Search

We've added the ability to use Search and Quick Preview to Mickey's Avenue via the dialogue box in the footer of the site.

Search uses Squarespace's search algorithm to help you find the content you're looking for with ease. Quick Preview allows you to see snippets of the content you might be search for below the search bar as you type to save you time.

As we introduce new features to the site this summer, Search and Quick Preview will help you get the most out of every visit to Mickey's Avenue.

Mickey's Avenue 3.0 Released

We are incredibly pleased to finally unveil Mickey's Avenue 3.0 with an all-new design, brand new blog and so much more.

Blog

With Mickey's Avenue 3, we have reintroduced a blog to the site but with an-all new twist for us. Rather than trying to break the news, we're going to provide our commentary on it.

We'll be linking to trusted news sources, providing a snippet of their article, and sharing our own thoughts on the latest news and notes regarding all things Disney.

To learn more, click here.

Design

With Mickey's Avenue 3, we're introducing a brand new user interface for the first time in over 3 years with a focus on the content and a design that makes colorful graphics POP. Take a look around!

Logo

Finally, we're also introducing brand new logos which were created by our good friend and graphic designer Jeffrey Rey of JReyDesigns.com

Pardon our Pixie Dust

Today we are announcing an extensive refurbishment of MickeysAvenue.com that will be completed in May.

During the refurbishment, the user interface will be stripped down with very little color (ie. personality) and a lot of Tinkerbell graphics asking you to Pardon our Pixie Dust. We promise it's only temporary.

To give you some insight into what we're working toward, check out the sneak previews of our new blog and community.

See you in May.
