It’s National Polka Dot Day, Celebrate with Minnie Mouse!
Her personality may have won the heart of Mickey, but her polka-dotted fashion sense is what won her the hearts of her throngs of adoring fans! Minnie Mouse’s reputation as the fashionista of the Disney Parks has not gone unseen by popular culture. In fact, more and more fans are gearing up to ‘rock the dots’ right alongside her on January 22 this year! If you’re visiting Walt Disney World Resort or heading into work for another day at the office, here are all the ways you can celebrate National Polka Dot Day with Minnie Mouse!
Although this National Day was likely inspired by Minnie, she isn’t taking the day off to revel in her successes- quit the opposite! If you’re visiting Walt Disney World Resort, don’t miss your chance to visit Minnie on her favorite day of the year…here is where you can meet her in her dots:
- Storybook Circus- Here, she’s decked out in pink and silver dots
- Town Square Theatre – Just in time for National Polka Dot Day! Minnie will be greeting fans with Mickey for a limited time only…and she’ll be rocking the dots!
- Epcot Character Spot- If you want classic, red and white dress Minnie, this is your stop
Rock the Dots Around the Nation
If you’re not visiting Walt Disney World today, there are countless other ways you can get in on the polka-dotted fun across the country!
If your new year resolution to get in shape is petering out, don’t give up! If you’re in the greater Los Angeles area, today is your day to give it a fun, Minnie-inspired revamp! Head to these classes led by Tracy Anderson that pay homage to Minnie Mouse.
If you’re a shopper and are visiting the Parks, your time is coming up next. If you’re not in the Parks today though, brands like Torrid, Pandora, Crocs, and Happy Feet are all debuting brand-new product lines inspired by Minnie! You can shop for the new collections online or at retail locations nationwide.
Rock the Dots
A few years ago, finding an outfit that would honor Minnie on this National Day would have been quite the difficult feat. Although her style sense may not coincide with the writers at Vogue, she’s created a massive following who demanded the ability to rock the dots…so Disney created an entire line just for us!
If you’re a bigger toy fan than me…I’d like to meet you because I’m not sure you exist. But if you share even a fraction of my love for Disney toys, you’ll love the new plush Minnie in her brand-new threads.
If you’re a fashionista yourself, Minnie-inspired bags are in no shortage!
While Disney is busy trying to make purple ears as big a craze as the Millennial Pink incarnation, us Minnie fans will be over here rocking our dotted ears, thank you very much!
