A Handpainted Livery Celebrates Mickey’s Toontown
The stunning hand-painted design took artists over 400 hours and 20 days to complete. This is Alaska Airlines’ eighth collaboration with Disneyland Resort.
Passengers will have the opportunity to board this whimsical Boeing 737-800, tail number 565AS, adorned with playful images of Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Goofy, Pluto, Donald Duck, Daisy Duck, Chip ‘n’ Dale, and other beloved characters from Mickey’s Toontown at Disneyland Park.
“It’s heartening how much our Disneyland Resort-themed airplanes spark joy in our guests — young and young at heart. What makes this even more special is the return of Mickey Mouse on an Alaska Airlines plane since he made his debut on our fleet eight years ago,” said Sangita Woerner, Alaska’s senior vice president of marketing and guest experience. “Alaska’s long-standing relationship with the Disneyland Resort has helped to create unforgettable experiences for our guests and employees. As a family-friendly airline, it speaks to the care we strive to show every day with these special touches.”
