Oh Boy! Take a Look at D23’s Destination D: Celebrating Mickey Mouse

D23 Members have been invited to a spectacular celebration of Walt Disney’s beloved mouse. This incredible birthday party will be honoring 90 years of Mickey Mouse! Take a look at the details surrounding this very special, sold out birthday event: Destination D: Celebrating Mickey Mouse!


  • To kick off an unforgettable weekend, Disney Parks, Experiences and Consumer Products Chairman Bob Chapek will stop by to pay tribute to everyone’s favorite mouse, and share some exciting updates from our resorts around the world.
  • Newly announced presentations, including legendary film producer Don Hahn, Imagineers Kevin Rafferty and Charita Carter, and a behind-the-scenes peek at the Mickey: The True Original Exhibition.
  • The Walt Disney Archives presents Mickey’s Magical Kingdoms, an all-new exhibit celebrating Mickey’s historic role at Disney’s theme parks around the world.
  • New this year, Mickey’s of Glendale is thrilled to extend a brand-new way to purchase Destination D limited-edition pins. Rather than wait in line to purchase pins in-store during Destination D, all attendees have the opportunity to partake in a RSP Preference Selection process!

Guests will have the opportunity to kick things off on Friday, November 16, with optional early check-in. Once checked in, Destination D guests can enjoy the following:

  • Mickey’s of Glendale—The famed Walt Disney Imagineering store returns with a pop-up shop at the event for attendees, featuring a selection of exclusive Walt Disney Imagineering merchandise, apparel, and collectibles themed to the event.
  • Mickey Marketplace—For the first time ever, D23 is thrilled to debut a Mickey Marketplace inside Disney’s Contemporary Convention Center. Exclusively available to Destination D attendees, a handful of retailers will offer limited Mickey-branded products.
  • Walt Disney Archives—Access to an exclusive exhibit curated by the Walt Disney Archives celebrating Mickey Mouse.

Please note: These experiences will also be available on Saturday and Sunday during event hours.

Then, join us in the Fantasia Ballroom at Disney’s Contemporary Resort on Saturday and Sunday to discover fascinating details about Mickey’s imaginative past, adventurous present, and boundless future as Disney historians, cast members, Imagineers, and artists host exciting panels, presentations, and other fun-filled entertainment. From Mickey’s historic roles in animated films and television shows to merchandise, magic kingdoms, and beyond, get ready to explore the many wonderful worlds of Walt Disney’s most famous creation!
