Today In Disney History ~ June 18th


Mickey’s Birthdayland opened in Walt Disney World to celebrate Mickey’s 60th Birthday. The area was built on land east of 20,000 leagues and included a new train station, circus-style tent, Grandma Duck’s farm and Minnie Moo a famous cow who had a large hidden Mickey on her side. Inside the tent guests could see a show about Mickey’s Surprise Birthday Party.

The area was so popular is was remodeled in Aptril 1990 and turned into Mickey’s Starland which in 1996 would close to make way for the now closed Mickey’s Toontown Fair.

Part of the goal Michele has for The Main Street Mouse is not only to keep members informed, but to create somewhat of a Disney Family by relating to others through personal experiences and opinions. Also, Michele is making it a priority to share stories of inspiration and hope to other Disney Fans in an effort to share the Magic and hopefully make a difference in the lives of others. ~ I enjoy writing personal perspective blogs, doing TMSM Meet Ups for our readers, and keeping the constant interaction going with others, sharing the Disney Magic to people when they can’t be at their Happy Place.
