On November 18 of each year, we celebrate the birthdays of Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse! Whether you are traveling to a Disney park for the celebration or celebrating from your home, we have a few fun ideas of how you can make it a super day!
In 2023, Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse will celebrate their 95th birthday! They may have changed over the years since Walt Disney first brought Steamboat Willie to life, but they’re still full of magic and joy. Grab a friend or family member and pick a fun idea to celebrate today.
Grab a Birthday Button
If you’re visiting a Disney park, don’t forget to grab a birthday button to wear in celebration of Mickey and Minnie’s birthdays. In each Disney park, these buttons can be found at Guest Relations locations. If you’re celebrating from home, make a fun craft activity out of creating your own buttons to celebrate Mickey and Minnie Mouse.
Eat a Mickey Shaped Snack
Wear a Pair of Minnie or Mickey Ears
Whether you’re at one of the Disney theme parks or in your living room, don those iconic ears to get into the celebratory spirit. Over the years, we’ve seen some pretty awesome Mickey ears. Grab your favorite pair and wear them with pride.
If you don’t have a pair of ears, Mickey Mouse’s birthday is the perfect day to make your first pair! All you need is a headband, construction paper, and tape to build your first pair of mouse ears. However, you can use what you have around your house and be as creative as possible to make them feel like “you.”
Find a Hidden Mickey
Keep your eyes peeled throughout the day for hidden Mickeys. These are common throughout the Disney parks. They’re places where Disney Imagineers and Cast Members have hidden Mickey Mouse’s likeness in attractions, resort designs, and even just in the architecture throughout the theme parks.
However, if you’ve got Mickey on the brain, you’re bound to find three circles that remind you of the famous mouse, even if you’re not at a Disney Resort.
Throw a Mickey Mouse Party
Grab your favorite friends and family and invite them as guests to a birthday party for Mickey and Minnie Mouse. You can take some of the other ideas here and use them for your party. Make your own Mickey/Minnie ears and serve Mickey-shaped snacks. For extra fun, hide Mickey silhouettes around your space and hunt for hidden mickeys.
