Calling all McDonald’s and Disney fans! The two company giants are again joining forces with all-new Happy Meal toys inspired by Mickey Mouse and his best pals.
It wasn’t too long ago Disney teamed up with the fast-food giant McDonald’s to launch the highly collectible Disney character and Walt Disney World ride vehicle toys in celebration of the opening of Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway attraction. Each Happy Meal toy in the ride vehicle series became a popular collectors item and included:
Mission: SPACE rocket ship with Mickey Mouse, Expedition Everest vehicle with Goofy, Soarin’ Over Spaceship Earth with Daisy Duck, Disney’s Jungle Cruise boat with Pluto, Mad Tea Party cup with Donald Duck, Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway car with Mickey and Minnie, Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway train with Goofy, and DINOSAUR ride vehicle with Minnie Mouse.
Disney caught on to the McDonald’s Happy Meal toy popularity! When the Walt Disney World Resort’s 50th Anniversary rolled around, Disney again partnered with McDonald’s to reveal special 50th Anniversary Happy Meal toys featuring the Fab 50 character sculptures at the Disney theme parks. Disney and McDonald’s fans once again went into a collecting frenzy!
And while we’ve seen Stitch-inspired Happy Meal toys roll out at Disney, nothing was quite as popular as the ride vehicle and 50th-anniversary collections. But now, collectors will find NEW toys have arrived at McDonald’s!
McDonald’s is offering giant Disney-inspired posters that have fun activities on the back. There are currently three posters in the “Walt Disney World Mickey and Friends” series, including Mickey at Magic Kingdom Park Poster, Mickey and Minnie at EPCOT Poster, and Mickey and Friends at Disney’s Hollywood Studios Poster. Additionally, new Disney-inspired card games have arrived, including “Go Mickey”, “Clap Game,” and “Memory Game.”
Interestingly enough, it doesn’t appear like Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park will be featured on a poster in this series, with only three of Walt Disney World’s four theme parks being featured.
The six different Happy Meal Toys are currently available while supplies last at local McDonald’s. Don’t wait, as we suspect the collectors of the Disney-inspired McDonald’s Happy Meal toys will hurry off to McDonald’s for these items.
