The Big Cheese is taking a trip around the world – and you just may be able to spot him! If not, there are no worries – you can always follow along on social media. Straight from the Disney Parks Blog:

How do you celebrate your birthday when you’re the “Big Cheese” at Disney? The original M-O-U-S-E? With a trip around the world, of course.

Mickey Mouse, who will mark his birthday on November 18, has just embarked on a trip around the world. Over the next few weeks, he will make surprise appearances in iconic locations to celebrate his birthday with his fans. You’ll be able to follow Mickey’s adventures on various social channels, including: Disney Parks Blog, Disney’s Mickey Mouse Facebook page, Mickey Mouse Instagram account, or using the hashtag #HappyBirthdayMickey.

Then on November 18, select locations at the Disneyland and Walt Disney World Resorts, as well as Disney Stores around the United States, will distribute commemorative “Happy Birthday, Mickey!” buttons. Disneyland park in Anaheim will host a special pre-parade birthday celebration for Mickey, and at Magic Kingdom Park in Orlando, characters and performers will dance in a special birthday-themed edition of the Move It! Shake It! Dance & Play It! Street Party. Also on November 18, fans can enjoy a new video highlighting Mickey’s travels around the world, which will also feature the new song, “What We Got.”
