From Walt Disney's birthday to the big Disney Channel news revealed this week, there's been a lot to be happy about Disney-wise.

Calling all fellow Disney devotees, today is Walt Disney's birthday! Yes, it's time to celebrate the man behind the magic!

Actually, we have a lot to celebrate - Disney Channel, Disney XD and Disney Junior are now streaming on DStv Now! Time to get your Disney fix on the go anytime, anywhere!

Any Disney fan would know that the most famous mouse in the world Mickey Mouse is the mascot of The Walt Disney Company. Since his first official appearance in the Steamboat WIllie short he's captured the hearts of both young and old. He's approaching a pretty big milestone: turning the big 9-0 in 2018! Can you believe it? 90 years of magic and fun!

See why we can't get enough of the little guy by watching the video below:

Mickey and the gang have kept us entertained for many, many years and are the icons of the beginning of greatness. If it weren't for Mickey we wouldn't have great classics such as Snow White and the Seven Dwarves, The Lion King, 101 Dalmatians, Mulan, The Little Mermaid and so many others. 

That's not all, did you hear about Disney Channel now being available to DStv Compact Plus and DStv Compact customers? Oh boy, that means even more fun for everyone! We're going totally crazy from the news! Not too sure what to start watching first? We've got a list of Disney shows to stream and enjoy to help you out!

Happy Birthday to Walt Disney and let's start the celebrations until Mickey's big 90th in 2018!
