I was invited by Disney to an early preview of Mickey: The True Original Exhibition as press. All opinions are my own.
Last week I told you guys that Mickey: The True Original was coming to NYC and yesterday I had a chance to get a sneak peak of the exhibit. I was super super hype especially coming off of watching Mickeys 90th Spectacular so I was READY to be immersed into ALL things Mickey and Disney.
BABY!!!! These artists did not disappoint. Mickey: The True Original takes the interactive/pop up experience to the next level as only Disney can. With each room, the artists took their love for Mickey and created in a unique way that only they could. With something different in every room, the love for the birthday boy was evident in the recreation of timeless moments in Mickey’s history and modern takes on the mouse.
Each room brings you art from a different artist and you experience Mickey in new ways in what feels like every few steps. Along the way there are special moments too, like hidden Mickeys in some of the rooms and a special treat once you get close to the end of the exhibit that you definitely don’t want to miss ;).

“Mickey: The True Original Exhibition celebrates 90 years of Mickey Mouse’s influence on art and pop culture. Opening in November 2018, this immersive experience is inspired by Mickey’s status as a ‘true original’ and his consistent impact on the arts and creativity in all its forms. Guests will have the chance to explore the 16,000 square-foot exhibition featuring both historic and contemporary work from renowned artists.”
Tickets for Mickey: The True Original can be purchased here. The exhibit is open November 8th, 2018 through February 2019 so you have plenty of time to make travel plans if you don’t live in New York. Trust me when I say, it’s an experience you don’t want to miss.
