Great Ideas and Tips for Disney's Minnie Rocks the Dots Promotion!

Fashionistas across the nation are getting ready to #RockTheDots for Minnie Mouse on January 22, National Polka Dot Day. The style-icon will be honored coast to coast with events at both Disney Springs at Walt Disney World Resort and Downtown Disney District at Disneyland Resort. If you’re local, dress in your polka-dotted best and head to either one of these locations for celebrations that include special photo opportunities, entertainment, a commemorative button, discounts and giveaways. 

At last year’s event, Minnie fans were invited to take photos with Minnie in her custom Christian Siriano dress and shop exclusive Minnie merchandise at the Dot Shop. Earlier this week, the 2017 Minnie Rocks the Dots VIP event took place on the rooftop deck of Andex Hotel in West Hollywood, California. At this event, Minnie Mouse arrived in an Olympia Le-Tan designer dress to announce the spring 2017 UNIQLO “Minnie Mouse Loves Dots” collaboration.

Designing a dress for my favorite childhood icon was quite an exciting thing to do. I tried to stay true to what Minnie usually wears but adding my personal touch. The sequins make the dress rather festive, which is great as we are celebrating this new collaboration.” – Olympia Le-Tan

03_Minnie Mouse Rock The Dots_National Polka Dot Day_Tips From The Disney Diva_Marie DivaHeading into one of the Disney parks on Jan. 22? This is the perfect opportunity to DisneyBound as Minnie! DisneyBounding is when you wear an outfit inspired by a Disney character. This is not a costume, but an actual outfit that you can wear out to dinner or in public in general, without looking costume-y. Have fun with the accessories! Many times, it’s these details that really tell which character you’re DisneyBounding as. So, wear those cute bows and classic polka dots, inspired by Disney’s First Lady!

Another fun way to participate in the festivities, is to visit one of the five Alfred Coffee locations in Los Angeles. In honor of Minnie Rocks the Dots, you can find four unique Minnie-inspired coffee sleeves and enjoy Minnie art walls in three of the locations, throughout the month of January. You can check them out in this adorable promo video. Visit on Jan. 22 and pick up a free pair of exclusive Minnie Mouse ears while supplies last!

If you’re like me, and can’t make it to #RockTheDots in person (*tear*), that doesn’t mean you have to miss out on all the fun. Show off your #DisneySide at home! You can visit the Disney Store or for an entire line of Minnie Rocks The Dots products, including apparel, accessories and more. Disney Diva Tip: If you have a Disney Visa Card, you can get a free Minnie Mouse Tsum Tsum with any puchase at your local Disney Store this weekend, January 21st & 22nd! Get creative! Throw a Minnie-inspired tea party with polka dotted cakes, cupcakes, or cookies. Get your Pinterest on, and create Minnie Mouse crafts. Whatever you do to #RockTheDots, be sure to join in the fun by tagging your own photos with both #MinnieStyle and #RockTheDots on Twitter and Instagram all weekend long.
