Dapper Day Guest Surprises Mickey Mouse in Disneyland Dressed as Walt Disney

Cosplayer and Disney lover Bill Burns shared a magical moment with Mickey Mouse that is going viral online! While visiting Disneyland for Dapper Day, Bill (@billburnzcosplay) had a surprising interaction with Mickey Mouse after he entered the park dressed as Walt Disney.

The two had a touching reunion as Mickey stopped and stared at Bill’s impressive cosplay, including the iconic Walt smile. After what seemed like “forever” for Burns, Mickey embraced him, then stood back and posed while holding Bill’s hand. After photos were taken, Mickey stepped back and pretended to wipe away tears and hold his heart, expressing his love for the uncanny impression. Bill and Mickey moved on to the Disneyland Fire Dept. to recreate the “Partners” statue. The pair were later met with Minnie Mouse and posed for additional photos to remember the magical moment. Check out Bill’s post, as well as a video shared by a witness, below:
