This summer, Disney is celebrating Disney10o with some of our most beloved characters. Mickey Mouse and Friends are being honored by “embracing the sensational six characters that have captured our hearts and always encouraged us to be ourselves.” Disney Parks Blog writes.

To commemorate, Disney included their favorite merchandise and experiences offered throughout the month of July for these iconic characters.
