It All Started With a Mouse

On this day 87 years ago, Steamboat Willie debuted, introducing the world to pop culture’s favorite lovable little mouse. And, oh, how far he’s come!

The Mouse has been entertaining and inspiring kids and kids-at-heart for generations now, in theme parks and movies, books and games. I’ve been to WDW five times now, and can’t wait to make it six when I run the Dopey Challenge in 2017.

Most recently Dear Boyfriend and I went this summer, and I’ve gotta say, the magic and excitement of hugging the characters and getting their autographs only becomes more and more special over time!

If eating Mickey’s face in waffle form is wrong, I don’t want to be right.

So, happy birthday, Mickey! In the spirit of the day, let’s all chime in together, M-I-C-K-E-Y M-O-U-S-E!!
