We can’t wait to see what everyone wears as these iconic Disney songs are brought to life on ABC—and if last year’s “Disney Night” is any indication, it’s sure to be a magical “Disney Week!” You can help spread the magic, as host and executive producer Tyra Banks on Monday introduced a VIP—Mickey Mouse—“to show us some moves that each of the couples will have to include in their routines, no matter which dance style they perform.” After you learn the routine, post it on social media using #DWTSMickeyDanceChallenge!
