Mickey Celebrates First Anniversary of New Barn at Tri-Circle-D Ranch

We previously shared the news that a new barn was established at Tri-Circle-D Ranch at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort. Well, it’s hard to believe it has already been a full year since the new addition. Of course, Mickey Mouse wanted to visit the sweet horses and celebrate the one-year Anniversary!

As shared by Walt Disney World Cast and Community via Facebook: “This week marked the first anniversary of the new barn at the Tri-Circle-D Ranch, and Mickey Mouse himself stopped by to celebrate the team…and of course, visit the horses! Congratulations to the entire team at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground, and especially to the Ranch Hands that do so much to take care of the horses that call the ranch home. Thanks so much to our friends at Disney’s Animals, Science and Environment for sharing these fun photos! We can’t wait to stop by and see the team during our next visit.”

So sweet! If you want to take a glance at the new ranch, you’ll find it located new the bus loop by Pioneer Hall in Disney’s Fort Wilderness. Did you know… Tri-Circle-D Ranch has a long history of housing “The Happiest Horses on Earth,” as it was part of Walt’s vision to bring horses to Magic Kingdom much like he did in Disneyland. Tri-Circle-D Ranch was established before opening day of Walt Disney World, making Walt’s wish come true.

About Mike/ Jamie

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and RunDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 16 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
