If anybody knows how to celebrate their birthday in style it’s Mickey Mouse. And this year, the world’s most famous mouse has decided to spread the birthday cheer by celebrating with fans across the globe.
November 18, 1928 marks the date Mickey Mouse made his screen debut in Steamboat Willie. Of course, Mickey wouldn’t be the household name he is today nearly 90 years later if it wasn’t for the fans. That’s why he’s traveling the world to surprise some of his biggest fans for his birthday this year. Mickey will be making stops in eight countries including Japan, Chile, China, Canada, England and the United States.
Fans can check out Mickey’s Facebook and Instagram pages to follow along on his travels and surprises. You can share your own favorite moments with Mickey on social media with the hashtag #HappyBirthdayMickey. Disney Stores will also be rolling out special items in honor of the celebration from November 16-23 and there will be in-store events and entertainment across the country as well as at all Disney resort parks on November 18.
You can even celebrate the special day from your living room when Mickey makes a special guest appearance live on Good Morning America on November 15.
