With Disney Live! Mickey’s Music Festival set to tour Australia these summer holidays, TRAVEL is a BIG BIG thing for Mickey and the team. And the Mouse himself sat down and gave us some insider tips on travel!
Gosh, let’s just say I’ve been acting since 1928. Not bad, huh?
Well, sometimes Goofy calls me, “Mick.”
I don’t know about, “famous” but folks seem to like the cartoons I’ve been in. Oh, and lots of folks know about my club… ‘course I bet a lot of little kids know about my clubhouse too. (ha-ha).
Lately, I’ve been all over the place, there’s lots and lots of travel for Minnie and Me with our shows, and visiting children everywhere. Lately you might say that home is where you hang your guitar. (ha-ha)
Do you have a girlfriend?:
Minnie’s been my sweetheart for a long time, if that’s what you mean. She’s the best!
Oh, I like doin’ lots of stuff. Playin’ music, dancin’, fishin’, hot air balloonin’… you know? And I love to travel, it’s going to be great coming to Australia this Summer, we can’t wait.
What do you never travel without and why:
If ya ask me, it sure is hard to beat a pair of red shorts, they are a must when we pack to travel!
And my music … I like all sorts of music! If it can get me dancin’, great! If it can get a crowd dancing, that’s even better! Of course I never travel without Minnie and my friends Goofy, Donald, Daisy…
Favourite Holiday destination:
We love travelling all over the world, meeting children and making them smile and dance and sing. Australia is one of our favorites, Australian kids sing real loud!
Favourite Movie to Watch on a Plane: Gee, that’s a tough one… I really like Fantasia! It sure was fun to make. (ha-ha)
Mickey, what keeps you motivated after a long, long journey?
I guess the first thing I think about is all my pals, all over the world. There’s nothin’ like good friends to make everyday tons of fun. Yeah, they really keep me goin’.
What’s the wildest thing that has happened to you and the Disney crew? ell, between Donald’s practical jokes and Goofy almost blowin’ things up all the time, I’d have to say, “this week.” (ha-ha)
Tell me a little bit about your new musical tour and what kids can expect. A little bit, huh? OK, how about three words: “Rock and roll!” (ha-ha)
Of the Disney crew that travel with you, who is the most: naughty; friendly and intelligent? Let’s see… Donald sure does like to stir things up and Goofy’s awful friendly and Minnie’s really smart… Oh, and Daisy too – can’t forget her. (ha-ha)
How important to you is family and friends? Well, like I said, my I love all my friends. I think in a lot of ways, they make me who I am, ya know? If it wasn’t for them, I wouldn’t be me. That’s why I love travelling with them all too!
Why is engaging in music so important for young children as they grow? You know what I heard? I heard that kids who are into music are really good at learning all kinds of stuff, like math and science and art. Not to mention, it’s a great way to get to know other people. But maybe the most important thing to me is how much fun music can be!
I can hardly wait to see all my friends from down-under, real soon.
