The special video sees Mickey Mouse rushing from corner to corner all over the resort, meeting up with other characters who are shown to be preparing their entertainments for the upcoming Magical Party.
Several of the scenes were obviously filmed at the same time as some of the still photo shoots we’ve been seeing this past week, but — along with giving a first look at the Stars ‘n’ Cars vehicles as they’ll appear in Paris — there is one huge, enormous spoiler in here… the music!
We posted the lyrics just yesterday and only introduced the concept of this new song — “It’s Mickey’s Magical Party Time” — just last week, but already, here it is! Well, almost… as you might guess from the synthesised opening, this is actually a special remix of the song. Far more “dance” flavoured than the true number, and in fact likely to be the version heard during It’s Dance Time… in Discoveryland.
Here’s the video:
And a series of stills:
Mickey rises bright and early to begin another day of hard work…
Another close-up of the Minnie’s Party Train concepts — note that the third carriage will be different again from both the first and second.
Mickey arrives in the Stars ‘n’ Cars garage to surprise Goofy
Mushu steals the show in Mulan’s car
Characters polish up their cars
Mickey peers through a curtain to see Playhouse Disney — via greenscreen!
In the Radio Disney studios, Stitch prepares his beats to some wild camera work
The characters rehearse their moves for “It’s Party Time… with Mickey and Friends” backstage — with the show’s additional stars from The Jungle Book and The Lion King
Mickey emerges from the baloons…
That’s Mickey’s Magical Party!
As for the “It’s Party Time!” song, hearing a slightly wacky dance remix before the real thing maybe isn’t the best way to be introduced to the new theme music of the year, but what do you think so far? Is this another Disneyland Resort Paris song destined to stay with you almost every hour of the day?
