Mickey’s 90th Spectacular Birthday on ABC

We attended as a guest of Disney

I have a huge secret to share with everyone!! Mickey is 90 years old! I know, he has aged so well, right? In honor of celebrating the timeless Disney characters 90th birthday, ABC has decided to throw a birthday party for Mickey. I was lucky enough to attend Mickey’s 90th Spectacular with my mom where I got to see some of my favorite celebrities perform and hear all about the history of Mickey Mouse and how he came to be.

My mom and I arrived at ABC Studios, checked in, and found our seats were we eagerly awaited the arrival of Mickey Mouse. The show began with Mickey and a bunch of amazing performers coming onto the stage to dance and do other amazing stunts. I don’t want to spoil anything for you, but it was absolutely amazing. We watched them do some epic tricks and watched Mickey dance along. The first act definitely set the tone for the rest of the evening.

Then came the fantastic experience of getting to watch some of my favorite singers and performers live! I was so excited when Meghan Trainor, Sofia Carson, NCT 127, and more took the stage. Everyone in the crowd was starting and clapping with awe when all of these amazing people performed for Mickey Mouse on his birthday. There were also some guest speakers that shared their personal stories with Mickey Mouse himself such as, Josh Gadd, Kristen Bell, Kaley Cuoco, and so many more. Hearing each of their hilarious and heartwarming stories made me remember some of my own with my family.

Mickey Mouse is a Disney character that has been there since the beginning of time. He is celebrated worldwide, and the merchandise for him is sold in just about every store. My family and many others have welcomed Mickey into their homes, and he has made it a million times better when trouble comes around, and you always have that one solitary character you can count on to cheer you up. Whether it is watching some cartoons or cuddling with a Mickey plushie, he is a character of love and happiness.

At the end of the show, there is a grand finale that you CANNOT miss. Not only was it so much fun to participate in, but it makes you value the meaning of friendship and celebration.

Gather the friends and family and get in front of the TV tomorrow November 4, at 8|7c on ABC, to watch everyone celebrate Mickey’s 90th spectacular birthday celebration! You are not going to wanna miss this festive party. Learn more about ABC o Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
