November marks 90 years of fun (and “oh boys!”) courtesy of Mickey Mouse — and the Walt Disney Company is celebrating the main mouse with a two-hour prime-time television event on November 4! It is appropriately named Mickey’s 90th Spectacular — and we got a sneak peek when we attended the taping this weekend!
Mickey’s 90th Spectacular filmed in southern California recently, and the DFB was invited to attend. You know our Disneyland correspondent Heather (@DiningInDisney!) was all over that. And when we say she was all over it, well, just look:
Yup, Heather and her bestie Gail (always up for a costume party) slayed the fashion game from ears to toe!
Before attendees were asked to put away their phones, Heather was able to get us a quick peek at the stage and the overall styling of the television special.
Of course Mickey Mouse was in attendance and had a seat of honor right on the side of the stage!
And just like Heather and Gail, Mickey was dressed to the nines. Check out this suit! Ninety never looked so good, Mickey!
Mickey’s 90th Spectacular airs on ABC on November 4 during prime time and will feature tributes and entertainment from Kristen Bell, Josh Groban, Sarah Hyland, Bob Iger, NCT 127, and MORE! Mousekteers from the original Mickey Mouse Club will also appear! Put it in your calendar, and set your DVRs!
And in case you like to commemorate Disney everything with Mickey Ears, here’s another sneak peek — at the Mickey 90 Ears coming soon to parks on both coasts!!
The champagne-colored ears are embroidered #MICKEY90, but that’s not all!
The bow in the center of the ears is removable. Cool! Even cooler: there’s a clip on the bow that allows you to wear it as a bowtie! Hello! It’s like two souvenirs in one!
Mickey, you look great for 90, and we are thrilled to celebrate nine decades of you bringing joy to the world. (Especially since we’re sure there will be celebratory snacks. Stay tuned!)

We do this because it’s important to us as journalists to ensure not only that we give you unbiased opinions, but also that you can trust us to do so since we’re paying our own way. On rare occasions, when we are invited by a company to attend a preview as media, and when we choose to accept that invitation, we will always make you, our readers, aware of that situation. Today, we were invited by Disney World to attend their filming of Mickey’s 90th Spectacular. Note that when we attend events as media we are 1) Not required to review that event/food on any of our channels, and 2) Not required to review that event/food favorably. You can always count on DFB to give you a 100% unbiased and honest review of any event that we attend, food that we eat, or beverage that we drink. You can see more in our Disclosure Policy.
