John Stamos Shares Rare Throwback of ‘Full House’-era Mary-Kate & Ashley Olsen

All you Uncle Jessie fans are in for a nice surprise.

John Stamos, who played the swoon-worthy uncle on the classic ABC series Full House, is taking us back to our childhood with his latest Instagram post. Stamos shared a throwback where he is squatting next to his young co-stars, Mary-Kate & Ashley Olsen, at Disneyland. In his caption, he said, "#TBT In honor of @disneyland opening soon!"

Stamos used the post to celebrate the reopening of the theme park, after its extended closure due to COVID-19. The park's reopening comes as a relief to the 57-year-old actor, who is a well-established fan of Disney. Back in 2019, Stamos actually helped a man propose to his wife at Disney World. He shared the moment on his Instagram, saying, "To assist with an engagement anywhere is an honor but at @waltdisneyworld right as the fireworks began? That's magical. Congrats kids!"

Better yet, Stamos proposed to his wife, Caitlin McHugh, at the "Happiest Place on Earth" in October of 2018, which was commemorated with a cartoon illustration of the couple embracing in front of Sleeping Beauty's Castle. The Full House lead shared the drawing with a caption that said, "I asked...she said yes! ...And we lived happily ever after." And if you think that's all, the newlyweds also spent their honeymoon at the Orlando destination.

While Stamos is certainly excited about the Disney reopening, he can also look forward to the premiere of his new Disney+ series Big Shot, where he will star as a temperamental basketball coach at an all-girl's private school. Meanwhile, the Olsen twins (who retired from acting) have found success in their fashion endeavors. They launched their own label, The Row, back in 2006, which has received numerous awards from the Council of Fashion Designers of America.

The only magic we need is more throwbacks from the Full House era.
