Disneyland is paying tribute to Disney’s most iconic couple…Mickey and Minnie Mouse! Now is the perfect time to visit Disneyland to enjoy the fun celebration, save some money on park admission and enjoy the parks before the crazy starts when Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge opens. I recommend booking your trip through Get Away Today, you can purchase individual tickets or a package deal that includes tickets and a hotel. The Get Away Today vacation packages often beat the prices of booking your hotel and buying tickets separately. You can save an extra $10 off the low package price by using the discount code THRIVING10 at checkout. With the spring ticket savings, you can save up to $111 per ticket. The Get Your Ears On celebration lasts at Disneyland resort through May 2019. Here is an entertainment and food guide for the Get Your Ears On celebration.
Mickey’s Mix Magic
Every night you’ll find a music and lights show with state-of-the-art projections, lighting and lasers. The show is filled with high energy tunes and “DJ” Mickey spinning the new celebration song, “It’s a Good Time” along with remixed tunes from some of your favorite Disney songs, like “I Wanna Be Like You”, “Un Poco Loco”, “Let It Go” and more. The show lasts about 10 minutes.
You can view Mickey’s Mix Magic at the following locations:
- Main Street, U.S.A.
- Rivers of America (on the water screens, when Fantasmic! returns this spring)
- The façade of “it’s a small world”
Select nights Mickey’s Mix Magic will also include a fireworks show. The fireworks shows are usually only on the weekends. To know if there are fireworks included and to find the exact time of Mickey’s Mix Magic each night, consult the Disneyland Entertainment Schedule. Showtimes vary between 7-9:00 pm. Some evenings there are 2 shows, so if you miss the first one you can catch the second one.
Mickey’s Soundsational Parade
The Soundsational Parade returns to Disneyland in celebration of Mickey’s 90th birthday. There are colorful floats, great music and tons of your favorite Disney characters.
Watching the parade is fun, but I think it’s even more fun to see the little kids get super excited about seeing their favorite characters. This trip was just my husband and I, but watching all the little kids dance along the parade route and wave to Mickey was just plain fun to watch. This was a colorful and fun parade. During other parades Mickey is often the final float, but with this parade, Mickey was the very first one to kick off the festivities.
Get Your Ears On Food Guide
I’m not gonna lie, probably my favorite thing about the themed celebrations at Disneyland is all the limited edition food! The Get Your Ears On celebration has tons of Mickey and Minnie shaped food that is not only fun, but delicious too. You can check out the entire Disneyland food guide for the Get Your Ears on celebration, but of course we did our best to sample many of the treats and meals and we are sharing our thoughts on everything we ate. Make sure you look for the special red signs at each restaurant or food stand, the Get Your Ears On special items will not be on the regular menus.
The Mickey Cookies & Cream Shake from Schmoozies in California Adventure is probably the cutest thing I have ever seen. It addition to it being cute, it is yummy too. I highly recommend this one!
The River Belle Terrace has a Mickey Jumbo Pretzel. The hand-crafted bavarian pretzel comes with a cheese sauce and a sweet mustard sauce. Both of the dips were really yummy! You will probably have to book a reservation if you plan on dining at the River Belle Terrace. The pretzel was average, but I thought the dipping sauces were above average. I would order it again!
We tried the Fiesta Cone at the Cozy Cone Motel. It has spicy beef, refried beans, shredded lettuce, cheese sauce, sour cream, Pica da Gallo, and crispy tortilla strips. This was just okay. We much prefer the Chile Cone Queso over this one.
Have you had the hand-dipped ice cream bars from Clarabelle’s in California Adventure? They are divine! For the Get Your Ears On celebration they have special hand-dipped Mickey or Minnie Ice Cream Bars. This treat is so cute! You really can’t go wrong with ice cream and chocolate, but I think next time I will stick with the classic hand-dipped ice cream bar. I love the get the raspberry, with milk chocolate.
We also had the Sopes Trio from the Rancho del Zocalo Restaurante. It has chicken, beef, and pork served on fried corn dough with refried beans, shredded lettuce, spicy lime aïoli, and salsa roja. I’m kind of wimpy when it comes to spicy food and this was almost a little too spicy for me. I will say this looked nothing like the picture, the picture made it look all cute and Mickey shaped. Everything was just kind of plopped on the plate. It was still good, I’d order it again. We love this restaurant, we usually stop here every time we head to Disneyland.
Get Your Ears On Merchandise
With every celebration there is also new merchandise. You will find lots of festive, brightly colored merchandise featuring Mickey. I like my Disney souvenirs and shirts to be more subtle, so I didn’t find any Get Your Ears On merchandise I had to take home with me, but you can’t help but smile when you see all the happy merchandise.
