Mickey’s Circus….

March 29, 2012

Disney is excited to share that Mickey’s Circus is coming to town! The annual Disney Trade Celebration returns to Epcot on September 7-9, 2012.

In the coming weeks, they will be sharing some additional looks at merchandise being created for this event. Two dates are particularly important – April 11 where they will be presenting a sneak preview of pins and Vinylmation created for the event, and May 19 when registration officially begins. Why May 19? It’s World Circus Day and they thought opening reservations was a good way to celebrate.
