And there’s plenty to celebrate about Mickey’s 90 years of entertaining the young, and young at heart, all over the world.

Think back to your favourite Disney movie, getting front-row tickets to Disney On Ice or even visiting Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California – Mickey’s been across it all! Over the years, he’s also lent his legendary image to a range of must-have collaborations So, in the spirit of his anniversary celebration, we’ve uncovered Wollongong Central’s most marvellous Mickey Mouse must-haves!
