Mickey turned 90 earlier this month so we went into the parks to celebrate! For his birthday weekend only, the parks released Mickey-themed treats in celebration of the big 90. Us girls headed down to the park that Saturday morning to get a taste. We started with the celebration churro and it was DELICIOUS. Very messy but very much delicious. This churro had cookie butter drizzled on top of it so it wasn’t a hard sell.
After the churro, we walked around the park, took some photos…tried working up our appetite and then stopped by the Gibson Girl Ice Cream Parlor to get the Mickey & Minnie Mouse Birthday Cake Ice Cream Sundae. This Sundae was like a melting pot of all your favorite birthday goodies; cupcakes, brownies, whipped cream and scoops of birthday cake ice cream. We could not and did not finish this sundae, we were in desperate need of extra help.
On Sunday we got up bright and early so we could get our Birthday pins before they ran out (which they did…around noon) and quickly found a spot for Mickey’s Birthday Cavalcade down Main Street. It was cute to see all the characters come out for Mickey’s Birthday. We loved seeing those characters that we don’t usually get to see in the parks, some of them we haven’t seen since we were kids *cough cough Jiminy Cricket*. The cavalcade stopped right in front of us and we all got to sing “Happy Birthday” to Mickey and Minnie.
After the cavalcade, we were on the hunt for the Mickey Mouse Sipper! We headed over to DCA to try our luck and were able to snag one without having to wait in the long lines over at Disneyland.
We stopped by Sugarfina to pick up their limited edition Mickey The True Original candy. This is just one of the many collaborations celebrating Mickey’s 90th Birthday… at this rate, it feels like we could be celebrating all year long (YAY!) so stay tuned!
Out of the three candies, our favorite was the Mickey Mouse Buttons (berry flavored gummies). We’re trying to find a reason to justify another trip to the store within a couple days of each other but really, we just want more candy and another look at that cute hidden Mickey!!
Kenz just got this cute loungefly backpack from Boxlunch…it seemed like the perfect prop to match. This will be Disney backpack number three for us…we can’t help ourselves, they’re all just too cute!
Mickey Mouse turns 90 this November and in celebration, milk’s favorite cookie has released limited edition birthday cake-flavored Oreos. We were able to get our hands on the delicious cookies by going to Target, but they will be sold nationwide starting Sept 24th while supplies lasts!
Last weekend, we ended our day at the park with a purchase at the Castle Holiday Shoppe in Fantasyland. The cast member helping us asked if we were annual passholders (we are) and then she asked us what our favorite part about being an annual passholder is. We haven’t been asked that question in a loooonng time and it made us think…what IS our favorite part about being annual passholders?
Kenzie: “You can be a little spontaneous! Many times when Courtney and I have been down in Orange County visiting our parents (and the dogs), we’ve made a pit stop for some churros or popcorn. We used to do it in High School too, after class we’d go to Disneyland for the night and just hang out. No pressure, no plans.”
Courtney: “My favorite thing about being a passholder is being able to go to the park any time. We can go just for dinner or to catch a parade or show that we haven’t seen in a while. Also, we get to experience Disney year round, through every holiday. I can’t wait to see the park all decked out for Christmas! It’s my favorite”
Cody: “The Food. That’s not really an annual passholder answer but my favorite part is the food…”
