Make-A-Wish – along with a brand-new animated short!  

The holidays are the perfect time for giving and of course, giving back. This holiday season, Disney Parks, Experiences and Products is launching a three-minute animated short entitled “From Our Family to Yours.” This animated short highlights festive traditions and shared experiences that connect generations and make lifelong memories. It features two new lovable characters, Lola and her granddaughter, alongside a familiar friend – Mickey Mouse. 

Check out this touching animated short and be sure to have tissues at the ready: 

Love the soundtrack as much as I do? It’s the new “Love Is A Compass” single performed by Griff, a 19-year-old British singer-songwriter whose powerful vocals support the moving animation. Griff has recently been nominated for a prestigious Ivor Novello award for Rising Star. You can listen to the heart-warming single on all digital provider services – wherever you stream music! 

Mickey Mouse plush

It’s available now online at and across the pond at Disney stores in Europe and online at The best part? For every Mickey Mouse Vintage Holiday Plush sold through Jan. 31, 2021, shopDisney will donate 25% of the purchase price to Make-A-Wish to help grant wishes.

  • Truly the story and animation depict a Filipino tradition of celebrating Christmas season which starts on September 1 (“…ber” month). Disney Creative Director, Angela Affinita, and her team did a very remarkable presentation. For sure, this animated short clip inspires and touches the hearts of many especially in this very challenging time. Mickey Mouse has a very important role in this new normal at Christmas.

  • This was beautiful and very heartwarming. My wish would be for all of us to get back to a safe and more normal life to celebrate at Disney parks.

  • The star lanterns remind of a great Filipino holiday tradition of the parols.
