Where is Minnie Mouse in Disney World? (Minnie Themed Giveaway! Ends 7/31 US)

This post contains affiliate links.

Be sure to check out the giveaway at the bottom of the page! Ends 7/31/17.

No Disney World trip would be complete without visiting Minnie Mouse, so where can you find her? Well, the answer is pretty simple: just about everywhere!  (Keep in mind that Disney is constantly changing, so while this information is true now, it might not be true when you visit.)


Currently, there is a Character Meet & Greet with Minnie Mouse at all four Disney World Parks.  You can get your picture together, get Minnie's autograph, and give her a hug.  Here's what to look for on your park map to find Minnie:

Magic Kingdom
  • Pete’s Silly Sideshow (across from Dumbo) -- There are no FastPasses for this attraction.  This is indoors.  (Pictured above.)

Epcot
  • Character Spot -- FastPasses are available, and I would recommend them for this attraction.  The lines, while indoors, can get quite long. (Pictured below.)

Hollywood Studios
  • Mickey and Minnie Starring in Red Carpet Dreams (on Commissary Lane) -- No FastPasses available.  A large portion of the line is outdoors, although it is shaded and has fans. 

Animal Kingdom
  • Adventure Outpost -- FastPasses available.  The line is indoors. 


Additionally, Minnie Mouse might visit you during a character dining experience or even stop by your Disney resort!  Have you met Minnie Mouse?

Joovy Cabboose Ultralight Giveaway (Ends 7/28) US


It's Groovy Joovy Week at Thrifty Nifty Mommy. So far we've seen reviews and giveaways for the Joovy Caboose stroller, Joovy Tricycoo 4., the Joovy Zoom360 Ultralight Jogging Stroller, and the 2017 Joovy Room Playard and Nursery Center. Janessa is wrapping up the week today by sharing her review of the Joovy Caboose Ultralight Stroller and we've got a giveaway for one too!

Here's some basic info about the Joovy Caboose Ultralight Stroller:

The new Caboose Ultralight Graphite is the most lightweight, compact and efficient double stroller. Designed for two children of different ages, it is preferred by parents for its practicality. With new upgraded features and an even lighter frame, the Caboose Ultralight Graphite continues to empower older children by giving them a choice to stand or sit while strolling. The Caboose Ultralight's design has been improved with a new graphite-colored aluminum frame and it is 10% lighter than the previous Ultralight model. At 22 lbs. fully configured, it is lighter than some single strollers. A new rear canopy attachment provides shade for the child sitting in the back. The new parent organizer also holds two beverages and has a convenient zippered pocket for keys, phone or wallet. A universal infant car seat adapter is included and fits most car seats on the market. This handy accessory converts the stroller into a travel system, allowing the older child to stand on the rear stand-on platform. The storage basket is ample enough for a diaper bag. Sealed ball bearing wheels provide superb maneuverability and the 4-wheel suspension make for a smooth ride. The linked rear parking brake adds extra security when the stroller is parked. In addition, the Caboose Ultralight has the most compact fold for a double stroller. If your children are within 2 years of each other, you may consider the optional Caboose Rear Seat, which converts the rear bench seat into a front-facing, full-size, reclining seat. This accessory is sold separately and it folds up with the stroller for convenience. It's also easy to install or uninstall. The Caboose Ultralight Graphite is a versatile tandem stroller that offers the size, weight and maneuverability of a single stroller without compromising features!

I'm teaming up with a few other great bloggers to bring you a giveaway for a Joovy Caboose Ultralight Stroller!

It's Groovy Joovy Week at Thrifty Nifty Mommy. Every day this week (Monday through Friday) there will be a new Joovy product highlighted! So far we've seen reviews and giveaways for the Joovy Caboose stroller, Joovy Tricycoo 4., and the Joovy Zoom360 Ultralight Jogging Stroller. Today Janessa is sharing her review of the 2017 Joovy Room Playard and Nursery Center and we've got one to give away to one lucky reader too!

Here's some basic info about the Joovy Room Playard and Nursery Center:

The new Joovy Room Playard and Nursery Center offers convenience and functionality in a contemporary design. This premier, full-featured nursery center is a bassinet, changing station and playard, all-in-one. The full-size bassinet on the Room holds an infant up to 15 pounds. Both the bassinet and changing table are removable. A notable feature is the Room's flip-away changing table, it has a sturdy and comfortable vinyl top (not fabric) so it's super easy to wipe down and can support a baby up to 25 lbs. When not in use, just flip over the changing table so it's out of your way. The removable diaper organizer has several compartments to hold wipes, diapers, lotions and more. The giant side pocket is perfect for storing blankets or additional Joovy Room Fitted Sheets. One waterproof cotton sheet that works in the bassinet or playard floor is included, additional fitted sheets are sold separately. The Joovy Room Playard and Nursery Center has two wheels making it easy to move around your home and it includes a zippered travel bag for when you are on the go.
