Dose of Disney: Mickey True Original Exhibition

The Mickey True Original Exhibit has officially wrapped in NYC, but I still wanted to share some of the snapshots I took while at the exhibit. I was lucky enough to be in town for work while the exhibit was still up. I went on a weekday at around 7pm and it was EMPTY! Honestly, I think I picked the perfect time to go. In photos I saw of others at the exhibit it was packed wall to wall. So, I'm glad I basically had the exhibit to myself. 

Although I went by myself, I will give hats off to the staff of the exhibit. They were so nice and took all of the photos for me! Plus, gave me multiple angles. It was for sure not their first time taking an Instagram worthy photo let me tell you. 

The exhibit itself was so cool! From contemporary art inspired by Mickey to memorabilia from Mickey Mouse Club there was a little bit of everything. Personally, I loved these neon Mickey signs and the giant Mickey printed wall. So many great photo ops! But, I also loved looking at the vintage Mickey items and of course all of the fashion pieces inspired by the big mouse himself.  

Natrually, I had to dress for the occasion, I brought two different Mickey inspired looks. The first was this fun black blazer from Nordstrom paired with a Mickey beret from the Forever 21 Mickey 90 collection. Then I threw on a Mickey sweatshirt from Primark that I picked up in the U.K. complete with a pair of Minnie ears. 

The giftshop itself had some super cool merchandise as well! I built my own t-shirt including patches and screen prints that you could pick from. Not to mention since it was close to the exhibit closing their merchandise was on sale! From pins to pens they had a ton of cool giftable items marked down. I stocked up for my family and myself. 

And of course I had to snap a selfie with the Chicago Blackhawks Mickey plush! But, overall I had such a great experience at this exhibit. If Disney ever creates another exhibit like this I highly recommend checking it out if you can! It was very well done and the staff was super friendly and fun.

Were you able to check out the Mickey 90 exhibit? Let me know in the comments if you did!
