There wasn't a Mickey's Birthday Parade this year. The "Flights of Fantasy" parade had made it's debut in the summer of '83 along with the opening of the "New Fantasyland." And since Mousercise was the latest rage, kids could join Kellyn from the Disney Channel TV Show for some aerobic fun over by It's A Small World.
The Disney Channel was also making it's debut in 1983. This ad is from the back cover of the guide.
In 1982 and 1983, guests were handed a free gift at the main entrance during Mickey's Month. This year's gift was a headband that could be worn during your Mousercise workout. To see a photo of some kids at Disneyland actually wearing these as they worked out with Kellyn, click here for a great vintage photo from blogger, "Disney On Parole."
Unfortunately, I did not take any pictures during this "Mickey's Month" visit like I had the previous year, but I'm going to include a couple extra items from around the same time to make up for the short post today. This first one is a newspaper ad from 1983 for the Disney Channel.
And this last item is for the California Teachers Association Party that was held at Disneyland in November of 1983. Admission to Disneyland, plus unlimited use of all attractions and shows for only $7.00...and parking was included! What a deal!
