Oh boy! Mickey’s birthday month has arrived. If you’re as excited as I am to start celebrating, then read on for ways to show your favorite mouse some extra birthday love during your next Disney cruise.
Watch “Mickey’s 90th Spectacular” on Funnel Vision. The world is coming together to celebrate Mickey Mouse with a star-studded event airing Sunday, November 4 at 8|7c on ABC, and we’re bringing the party to you on the big screen! Head to the upper decks to enjoy the dazzling show while surrounded by fellow fans. Catch the premiere this weekend, and then the replay during cruises throughout the month.
Take a photo with the big cheese and post it with #Mickey90. Check your Navigator to find out when and where you can meet Mickey each day, both onboard and at Castaway Cay. Bonus points if you dress to match whichever stylish outfit he’s sporting, whether it’s his captain uniform, pirate garb, formal wear or tropical attire.
Explore the ship for Hidden Mickeys. Our ships are filled with subtle nods to the timeless icon of Mickey Mouse. Make a game out of it with your family to see who can find the most. Hint: grab your snorkel and you might even discover hidden treasures under the sea at our private island paradise, Castaway Cay.
Show off your Mickey-shaped snacks. Be sure to snap your Instagram-worthy photos before taking a big bite of your Mickey ice cream bar – or my personal favorite, Mickey waffles! Of course holding up your yummy food and drinks in front of the funnel or turquoise tropical waters will leave all of your followers craving their own celebration on Disney Cruise Line.
Soak up the entertainment. Mickey takes the stage all throughout the cruise, and there’s no better way to pay tribute to the true original than letting him bring a smile to your face. Dance with him at deck parties, play swashbuckling games with him on Pirate Night and give him the standing ovation he deserves after our Broadway-style shows.
Let the party begin!
