Mickey's Once Upon a Christmas was released direct-to-video on VHS and DVD on November 9, 1999. Much like the nine Limited Issue DVDs, this original 1999 print was also discontinued after the Christmas holiday was over, but along with three of the Limited Issue titles (Mulan, Pinocchio and Hercules), Mickey's Once Upon a Christmas was confirmed to be a Walt Disney Gold Classic Collection title, but not until May 2000. The re-release occurred on November 7, 2000.

A Blu-ray Disc of this movie was released on November 4, 2014, alongside Mickey's Twice Upon a Christmas.

Synopsis[edit | edit source]

Disney's biggest stars shine in a magical all-new movie -- sure to become a holiday classic! Mickey, Minnie, and their famous friends Goofy, Donald, Daisy and Pluto gather together to reminisce about love, magic and surprises in three wonder-filled stories of Christmas past.

In the fine tradition of Disney's superb storytelling, Minnie and Mickey recall the year they both gave up what was most important to them for the sake of the other, making for one unforgettable Christmas. Goofy and Max retell when they experienced a series of hilarious but season-shaking events...until a visit from the real Santa made it a most magical holiday. Thinking back to when they wished Christmas was every day, Donald's nephew, Huey, Dewey and Louie, remember their dream turning into a comical catastrophe, eventually learning what true holiday sprirt is all about.

Featuring the entire cast in a finale of merry, magical Christmas songs, all the excitement of Mickey's Once Upon A Christmas is ready to unwrap for holiday family fun!
