Minnie Mouse invited us to a very special event, Minnie’s Garden Party, happening at the Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival through May 6th!
I am so excited to get to share a little about our experience previewing this event before it officially launched yesterday.
If you have any questions feel free to drop a comment on this post, or send me a message on Instagram.
We wanted to give a special thank you to Disney for hosting us during this event.
Minnie’s Garden Party
WHAT: Meet Minnie Mouse in her all new Garden Party inspired look, take Springtime photos in front of special backdrops, and try the special event dessert!
WHERE: Epcot, inside the Odyssey Pavilion (if you come in the main gate of the park the Odyssey Pavillon will be on your left after Spaceship Earth, after the Fountain and before Mexico!)
WHEN: May 2nd - May 6th. Minnie Mouse will be meeting guests between 11am and 4pm each day. The dessert will be available as long as the Pavilion is open for the day.
I want to add here that a the backdrops and photo props that you see in some of these photos below will remain in the Odyssey Pavilion until Flower & Garden Festival closes on June 3rd. It’s just Minnie Mouse and the dessert that are only visiting until May 6th.
We had a feeling Minnie Mouse was going to surprise us at her Garden Party but I wasn’t fully prepared for the adorableness that was her new Springtime look! I love a theme, and it looks like Minnie designed her dress to go right along with some of the Festival merchandise.
I love the entire area they have set up for this, with the grass, and the trellis and the cute backdrop, you really feel like you are in Minnie’s garden!
Of course Cam and I had to get a few photos with the Gardening Queen herself to thank her for including us in this event. She really gave us the VIP treatment, but would you expect anything less from such a perfect hostess?
There were photo props and signs you could also use for your photos in this area as well. Don’t forget they even though Minnie Mouse is leaving on May 6th, you can still take cute photos with your Minnie girls like the one below through Festival end!
Minnie also invited one of her florist friends to come help us make special Flower Crowns for the event. Even though this was a treat she planned just for us, she told us there will be some cute Flower Crowns available for purchase during her Garden Party.
The other photo area they have set up is this rose wall, with a little white picket fence. Here they had some more props to use including this basket, a frame, and even a little gardening hat on a stick! So fun! These will stay in the Odyssey Pavilion until the Festival ends on June 3rd as well.
Can we talk about how Minnie and I didn’t plan to match so well but we totally do. Just a couple of girls who love to dress on theme.
In addition to Minnie Mouse meeting in her new outfit, through May 6th during her Garden Party you can also try Minnie’s Garden Cake, a special dessert just for this event.
In addition to photo opportunities, meeting Minnie Mouse and trying that delicious cake you can also shop the entire Minnie’s Garden Party collection inside the Odyssey Pavilion as well!
I love all of the signage and little details they added for Minnie’s Garden Party. It’s a really special pop up event and I hope that we see more things like this in the future!
Thank you again to Disney and Minnie Mouse for hosting us during this special event. Make sure you are following @minniemouse on Instagram to hear her new theme song they debuted at the event for us as well!
P.S. During the event they also let us know that Chef Minnie will be joining Chef Mickey for some of the festivities at Food and Wine festival, I am so excited to see what she’s been cooking up for that!
