On Sunday, January 21 both Disney Springs in Florida and Downtown Disney in California will be prematurely celebrating National Polka Dot day with all things Minnie Mouse.
The celebration actually begins now at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique on both coasts, where guests can now choose a mini-makeover option that includes a polka dot tutu, t-shirt with bow, and Minnie Mouse hairstyle. Packages can be booked in advance by calling 407-WDW-STYLE in Florida or 714-781-STYLE in California. Guests receiving the Minnie Dot Package Makeover from January 18 through 22 at Disney Springs will be eligible for a complimentary Minnie Mouse dessert at Amorette’s Patisserie, located right outside the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique entrance to World of Disney.
Pandora jewelry is already celebrating as well, with a new Minnie Mouse gift set that is available now. The set comes with three Minnie-inspired charms and guests will receive a complimentary Minnie scarf with their purchase, while supplies last.
Sunday is when the fun really begins, with tons to do and see on both coasts. From the Parks Blog:
Guests can discover over fifteen retail offers from Jan 18 – Jan 22, including savings at American Threads, Basin, Arribas Brothers, JOHNNY WAS, Luxury of Time by Diamonds International, Sperry, Sugarboo & Co. and Volcom. At Alex and Ani, the first 100 guests each day will receive a free gift along with daily in-store surprises. At Coach, a free gift with any purchase is in the bag for all event guests. M.A.C. Cosmetics is also participating with a complimentary “mini” Minnie-inspired demo. A handful of food and beverage locations (Blaze Fast Fire’d Pizza, Joffrey’s Coffee and Tea, Paddlefish, D-Luxe Burger, The Ganachery and Sprinkles) will feature discounts and/or Minnie-themed products as well, so bring your appetite, too.
On January 21, the main event showcases a DJ Dance Party in the heart of Town Center from 1 – 6 p.m. where Minnie Mouse will make frequent appearances. I’ve been told to expect a few wardrobe changes, and can’t wait to see which of her many signature looks she’ll sport. Keep an eye out for a photo backdrop sponsored by PANDORA Jewelry; Disney PhotoPass photographers will be on site to capture the moment with fun props and frames to ensure you strike your most stylish pose. If you want to start the party early, Paddlefish will offer a “polka dot brunch” from 12 – 3 p.m. that infuses a bit of pampering to the meal: complimentary hand massages from L’Occitane and make-up applications from Sephora are on the menu.
Guests at Downtown Disney District in California can also look forward to Minnie Mouse-inspired activations throughout the day on Sunday, January 21. Shoppers will be treated to polka dot and event specific product, including exclusive Minnie Rocks the Dots product at World of Disney, Minnie Mouse-inspired makeovers at Sephora, and polka dot TOMS shoes at Curl Surf. For foodies, adorable Minnie Mouse specialty apples have been created, the popular polka dot milkshake makes a return visit at Uva Bar, and fun polka dot pepperoni pizzas are available at Wetzel’s Pretzels. That’s just a small sampling of what’s in store. You’ll want to pick up a brochure starting January 18, 2018 for full discount and product details.
A DJ Dance Party will keep thing rockin’ in Downtown Disney District on January 21 from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. on the Downtown Disney LIVE! stage. As in Florida, PANDORA Jewelry has also sponsored a photo opportunity with Disney PhotoPass photographers on site to capture the moment with fun props and frames. Plus, you never know who may stop by!
To participate in the event, the only requirement is that you dress your “polka dot best.” The event is intended for guests of all ages to enjoy.
