  • Mickey's 60th birthday (1988)

    I've had this picture "signed" by mickey saying thank you for coming to his birthday party since I can remember. Anyway.. I did some research it turns out it was from mickey's 60th birthday. I don't remember much because I was 3.. haha. I've searched high and low for another glossy photo like mine and have yet to find one. While researching I found these videos, which I thought were pretty cool.. They are of the mickey mouse birthday special. Michael j. fox, roger rabbit, the cast of cheers, and john ritter. There are some old commercials too. Love to hear you're feedback, and I hope you enjoy this little bit of yesterland.

    I wish I could have been there! But I was born that year...there are so many things that happened in 88 that I would have loved to see...like the State Fair thing.

        Ya know I have that picture too, I think It's in my Mom's cedar chest along with a button celebrating Mickey's birthday. I vaguely remember eating cake I must have been either 3 or 4 depending on when we went. In fact that could have been my first trip to Disneyland. thanks for posting this it brought back a few lost memories, I'll have to see if my Mom still has that photo.

          Mickey should celebrate his birthday at Hooters!

            I turned 6 that year and was so excited to spend my birthday w/ Mickey. They had the birthday party - i think at the Carnation Plaza. I remember I had leaned down to pick something up and stood up and bonked my head on the table really hard and started crying. At that point Mickey came out and saw me crying and came over and picked me up held me through everyone singing Happy Birthday to Him. That's one of my favorite Disneyland memories.

              thats a pretty awesome memory.. I wish I could remember our trip. All I remember is getting a balloon, how thrilling that was, meeting Cinderella, and fireworks..

                Where did that nametag come from? I worked at Disneyland in 1988, every weekend, and was not issued one of those. Don't remember seeing it then, either. Perhaps from the Studio?

                  Ah 1988, my second trip to Disneyland. I was 9. I remember Mickey's 60th birthday, I got a button somewhere in my collection for the event. I also remember State Fair and the Disneyland Olympic Team Salute. I got a bunch of the free pins they were giving at the gate for the Olympic Team Salute. I also remember Splash Mountain was under construction.

                    I didn't go until 1989. Missed by one year.

                      Were you issued this nametag?



                      If not, perhaps these were not used by the regular hordes of onstage cast members, and just limited to backstage and TDA people who were involved with the promotions. That's the difficulty with Disney archaeology. Sometimes it's hard to find someone who really knows, especially since these nametags are 20+ years old. Now why do I feel like Marcus Brody all of a sudden? :lol:

                          I remeber the old Disney channel promotion and Mickey's Birthdayland at the Magic Kingdom. Plus the Disneyland coverage in Disney News. Does anyone else remeber that magazine before it become Disney Magazine?

                            I believe it was Magic Kingdom Club. Greg McNaugten who does Imagineering My Way has a page for it at his site Imagineeringmyway.com Monkey Joe.

                            EDIT

                            It was Disney News for Magic Kingdom Club Members.
