1.) Mickey Mouse turned 90!
The mouse who started it all did so 90 long years ago, and 2018 has been a celebration of Mickey’s birthday. But the parks really celebrated on November 18, 2018—Mickey’s birthday. At Disneyland, some Guests were able to sign a giant birthday card for Mickey. There were also nods to Mickey and celebrations of his 9-0 at places not associated with Disney. Kohl’s department stores (among others) carried a line of Mickey-inspired clothing, and there was a celebration at Times Square in New York City. It seemed the whole world was celebrating Mickey’s 90th and all he has contributed to our childhoods, pop culture and more.
