    Hi! We will be in MK on Mickey's birthday, November 18. I know there are birthday celebrations going on now, but do they do anything extra special on this day?

    It's great to see you here today at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Angela!

    The last few months of the year are my favorite time to visit Walt Disney World Resort because there is just so much going on. Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party at Magic Kingdom Park will have just kicked off the week before your arrival, and you'll still have over a week to enjoy the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival! There is another special celebration that happens each November too, and that's Mickey Mouse's birthday on November 18. Mickey celebrated a big milestone birthday last year when he turned 90, but the fun didn't stop there so let's chat about what you might be able to see and do when you visit the main Mouse for birthday number 91 this year.

    We haven't heard any official plans yet for the big celebration this year, but going by what we've seen before you should start the day by grabbing a complimentary "Happy Birthday Mickey Mouse" button, which Cast Members are usually handing out on Main Street U.S.A.! You definitely have to stop by Town Square Theater to meet the birthday boy, and there will probably be a card for you to sign and leave your best wishes for another magical year. My favorite way to celebrate my birthday and the birthdays of the people I love is with some awesome food, so keep an eye out for some limited-time offerings that might pop up. Last year there was delicious Birthday Bash Push Pop that I hope makes a reappearance! We'll probably hear a little more about the plans for Mickey's big birthday party soon on the Disney Parks Blog, so bookmark that page and keep checking back to see what you can expect on your trip this November.

    Have a magical day, Angela!
