2021 marked the 50th Anniversary of the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida. It opened on October 1st of 1971 but was closed down due to Covid-19 for this momentous occasion.
But that didn’t stop Disney and Funko from releasing a whole line of awesome merchandise! Like this POP! Walt Disney World 50 Mickey Mouse vinyl figure:
Mickey is dressed like a typical tourist, complete with a Hawaiian shirt, a Dole Whip treat, and a spork. He’s switched his signature red shorts for a pair of Khakis. He’s definitely rocking his new look!
Sometimes the box for these figures can be as fun and collectible as the characters themselves:
The back of these boxes for this collection all have a foil Castle with the 50 logo. It shines and is a nice touch.
Let’s have a closer look at Vacation Mickey himself:
Check out the handle of that spork: It’s in the shape of the head of a parrot. Very tropical!
By the way, a ‘spork’ is a spoon-shaped eating utensil with short tines at the tip. And now back to Vacation Mickey:
Is he getting ready to eat that Dole Whip treat or is he offering the spork to us? Nah. No one shares a Dole Whip!
Mickey meets Mickey, but will they share their treats?
