As we know, I love Club Mickey Mouse. Like, to an obsessive degree. Seeing this crop of mouseketeers on Instagram and Facebook everyday has brought me so much joy. It brightens my day and makes me want to roll around in a mountain of plush Mickeys. I love it so much!
The music has been on repeat on my phone and in my head, I am adamantly trying to copy the mouseketeers aesthetics, and I’m trying to pitch Oh My Disney through social media to let me interview/meet/party with them. (Side Note: It hasn’t worked yet)
So, to my surprise, I ended up having a Disney day planned for the Magic Kingdom the same day the Mouseketeers would be at the parks. This past Saturday, September 30th, I made my way to the parks with one goal in mind: To see the Mouseketeers.
Now, I had seen on Instagram the night before that they’d be the Grand Marshals for the parade, but I wanted to see them just roaming around the park. I had Boomerangs planned if I had the opportunity to ask for a picture. I was NOT playing around.
I eventually saw that the Mouseketeers were at different parks and I was all kinds of bummed. I wanted to do the Mickey Mouse Club March choreo with them! I decided to suck it up and get a prime spot for the parade.
They came down the parade route in the Grand Marshal car as the Mickey Mouse Club March blasted down Main Street and I was STOKED. The pink banner leading the way (above) is something I’d gladly hang on my wall. Y’all don’t even know. I was singing and jamming and my friend was over it almost immediately. BUT IT’S SO GOOD!
As the Mouseketeers went by, they pointed and shouted at me as I was jamming. I was the only one along my area of the parade route showing ANY emotion, so they seemed to appreciate that. I was THRILLED to be their biggest stan.
So, I had an Instagram Story detailing the day’s events and my various freakouts over seeing them, but I went and accidentally deleted it and I am devastated. It went from an all-time high to an all-time low mighty quickly.
Overall, I freaked and loved seeing the Mouseketeers live, I cannot wait to see more music from them, and Oh My Disney, in the words of Meredith Grey…
