As part of Mickey Mouse’s 90th anniversary celebrations, the House of Mouse brings its central character to the forefront with an interactive New York art exhibition—Mickey: The True Original Exhibition. The 16,000 sq. ft. exhibition from Disney Parks, Experiences & Consumer Products features larger-than-life multimedia art installations and photo-worthy experiences from muralists, sculptors, artists, and designers.

Other anniversary celebrations include those at Disney Parks & Resorts locations in Florida, California, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Tokyo, Paris, and through the Disney Cruise Line. To mark the date, new brand and product collaborations spanning fashion, food, consumer electronics, toys, accessories are now available worldwide.

Munchies, the Vice and Fremantle Media co-owned publisher, partners with Triple Five Media to craft a curated food court at American Dream, a 4.5 million sq. ft. shopping and entertainment complex set to open in the Meadowlands, NJ in Spring 2019. As one of two mess halls, the space will feature 14 vendors selectd by Muchies as well as a staging area. Per Digiday, Munchies will receive a brand licensing fee, plus royalties that change depending on how much revenue the food court generates.
