Mickey and Minnie Get A New Look to Celebrate 90 Years at Disney Parks
Disney parks around the world are gearing up to celebrate 90 years of Mickey and Minnie Mouse with special events. In honor of their special year, Mickey and Minnie will wear a brand new look for the celebration at Walt Disney World Resort, Disneyland Resort, Hong Kong Disneyland, Shanghai Disney Resort and Disney Cruise Line. Mickey Mouse’s crisp white suit will feature a shower of colorful confetti, while Minnie will wear a puff-sleeve dress adorned with pompons and a buoyant bubble skirt for the celebration.
According to Senior Costume Designer Joe Kucharski, their outfits will reflect the party spirit of the celebration.
“The looks that Mickey and Minnie will be wearing to celebrate their 90th anniversary represent all of the colorful exuberance of a party and birthday party decorations, complete with confetti, balloons, pompons, streamers and more!” he said. “These playful bursts of color and texture are set against crisp white, meant to evoke the nostalgic feeling of frosting, crisp linens and tissue paper.”
The new outfits will be seen at Walt Disney World Resort in “Move It! Shake It! MousekeDance It! Street Party,” opening January 18 during Mickey & Minnie’s Surprise Celebration at Magic Kingdom Park, a limited-time celebration that will include new entertainment, merchandise and specialty food and beverage.
