This week, D23, The Official Disney Fan Club, celebrated the 40th anniversary of the cult classic “Disco Mickey Mouse” album. Do you remember it?

The celebration was a throwback roller skating party held at the Moonlight Rollerway rink in Glendale (near the Imagineering offices).

Guests enjoyed traditional roller rink concessions in between discoing the night away on wheels.
