The All-New Mickey Mouse Club was a reboot of the 1950s Mickey Mouse Club—the rebooted show featured comedy sketches, music videos, celebrity guests, and new talented young performers. From 1989 to 1995, this popular show gave many of those young performers their start. Some stars included Justin Timberlake, who started in the show from 1993 to 1994; Christina Aguilera, who performed alongside Timberlake from 1993 to 1994; and Britney Spears from 1993 to 1996. Now, years later, one of these stars is finally speaking out.

About Jennifer Retzlaff

My name is Jennifer Retzlaff and I became a lifelong Disney fan during my first trip to Walt Disney World in 6th grade. From that moment, Disney became a big part of my life. I live in Iowa with my husband and two kids who are growing up too quickly for my liking. I started introducing my love for Disney early to my family with a Disney honeymoon and then trips when our youngest of 18 months. Since then, our family has been to Walt Disney World over five times and we continue to plan and dream for the next trip. I love the magic that Disney brings to people through the theme parks, cruises, adventures and movies they create. As a teacher, I try to bring that magic into my classroom to help kids believe that “If You Can Dream It, You Can Do It.” I recently reached a dream of mine as I joined Magic Vacation Planner as a personal travel advisor. With this team, I can now help others plan magical vacations. As a passionate writer, I also have my own blog at magicalvacationsbyjen which is also where you can follow me on instagram for trip reviews along with tips and tricks for your next magical vacation.
