A Mickey and Minnie mouse birthday party: what’s not to love? These iconic characters make a great children’s birthday theme, so I hope you enjoy all these Mickey and Minnie party ideas featuring everyone’s favorite mouse (and lady mouse)!
I love the age of 3 for birthdays. Fun as the first birthday and second birthday parties are, the third is when kids are really able to fully express both their desires for a party theme and their excitement for the theme and party!
Tess was very funny when we were deciding on a theme.
One night at dinner I kept throwing out ideas and asking her questions and she said “UGH. I DO NOT CARE!” Zach said “Alright, that’s it then! Just get some cake and ice cream and call it a day” haha!
But, with time, Tess decided she wanted a “Mickey and Minnie Party.”
I loved the idea and figured it’d be a breeze to plan. Mickey and Minnie?
I mean they are iconic figures! However, it was more difficult than I’d anticipated. First of all you rarely find anything party related with BOTH a Mickey and Minnie Mouse theme. Mickey Mouse parties are everywhere, but where is his lucky lady?
And secondly, Minnie is ALWAYS in pink. I’m not hating on the pink dress version of Minnie…but when I think Mickey and Minnie I think the classic characters in their matching red, black, white and yellow. Pink Minnie just doesn’t fit to me.
So I did what I could and the party leaned a tad more towards the Mickey side than Minnie but that’s okay 😉
I love that BOTH of my girls chose more masculine characters for their third birthday parties and that they BOTH chose CLASSIC characters too! (You can see Britt’s Donald Duck party here!)
I love how Tess’s party came together! You will find links to where items are from at the bottom of the post so be sure to scroll all the way through to get all the Mickey and Minnie party ideas 🙂 It was so much fun to put together, and such a versatile themed party for little girls and boys of all ages!

Mickey and Minnie Mouse Party Ideas
The Favor Table
The favor table! I struggled the MOST with what to do for favors and ended up using treat bags where you couldn’t see the contents because I caved and bought some Mickey Mouse Clubhouse themed junky toys to fill ’em with and I didn’t want non-theme fitting items being displayed 😉 Here are some similar Mickey Mouse party favor bags!
Zach displayed them in the shape of a Hidden Mickey 😉
The kids decided what we bought for favors. Kye actually gave the most input and Tess agreed so bubbles and stamps were the winners along with a little candy too! Here are some similarly-themed favors!
I always love to display the party invite and the pics I took of the birthday kid in their birthday outfit as easy party decorations! How cute are those Minnie Mouse ears?
(You can see all the pics of Tess here!)
Even though we always make Tess’s party a swimming element, I like to have indoor activities planned in case of rain or just something fun to have!
We had to play some Pin the Nose on Mickey as one of the party games! Here is a similar game!
Mickey Mouse Party Decorations
Gift area, complete with a banner! We opted for a simple “Happy Birthday” message this time but you can find some great Etsy sellers who will personalize it with your child’s name! Here is another Mickey-themed birthday banner!
I also always like to have a craft (kids of ALL ages enjoy crafts!). All of the kids got to decorate their own Sorcerer Mickey hat! This was an easy and cute idea: all you need are blue party hats and star stickers, and you’re good to go!
Coloring pages are always good to have on hand as well as an easy way to entertain!
The birthday girl got her own special chair with Minnie and Mickey Mouse silhouette balloons 🙂
I didn’t do much of anything outside since the swimming portion technically didn’t start until after the party (and we had a HUGE storm happen that morning) but I did stick some themed placemats out in case any party guests wanted to eat outside.
Just some good old latex balloons with polka dots!
The party table!
I had the idea to do a fan design on the mirror and I was really shocked how awesome it turned out! Zach put it all together and we ended up breaking out the hot glue gun to stick the fans to the mirror.
They came off fine with no problems! Here are some similar party fans!
Funny sidenote but this Minnie is Britt’s and she loved it when she was younger and still a finger sucker and you should have seen how gross one of Minnie’s gloves was!
I guess Britt would chew on the glove! Good washing and it all came clean 😉
Minnie and Mickey Mouse Party Ideas: The Food Table
First up: Mickey and Minnie Mouse cupcakes! I wanted to keep things simple and classic, so instead of a Mickey Mouse birthday cake, we went with cupcakes. I use polka dot cupcake liners and sixlets for the toppings…
I also found some adorable Mickey head-shaped sprinkles so I did that as well on some of the cupcakes to mix it up a bit!
The big kids helped me by decorating the cups! We used white pricing stickers as white polka dots and of course, had to put the plates on display in Mickey’s ears and head formation 😉 A fun way to add some extra cute Mickey flair! Here are the cups!
Our family LOVES to find Hidden Mickeys around Disney World (well actually we look for them everywhere we go!) so the kids suggested including our love of Hidden Mickeys into the party theme.
We cut out Mickey Mouse heads and all helped to hide them around the party area for people to find. We had roughly 20 total and it was fun hiding them and seeing if people noticed 😉 The perfect way to add a little extra fun with a nod to the Happiest place on Earth!
I feel like at this point in the game I have a solid system down for my parties and they all run very smoothly when it comes to food and party prep (now the actual party itself can get pretty crunk with all the kids running wild ha!).
It didn’t take much to come up with the food we’ve had. I don’t bother with guesstimating how many people will come, I just do roughly the same amount of food every party. Sometimes we have TONS left, sometimes we run out of stuff. It all just varies!
Here are all the Mickey Mouse party food ideas we used:
This was my favorite 🙂 Two strawberries + one blueberry = a Minnie bow!
I did half peanut butter and half pb&j with a Mickey Mouse cookie cutter and these were called “Mickey’s Magical Sandwiches”
I love this recipe for a crock pot buffalo chicken!
I copied myself on this food tag 😉 I did a “Donald’s Cheese and Quackers” for Britt’s Donald party (and I think we did the “Hot Diggity Dogs” too) but wanted to reuse it. So cheese dip and mini hot dogs it was!
This time I made a FABULOUS cheesy dip: here’s the recipe!
See the Hidden Mickey?
I also copied this same banner that I’ve done for a few parties (and got the original idea from Robyn who did it for Tess’s baby shower).
It’s SUPER simple to make! You just get three dollar store table cloths and lay them out on top of each other.
Cut strips up, hang the banner where you want it, then braid the three layers part of the way down for a nice hang effect. Kye and Britt actually were HUGE helpers in making this happen! Here are some strips you can make the banner out of!
More Hidden Mickey!
I tried to get some supplies from Ali Express this year and a lot of them turned out awesome but there were also some fails…like this balloon haha! The Mickey Mouse ears wouldn’t inflate very well!
