This panel highlighted Mickey Mouse’s influence on pop culture not just with the Mickey Mouse Disco but over whole career with a look at his past, present, and future. Starting from his early beginnings and then on though his musical journey including Mickey Mouse Club in the 1950s, 1970s, and 1990s.
The biggest highlight was a surprise appearance by Mickey and Minnie who were wearing their fancy new disco duds!
