This month — November 18, to be exact — marks Mickey Mouse’s 92nd birthday! While Disney fans won’t get to experience quite the same fanfare they did for Mickey’s 90th, there is still plenty to look forward to.

Since Disney’s theme parks look quite a bit different than they normally do as a result of the ongoing pandemic — Disneyland Resort and Disneyland Paris are currently closed, and character greets at other Disney theme parks are socially distanced — D23 is having a virtual celebration for Mickey and Minnie’s birthday this year!

On November 18, there will be two exciting online events for Disney fans around the world to enjoy. Discover details about both virtual birthday celebrations below.

Happy Birthday, Mickey and Minnie!

D23’s official details about their upcoming Fantastic Worlds Celebration Week, which includes “Celebrate Mickey & Minnie On Their Birthday” on November 18, describes the virtual Disney event as:

Premieres: 3:00 PM PT / 6:00 PM ET on D23.com and D23’s Facebook and YouTube pages

When Walt Disney introduced the world to his animated mouse — mercifully named Mickey instead of Mortimer, thanks to Lillian Disney — on November 18, 1928, he could not have known what he was starting! As Walt himself once said, “Let us never forget, it all started with a mouse.”

Will you be joining in to celebrate Mickey and Minnie’s birthday along with D23 on November 18?
