Disney’s iconic stars Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse will be in Nairobi this weekend, thanks to a very special initiative by DStv, GOtv and Disney to celebrate great kids’ television! The famous duo will be spending the weekend at Westgate Mall and you could meet them between 11:00 and 16:00 on either Saturday or Sunday!*

And the good news is that entry is FREE so simply come along with your kids and enjoy! Kids can have their photograph taken with Mickey Mouse or Minnie Mouse and there will be coloring in activities as they wait for their turn to meet Disney’s wonderful characters. Plus young fans will also get the chance to learn the popular ‘hotdog’ dance!

With the Disney Junior channel, home to Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse, available on DStv, DStv Mobile and GOtv, this weekend’s fun is the ideal way to highlight the channel and its range of great family friendly programming.

In addition to the highly engaging Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, the channel also screens Jake and Neverland Pirates, Doc McStuffins, Jungle Junction, 101 Dalmations, Handy Manny, Little Einsteins, Special Agent Oso, The Hive, Art Attack and the Mini Adventures of Winnie the Pooh!

Disney Junior is Disney’s preschool brand, which has been carefully developed for kids and parents to enjoy together. It’s the place where magical storytelling comes to life and delivers special entertainment with heart whilst incorporating specific learning and development themes.

According to MultiChoice Kenya General Manager Danny Mucira, this weekend’s festivities should be a magical moment for young fans. “We know that these two incredible characters are universally loved by young children and so to have them here in Nairobi is very exciting and lots of fun. This event is definitely something we’re hugely pleased to be part of and we’re looking forward to seeing many of our viewers at Westgate on September 1st and 2nd! ”

Christine Service, Country Manager of the Walt Disney Company Africa, adds, “We are thrilled that both Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse will visit Kenya together for the first time ever.”

In addition to Disney Junior, two other Disney channels are available on DStv. The boy-focused, girl- inclusive Disney XD channel (DStv channel 304) includes a compelling mix of live-action and animated programming, hyper-targeting boys and their quest for discovery, accomplishment, sports, adventure, music and humour. Programs to watch include Ultimate SpiderMan, Zeke and Luther, Phineas and Ferb, Lab Rats, Kickin It, I’m in the Band, Pair of Kings and Tron Uprising.

Meanwhile the Disney Channel (DStv channel 303) is packed full of great live action sitcoms such as Jessie, ANT Farm, Good Luck Charlie, Austin & Ally, The Suite Life on Deck, Wizards of Waverly Place, Jonas LA and Shake It Up.

So whether you watch Disney at home or see Mickey and Minnie in action at Westgate this weekend, be sure to share in the magic of Disney!
