After its debut on Main Street, many Disney fans were quick to notice a very big mistake on the statue. Corrections have taken place and Mickey’s statue is fully back on display.

Disney is celebrating its 100 years as a company and they have promised that it will be the event of a lifetime at the Disneyland Resort beginning with the opening of Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway Attraction, two brand new night time spectaculars, Wondrous Journey and World of Color-One.

The return of the Magic Happens Parade will debut February 24, 2023. The parade only ran for a month as a result of the parks closing due to the pandemic in 2020. Additionally, a newly refurbished Toontown will open March 19, 2023. See the latest progress HERE.

As part of the magic, Sleeping Beauty’s castle is adorned with elegant platinum banners featuring the Sleeping Beauty fairies. A platinum statue of Minnie Mouse stands in front of the Plaza Inn. Lastly, in Town Square, stands a platinum Mickey Mouse.

Each of the statues includes a well known Disney quote. Minnie’s reads: “A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes,” which is recited by Cinderella.

Misquote on Mickey Mouse

When Mickey Mouse’s statue first debuted at the end of January, Mickey’s quote read:  “It All Started With a Mouse.” Immediately, many Disney fans became upset noting that these are not the exact words of Walt Disney.

He said, “I only hope that we never lose sight of one thing…that it was all started by a mouse.” 

As a result of the misquote, the statue was removed. As of today, February 17th, the Mickey statue has returned to Main Street USA with the correct quote.
