ANAHEIM, Calif. (Jan. 16, 2019) – Get Your Ears On – A Mickey and Minnie Celebration launches at the Disneyland Resort this month, inviting guests to the biggest celebration of Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse in Disneyland history. Mickey and Minnie have brought joy to millions of people around the world spanning generations, and guests visiting the Disneyland Resort in 2019 will be encouraged to “Get Your Ears On” and celebrate 90 years of magic with the legendary duo that started it all.
Get Your Ears On will present exciting new ways to celebrate the beloved Mickey and Minnie, with new entertainment and décor at Disneyland Park, plus limited-time food and beverage offerings and festive event merchandise available throughout the resort.
“Mickey’s Mix Magic”: Beginning Jan. 18, “Mickey’s Mix Magic” will light up the night at Disneyland park with a new high-energy projection show, celebrating the one and only Mickey Mouse. This nightly extravaganza creates a family-fun dance party throughout the park, with “DJ” Mickey spinning the new celebration song, “It’s a Good Time” along with new, fun takes on favorite Disney songs. State-of-the-art projections, lighting and lasers will transform Main Street, U.S.A., the façade of “it’s a small world” and the water screens of the Rivers of America (when “Fantasmic!” returns in March) into a colorful, dazzling display of sights and sounds to celebrate Mickey Mouse. And on select nights, “Mickey’s Mix Magic” will go sky high when the show is enhanced with the addition of fireworks.
“Mickey’s Soundsational Parade”: The popular “Mickey’s Soundsational Parade” returns to Disneyland park starting Jan. 25, with a rockin’ new opening to kick off the party. Mickey leads the way in a new larger-than-life opening, inspired by the classic and nostalgic Mickey pull toys. Next, Chip ‘n’ Dale arrive with a giant celebration cake, as Mickey and his drum corps kick off a whimsical, musical procession of Disney characters.
Valentine’s Month: From Jan. 22-Feb. 18, Disneyland Resort will celebrate the love of Minnie and Mickey for Valentine’s month. As guests enter Disneyland park, they will find a new Mickey Mouse flower “portrait,” and lovely and festive Valentine’s décor all along Main Street, U.S.A. and at Small World Mall. During Valentine’s month, guests may also choose to partake in Minnie’s Valentine Surprise, a special scavenger hunt experience in Disneyland park. Once guests have purchased a commemorative map and stickers at select merchandise locations, they may search for the hidden valentines that Minnie has left for Mickey around the park. Upon completion, they return their map to a designated location to redeem a special Valentine’s surprise.
“Get Your Ears On” Celebration Dance Party: Beginning Jan. 25, the new “Get Your Ears On” Celebration Dance Party will take place each evening at Tomorrowland Terrace in Disneyland park. Guests of all ages will be able to move and groove with some of their favorite Disney characters, dancing to the celebration song, “It’s a Good Time,” along with other popular Disney tunes.
Food, beverage, merchandise and more: For a limited-time during Get Your Ears On, specialty food, beverage, novelty items and merchandise will be available for guests to celebrate the beloved duo in fun, new ways. Throughout the Disneyland Resort, guests will find “classic” Mickey- and Minnie-shaped foods with a new festive twist, exclusive Get Your Ears On themed treats, holiday specialty items for Valentine’s month, and so much more. Additionally, a celebration sipper and new Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse popcorn buckets will make their debut. Plus, new merchandise will be available for all ages, including celebration apparel, pins, plush, and Mickey and Minnie ears. In the Downtown Disney District, PANDORA will debut a limited-edition Disney dangle charm with a 14 karat gold “90,” Dooney & Bourke will feature new Mickey Mouse bags and a special Mickey Through the Years dress will be available at The Disney Dress Shop.
