Platinum Mickey Statue

The new platinum Mickey statue is in front of the giant “100” at the front of the bridge to World Showcase, with Spaceship Earth behind it. The quote on the statue’s base reads “…it was all started by a mouse.”

The statue is identical to the one at Disneyland Park, which was originally installed in January, but with the incorrect quote “It all started with a mouse.” The full original quote by Walt Disney was actually “I only hope that we never lose sight of one thing: that it was all started by a mouse.” The Mickey statue was removed soon after and returned in February with the correct quote.

Disneyland also has a platinum Minnie Mouse statue with the lyric “A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes.”

Disney100 Character Mural

100 Years of Wonder

Wondrous Journeys

Disney’s 100 Years of Wonder (or Disney100 for short) is being celebrated across the world at Disney Parks and Resorts.

The 100 Years of Wonder celebration began at Disneyland Resort with “Wondrous Journeys” at Disneyland and “World of Color – ONE” at Disney California Adventure. There is a platinum Mickey statue (which initially had to be fixed because the Walt Disney quote on the base was incorrect) and a platinum Minnie statue in Disneyland.

Disneyland Resort is offering the “Celebrating Disney100 at the Disneyland Resort” guided tour, including a walk through both parks, the drawing experience at Animation Academy, a digital download of a photo taken in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle, a Disney100 snack, reserved parade viewing, and a limited-edition pin.

EPCOT is debuting several Disney100 offerings. At the Magic Eye Theater, guests can meet Mickey and Minnie in their platinum 100th anniversary outfits. At night, Spaceship Earth will light up with a special Disney100 spectacle of light featuring a special rendition of “When You Wish Upon a Star.”

The purple metallic Mickey Balloon Premium Popcorn Bucket is available and new Global Marketplaces will open as part of the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival.

A new nighttime spectacular, “Luminous: The Symphony of Us,” is scheduled to premiere on December 5. The show was originally supposed to debut for the 100th anniversary in October but was reportedly delayed due to the soundtrack.

Check out our full list with locations of Disney100 pressed pennies at Walt Disney World. Other souvenirs include Disney100 silver medallionsgift cardslight-up balloons, and refillable mugs.
