If you’re a big fan of all things Disney and Mickey Mouse, you’d probably already know of Pop-Up Disney! A Mickey Celebration.

For those who don’t, it is an exhibition that originated from Downtown Disney District at the Disneyland Resort in California, featuring Disney’s Mickey Mouse and his friends.

Held at the Suntec Singapore Convention and Exhibition Centre, this is its first-ever international showing outside of the U.S.

To enjoy the full Disney experience, I got to choose between Sorcerer Mickey or Minnie Mouse Headbands before entering the exhibition.

The headband is part of a Klook-exclusive bundle that costs S$35. Do note that tickets will have to be pre-booked.

Otherwise, a standard ticket would cost:

  • Adults (above 12): S$25
  • Kids (three to 12): S$20

While I was already sold by the idea of wearing the Sorcerer Mickey Mouse headbands everywhere I go, there was more to look forward to.

Instagram-worthy exhibition

This exhibition has seven different themed rooms.

Before you enter each room, scan the QR-activated codes to participate in Pop-Up Disney! Trivia because they are filled with interesting facts on all things Mickey you may not know about.

Mickey’s Friendships

Here’s a fun fact, other than the Sensational Six, do you know who else are friends with Mickey? It’s Chip ‘n’ Dale!

This part of the exhibition is a gallery created by Mickey’s friends, inspired by the mouse himself.

Take a stab at who created these artworks:

Singapore-exclusive exhibits

What sets this exhibition apart from its original California counterpart are the two Singapore-exclusive rooms.

Spot familiar Singapore icons like the Dragon Playground, the Merlion and more on the walls of this room.

Mickey at Disneyland

This Disneyland-inspired room brings the amusement park right to our shores in Singapore.

Within one room, guests can travel to Hong Kong Disneyland and pose among the popular treats such as the Mickey Bubble Egg Puff.

Mickey Mart is a non-ticketed area, which means anyone can come in to shop during exhibition opening hours.

Shoppers can get anything from kitchenware to apparel to fashion accessories and even limited edition collectibles such as XM Studios’ “Mickey Around the World” figurines.
