Introducing Captain Minnie Mouse – Meet and Greets, Merchandise, Makeovers, & More!
Have you heard the news? There’s a new captain on the high seas! Captain Minnie Mouse has arrived and with her brings new nautical youth programs, new scholarships designed to empower girls and young women to pursue careers in the maritime industry while charting a course for success, and so much more!
All About Captian Minnie Mouse
Captain Minnie has been introduced to connect with young girls around the world to introduce them to maritime careers. Her goal is to spread the message of exploring new horizons by land and by sea.
For this role, Minnie has traded in her trademark polka dots for a crisp uniform with smart white pants or skirt. She also will be wearing a bright red jacket with the captain’s insignia.
Where to Meet and Greet with Captain Minnie Mouse
Captain Minne will start making appearances on all four Disney Cruise Line ships starting this month!
Thanks to Captain Minnie, Disney Cruise Line will be offering four new scholarships, one for each of the four Disney Cruise Line ships, at the LJM Maritime Academy in the Bahamas. The scholarships will be given to female cadets with aspirations to ship captains and onboard leaders. The scholarships will provide two years of study at the academy and one year of service aboard a Disney ship.
New Experiences for Children at Sea
The debut of Captain Minnie also means new STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) experiences for children in the Oceaneer Lab on all Disney Ships. Young captain hopefuls will be led by Captain Minnie Mouse in interactive STEM and problem-solving activities. Guests will see these new experiences onboard later this year.
Why Knot – Taking Nautical Fun Ashore
But that’s not all – Captain Minnie will also be bringing her talents to shore to teach children about her can-do qualities and ability to tackle any goals she sets her mind to in ports of call and homeports.
While ashore, she will be joined by a female Disney Cruise Line officer or crew member to showcase their roles in the maritime industry and spread awareness about women on the high seas.
Captain Minnie Mouse Merchandise
Not only will we be able to learn from Captain Minnie but we will be able to rock some merchandise inspired by her as well! All of this new nautical-themed merchandise will feature the slogan “You Can Call Me Captain” and will only be available to purchase on your Disney Cruise. Items include a new Pandora bracelet and Captain Minnie plush.
Captain Minnie Mouse Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique Makeover
But, it doesn’t end there! Guests who take advantage of the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique on one of the ships in the Disney Cruise Line fleet will be able to receive a Captain Minnie makeover!
