Countdown to Mickey and Minnie’s Surprise Celebration at Walt Disney World

We previously reported that Mickey & Minnie’s Surprise Celebration would be coming to Magic Kingdom Park.  The countdown to the event has officially begun!  The event will kick off of January 18th, 2019 and we have learned even more detailed about this awesome celebration.  The event will honor Mickey and Minnie Mouse with a variety of new entertainment, merchandise and specialty food and beverages. We have the new details for you from Disney Parks Blog to check out below:


  • Mickey and Minnie will greet guests together inside Town Square Theater, sporting all-new colorful outfits for their special celebration.
  • The new Celebration Station inside Town Square Theater will be a must visit, as you can sign a guestbook to let Mickey and Minnie know, personally, just how much fun you’re having during their party.
  • An all-new song, “It’s a Good Time,” will play several times daily as part of the new “Move It! Shake It! MousekeDance It! Street Party.” During this high-energy bash, you will be able to join in the fun with all your pals, including Donald Duck, Daisy Duck, Goofy and many others.
  • Mickey’s beloved dog, Pluto, will meet guests under the big top at Pete’s Silly Sideshow in Storybook Circus.

2019 also means the 30 year anniversary at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.  On January 18th there will be a new 30th anniversary logo revealed for the theme park.  There will also be new character interactions with The Incredibles and Monsters, Inc. characters.  There will also be a new “Disney Junior Dance Party!” featuring Vampirina, Doc McStuffins and other favorite Disney Junior characters.

If you will be heading to Epcot in January, the Epcot International Festival of the Arts will kick off on January 18th.  The 2019 event will feature an expanded Disney on Broadway Concert Series.  This will also be among the last months to check out IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth, as the popular fireworks show is ending during the second half of 2019.

At Disney’s Animal Kingdom there will be a new “Hakuna Matata Time Dance Party” with Timon and Pumbaa.  It will be held at Discovery Island and so much fun for the entire family.

Which of these new offerings are you most excited for?

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
