Oh, Mickey! You can’t have Mickey without Minnie! Minnie Mouse is Disney royalty. She’s Mickey’s sweetheart, partner, and other half. There are so many ways around the Walt Disney Parks and Cruise Line to honor and celebrate Minnie Mouse! Check out some of our favorites:
NOTE: Several of these experiences are currently on hold with Disney’s phased reopening. Our hope is that these experiences come available once again soon!
1. Ears and Merchandise
You gotta get some ears. Mickey is the one who made these accessories famous, but you can wear Minnie Ears too! These adorable little cuties look amazing on anyway, whether you’re two or one hundred and two! We love the classic ears with Minnie’s signature red and polka dot bow in the center, but the special occasion and holidays ears are so fun, too!
2. Minnie Cuisine
Disney has so many awesome and exciting foods, even some that celebrate all things Minnie! Not to mention these treats are way delicious. For instance, the kids in our family obsessed with the Minnie waffles you can get at pretty much any breakfast on property. For the sweet tooth in your party, try some Minnie rice crispy treats and Minnie candy covered apples…yum! But the ultimate treat is the Minnie Kitchen Sink dessert found at the Plaza Ice Cream Parlor in the Magic Kingdom!
3. Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railroad
Come experience the adventure of a lifetime with Mickey and Minnie at Hollywood Studios! This incredible new ride is one of a kind and totally unique to the park. We love this ride because you get to be fully immersed in Mickey and Minnie’s world and be a part of their story. Not only do you get to hang out with the cutest couple ever, you’ll also see other favorites like Pluto and Goofy!
4. Live Stage Shows and Parades
One of the easiest ways to spot Minnie Mouse in Magic Kingdom is in one of the many stage shows and parades featured throughout the day. We love the stage shows and parades in the Parks. It doesn’t matter how old we get: we still choke up every time! Mickey’s Royal Friendship Faire in front of Cinderella Castle is a delightful stage show where you can see Minnie all dressed up! And the Festival of Fantasy Parade has quite the finale!
5. Meet and Greets
There is nothing as magical as seeing your child’s face light up at the sight of their favorite Disney character. Luckily there are a variety of ways to meet Minnie Mouse in the Parks and around Disney property. Minnie can often be found near the World Showcase in Epcot, on Main Street in Magic Kingdom, in her safari gear at Animal Kingdom, and even in select character meals!
Okay, so technically you never see Minnie in this Magic Kingdom attraction, but you do hear her quite a bit! Minnie’s cute little voice comes over the loudspeaker as you wait in the queue to enter the theatre. She also tells you to refrain from eating and drinking and when to put on your opera glasses and introduces her favorite musician, Maestro Mickey Mouse and the Philharmagic Orchestra! Cutest announcement ever.
7. Captain Minnie
Disney Cruise Line has recently taken steps to incorporate Minnie more into the cruise line as they have promoted her to captain! This was done in an attempt to encourage girls and young women to pursue their dreams in the maritime and STEM fields. We love seeing DCL incorporate this crucial lesson into the kids’ programs and programs around each of the four ships. In the future, kids will be able to look like Captain Minnie herself with the new offerings from Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique!
8. Minnie Vans
If you want to ride in the cutest car ever to exist, you need to order a Minnie Van. Disney’s Minnie Van service is run through the app Lyft, which allows you to order a car from anywhere on Disney property and a cast member in an adorable, little red van will come pick you up. These additional cost rides can take you between Disney parks, resorts, and even Disney Springs. Minnie Vans are also offered as airport transportation for those staying on or around Disney property. Super convenient, super Minnie.
We can’t wait for some of our favorite Minnie Mouse moments to reopen again! Keep checking back at DisneyDining.com for all the latest Disney updates!
