in Disney, Entertainment, Magic Kingdom, Theme Parks, Walt Disney World

Disney’s Yellow Shoes Creative Group (their ad folks) have dreamed up what may very well be the merriest of all Christmas spots. The 30-second, hand-drawn 2D animated ad answers the question of what makes Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, well, “very merry”:

Disney says the ad is “inspired by the classic Disney shorts and vintage holiday greeting cards.”

Adding to the ad campaign is a downloadable story explaining how Mickey’s first Very Merry Christmas Party began, with a bit of rhyme.

The Disney Parks Blog is also offering a few beautiful desktop wallpaper downloads featuring these same 2D friends. It’s nice to see the classic animation style get a little attention in today’s world of CG.
