Sunday was National Polka Dot Day, and Disney celebrated by honoring our collective BFF, Minnie Mouse, with Rock The Dots events at Disney Springs in Orlando, FL and Downtown Disney in Anaheim, CA.
I really wanted to attend the celebration at Downtown Disney, but Southern California is the middle of some terrible rainstorms. And lest you think I’m being whiny about a little rain, please understand that So Cal doesn’t know how to handle big storms; we have inadequate drainage systems and freeways closed due to flooding and Disneyland closed four hours early on Sunday due to flooding. So yeah … this storm was the real deal and I didn’t want to get stuck in the middle of it. I had a great time staying warm and cozy inside, watching the #rockthedots hashtag on Instagram.
Contributor Lauren checked out the festivities at Disney Springs, which included photo ops and a dance party with Minnie! Lauren said Minnie “changed” her outfit a few times throughout the day, which I think is pretty cool!
Downtown Disney’s event was unfortunately very wet, but that didn’t stop guests from having a great time! A (weather protected) Rock the Dots step and repeat was set up near the stage between ESPN Zone and the AMC theaters. Thank you to Vennessa for these photos!
Vennessa also shared this flyer that was being passed out, noting the special discounts and food offerings available from Downtown Disney retailers! I’m so sad I missed out on that pink polka dot milkshake!
Here is guest Joanna showing off her polka dot umbrella and poncho! SO adorable!
Rock the Dots buttons were handed out to guests, and special Minnie Mouse candy apples were available at Marceline’s.
How adorable is this #rockthedots Minnie button given out today at downtown Disney for #nationalpolkadotday Any mouse moms enjoy the fun despite the rain?!

Even though I couldn’t make it to the official events, I did visit this amazing Minnie Mouse mural at Alfred Coffee last week.
This was at Alfred Coffee in Studio City. Three Alfred Coffee locations in Los Angeles painted Minnie Mouse murals outside their shops to celebrate Rock the Dots. They even had special adorable Minnie Mouse coffee sleeves.
I kept mine and have used it over and over again at home!
To keep the Rock the Dots party going, Disney has released some SUPER CUTE new Minnie merch! I seriously love EVERYTHING about this collection! The yellow is so refreshing! I’ll take one of everything, please.
