Many Disney fans were excited for the Minnie Mouse: The Main Attraction Collection that was to be released each month. This collection was met with such enthusiasm that it has been postponed. Read more about the postponement of the Minnie Mouse Collection, but also see this great new attraction inspired Mickey Mouse plush that will be available this month.
The Year of the Mouse
I think we can all agree that 2020 has been quite an interesting year, but did you know that it is also the “Year of the Mouse?” One of my favorite Walt Disney quotes reminds us:
“I only hope that we never lose sight of one thing-that it was all started by a mouse.”Walt Disney
In honor of our very favorite pal, Mickey Mouse, D23 has released a new Mickey Mouse plush each month. The above photo of Golden Mickey was the first Limited Edition Mickey Mouse to be released.
These apparently have also gathered quite the following among Disney fans.
Postponing of the Minnie Mouse Collection
ShopDisney started the “Year of the Mouse” by introducing a new collection for Minnie Mouse.
The Minnie Mouse: the Main Attraction collection was set to be released the 3rd Saturday of every month and would feature Minnie Mouse representing our favorite Disney Park attractions.
Each collection included a plush, Loungefly bag, mug, pin set, and ears.
With the Enchanted Tiki Room Collection featured in May, many Disney fans were frustrated with the use of the virtual waiting rooms. Many Guests waited for hours only to find that the items that they wanted were already sold out.
We’re not sure if “Ralph Broke the Internet,” but Minnie Mouse decided to take a summer break from her collection.
Disney fans were told, “Minnie has headed on a summer vacation! Stay tuned and check back right here for the upcoming release of Series 6 through 12. You won’t miss a thing as you build your magical collection.”

Tiki Room Mickey Mouse Plush
The last collection that was available for the Minnie Mouse collection featured The Enchanted Tiki Room. This is one of my most favorite attractions in the Magic Kingdom much to my oldest daughter’s disdain.
I love that this attraction was inspired by Walt Disney himself. He purchased a couple animatronic birds in a New Orleans store and was inspired to create a dinner show featuring them. This initial idea for a dinner show was later changed to an attraction, but the true vision of Walt Disney is seen throughout the show.
The Year of the Mouse Tiki Mickey Mouse is the 7th of this series.
Standing at 16 inches, Mickey Mouse is made of both twill and corduroy fabrics and “features a Hawaiian theme with embroidered buttons, and embroidered eyes. Mickey features a commemorative gold and satin foot patch and includes a Certificate of Authenticity. He even comes in a window box featuring special Year of the Mouse packaging, ideal for collectors.”
Available for Purchase
This plush, inspired by Hawaiian Holiday, is an Amazon exclusive and will not be available on shopDisney. It will be available for purchase on July 6th at 9:00am (PST).
D23 members are given first priority to this collection. If you are a member of D23 you will receive an access link to use to secure your Tiki Mickey Mouse plush prior to the release of this newest addition to the Year of the Mouse Collection.
Available for purchase on July 6th at 9:00am (PST) only on Amazon

One of my favorite souvenirs from our trips to the Disney Parks would have to be the collectible mugs. Check out my current collection HERE.
